Do not buy a Scorpion "smoked" shield.
I bought a smoked shield for my old EXO700. If came quickly from Revzilla and installed easily. It fit the helmet perfectly and was optically good (no distortion). I went for a ride. When I came back, the shield was covered in dried bug guts, same as always. I sprayed a small amount of Costco glass cleaner on it, same as I do with all the plastic and glass on my bikes and on other helmets and shields and sunglasses. I used an old tee shirt, clean, and with no printing on it (a SOFT cloth). As I began to gently wipe the shield the tinting simply evaporated. It melted off like sugar coating. I was not applying undue pressure. I know how to clean things without screwing them up. The tinting is simply unsatisfactory. It is like it is sprayed on and intended for a one-time use. I called Scorpion and after much arguing and sending them photographs via email, which I doubt they ever looked at, they sent me a replacement. Well, the exact same thing happened, only this time I cleaned it with water. Fast forward a few months. I bought an EXOT1200 helmet, again from Revzilla, and it is a great helmet. I rode it for a few rides and then noticed the internal drop-down goggles were spotty. So, I wiped them off with a soft cloth and some Windex and - the tint wiped right off. OK, so, perhaps it is my bad and I should not be using window cleaner products. But on my Shoei shield there is no such problem. Also, on all my bikes plastics there is no problem. Same thing for sunglasses, plastic and glass. No problem. I replaced the tinted shield on my EXO700 with a reflective yellow shield from Scorpion, and it seems to be much tougher. It has a scratch in it, but I think there was probably a piece of grit on the rag. Other than that, it is holding up well to cleaning (with Costco window cleaner). I just bought a yellow shield for my T1200 helmet, and am hoping it is better than the tinted "smoke" shield. So, based on my own experience with three "smoke" tinted products, I have to say that you should NOT buy a tinted shield from Scorpion. That said, I think Scorpion helmets are a bullseye as far as bang-for-buck. They happen to fit my head perfectly, and they are built well and do not fall apart. The paint is good quality and the trim is solid. I prefer the lower end of the line, and I think the 700 helmets are the best way to go. The lining on the T1200, for example, is kind of sketchy (which is a weight-saving thing, IMO) in that it is a series of ridged contact points rather than a single head-holding cushion. It is kind of like a slatted chair versus a cushy chair. So, buy a Scorpion helmet if you like a clear shield or intend to spend almost $60.00 for a mirrored one, but do not buy one if you like tinted shields.

This product matced up perfect to my new helmet. The dark smoke color is a lot darker than it appears in the pictures. Perfect amount of tint for mid day riding, like wearing a pair of Ray-Bans.

New dark smoke models hazy/cloudy
I have two of these tinted face shields from last year. When I ordered a new one, it was very hazy in direct sunlight. Thinking it must have been a manufacturer defect, I ordered another one. This one is just as bad. Looking closer at my old face shield, it has a different tint to it, and is perfectly clear. I strongly recommend against the dark tinted model (I haven't tried any of the others) until they fix this obvious defect.

Clearly a good product.
My first lens started to bubble. Revzille saw the problem and they took prompt action to get it replaced.

Easy to install and looks great.
Bought this to replace the clear shield on my EXO-R2000 and its been great. Protection from the sun is fantastic and riding in low light (early morning) is also not a problem with this shield.

Can't go wrong with this purchase!!!
Just can't go wrong with this purchase!! It's a must!! It gives your helmet a nice touch!! It's definitely a head turner!! What I love about this shield is that it blocks a good amount of sun light and glare out that most of the time I dont need my sunglasses. I made the right choice purchasing this item!!!

Mirror finish didn't last long, but otherwise, good visor
Hard to say if I'd recommend this product to someone or not. If you don't plan on getting any bugs on your visor, you're fine. I got one bug on mine, and very gently wiped it off with a clean, damp, microfiber cloth, and...well, there's a huge chunk of the mirror finish missing. Right over my left eye. Very disappointed. I've worn it every day since I bought it about two months ago, and haven't had a single problem until that bee. I'm probably not going to continue using it, and will purchase an ordinary tinted shield.
The clarity is good, and I'll say that the anti-fog is amazing! I'm nervous to clean up the inside of the visor now, though, as some rain did make its way in and left some little ghost-droplets.
