"Mirrycle" bike mirrors are the best ever, been using them for years, all the bike stores that sell them are out of stock within a couple months. This has been discussed many times before with the same results.

They do not meet requirements for the purpose and other than provide shade and airspace for cooling have little value as they will provide little to no protection in a fall as they come right off and are devoid of the energy absorbing foam that a rated helmet is equipped with.
