If you read the other reviews you will see that several have complained about the main zipper. It is definitely a legitimate complaint. It is sometimes tough to get started and it is a shame they went the cheap route on this part of the jacket. However, it is also a very inexpensive jacket that looks great, has plenty of pockets and is well thought out. It is perfect for San Diego weather. I really like that I can walk into a store with it on and not feel out of place.
I was torn on whether to purchase the medium or large. I went with the large and it fits perfectly. I'm 5'7", 160 lbs, 31" waist if that helps anyone.

Yes, I recommend this product.

First of all I should mention that I ride a scooter (125cc) on surface roads and never exceed 55 mph. This is my daily commuter. I purchased this helmet to replace a Icon full face helmet that was leaking air through the face shield. One of my requirements for a new helmet was a drop down sun shade (I also tried the HJC IS-16 and Exo-500). This helmet was more comfortable than the other two and felt lighter as well. The field of vision is incredible and I definitely think of this as a safety plus. I love the micro lock chin strap, I can quickly take on/off my helmet, even while wearing gloves. I bought the pinlock insert based on other reviews and installed it before my first ride. No fogging issues whatsoever, I'm definitely sold on the pinlock for future helmets as well.
The only negatives I can think of are two: It is noisier than my prior helmet, although nothing unbearable for my use. Secondly it is a bit round looking from ear to ear, I kind of feel like a Space Ball when looking in the mirror.
Yes, I recommend this product.
