I needed to replace a very old, white, open-faced helmet and very few manufacturers still make open-faced helmets for the rider who is claustrophobic in a full-faced model. Plus, I smoke while I ride my GoldWing, and one cannot do that with a full-faced helmet, no way, no how.
The helmet (size XL) is just a little bit on the large size, as there is a gap in helmet sizes and my head circumference, as instructed to measure -- is in the gap. Ya' might know. Well, better a little too large than a little too small...
Although there are vents for air flow, I always wear a Slik before putting on my helmet, which keeps the sweat off the helmet lining; it's warmer in winter and cooler in summer. But it also prevents any of the airflow from the vents from getting to my scalp.
All in all, I'm quite satisfied with this helmet.
Yes, I recommend this product.
