I normally fit XL but from some other reviewers' comments on fit, I ordered an XXL. Based on the fit, I believe XL would be more snug but still fit (I have a round head.) The helmet is quieter than I thought it'd be, even on the highway (using earplugs of course.) Only thing I don't quite like are the optics of the internal shade. I feel the shade goes down low enough. However, I can see distortions if I scan w/ my eyes (left<->right).

The Derk design is nicely understated. Matte finish looks like it might be prone to scuffing but I haven't had any issues yet. Was concerned about weight, not being to able to find weight spec online, but it's surprisingly light. That is, it doesn't feel heavier than a typical full faced, non-modular helmet. A bit of wind buffetting if the head is turned to the side while travelling at speed, but not too bad. Wind noise is noticeable (prob. due to space by ears for speakers) but with earplugs in, it's not distracting or loud. Comes with a chin guard. Not too much space below my chin (have to make sure helmet is adjusted so chin portion of the helmet is positioned right.) Fit's my XL round head fine. Side liner is not removable so I had to pry the side from the shell to install bluetooth headset (and hotglue back together.) Not a big deal. Comes with a dark shield!
Yes, I recommend this product.
