fogs too easily and doesn't defog quickly, and the pinlock thingy hinders vision
turns out i don;t like the latch dead center, i ride w/ my lens cracked and that big buckle got in my line of sight
strap tabby things are to skinny, hard to unbuckle
1 vent is already broken
not as "plush" as i'd like

but it is VERY light and great paint scheme

your results may vary.

Now that you mentioned it, I too noticed everything you have described.

Fogs easily - even with that fog-resist shield

The latch dead center had to take some getting used to, doesn't bother me as much as it does you. (I ride with mine shut, and crack it at every other light)

I hate the straps too - not so easy removing the lid after a ride as it is putting it on.

Lol, just a tad bit.

When I first tried that lid on, I kinda felt like the left cheek pocket/padding area was a little bit bigger than the right side.

Interesting... I tried one on this weekend and thought "I need to look for one of these next".

I never put the visor down b/c it had the sheild protector/dealer thing on it.... never thought about the latch.

Felt plush enough for me.
I never buckled it, cause was just test fitting.

Thanks for the "issues" to look out for.


Also, your "next helmet" is pretty sweet too.

I never put the pinlock fog thingy on mine because I figured it'd throw off my view, guess I was right?

i mean the HJC is a nice lid esp. for those that haven't tried/bought/used others. but i guess i'm an ARAI snob.
