For the $300-$350 I find it very nice, we all know the more you pay the more you get, I find this helmet in mid range price and features wise, it is comfortable and quite for long rides, the fog setting is useful in cold weather but, not a 100% clearing it.

Very nice boots overall, I love the design, i would just mention that they are on the narrower side. I didn't have a chance to ride in the rain yet but I count on Dainese's brand to deliver. The boots are comfortable to were on and off the the motorcycle, and I find it a big plus.
