So Far, So Good!
Just received my new SS1100 Moto Mercenary helmet (white) yesterday & wore it to work this morning. So far I really like it. It fits a touch snug, but the pads haven't been broken in yet. Definitely made for a Intermediate to long oval head shape. Round headed folks probably would need a size larger than normal to fit as it is a bit more narrow than average. Perfect for me though & I can still fit my sunglasses. Once the padding breaks in I expect it to feel even better.
I also ordered the helmet with the mirror shield. Fairly basic install. Removing the clear shield was a breeze. Installing the new mirror shield took a bit more work as I couldn't see the pins through the shield which made lining things up a "little" tricky. Still not bad though.
Like I said, I've on wore it once on the way to work so far but must say it's much quieter than my old HJC CL-12 helmet or any of my half-helmets. Just a very light touch of wind noise at speeds over 50mph & with a touch of a cross wind. Nothing to complain about here. Keep in mind that I ride a '13 Victory Vision so I don't get a ton of wind in my face anyway. Sport bike riders may have a different opinion on wind noise. Only problem I had was that I had to turn my stereo up a couple notches higher than normal to hear it like I normally would.
Last, Revzilla was awesome!!! I called on Monday, during my lunch hour, to get a little info on a couple helmets and opinions on which may suit me best. Ordered the helmet over the phone. Tuesday morning I received the typical "order shipped" email with tracking number. Tracked the package to find out it was already here & delivered. ONE day for processing & free shipping? How do you beat that?
Thanks Revzilla for the great service, good price and quick shipping,

Great helmet in all categories. Quiet w/o being completely silent. VERY light. Easy on and off. Only thing is i would like to see a polarized face shield for this model. Revzilla was great. Got my order very fast. Will definately order from them again.

Great all around helmet for any weather
A feature I never thought I would appreciate is the quick-release ratcheting chin strap. You can easily put it on or take it off without removing gloves, which is a huge bonus for me. I won't ever get a helmet with a normal strap again!
The breath guard works great, the front vent is easy to operate and definitely works when open, however the "top of the head" vents aren't as noticeable...it has to be pretty cold/windy to feel the wind coming through them.
Overall I found that a "Large" fit me better than an "XL", and I usually wear XL in other brands (like Bell). This one I suggest trying on to get the right size.
Also note the padding will break in quite a bit, so after a week of riding it gets much less stiff but still stable, and comfortable enough for very long rides.
One other thing - I got the blue/white version and it gets a lot of compliments (especially from older folks).
10/10 would recommend!

I absolutely love this helmet.
I purchased a medium and it was to large for my head so I would say maybe go with a size smaller. I returned the helmet cor a small and it arrived three days after I gave it to the UPS store. I am overly satisfied with my purchase. The sm fits amazing and is very comfortable and stylish! The helmet I wore before would start to get loose when I reached over 60mph. This helmet fit really snug and doesn't budge a bit. I would recommend this product 100x over again.

Great Helmet for the price
This is an awesome stylish helmet for the price. The fit was a little tight out of the box but after a few days the padding broke in and it fits nice now. Great airflow with the vents open. As far as loud, I've been using an open helmet for the last few years on my cruiser so the noise is not a problem for me but it might be a little loud for people that have more exp with full face helmets. I would buy another one

SS1100 Stars and Stripes
This helmet was my first and I am extremely happy with it. It fits very well and it looks awesome plus I have gotten multiple compliments about it as well. I have not had a single problem with the shield fogging with the clear or smoked shield which is awesome. My favorite part is definitely the quick release strap and it feels secure as well so your not losing any durability with the ease of use. The wind can get a bit noisy at times but mostly when there is a cross wind but nothing too bad I can still easily here my ipod over the wind. Overall it is a great helmet for the price.
