I've been riding around with this Nolan N90 for about a month now, and these are my observations and opinions of this helmet. It is my first modular helmet, and I've been riding motorcycles for all of 6 months now, so bear that in mind. First, we had an odd assortment of weather here in Texas which afforded me the opportunity to experience sun, rain, and sleet in this helmet. With that in mind, I stayed mostly dry but not very cool. I think a drop or two may have seeped in from the top vents even though they were closed. The sheild gasket seems to make a really good seal, yet opening and closing is no trouble. The pin-lock insert seems to work better for anti-fog than my other helmet with anti-fog coating(HTC IS-16). Now, about this Texas heat, I sweat on a normal day in this helmet, so there is no way I'll be wearing this when the hundred degree days hit. The chin vent does actually pull in air to the visor like it is supposed to, but the chimney vent is misaligned or something because I'm just not feeling it, not even a general circulation over the top of my head. And, trust me people, I'd feel it because I'm bald on top. I pulled the liner out and looked at the venting holes; they start out big and end up as a tiny hole to the outside. I thought about drilling it out, but then I reconsidered: it will make a good winter helmet, and I'll keep my other helmet for summer which has really good ventilation. For fitment, I have a mostly oval head, and this helmet fits well except for a slight pressure at the forehead. When I put it on, it feels like the helmet is making me frown because of the weight on the brow (even with the chin bar down). As far as the chinstrap goes, whether I sit the helmet more forward or more to the back, the chinstrap is more uncomfortable than a D-ring strap. And now I need to end this becuase I'm more than three drinkds in and uncuomfortable is getting hard to spell. Sorry, last sentec unspell check, cola and rum, my lips are numb. :)
I forgot to mention I cut out the earhose becuase is was hutring my ears. Alos so I could hear my pipes. Also, tunring my head is diffecult, chin seems to hit my shoulder more than should.
Yes, I recommend this product.
