This jacket has been used now on a handful of trips and I'm very pleased with it...I'm 5'-11" 180 lbs athletic build and the "large" fits perfect...currently I've taken the liner out to get as much airflow as possible in this Texas heat...the airflow is good though I think it could be a little better...
Construction of the jacket is top notch with some nice features such as two inner pockets and the exterior titanium shoulder caps #which I love#...I've added the Klim Viper back protection #linked below# and after trimming was able to put it and the original foam pad back into the inner pouch...
Pros: "Fitted" look...shoulder caps...
Cons: Could move just a little more air...
Would I purchase again?...Yes...

The main reason why I chose this helmet was the style and color...I wanted a modular (for flip up at fuel stations and stop-n-go traffic during the summer heat)...also I wanted white for visibility in traffic that had some nice looking graphics (but nothing extreme like skulls or crazy swirls) and this version of the EXO-900 fit the bill...
I wear a size "large" and the fit is perfect...though I have to flip the helmet open when taking on/off due to the wind guard under the chin (not a big deal)...wind noise is very low and the venting gets the job done...for those of you who have a more pointed crown head may not find this helmet comfortable...(as with my brother...he tried it on and started to get a headache within 5 minutes)...but for me the helmet is great and the flip down internal sun visor is a plus...
My main complaint is the optional sun visor for 3/4 wear...I wish this was a separate item to order so that the helmet may have been sold at a little lower price point...as I do not plan on using this helmet in 3/4 mode...
Pros: Style/graphics...internal visor...
Cons: Price...chin strap could use more padding...
Would I purchase again?...Yes...
