Scorpion EXO-CT220 Hi Viz Helmet
Great fit, great features, great price
A little nervous when I first ordered the Scorpion EXO-CT220 given some of the reviews on fit, but given Revzilla's amazing return policy I went ahead an bit the bullet. After a few dozen uses, I can safely say that this is one of the best fitting and comfy helmets I've worn in 25+ years or riding. I have a fairly large and true oval shaped dome but stuck with the sizing recommendations on the Revzilla site. Helmet broke in nicely after about two uses.
As an MSF instructor, I'm putting this thing on and taking it off all day long while on the range with students and I have zero complaints about fit, comfort, visibility, or general features/operation. My one and only gripe is wishing for more air flow/air vents. The visor and full shield both work flawlessly and I use them intermittently/frequently depending on conditions for the day. And it's light enough that I never feel burdened by having to keep it on for longer periods while talking/demo'ing to students.
Can't go wrong with this helmet in my opinion. If you're looking for an open face with a number of good and useful features, look no further.

Good Features, size chart was wrong for us.
Went by the size chart and checked several times before I ordered. Both were two small and after 30 miles it was so un-comfortable we stopped and took then off, should have ordered a size bigger. Ordered a medium for the wife and large for me, but way to tight. Make sure go to a store and check different helmets out before you order any helmet.

My head measures at the top end of a small (22"), I ordered the small and it is tight on the cheek bones but good front to back
The ear pockets don't bother me like my modular (Scorpion EXO-GT3000) did along the tops of my ears for quite a while
There are no gaps at the temples (unlike the HJC IS-33 II) so it is a very quiet helmet and behind my big cruiser screen I haven't needed ear plugs yet
I adjusted the internal visor down further to 4 from the stock 3 setting
The internal visor is a bit darker than the HJC and comes down a bit further
The clarity of both visors is exceptionally good and the outer visor is plenty long enough and seals good
I also like the D ring strap and the vents are easy to use
My only quam is that the peek can't be used at the same time as the outer visor - one or the other
It should be a very comfortable helmet once fully broken in
Best helmet out of my last four - I like it

the product performs as promise
video review was spot on, I have a large oval head, and scorpion was one of the few choices that fit my head, using the info from ridzilla I ordered the correct size first try.

You get what you pay for
I like the look of the helmet and it pretty much does what I was looking for it to do. It's light, it has a built in sun visor, lots of air flow, comes with removable peak and face shield. It's a great deal for $150!
With that said, some of the negatives about the helmet is that the peak option is great for city riding, but once you hit 50+ it will catch wind. I thought I would get used to this, but I got tired of fighting the wind and decided to ride without the peak option. The helmet still looks great without it though so that's a plus in my book.
Also, the sun visor mechanism gave me trouble from the start. On my first day trying the helmet it would get stuck 1/3 of the way down no matter how hard I pushed the slider on the side. It eventually snapped out and I had to pull over and luckily nothing broke and I was able to lock it back into place. I now push the slider till it drops down the usual 1/3 way down and pull it down the rest of the way with my hand. I don't know what is causing this problem though, because when I pull it down with my hand it goes down really easy.
Last thing is this helmet fits small and is rather narrow. Glad I went with my gut feeling and decided on going with the XXL instead of the XL. The cheek pads were tight. It was so tight it gave me a headache the first day. After a couple of hours I got used to it and the cheek pads got bearable. I do have chubby cheeks though, so if you suffer from chubby cheeks as well I suggest going with a size bigger.
I still don't regret buying this helmet. It looks awesome and offers what I was looking for and more. I do regret not spending the extra money to buy a better helmet. The faulty mechanism was a great upset. Even GMax offers sub $100 helmets with internal sun visors that work great. I expected more quality goodness from Scorpion <\3

Nice features, good price
Nice helmet with inner and outer shields. Only problem encountered was with the cheek pads unsnapping and losing a snap. Scorpion customer service sent out replacement snaps quickly. Colors are limited but I would purchase again.

This helmet is right on the money for size, comfort and good looks. It has to be modified just a little for the ear pieces that come with the Harley-Davidson headsets. That's the only reason I didn't give this helmet the highest rating, so if you don't use the headsets, the rating would be even higher.

Two for one!
In the past I have always had two helmets, full-face for cold weather and open-face for warm. With this one I get two helmets in one! Haven't had a chance to wear it with the visor yet but it's comfortable to wear and the vent system is a plus. I highly recommend this helmet!
