Arai SAI Face Shield
Got the screen shield in the dark gray which enables me not to wear sunglasses underneath. Protects my eyes during daytime riding, however I would not recommend these for nighttime riding at all. They do their job and tint the rider from the sun.

Who said these face shields are hard to install?
Bought the smoked face shield for my Arai RX-Q to replace the clear version. Awesome product that offers just the right amount of tint during the day so I can ride without the need of sunglasses and although it's not recommended, you can still make it home if you're caught out at night with this face shield on as the smoked version still allows you to see at night.
No need to ride with two face shields anymore.
Great customer service from Revzilla got it to my doorstep in two days!!!
And it shipped for free!!!
That's what I call a win/win.

I have the silver mirrored shield. Prior to purchasing it I would wear sunglasses behind clear shield, I have pretty sensitive eyes and wear sunglasses 99% of the time I am outdoors, even on cloudy days. I wish the tinting was just slightly darker for bright, direct sunlight, but it's a nice balance that allows me to wear the tinted shield even at dusk with plenty of visibility.
A word of warning, it will scratch a little more easily than I expected when cleaning the shield. I have a very fine scratch (most wouldn't notice) from using a paper towel to clean off some bugs.
The Arai system for switching shields is tricky at first, but if you watch the video it's very easy after the first couple of attempts.

Good add to your Arai
For daytime run, it is a must have. Provides eye comfort and less glare when running against the sun light. My only concern is that with 1 day of use, the corner where the lens is plugged into the helmet was scratched (from the natural moviment of opening and closing the lens). Nothing diferent than any other helmet visor, so it's ok.

Pricey but good in bright sun
It's Arai, so of course it's expensive.
The silver tint looks great and really helps on bright sunny days. The silvering looks very heavy from the outside (can't really see facial features at all) but from the inside you can see very well - except at night. It's not impossible to ride with at night but I don't recommend it because it definitely reduces how much you can see in the dark.
The fit on my RX-Q was perfect, once I figured out how to swap out lenses. I can get one shield off and the other on in about 30 seconds. Definitely recommend it if you're looking for a tinted lens.

Silver Tinted Mirror
Purchased this about a year ago and it worked great for around 6 months but it gets scratched up VERY easily. You should probably clean it very frequently as to not get anything to damage the tint. I dont use it anymore because it blurs my vision while riding because of the scratches. Just a heads up to take care of it otherwise it will be money down the drain.
