Good tinted visor, not too dark, but get rid of all the glare. Not too easy to install. But highly recommended.

Does what I wanted, reduces glare, looks sick, matches my bike
It works, it's crystal clear, doesn't distort colours, looks amazing, install is so simple and quick, and it's pretty cheap. I'll have a few around for sure

The mirrored shield is the best!
I have the blue mirrored face shield and it is by far the best purchase for my Arai Defiant helmet. It looks seriously badass and makes riding on bright sunny days far more comfortable. I think it even helps keep the helmet a bit cooler because it reflects some of the sunlight that would otherwise enter the helmet warming it up.
I would say that the blue mirror visor is not so dark as to make it difficult to see if you suddenly go in to a tunnel or underpass where there isn't sunlight and potentially not much artificial lighting. But that does mean it can still let a bit too much light through when you're riding directly towards the sun when it's near the horizon, but even then it's not blinding, just a bit uncomfortable.
I know having a tinted shield means carrying an extra if it's going to get dark while you're riding, but for those days when you know it'll be light out (even overcast is no problem) the entire time you're riding I highly recommend a mirrored shield.

Good shield but not what I wanted
My fault, really, but I did not realize that you could not add the pro visor system to this shield. I wanted to replace the clear shield on my signet q pro with a light smoke tinted shield, then still use the drop down pro visor. This fits the signet q well and is a quality visor, but can not be used with the visor system. I actually asked this question before purchasing, but apparently the customer service rep either made a mistake or didn't understand the question. No problem, it's good for a spare.

Dark tint is great for sensitive eyes
I bought this over the pinlock because I read that the tint on the full visor was a little darker. I'm really affected by glare and sun, and this works great. Vision is crystal-clear, it doesn't fog up on cold mornings, and the brow vents move a lot of air.
Shipping to Canada was much faster than expected; I was pleasantly surprised!

Fits as it should
Dark Smoke Tinted visor essential for Track days in Texas. Fit perfectly in my new RX-Q. Some serious fogging problems but that's with most visors except my Scorpions. Never had a problem with them fogging. Changed to the Arai anti fog visor until the temperatures increased. Worked perfectly.

What a difference
I got the dark smoke one. I've never had a tinted visor, and as someone who doesn't like the hassle of wearing sunglasses under a helmet, I was always squinting while riding with my clear visors. The dark smoke visor is amazing. No more squinting at all, but I expected that much. What really surprised me is how clear my vision is through this thing. I thought everything would look really dark, but it's barely noticeable from the inside of the helmet. My riding includes a lot of riding in very bright sun, and then coming around a corner and going into a dark redwood forest. The transition is almost unnoticeable with this visor.
