Arai SAI Face Shield
Arai quality - enough said.
1) Optically perfect, no issue at at all with distortion. Bright sunlight is sufficiently attenuated with the dark smoke shield; feels cooler inside.
2) Looks awesome (and mysterious) - the dark tint really complete the look of my helmet - sorry for being vain - but it had to be noted! (Since, I wear orange gear- I was, however, accused of looking like a Power Ranger...)
1) None of substance really - but I was not able to change the shield as easily as Anthony does in the video. Perhaps I need to practice a few more times - but he made it look so easy while I was still having to jack around with it. Again, perhaps more practice needed.
2) This is not a con but rather a statement. I purchased the dark smoke shield; this is not intended for night use. It's fine at dawn or dusk - but you cannot use this shield at night.

Dark Tint Shield
I picked up the dark tint shield for my RX-Q helmet. The fitment is great, fits just like the clear one that came out of the box. It was nice that it came with silicone lube to apply to the hinges where the mechanism are. I assume we should do this ever so often to keep the action smooth.
The dark tint is dark enough where people cant see me face, which is important to me. It does a good job of blocking on the sun on a sunny day, and is not too dark to wear at night. I don't plan on swapping out shields when riding at night with this one.

Good product, arrived quickly
Not much to say, OEM Arai visor at Arai's too-high prices. Nothing against Revzilla. Fits and works great just as Arai always does. Shipment arrived quickly.

Great shield! Perfect amount of tint and fits just the way it should.

Purchased the mirrored visit for my Arai helmet, have been using it for a little over a month and absolutely love it! Perfect for sunny days but not too dark on cloudy days.

ARAI Blue Mirror face shield
I was to the point of not being able to see in the blasting sun, this face shield solved that problem. Besides looking very cool and matching the colors on my amazing Bomb Signet Q helmet, looking through this shield is like wearing a dark pair of sunglasses. You even feel cooler in the sun.
In spite of Anthony's clear video about how to install I found it to be a struggle. Granted I was concerned about scratching my helmet and was being extra careful but it did take 5-6 tries to get it installed. And finally, for my eyes the visor is too dark for night riding.

No need to wear sunglasses
Enough sun blocking so I don't need to wear sunglasses. Unlike some have reported, I found my vision at night was negatively impacted and will never get stuck out at night with this face shield on.

ordered the dark smoke shield
I would say that the dark smoke isn't as dark as some of the pictures depicted but it does the job during very sunny days and I can even use it at night (although I know it's not really recommended). Only trouble I had was actually putting it on. When I swap to my clear one I have, I can swing that shield on no problem. When I have to go back to putting the smoke one on, it is a pain and initially I thought it was a bad fit. Might be that the edges haven't been worn in (even though I put lubricant on it) but it's always difficult putting the smoke back on. Not sure if anyone else has this problem but I run into multiple times when switching shields. If I end up buying another helmet I'll just make one for day and one for night use. Other than that, pretty happy with it.
