I use this with my Galaxy Nexus. Anything wider probably won't fit as I have the fingers at max width. The phone does fit in securely and does not budge, however, it does block off the power button on the right if you configure the cradle with all 4 fingers. I might reconfigure it using 3 fingers, placing the one on the power button side in the center.
Now I just need a glove that will work with the touch screen.

Icon IC-02 Pro Shield Faceshield The Pro Shield from Icon distinguishes itself from the Icon Classic Shield by means of the helmet shield lock. Icon made the switch in 2010 and all of the newer models (listed below) now take the ICON Pro Faceshield. The exception to the rule is the Icon Airmada Helmet, which takes the Icon Optics Faceshield . Features Fog Free Face Shield for ICON Helmets The ICON Proshield (IC-02) is fitted with a helmet shield lock to keep your shield securely closed Designed to work with Domain 2, Alliance, and Airframe Helmets Will NOT fit Alliance SSR, Mainframe, or Domain (1) helmets, ( Icon Classic Shields available for these models) Will NOT fit the Variant (see Icon Variant Face Shield )

As everyone have mentioned, the coating on any of the RST colored shield will not last. I think a bug hit my shield and after I got home to wipe away the guts, it took some of the coating with it. I only used a microfiber cloth with water to clean it. Knocking just 1 star off durability for this. It'll still protect you from debris and other things that might come flying towards your face.
Other than that, the shield looks awesome paired with my Airframe Lifeform helmet. I love the fact that no one can see my face, this makes staring at hot girls a lot more discreet. I didn't have any issue with vision riding at night.
Also another con is you do see reflection on sunny days.

Bought this set to replace the one that was lost. I prefer the wired mic over the boom mic as it is a neater install on a full face helmet. Sound quality is great.

I initially bought the SMH-10 dual kit, included the boom mic. For a full face helmet the boom mic is kind of annoying, it sticks out too much. The wired mic makes it much better, I can hide the wires cleanly under the cheek pads. As always the sound quality is spot on clear.
The wire for the mic is a little thin, it may not hold up to an accidental snag. Need to make sure the wires are neatly tucked away.

Cover is light weight and thin, has a built-in pocket to fold itself back into for carry with on road trips. The medium size fits my bike perfectly, except sometimes the wind will blow the back of the cover up. This causes some annoyance because when it's raining my rear sprocket would be exposed and defeats the purpose. I do like the front strap that can hold the cover down on windy days.

Bought this helmet when it was on sale, saved a good chunk of change.
Great quality for the sale price, the graphics look awesome in person, super stable in high speed, wonderful air flow, ear pockets for communication speakers, wide FOV.
Loud in high speed, shield started to fog after a couple of days of use, dust seem to collect on the top seal resulting in scuffing up the upper part of the shield with daily use, strap neck padding seems a bit short.

I've been riding in this jacket since I received it on 3/19. The east coast has been having some weird weather patterns. It is not as warm as it's supposed to be this time of the year. Even now it still doesn't feel like spring and this jacket flows quite a good amount of air even with the liner, so I always wear a fleece underneath to battle the cold. That made it bearable riding in the upper 30s and 50s. I need to see how well it performs on hot summer days.
This jacket is very snug, I measured a little over 37" in chest with full lungs of air and ordered the size 48. After a while it stretches out a bit and made the fit more comfortable. The cut is excellent and the style is just awesome.
The liner is very thin and the liner sleeve always catches my watch when I try to take off the jacket. There is no inside pocket on the liner but there is a inside pocket on the jacket and that is inaccessible when the liner is in unless you unzip that portion. The outside pocket is very long, the zipper runs almost up to the armpit and it's big enough for cell phone, GPS, wallet.
Protection is adequate; shoulders, elbows and forearms. Material seems strong to absorb abrasion.
Overall this has become my favorite jacket. Dainese delivers a solid product once again!

I purchased this to use with my friend when we decided to ride down to D.C. for a mutual friend's wedding. I had some time with it before the road trip. It was easy to pair it to my phone and I was able to listen to music while commuting to work. Although I did miss a few phone calls while riding because I couldn't hear the incoming call notification. The sound quality is pretty good.
The intercom is very good, I was able to hear my conversations with my friend while riding between 70-80 mph. As long as you place the microphone high up in behind the chin bar near the breath guard, there won't be any wind noise issue.
I think it's a must have if you ride with someone. Unfortunately, my friend got into a bad crash and destroyed the headset. Luckily I heard him and was able to pull over and help him. I'll definitely pick up another one to replace it.

This is my first pair of riding shoes besides my boots. The fit is just right, I wear a 10.5 in regular shoes and ordered these in 10.5. It offers fair amount of protection for commute riding. The sole is a lot thinner than I thought, you can feel a lot through the it but offers good traction. I wear it at work all day and it doesn't bother me at all.
