If you are on the larger end of a size rating... go bigger. Otherwise this is an OK helmet for the bucks. The neck collar didn't cut the noise level like I was expecting and the interior crown padding was loose and had to be "arranged." However, the neck collar does effectively keep the helmet from riding up at reasonable speeds. A big improvement over my last helmet, which was a kite. I like the long chin strap which doubles back and snaps above the D-rings. Mine came with a smoke translucent shorty visor... which I am still getting used to. I'm used to opaque. It snuggles up warmly with a Schampa face gaiter for those cooler mornings. All in all... a pretty good helmet for the money. I feel more a bit more "buttoned down" for fall riding. P.S. 10.12.08 Just wanted to drop back in and tell you that for the money this a great helmet. Just took my first overnight ride out to the Texas hill country with this one and have to give it the "thumbs up!" If you're like me and like an open face helmet... you can't go wrong with this one!
