Overall comfortable, slightly small for the size I think, but it may relax after more use. To be fair I haven't worn it too much yet, so the size may be perfect once broken in.
Fit and finish is good, and the advanced shell material is nice and light.
GREAT value in this helmet.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Lets start with the good: Its light, there is little distortion through the main visor and I really like the quick release. I didn't have any issues with it being uncomfortable as some have mentioned. The inner flip down smoked visor is handy, but the whole mechanism feels like it will break sooner or later. The materials feel pretty good. I especially like the suede type liner material.
The bad: Its extremely noisy for a full face helmet. I wear custom molded earplugs, and it is still very loud..... and mine whistled pretty loudly on top of the wind noise. The top vent rattled just like I expected it to from the other reviews and there is a little distortion from the inner drop down screen, but not too bad at all. Also, this thing doesn't breath very well at all and even with the front vent open (which doesn't seem to make a difference) the visor fogs very easily in the morning.
But for me there are two glaring issues that make it a "No Recommend".
1. It is NOT designed for an upright seating style like my GS, or any adventure bike for that matter.... which is probably the reason it doesn't flow air and whistles.
2. If you like the Shoei fit.... you probably wont like this one. I like the Shoei fit, but I cant stand this thing. It feels too tight on the forehead, too loose on the cheeks, and too tight on the ears.... in fact there seems to be no ear pockets at all.
I would have sent this back if I could, but it seems like I will be selling it locally and finding something else.
On another Note, Revzilla was very helpful... as always. I will be coming back for all my gear.
No, I do not recommend this product.
