This is only my 3rd helmet so I don't have a lot to compare to, but it is much quieter than my hjc's. It fits me well but from what I've read you might want to try it on first. The sun visor works well and ventilation is very good.

My motorcycle has to live outside so I needed a quality cover. This works very well, weather proof (not 100% waterproof) and sturdy. Can't really ask for more than that, it just works.

For the price especially these are great. I've only ridden them a few times so I can't comment on tread life and I haven't had these in the rain yet but others who have these have said they do well. I'm coming from an Avon road rider which was a good tire but developed severe sidewall cracks after less than a year, so hopefully these last longer than that.

I've only just got these so I can't say how durable they are in the long run, but my initial impression is this is great! Instantly comfortable, like they are custom built just for me, and the protection seems to be pretty good. The palm especially seems very well protected. If you are considering any Rev'It gloves, listen to revzilla and get a size larger than normal, trust the reviews that these are built small. I initially ordered a size L monster and they barely fit my hands even though using Rev'Its size chart I technically measure in between M and L (8 3/4). I bought the XL dirt and it fits perfectly. I trust these to hold up well as every Rev'It product review I've seen has been positive.
Yes, I recommend this product.
