i left "durability" blank because i simply haven't had it long enough to be able to determine this. the quality of the cover i must say is quite pleasant; i can tell it is far better than the cheaper covers i've seen/felt. the only complaint i may have is that it's not always easy to figure out which is the front, especially when you first start using it. i also dislike that certain sizes are only available in black, thereby reducing its visibility at night. another positive: the few times i did have my moto out in the rain with the cover, the moto was dry the next day when i uncovered it for use. i also like that the size/shape fits my moto rather well! price is kind of expensive (i have the sport bike size) but, oh well..
Yes, I recommend this product.

 Shoei RF-1100 Glacier Helmet
Shoei RF-1100 Glacier Helmet
Shoei RF-1100 Glacier Helmet The RF-1100 Glacier Helmet is tasteful high-visibility graphical option from Shoei built upon the best-selling and much accoladed RF-1100 chassis. AIM+ Shell Construction Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel and professional riders feedback High performance fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers to create shell structure that is ultra lightweight, rigid and resilient 5 Shell Sizes and six EPS liner configurations present increased fit options that comfortably fit most head sizes A third generation Tail Fin, integrated into the bottom rear beading in combination with the Shell-Integrated Spoiler, allows smooth airflow that reduces drag and lift CW-1 Face Shield The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces Q.R.S.A. (Quick Release Self-Adjusting) Base Plate System Q.R.S.A. base plate allows for tool-less face shield removal and installation. Every time the shield is lowered, the spring-loaded base plate (U.S. patent pending 11/799935) pulls the shield back to contact the window beading evenly, ensuring a wind and waterproof seal between shield and helmet Variable Ventilation System Upper Air Intake Vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior Top outlet vent is separate from the Shell- Integrated Spoiler, allowing it to be positioned for optimum flow-through ventilation Four rear outlet vents allow for adjustment of airflow based on riding position Enlarged lower air intake/defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation The rear/neck outlets allow for effective air exhaust Breath guard and chin curtain included Interior System The entire interior lining (cheek pads, crown liner and chin strap covers) is easily removed to allow cleaning Each component of the inner liner is ergonomically designed to offer the ultimate in safety, fit and comfort Eyeglass compatible Tech Specs High Visibility racing stripe patterned RF-1100 Glacier graphic 5 shell sizes Weight 3.54 Pounds / 1604grams (based on size medium / solid color) DOT and Snell M2010 approved Need help with sizing Check out our sizing video or read our Shoei Size Chart for more help. And don't forget our Gear Geeks are always available to help you out if you need advice. Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

i've had this helmet since late last year so i've had the chance to wear this in both cold and hot temperatures. it's great in the colder months. minimal fogging up. however, for the summer, i had to buy a no-chin helmet. any full-face helmet would be unbearable in 90 degree weather!
what first drew me was the look. with the matte black and hi-viz yellow, i feel more confident being on the road with visibility.
i wear a medium (prior helmet was a scorpion in large) and it fits my head very nicely, all around. very comfortable. i know there's more expensive helmets out there but i can't imagine it being more comfortable than this. i like that it's snell and DOT approved.

price is decent. you don't want to pay too little and get what you pay for. if you don't have a ton of money to spend, this is what you want.
generally speaking, i really dislike how much of the products out there for women have pink, flowers, hearts, swirls, etc. it's cheesy. i like that this design is pretty much the same as men's. makes me feel like a tough chick that i like to pretend to be.
when i first started riding, i dropped my moto on my foot while wearing these. i got a scratch on the boot, but the foot itself was well protected. job well done.
the only con for me personally is that when i shift with these on, i can't tell as well as with my sneakers when i have successfully changed gears (shifting up). for that reason, i don't score it a 5 on comfort.
