I will say this is an extremely comfortable helmet, could use a bit more airflow but I'll live with it!! I saved hundreds!!!

The most amazing helmet that all but choked me out
This was an amazingly light and comfortable helmet until I tightened the chin strap. I immediately felt a lump in my throat which only worsened the longer I had it on. I had to struggle to swallow - hence the low rating on comfort. (Whoever thought it was a good idea to put a ski boot binding on your throat needs the contents of his/her helmet examined). Some recommended putting velcro on the padding under the strap but I can't see how the velcro would make a difference since the protection pads were at least initially in place and didn't seem to help.
Otherwise, clearly well made helmet to be sure. The face opens easily and feels very secure when locks. The build in sun visor is great and the inside liner and cheek pads were very soft and comfortable. A little on the warmer side but at speed was OK. Again, very light and everything but the chin strap screamed quality. I have a 7 5/8" hat size and usually go with a large in the Shoei but this one I really needed the XL.
But first and foremost, I bought this helmet for the claims that it was amazingly quiet. I was not impressed. It is still crazy loud at speed and I had to start wearing ear plugs, which I did not do before. I would venture that if other companies were willing to put their decibel rating on their helmets, you'd see may others with 84 decibel or lower. It was not any quieter than my 10 year old cheep-o HJC! All and all, I was left dissatisfied after spending top dollar for a helmet that did not meet the hype and choked me.
Do yourself a favor and wear the thing for like an hour in the dealership. Try to take a drink/swallow, sit on a bike and see how it feels after sitting in a full tuck, or whatever your riding position is.

This helmet was expensive but worth the investment.
The helmet fit as described and, luckily, my head matched the shape. It's a little noisier than my last Schubert, a C2. The air flow through the vents is excellent! 90 plus degree days are quite tolerable as long as I am moving. I installed the Pinlock insert to keep the thing from foging up in early morning traffic. I hope it does as good a job this fall and winter!

Great quality. Lightweight & Comfortable.
It is noticeably lighter and smaller than other modular helmets. The chin-bar, face shield, sun shield, and other moving parts work great.
When I first received it, I thought I was going to have to send it back because it was so tight, especially in the cheek-ped area. It broke in a little, and now it is very comfortable even when worn all day.
The vent on the top works well. Even on a hot day, I get a cool spot on the top of my head. However i have to keep my windshield adjusted down to keep a good airflow through the top vent.
Neither the sun shade or the face shield is polarized. If I'm heading west in the evening, or east in the morning, I need to wear polarized sunglasses to reduce the glare off the pavement and cars ahead. This is a glaring omission in a high-end product like this.

Perfect Helmet for me
I moved up from an HJC IS-MAX that I had bounced on the ground a couple of times with my head in it. It was gravel that caused me to go down and my riding buddy told me about the head bouncing. The helmet was not damaged to the untrained eye but I was not taking any chances. I thought about getting another HJC since that one had saved my noggin but I saw this C3 on sale and after thinking it over decided to try something that would have better sound control and was engineered to a different level. I was right, this helmet fits like a glove, does not squeeze me but does not allow movement of the helmet on my head. It has very nice interior materials and just feels solid while being lighter than my HJC.
For the price this could not be beat and I am very happy that I went ahead and paid the extra to get the better product. My ears thank me, it is so very quiet that non-freeway driving is actually pleasant without ear plugs, on the freeway there is still just enough that I want the ear plugs since I ride long distances but it is more like riding in a luxury car than an old pickup sound that my HJC had.

Good helmet for my head, all around
3X fits my big head very comfortably. The locking mechanism for flip-up face-shield has positive snap when locked in properly. Chin strap release works well even with my gloves. Tinted sun-visor works well and is adequate even when facing directly into a morning or afternoon sun. The Hi-Vis Yellow pops, you can't miss it! This is the only helmet I have ever owned so I can't compare to others, but I am very happy with the fit and features and would repeat the purchase even at the current price. I wish there was a little more airflow, but I haven't had any fogging so far and it seems quiet (relatively speaking).

This is definitely a testament to German Engineering. The fit and finish are exceptional. You get what you pay for and this helmet proves it.
