Apparently I have larger cheeks than most people because I always need to swap out the cheek pads. I traded my 20mm stock XD3 pads out for these 12's and am very happy with the fit and the break in on them.
They break in about 2mm on the 12's vs about 4mm on the 20's

I got this helmet in trade from a fly trekker DS. The fit was large, and didn't fit my head as well as I'd hoped but I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the helmet and the fit and finish.
Also I love the ratchet chin strap I wish my Arais had them. Overall I wish it would have fit me better it was a great helmet at a great value.

This is a decent glove. The fingers are a little long for my hands, but overall I like the fit. Probably a little high in the price point but I am happy with them.
they have great lever grip and give full confidence on the bars.

 Arai XD-3 Bosch Helmet
Arai XD-3 Bosch Helmet
Arai XD-3 Bosch Helmet High-flow peak channels air directly into the front vents. Twin-cam Shield Pivot System allows the face shield to operate fully under a peak that can be lowered for better aerodynamics. Can be configured with shield and peak, peak only (for use with goggles) or shield only. Fully Removable/Replaceable and washable liner with optional sizes available for a custom fit. 4 top vents. Dual Intake / Dual Exhaust Ventilation-dual I/C top intake vents and Double Delta bridged exhaust vents designed to draw significant volumes of air from helmet interior. CLC (Complex Laminate Construction) shell-fiberglass composite is stronger and lighter-allows use of softer, less-dense liner materials inside for increased rider comfort. Efficient chinbar vent (with interior and exterior controls) flows fresh air to the mouth area or across the shield interior to help prevent fogging. Large chinbar side exhaust vents draw out additional hot air. Meets or exceeds Snell and D.O.T. standards. Note The peak/visor supplied is not suitable for high-speed use where air striking a side or main surface of the peak may cause difficulty in returning the head to a forward and/or level position

I had originally bought a Fly Trekker DS helmet, but found the fit to be way too tight in the cheeks, I then went with an AFX FX39 and stepped it up a size, it was much too large.
After some debate I decided to go with the Arai XD3 because it was on sale from 699 down to 459 for the bosch black color scheme.
The only thing I wish that was available was custom cheekpads included at this price. I knew I needed the 12mm pads instead of the stock 20's but I understand the need to buy it that way, just wish I didn't have to.
First time out with the helmet, I noticed it fogging up a lot but I attribute that to the fact it was 15 degrees and I didn't have the vents set up right. I bought this helmet as an off-road helmet for use on my 755 raptor. Trail riding I don't want to wear goggles, so I thought this would be a good solution to that. Fit and finish of the helmet is fantastic.
For me this is the perfect helmet so far. I don't think I would have bought it for 700 but with the 459 sale on it, it is a perfect solution for my needs. It will never see on road riding, but I have no doubt it will protect me in the trails.
