So I've taken this thing for all of one ride so far, so I can't comment on it's reliability. I am fairly disappointed, considering how much this cost.
One, I have a Men's Small helmet and maybe my problems wouldn't exist if you had the large, but the size is for XS through Large so I feel entitled to complain the fit sucks. The replacement collar is visibly an inch longer on both sides. It was extremely difficult to put into the helmet, and it seems to be putting stress on the helmet where the pins slide in for the collar.
The boom is too large, there is absolutely no way for it to fit in the helmet without being pressed against my mouth or cheek. I happen to have a recording studio, so I'm sure I can find some smaller baffle to replace the included one.
I've had multiple issues with it maintaining a connection to my phone, but a2dp works so I won't be using bluetooth pairing in the future.
On the good side - It paired up easily with my wife's Scala Q3. Noise cancellation works fairly well. The dynamic volume is also a nice feature, but is distracting until I get used to it. I also like not having anything on the outside of my helmet - so that's why I gave it higher marks for style.
It seems like more hassle to return it and buy a q3, and I really really like not having something hanging off my helmet so I'll keep it, but I cannot recommend this. $400 for less features than the q3, and it doesn't even feel like a custom fit.

I've had the helmet for a season now, after I just couldn't stand my old one anymore.
I have a small, hard to fit head, Shoie's have always felt terrible, but this helmet fits like a dream.
I can take it on and off with my glasses on, the controls for the visor are convenient, although the internal sun visor mounting is a little flimsy and I have to double check after detaching for cleaning.
By far the most comfortable and quietest helmet I've ever owned. It is made for a more upright position than I normally sit in, and there is more noise when I'm leaned over the tank, but still better than any other helmet I've owned.
Anti-fog works well, but replacement visors and fog screen are expensive.
If you can afford it go for it, but I have hard time saying it's a great value, but you do get what you pay for with this.

I've had them about a week. They came in 2 days before I was take a weekend trip on my duc.
So I had about 2 hours of riding time, and wearing them around the house for 1 day, before taking them for 16+ hours of riding over 3 days. Didn't get a blister, or even much in the way of hot spots. I was very impressed with the fit and comfort.
These are the first dedicated motorcycle boots I've ever bought since I had never found any that weren't horribly uncomfortable. The inner lining and the way it laces are absolutely key. They make the same boot with traditional laces for a hundred bucks less - but those hundred bucks were very very worth it on my last trip.
While they are supposed to be over boots, they tuck under all pairs of jeans I have, and I'm pretty skinny - so if you want good protection for your feet, but still riding casual (or with kevlar jeans) they should fit under your pants.They're not as storm trooperish as some boots, but the stainless toe sliders kind of scream I'm wearing motorcycle boots.

So, first off, I am short and slim, so have a hard time finding jackets, or any gear for that matter.
The jacket fits a little snug, which is perfect for me, and I am very happy with where the armor hits on my shoulders and elbows, really quite comfortable. Since I almost always ride with a backpack, I didn't get a back protector, but I may upgrade in the future.
The mesh is great once you get above 15mph even on 90 degree baking days. But this is a pure summer jacket - very good airflow across the chest and back, even with my backpack on. I've found myself wearing a long sleeve shirt for early morning rides, and peeling it off once the day warms up.
Two minor complaints - the arms could have better venting, particularly with the armor, my arms get warmer than my old jacket. Also an inside pocket, or someplace I could store my phone (I use it as GPS) and run my headphones into my helmet would be nice But it does work well by running the cables under the neck snap .
Overall good jacket, a bit pricey for the features, but that's Dainese in general. Looks and feels great.
Yes, I recommend this product.
