Excellent optics and quality!
I purchased the amber shield for use with my FG-17 Ace Yellow. The Ace's yellow is actually more orange-yellow so the amber shield matches perfectly with the graphics.
The shield is very well molded with sturdy hinge and detents/latches. The surface has a very high quality gloss finish; it almost looks lightly mirrored. The pocket for the Pinlock insert was perfect and fit like a jigsaw puzzle piece.
The amber definitely reduces glare and enhances contrast in both bright and low light conditions. Vision at night is no problem whatsoever as the amber is not dark, but it still helps cut some glare from oncoming headlights.

pinlock works great, mirror finish quality is better than expected
The pinlock system works as described and does not fog. I have a silver mirror finish and it is clearer to see than you would think looking at the stock photo. However, since its dark in the helmet, people on the outside cannot see your face unless the sunlight is illuminating inside.
I had a old cheap mirrored lens on an old helmet and it would scratch and lose its finish, but this is still in the same condition as when I bought it. These lens are much thicker than the ones i had on the CL series HJC helmets.
Overall, I recommended it.

HJC pin lock face shield
The face shield smoke is great. Perfect tint and no distortion. Excellent face shield.

Great face shield!
I got the smoke visor to use in bright conditions, since my helmet only came with a clear one. The HJC face shields are very easy to swap out.

Muy buena visera, pero angosta
La calidad de la visera es muy buena, ya que viene preparada para agregarle el PINLOCK (también lo compre).
El sistema de acople y desacople al casco es muy efectivo.
El único detalle que le encuentro es que es muy angosta comparada con otras. Pero no es un tema de la visera, es un tema del diseño del casco (FG-17).
Tengo un casco NEXX y la visera es MUCHO mas amplia.
Compre la DARK SMOKE y es ideal para el verano, pero OJO con la noche, se ve muy poco.

Overall great product
I own the gold mirror finish. Been using since July 2013.
+Nobody can tell that I'm eyeing them up
+Blocks out the sun even if it is directly in your eyes
+Easy release and swappable with my stock clear shield
+Can still see pretty good once the sun starts to set, but I would keep your clear shield handy if you're a 9amto5pm commuter in the winter time.
+Tint has never chipped on me. I use water + microfiber to clean
+In the bright sun you can see your own eyes in the reflection of the tint on the inside of the shield. (This is eye I only give 4/5 stars)

Good product , good price.
I ordered the smoked version. And it really does a good job blocking out the Arizona sun. And also looks great.
