I've been using a SHOEI RF1100 and wanted a flip up. I first bought the NEOTEC but it didn't fit right and for the money I didn't think that it was worth it, so I returned it and got the Symax 3. First thing I did was pull out the liner to see if the speakers for my Harleys communicatin system would fit - they don't. Also need to be careful when pulling out the cheek pads. There is a thin area of styrofoam that is covered in the same material as the cheek pads. When I grabbed the cheek pad I unknowingly grabbed the styrofoam also and broke it. The shape of the helmet is too round. It fits too tight on my forehead, but the next size up is too big. I had similar issue with the shape on the SHOEI as well, but it is not as pronounced on the Shoei. On the plus side, the flip up feature works well, it has a wide field of view and stays relatively fog free, although I attribute that to the fact that it doesn't really seal up that well, which is probably the reason for the high level of wind noise. If I were to buy another flip up, I think I might try the Nolan.

The sleeves are tight with both the rain and thermal liners in place. I bought this solely as a summer jacket, so I'll never use the thermal liner. With both liners removed the sleeves are very long and very big at the wrist, but you don't even notice it while riding. In spite of the sleeves being big the pads line up perfectly. The velcro closures at the wrist are just enough to take up the slack. Other than that it is a very comfortable jacket.
Yes, I recommend this product.
