Scorpion EXO-CT220 Hi Viz Helmet
I am very pleased with this helmet. The only issue I have is that the sun screen, which is sometimes difficult to actuate; however the flip side is that when lowered, it is adjustable, so that when riding into the sun I both wear sunglasses and lower the sunscreen to the point where it is slightly above my horizon. It is not a perfect helmet but it is a good value.

Great for fairing bikes
I didn't buy it from Revzilla due to timing of needing it, but wanted to comment here.
I own a half and a modular helmet that I have used on all of my bikes. Once I traded my VROD in for a Road Glide is when I started needing something new. The modular has great protection but almost no air flow behind my fairing and windshield. I would have to remove the visor or ride with the front flipped up in hot weather or slow moving traffic. For long rides I didn't want to use my half helmet and a mask. So began my search.
Most 3/4 helmets with visors only come down to maybe lip level or just below. This helmet comes down to the bottom of my chin. So for protection sake, it keeps rain and bugs off of my face. With it being so low, it provides plenty of wind protection while allowing a lot of air movement since there is nothing on your chin to blow breathing.
There is noise when the vents are open and riding my bike, but that has a lot to do with where the air flow is on my bike. The vents work great, they just get a little loud at freeway speeds.
This helmet is perfect for someone wanting decent protection, but good airflow behind a shield or faring. Gives you a lot of nice features for usability and protection and looks pretty good too. Not wide like the Bell Mag 9 that I had also considered.
Oh and fitment. I have a more oval head, so a LOT of the 3/4 helmets have never quite fit right. This one is spot on. I wore it immediately after buying for over an hour on the ride home and not a single sore spot on my head.

Great helmet for the price.
This is my second Scorpion helmet. The fit is perfect.
The airflow and comfort of this helmet is excellent.
I have not had a chance to try the anti fog coating yet .
I wish there was a pinlock ready face shield available.
I have tried on helmets costing much , much , much more than this one. Maybe they are a little lighter or nicer finish but not equal to their exorbitant price.
I like the feature of being able to remove the face shield and easily install the visor .
I highly recommend this helmet.

Far too loud.
Pay attention to an earlier review that stated the noise inside this helmet sounds like a jet engine when you open the vents. He is right! If you ride in warm enough weather to open the vents, you will not like it. Unfortunately, for me to find that out for myself, I had to wear it, making it unreturnable.
Too bad. All the other features make it really desirable.

Good product for the price
Its not a Shoei, but it doesn't have the top end price tag either.
built in sun visor works well, good ventilation, not sure how well it would preform in a high speed impact, I love it for below 55mph driving.
Clear outer face shield fogs up even in warmer weather.

Great quality and fit.
The helmet fits well, with good visibility all-round. Both my wife and I have the same helmet, and have enjoyed long ride with no discomfited.

This helmet makes me feel like Marvin the Martian because it's big and round on me. I can wear this thing all day long ( I have) in 90* weather without hesitation. I've seen guys in half helmets have just as much sweat on them when were stopped, but when it's humid your going to sweat regardless of what your wearing. It's very nice for a 3/4. The flip down eye shade is awesome. Keeps bugs and sand out of my eyes at all riding speeds, than at night I just flip it up with the slot switch on the side of the head and switch to a pair of clear protective glasses. Which brings me to my next point, the slide switch on the side of he head is easily found with no fus and works flawlessly. Just be careful if you ever go to pull out the cheak pads. I got my but kicked for 45 minutes trying to figure it out but you simply unsnap the white button like pieces and pull them out, than snap them to the check pad and put them both in at once. You can try and slide the pad on them all you want. Might get lucky, but I doubt it lol. Over all the helmets got air flow, safety, looks and functional style. I would deffinatly recommend this to any one.

I bought it for a short daily commute where I feel safe in an open face helmet. It's great.
