Yeah, don't know what to tell you. I have a CL-16 I wear in the rain and have never had a problem with it. I do love the pin-lock shield when it's wet/cold/foggy though, never had a better shield when it comes to NOT fogging up.

It's all good ... I have the pin lock that came with the clear shield .. Never put it on because I rarely ride at night. My dark smoke does not have the pinlock.

It will serve as a good back up to my new rpha10 that should be here this week.

Def been in the rain a few times. My current helmet it a HJC-RPS10 Patriot and once i closed the top vents had no leak issues at all. Now with that being said i was surprised how well certain bikes are built regarding air flow. Once i tucked behind the Double Bubble and squeezed my legs in on the tank and with the tips of my toes on the pegs my legs weren't even getting wet. The VFR's fairing just flowed the rain around me and yes speed did help.
