I've had these for about 6 months now and have worn them in all conditions. They are a hot boot, I may need to find something better ventilated for the southern summers but that wasn't unexpected considering they are waterproof. My feet stayed dry after riding through many hours of heavy rain. After getting some gel inserts I found them to be very comfortable and have worn them all day at work on many occasions. I'm not happy with the laces, they are wearing out quickly. The velcro lace cover is tearing them up while also being finicky to use. But keeping in mind the price point I would buy them again.
Yes, I recommend this product.

My hands stayed dry and warm during several days of rain riding. Be careful pulling them off as the liner tends to come out of the fingers making it a little difficult to reinsert your fingers. Might be a little too warm for summer rain riding here in the South but we'll see.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These fit under my jeans without looking too bulky. Wore them for a week long trip on and around the Blue Ridge Parkway and forgot I even had them on. I only used the bottom velcro strap to keep them from sliding down, the top strap was unnecessary.

Nolan N104 Helmet - Solid Colors Nolan N104 Helmets represent an evolutionary step for Nolan as they replace the much touted N103 Helmet. When compared the older N103, the Nolan N104 Helmet offers a helmet which is much lighter (7oz), features a lower profile through the use of multiple shell sizes, better aerodynamics, as well as a much larger viewport for increased visibility. The (patented) chin guard rotation movement with elliptical trajectory makes it possible to keep the total size of the helmet's front section to a minimum when the chin guard is open. The sail effect is consequently highly reduced, and riding comfort is still guaranteed, even when the chin guard is lifted. The new ultrawide eyeport is the largest of any Nolan helmet, both vertically and laterally, for maximum field of view. The AIRBOOSTER ventilation system is equipped with an air intake in the chin bar, another intake in the brow, and two rear extractors at the rear. The inner comfort lining includes removable cheekpads, inner liner, neckroll and chin curtain and is easily removable and washable as well as antifungal and antibacterial. New, redesigned comfort liner also accommodates eyeglasses much more easily than before. All Nolan N104 helmets are also N-COM B4 ready ( N-COM B4 is designed expressly for the N104 and is sold separately). Shell Features Injected polycarbonate GE Lexan shell 7oz lighter than the Nolan N103 Two Shell engineering allows Nolan N104 to offer sizes from 2XS to 3XL (2XS-LG and XL-3XL) Dimensionally correct sizing allows ample cubic volume in chin/nose area Faceshield Features Face shields are now sized to fit the two different shell sizes (2XS-LG and XL-3XL) Ultra wide eye port opening is the largest on any Nolan helmet for superior visibility Shield is changed by a simple push button mechanism Pinlock shield included with each helmet VPS (Vision Protection System) is new slider bar to lower, push button release for instant retraction VPS lens is scratch and fog resistant Chin Bar Features Centromatic chin guard opening mechanism requires dual action, simultaneous action to prevent accidental opening Dual action opening mechanism is positioned in the centre of the chin guard and allows for easy, one-handed opening Ventilation N104 has new AIRBOOSTER ventilation system, ensures optimal ventilation where is is most required Air intake in the chin guard draws air in and onto the inside of the faceshield 3 position top vent (closed, crown vent, crown/brow vent) 2 venturi exhaust ports at rear of helmet New plastic vent tube channels in EPS disperse cool air throughout the helmet interior Inner Liner Features removable cheek pads, inner liner, neck roll and wind protector The inner padding of the new N104 is easily removable and washable and antibacterial The shape of the inner comfort padding facilitates eyeglass wearing Reflective insert at the centre of the roll neck further improves the rider's visibility at night Neck roll can be removed easily, for more comfort in the warmer months Other Features N-Com Communication System compatible (sold separately) Features new Microlock2 quick-release retention system Microlock2 consists of a plastic ergonomic opening lever, and of a second aluminium toothed and holding lever Microlock2 minimizes the possibility of unintentional opening while still making it ergonomic and easy to use Meets or exceeds D.O.T. standards

I really like this helmet. I've got nearly six months of daily summer riding with the Nolan protecting my noggin and highly recommend it. I really like the way it looks despite its massive size. Ventilation is adequate, even in 100 degree days as long as you're moving.
I especially like the wide viewport and sunshield. Although my measurements (23") dictate a LG I ordered the XL and found it fits well. I don't think I could have squeezed my head into something smaller and kept my sanity. The cheekpads gave me a headache after 3+ hrs of riding but eventually broke in. I've always had a D-ring so this ratchet gadget gave me fits initially, and it does seem to dig into my neck a bit, but it works well. One odd thing, this helmet creaks. Everything feels solid, the mechanisms work well and open/close with authority but even six months later it creaks like an old hardwood floor and has done so right out of the box. Not a big deal though, I would buy it again.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've been riding the past two months with this in sometimes brutal temps (100+) and found the airflow to be outstanding. I researched long and hard before pulling the trigger with Revzilla on this and I was not disappointed with the product or the service....both excellent. Haven't had a chance to try the liners yet. Although I have ridden in the rain it was unplanned so the liner stayed in the tailbag. i would definitely recommend purchasing this jacket.

I got this mainly for the High Vis color since I often commute predawn and after dark. Definitely stands out at night. I really don't plan on using the helmet carrying feature and find it can carry everything I need to for work and my workout clothes despite the space allotted to that unused feature. The smallest compartment has semi-rigid shell that offers more protection than my old backpack which is an unexpected bonus. I was always crushing stuff slinging my old pack around but no worries with this one.
