i usually wear a sz L in most brands and after reading the reviews on this decided to size down. Medium is snug but comfortable. The padding seems thinner than my HJC full face but the material is comfortable. The underside of the helmet has a mesh fabric (I assume for breathability) but it feels rough and scratches my cheekbones as I pull on the helmet.
The chin strap has way too much extra length and no retaining loop so it flaps around unless you cut it off like i did.
Big visor provides very good peripherals and the optics are very good, no warping or distortion that I can notice. Haven't ridden w/ the peak, but without it the helmet seems very stable/minimal buffeting.
A chin curtain might be a nice option as a lot of air blows up from under the chin bar but that can be nice on a warm/hot day. i'm sure it'd be great when using goggles.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Beautiful in black. Wish it came w/ the fog-free visor, since it's the same price to buy separately...The detent for fully closed is REALLY secure, practically have to pry the visor open, which I like. It all feels top quality.
Pros Great Value, Fashionable, Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.

got the gold mirror'd. Very reflective...but on BOTH sides, so at certain light angles you get a lot of internal reflection of your face.
Pros Fashionable
Yes, I recommend this product.
