I am very pleased with the finish and features. This gave me the relatively light weight I wanted in a flip-front helmet. The photochromatic shield works very well, including turning back to clear quickly.
I found I needed a larger size than the head-measurement technique would indicate, both for width and for my head to seat fully to the top, but this could just be because each head is differently shaped (or, maybe, just mine is different).
This is not the quietest helmet, but the weight tradeoff works for me; noticably less neck fatique than my old helmet. The tight fit over the ears does ameliorate wind noise, but it is noticable if you turn your head and create enough of a gap for the noise to chanel into the ear area. Plus, that was mostly a test, and I almost always ride with foam ear plugs, which will render the noise issue moot.
I feel this helmet was an excellent value, would buy it again, and still cannot justify spending the extra $150 for the slightly lighter carbon fiber even though I love that look.

Yes, I recommend this product.
