Arai SAI Dual Pane Face Shield
It works (that's it)
Hey my visor doesn't fog up.
What else do you need to know

Does the job
This face shield does exactly what it says it does. Its a bit heavy and the gasket across the top take awhile to break in to allow it to close all the way (at least on my helmet). But it never fogs up. I definitely buy it again.

Works well at speeds over 20 mph
I had no fogging problems except a low speeds. That was easily fixed by slightly lifting the visor. I road 120 miles Saturday night ( much of it in the fog) and didn't experience any problems with glare or fogging. . I should say I normally have some night vision problems as I'm 58 so I wear glasses with Crysal lenses and that has really improved my night vision. Installing the visor was a little difficult, partly because I've never changed out my visor, but with a little patience I got it done.

Light Smoke Dual Pane Shield
Works as advertised. The rubber gasket makes it a little harder to close the vent, but nothing impossible. Brow vents gone. Using on a defiant. Light smoke is feasible at night but being a beginner rider, i prefer a clear view at night until i am more experienced.
but the main points are covered. there is absolutely no fogging for me, and i have been using this shield in 50-70 degree weather. Must be my asian face, but when i breathe everything fogs up, including my glasses. this shield prevents that, now I have to defog my eyeglasses :/

Cold weather vision
Has the Arai tool-less removal, installation. If you're not done this before, I would encourage watching a video demo. This shield has a larger gasket for water sealing, and requires a firm closure to lock it in place. Once closed, the clarity is wonderful and I only have mild fogging with temps in the low 20s. I commute 6 miles to work and fogging has not been a problem. None at all with temps in the 30s and 40s and only mild fogging in the lower area of the shield in the 20s. You do lose the brow vents, but I rarely used these even on warm days.

I'm not saying anything about the actual use of this product because I haven't had to use it yet. All I'm saying is for that much money it doesn't even come with a storage cover of some kind? I mean a majority of it's life will be spend waiting in a box somewhere and not used and they don't even give you some kind of cloth to keep it in for the crazy amount of money they charge you for it?

Great fog resistance
I bought this to replace my Pinlock system on my Arai RXQ due to sliding and scratching of the shield from the pinlock insert after several thousand miles of use. So far it has performed excellent down to 13 F and in the rain. I would recommend this over a pinlock setup as a new pinlock insert and shield is only $20 or so cheaper than buying this one piece solution and I don't see where I would need to replace this one until I replace the helmet.

I got this instead of the pin lock because I didn't want to deal with fragile pins and I wanted an unobstructed field of view. I've never used a pin lock so take that with a grain of salt.
Anyhow, this shield works very well. No fog, a tight seal and a clear view. Not much else it can do. In the cool weather I don't miss the eyebrow vents.
The only issue is a minor one: when it locks into the closed position - it really locks down; bare hands no issue but fiddly with gloves. This is great for the highway but I leave it unsnapped until the highway.
Also, if like me, you wear glasses, I've been using a product called "defog it" (clever no) and it works great - no fogging up. Pricey but you don't need much.
