I bought this for hot summer trips. I got the gray to minimize the solar oven effect. If it came in white I may have even gone there. Several of the other brands had too much black on the shoulders even in the colors. I will probably not use the armor, even though it is advisable. I am after all replacing tee shirts and sunscreen with more than just a mesh jersey. Even without the pads there is heavier slide material at the pad points, but of course no impact protection.
The fit for a 6'6" 260 pounder is good in the XL Tall. Tried the 2XL Tall but it was looking for wider shoulders than mine even with the pads. These are truly American cut.
The air flow is very good with or without the pads, except for a couple of inside pocket areas up front. I will most likely be cutting out the inside pockets in favor of more air flow - one left (phone); one large bottom right (worst offender).
Yes, I recommend this product.

This helmet ran small for my wife. The head measurement was at the top end of an XS. We ordered a small. It was very tight in the face. We ordered 20mm cheek pads to try that. The installed ones were 30mm in the small. With the smaller pads she noted that the crown felt like it was riding high. We returned the helmet for a medium. The medium came with 20mm pads. It still felt too snug, so we returned the original 20mm replacement pads for 10mm ones. Wish the helmet came with the pads as a separate item, so that you could return them rather than just throw them out. Or store them someplace safe, which is the same thing in our house.
The inner sun visor could come down a little farther. But she likes the final helmet.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought a GM67 helmet for my wife after measuring her up as a small. The helmet was way to tight at the cheek pads (30 mm). I ordered the 20 mm pads to try. They were better, but now she noticed the crown didn't sit right. I returned the helmet for a medium. The medium came with 20 mm pads. It was still a little too snug for her taste, so I returned the extra 20 mm for a set of 10 mm. If the 10's break in too loose I still have the 20's. I think I'd rather see the helmet come with the pads as a separate item that you could return for a better size if needed. It would prevent unused trash.

They have good leverage. I filed down some of the contact edges as soon as I received them. They weren't bad, but felt sharper than I wanted near the inner tubes tubes. The price is right.

Kept my painted rims painted. Tougher than the slit garden hose that I'd been using. Can get by with one set, but the second set put me over the reward threshold. Plus it is added protection.

I bought this to adapt to another GPS ball mount already mounted on the bars. I prefer using my smaller car GPS and this mount, but the mounted ball is for a larger waterproof case that I use when it rains. The mounted ball is too small for the Ram system, so I did not purchase the pivot adapter. (I am using a very short piece of heater hose for that.)
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is my first motorcycle communication unit upgraded from hand signs.
Use: The device itself is fine. It works mostly as reviewed and expected. They paired easily with my phones and GPS. With a shielded open face helmet, during phone calls I have gotten comments of background noise as if in a car with the windows down the noise reportedly decreases during actual talking. I have some experimenting to do with a small fabric under skirt piece on the shield at the mic position. I will report back on that.
Packaging: The headsets should be packaged separately from the receivers, so that you have the option of which helmet style to pick. I have both open and full face helmets so I can use the included fixed boom mic versions, and have also purchased two full face / wired mic headsets. Sena has receivers only, marketed as "type 1" upgrades that can be puchased independently. Then you can by the headset of chioce. Maybe not as initially cost effective, but if you don't want the fixed boom mic style add +/- $35 to each helmet cost on the standard sets. (my bang for your buck rating - can mean added $70 for dual set.)
My personal wish list: 1) Add an extention wire piece for the wired mic version to increase the mic wire length about 8 inches or so. (I am thinking of using the wired mic on an open face shield, and need routing length for ups and downs.) 2) Make the fixed boom mic a socket connection at the base for those times where you don't want / need the mic. (It is just in the way if you are out on a get-away-from-it-all ride.) (I know, I know ... use the full face helmet instead ... then again why not the car, or minivan ... or just stay home and sit in front of the fan.)
All in all: These are great. Time will tell on durability. As with all things motorcycle, we are only limited by our bank books.
Yes, I recommend this product.
