Got this for a long trip, I am 5'7 1/2". It does a great job of protecting against the wind, but creates A LOT of wind noise in my helmet. If I either duck under the screen (which is not terribly hard, but not comfortable for more than 15-20 minutes) it is a complete quiet comfy bubble. Or If I stand-up, same. However, at my height, it is not all there. I had a double bubble before that, which had similar problems, so will probably get rid of moth and just go semi-naked style. Quality, looks and easy of instal were great. Price not bad. And if I was either 3 inches higher or 2 inches shorter, this would be perfect.

This was my second helmet (first was a scorpion 400). Well built, very comfortable, great airflow and vision, and the sun visor helps (could be a tad bigger, but works).
The helmet wears a bit large - I wear a L on the scorpion, Nexx X1r1 and n43, but the n43 feels a bit larger.
Unfortunatelly I traded my bike for a vfr and with the fairing the nolan gets too loud (even with plugs which I always wear), so I ended up getting the nexx. Overall I think the nolan is better, specially on summer.

Very light, good looking helmet. Snug fit, with comfy lining keeps the helmet a bit quieter than my previous, but also a bit hotter. Vents are great on the top, but chin ventilation is null. Built seems ok, but I can see how the plastic vents could come apart.
It does fog a lot. I'm riding in hot SOCAL wheater and this will fog up like noone's business, didn't even know it was possible to fog this much. So that's the biggest minues, along with being a bit hot.
The light weight is great though, I can wear it for hours, barely feel it there (had a nolad n43 before which was also light but not this light). A bit of my previous helmet and bike follows for context. Overall good, but wish it was a tad quieter and a bit better venting.
Bit of background I'm pretty new at riding, currently own a 09 vfr. Previous helmets were the scorpion exo400, then nolan n43 - which is great and light and has great airflow, but is too loud with the vfr fairing throwing all the air right at my head. The n43 worked fine with my previous bike - a naked aprilia mana. If it wasn't for the noise I would like the n43 better than the nexx.
Side note: Really wished there was a way to test ride helmets for 20 minutes or so. They are really expensive is a tough to find the right fit for the right head and the bike.
Yes, I recommend this product.
