This helmet compares favorably with my Schuberth C3. The Lazer is very light and just a bit noisier than the Schuberth. The Monaco is very aerodynamic. I had to shorten the chin strap and there is nowhere to put the extra length of strap, but that's not much of a negative. The opening is narrow, so I must remove my glasses to put the helmet on. Once on it's very comfortable -- even my glasses fit without issue. Air flow is pretty good, but not as good as the Schuberth. The chin bar is far easier to close than the Schuberth. The paint is beautiful (I have the Roadster graphics), and the photochromic shield (with pinlock) is a great idea -- no internal visor to move up and down and clean. I've ordered the Lazer Blue bluetooth unit as the Monaco comes pre-wired (bluetooth to ship mid-April). I'm excited to see how the bluetooth works as I'm planning on taking the Monaco on a ~3000 mile trip this summer.

This is my fourth Dainese jacket. The other three are size 52, but the Racing jacket seems to be cut a bit smaller so I had to return for a 54.
No complaints though, like every other Dainese jacket I've owned the leather is great, provisions for back protection and Italian styling -- overall a great jacket.

I admit that I was skeptical, but this photochromic face shield works as advertised. For years I've been sold on helmets with retractable sun shields, but photochromic shields are the future: no need to slide a retractable shield up and down, and they're one extra item to clean on your helmet. If you have a Bell helmet, you'll definitely want this shield.
