This jacket fits great and when I got it it was still in the 30's outside but I wanted to take my bike for a ride. I never got cold over the 20 mile ride. It sure stops the wind and the armor protection, I hope to never use, covers all the impact points and is very adjustable. Driving downtown and seeing my reflection it the buildings windows (Wow), talk about visible, that's why I got it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

When I first put these on they were a-little tight. I have been riding with them for several weeks and they fit snug but are very comfortable. They have great airflow.
Next time I order I will order one size larger than the sizing chart suggests.
Yes, I recommend this product.

When I received this replacement lens I thought it was the same shade but after pulling the one that came with the helmet the new one was a shade darker. I now can ride in full sun without sunglasses. It takes more force to remove the inner shield than you think but the shield are vary durable.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Very versatile helmet for it's price. It has a great look and the fit is very snug. There is no room for sunglass so the internal shield is a must. The wind noise is loud at high speeds but I've had other helmets that I would ware earplugs with on long hauls.
Yes, I recommend this product.
