Scorpion EXO-1100 Helmet - Solids
I bought this product about one year and six months ago. The air flow and the light weight is what I'm most thankful of this helmet. They only bummer sauce about this product is how easy the face shield scratches. It does good both on and off road for me.

Overall great all around hemet.
Excellent product. My only concern are the (blue) plastic rivets behind the cheek pads that snap into the helmet. Two of them have already broken off. Not sure why they're not metal like the receiving end. Overall it's a very good helmet. Previous lid was an Arai Quantum f.

Great all rounder helmet
This is a great all rounder helmet - if you could only have one, I would suggest this one. I use this helmet during my commute and I can't complain. It does it's job, and well. Air flow is good, sun visor is super useful for those days you are riding both morning and night so you don't have to carry around a spare visor.
Shape is more for round heads - I have a more oval head and can feel myself getting a headache on longer rides. Another minor gripe I have is the top liner does not button near the brow, making it sag a little. Doesn't obscure vision, but can be annoying. Also not recommended for track days/racing - the way the viewport is constructed looking all the way through turns left/right while hanging off obscures your vision and is very distracting.
This helmet seems to have the best field of vision on a standard/more upright seating position.
Summary: Great commuter/touring helmet, not so great at track.

Decent Helmet, Nothing Special
Just about average in every aspect. Made for a more round style head. The shell construction feels fairly solid.
Face shield, drop down visor, and vents feel "clunky" and like they are made of cheap material. They almost feel like they would snap off with minimal amount of force. Granted this isn't a premium quality helmet, I guess I just expected a little more quality.
The face shield is easy to take off, however requires a little more effort than I'd like to put back on.
Good venting. Riding in 90-100 degree heat and don't break a sweat while riding at speed.
Air fit is nice, however if the bladders fail, you won't have a good cheek fit. Obviously.
At 70mph, with all the vents open, this helmet is unbearably LOUD. So unbearable that I had to pull over and buy earplugs. I'm hoping to give the benefit to the helmet due to all vents being open and it not creating a perfect seal around the bottom of my chin, but it was really, really bad. I asked a buddy of mine to switch helmets and he had the same problem. He rides with an open face and the wind noise was just about the same between the two.
Wore it on a 12 hour ride and held up nicely. Neck was a little sore, but I would expect that. Nothing unbearable. No pressure points for my particular head.
All in all a good helmet for putting around town or riding some back roads for the day. I would not recommend for long distance trips at highway speeds though, just for the wind noise. If you can get a better seal than me around the chin, hopefully that will fix the issue for you.

This helmet is fantastic!
Its a great helmet for the price and style. Going fast with the face shield down and all the vents open for max airflow, this helmet is very quite. The cheek pumps help create a great seal to block wind, however if sealed up good and with the right weather conditions the visor tends to fog but that is an easy fix with opening the visor a bit.

Great Helmet for the Price
As many other reviewers have noted, this helmet runs a little small. I purchased the next size up and the helmet has a little wiggle in it. However, the air pump system for the cheek pads takes almost all of the slack in the helmet. The helmet has decent air flow with all of the vents open, but, when the visor is locked barely open, the air flow is great. I have had very little problems with fogging as long as I am moving. Overall, great helmet for the price.

Great hi-viz style, inner visor not so great
I was looking for a hi-viz helmet that also had a drop down visor. The hi-viz part is exactly what I was looking for and the style was great. The fit is great. Love the ability to inflate the cheek pads. The drop down visor seems to distort the vision somewhat and I ended up getting a tinted visor instead of using that. But, for the price and being on clearance it's not a big deal, still love the helmet. People can definitely see me a lot better and I've gotten comments to that effect.
