Obviously if you fall at speed in a 3/4 or 1/2 helmet you will grind your face off so buy this one for scooting around town on a, er, scooter or your favorite city bike. More convenient than a full face for little low speed trips. I'm a long oval head shape and it fits me relatively well. It's always hard to find true long oval shapes and this is as good as it gets I would say. My full face helmet is an Arai Signet Q and it fits similarly if that helps.

Kriega US-20 Drypack The Kriega US-20 is an award-winning, high quality piece of motorcycle luggage, offering 20 liters of capacity. Like all Kriega US bags, it is a 100 waterproof Drypack with innovative design which attaches to the sub-frame, via included buckle loops and Alloy Hook Straps, for use as a motorcycle tail pack and courier bag. The Kriega US-20 motorcycle bag comes equipped with removable shoulder and waist straps. It can be carried courier style, on or off the bike. It can also be used as a tank bag (with addition of US Tank adaptor) or in combination with other US packs to create a supremely adaptable, modular, soft luggage system. Anti-slip mesh base also doubles as a pocket to store the shoulder waist straps, or other items, when the US-20 is attached to the motorcycle. The shoulder strap connects to the large D-rings at each end of the pack and the waist strap connects to 2 x tuck-away buckles at the corners of the mesh-pocket. The Kriega US-20 dry pack motorcycle tailpack is designed to work perfectly with pretty much any motorcycle, via a super secure attachment to the sub-frame. The pack is easily attached/removed by 4 x quick-release buckles, and no extra bungees or rain covers are required. The Kriega dry bag US-20 tail pack utilizes the latest generation of fitting straps. US Alloy Hook Straps allow tailpack combinations of up to 90-liters to be carried with confidence and convenience. Easy on/off with no loose straps remaining. Custom CNC milled, aircraft grade, 6061-T6 alloy hooks attach to the four discreet web loops located on the frame of the bike. Fitting method is particularly suitable for traditional one-piece motorcycle seats and bolt-on seat pads/racks, as well as standard seats. US packs can be mounted inline or across the seat. For use as a tankbag, Kriega US Tank Adaptor must be purchased. Kriega US-20 dry pack features 100 waterproof main-body RHINOTEK abrasion resistant fabric HYPALON abrasion resistant reinforcement DRYPACK removable taped-seam inner liner 420D nylon ripstop - lightweight yet extremely strong CNC milled, 6061-T6 alloy fitting hooks Acetal ITW Airloc quick-release buckles YKK water-resistant zip on side pocket Side access zip pocket (water-resistant) Coated-mesh pocket Shoulder waist straps US Alloy Hook Straps included 10-year guarantee 20-liter capacity (H)15.7 x (W)10.2 x (D)7.5 inches

Fits a 15" laptop with no problem at all which I didn't see before in the reviews so there you go. I have a 2012 Ducati Monster 1100 evo and it was a little tricky to attach the straps to the subframe without the seat being contorted or not closing. But I figure it out and it looks pretty good. Highly recommended.

I thought these would be a little thicker than they are. I have a pair of short ICON gloves that are thicker (I think they're called Stealth?). They're just as warm as these but don't come up on the wrist like this. I guess I would say these are a good cheap pair of gloves but nothing special.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is the one that fits the shield that comes with the new Signet Q. I have to say whatever they're doing here with this shield-over-shield technology works great. You can breath right into this thing and it won't fog up. Won't be long before all shields find a way to do this.
Yes, I recommend this product.

If you're waiting for the backorders of the pinlock for the signet q and are being blinded by the sun because you don't like to wear sunglasses under your helmet... well, buy yourself one of these in dark smoke. Fits great and a good temporizing measure until the cool pinlock ones come in. Very little fogging although not as good as the pinlock is.

Arai Signet-Q Helmet - Solid Colors The Signet-Q takes all the favorite features of the RX-Q and create a whole new series based on all the successes. On the outside, the Arai Signet-Q Helmet looks very similar to it's namesake, the RX-Q, but on the inside you can see and feel the difference. A longer shell shape on the Arai Signet-Q Helmet gives 5mm more space front to back allowing for a larger number of heads to fit comfortably. The shape of the Arai Signet-Q Helmet releases forehead pressures and eliminate hot spots for a more comfortable fit every time. This shape works best for riders with a long oval headshape. Additional Features of the Arai Signet-Q Helmet Both the top vent set and side exhaust cowls are direct carryovers from the RX-Q Brow vent ducting redirects to flow air across the temples DDL-4 exhaust vent to the 10mm wider eye port (5mm on each side) Long Oval Fit SAI MAX-Vision Brow Vent shield Clear Pinlock Max-Vision Brow Vent Pinlock lens included Elongated shell adds 5mm from front to back Long-Oval shape helps prevent Hot-Spot Multi-Density Single piece EPS liner Removable, replaceable, washable interior Dry-Cool Surface material for rapid displacement of heat and moisture away from your head and into the ventilation airflow for added comfort while riding and a quick dry between rides 5mm peel-away temple pads adds another level of customization, giving the helmet interior a little extra width when needed Enhanced for customizable micro fitment interior without the need to purchase extra interior components New FCS (Facial Contour Support) cheek pad design Innovative and exclusive spring support adds just the right amount of pressure when needed while being worn Meets or exceeds Snell and D.O.T. standards

Great helmet. I had a Shoei X-11 that seemed comfy until about 20 minutes into the ride when I'd get a hot spot on my upper forehead. This seems to eliminate that spot.
You'll see different things written but this is for a long narrow head shape. Kind of to an extreme level. It's also meant more for upright to slightly tucked riding... it's not a race helmet like the Shoei meant to be in full tuck the whole time.
I've yet to take it on a long trip at which time I'll update here.
Yes, I recommend this product.
