Shark Evoline 3 ST Moov Up Helmet Sharks masterpiece continues on its evolution. Never has a helmet given you such options between street/road riding, open or full face. Improvements to the Series 3 include Easier manipulation of the chinbar thanks to the Auto-Up system. The unique motion of the Evoline remains unchanged and has become even more natural with the Series3. The Auto-Up system has been simplified - chinbar and main shield are now united in a single movement. Fabrics, finish and style. The interior of the Evoline Series 3 has been totally redesigned and is softer, better and more comfortable. Brand new ventilation design fore and aft. Overall lower weight has been decreased by approximately 200 grams. Features Lexan Polycarbonate shell Shark Easy Fit system for comfortable use with glasses Sharktooth ready Integrated drop down sun shield Removable and washable CoolMax liner ECE 2205 approved with chinbar in both open and closed position ECE 2205 and DOT approved

I'll just start with my one gripe. The description and other comments have said this helmet is compatible with glasses. I think it's mentioned in the video as well. Unless I have a really fat heat (I don't think so), this helmet is NOT compatible with glasses. I have 2 pairs and neither come close to fitting. I got this helmet with the intention of wearing my spectacles- that won't happen.
Otherwise, this is the nicest helmet I've owned. With respects to looks, the finish is top-notch. I got the white/black/red model and it's gorgeous. Glossy, glossy, glossy. I think the minimal line graphics look great and highlight the helmet well.
Functionally, it's a solid helmet. It's not too noisy (strangely, it appears to be the same level of noise with the face closed or open). Vision is great, one of the widest I've had in a full-face helmet. The cheek pads are a little tight, but they'll break in. The pads are silky smooth and VERY comfortable. The modular face works great and is easy to maneuver with one hand. Closing it takes a little bit of practice, but not a biggie. And, the internal shade works easily. I prefer the direct movement with the top slider over some of the button and spring loaded mechanisms found on other helmets (just seems like those would break over time). It doesn't come quite as low as I'd like, but it is very effective. The outer visor is really easy to swap out. Nothing to pop on or off with design flares or fairings. Just a little button to depress and the shield pops right out. Easy.
I only have a few minor dings for the helmet. First is the lack of glasses compatibility (like I mentioned above). The airflow isn't all that great even with the face open (if they added vents in the back I think it would be super). Also, with the helmet open and the faceguard in the "up position", the helmet becomes a little back heavy. Not a lot, but it's noticable. The helmet is also a little heavy and a little bobble-head-ish. However, that was a known tradeoff for the modular face and the internal shade.
Overall, I've had my eye on one of these Moov-its for the past few years. I really liked this version and finally dropped some dough to pick it up. If you get this, you will be happy. I know I am.

I wanted a not too dark chrome finished visor for my fancy new helmet. This ended up being a bit darker than I had expected. Closer to dark tint than light tint. That's fine, but the bad part is the warning on the visor: race use only. I don't believe I missed that detail on the website. I'll wear it anyway (trying my luck on the mean streets of the ATL), but if it matters to you, stick with the other choices.

I picked this up for my fiancee. She really likes it. It's tough to find a jacket that isn't black. The off white color of this jacket is nice. The mesh material moves a lot of air. Overall, the jacket shape fits her well.
One complaint is the arms are kinda big for her, so the forearm/elbow pads kinda wiggle around a lot. If there was some sort of strap to hold them in place, the overall and features numbers would have been higher.
If you need a coat that will work well in the heat, this is it. Not shabby for the price either.

Nolan N44 Storm Helmet The Nolan N44 is the latest evolution of the hugely popular N43E, and is updated in both function and design. The Nolan N44 is a fully modular helmet, ideally responding to the needs of expert motorcyclists and suitable for both summer and winter use. Designed for urban riding, the Nolan N44 is equally at home on a long journey or weekend getaway, and has a unique style that is at home on any bike. The N44 has six possible configurations which you can personalize through the addition or removal of the chin bar, faceshield and peak all of which are included. With the chin bar and faceshield installed, the rider can expect the same benefits of a full face helmet. With just the peak and chin bar installed, the helmet flows a great amount of air while still providing the same protection of a full face helmet. With the chin bar, faceshield and peak removed it becomes a true three quarter open face helmet. This gives the rider a great range of flexibility. Features Ultrawide Pinlock ready faceshield gives the rider a greater field of vision (included) Clear Pinlock faceshield and lens included 2 position inner sun shield (VPS) 2 Shell Sizes Protective Chin Guard Central Ventilation System Airbooster Airflow System Microlock2 (patent pending) double lever retention system Polycarbonate Outer Shell Inner Comfort Padding Visor Air Intake DOT Approved

The helmet looks great. The vision is spectacular with that big ole visor. And the modular set-up is clever. However, the chin strap is so uncomfortable, I lasted about 30 seconds with it on. Trust me folks, don't waste your time with this one.
One other note, the helmet creaks a lot. I've never had a helmet's material make so much noise while handling. To me, this speaks if poor construction - bad tolerances among material layers. I've read many comments about the great "fit and finish" of nolan helmets. Honestly, upon opening this helmet, I was unimpressed.

I was looking for a summer jacket. It gets a little hot in Atlanta, and figured I should actually wear a coat this year. I was looking for a not-gaudy, not-black jacket. Wow, are those 2 criteria tough to find.
Luckily this Spidi coat fit the bill. The design is clean. There are few flashy bits, just a small logo on the back. AND, the grey one is a pretty great color.
First impressions: this jacket is SMALL! I wear a 44 jacket (17, 32/33 fitted shirt, athletic build), and I was popping out of an XL. Had to go with the 2XL. (As an aside, Revzilla was fast with the return, but I was a little bummed I had to pay to ship the coat back). 2XL fits fine. The arms are not huge, so if you are a muscle head, not the brand for you. However, the shoulder and elbow pads seem to be in comfortable spots. Build quality seems solid. I like the bright red interior mesh lining. The jacket feels super light, we'll see how well it holds up.
It's still cold, so I haven't been out in it. I picked this coat up on sale, so woohoo for bang/buck ratio. I'll update the review once I get this outside in a few months.
Yes, I recommend this product.
