Shoei RF-1200/RF-1100/Qwest/Neotec/GT-Air Breath Guard
Really for Looks Only
I upgraded to the RF-1200 a few months back from my RF-1000 and for some reason didn't get the breath guard, so I ordered one since I liked having it on my previous helmet.
The styling is far more subdued on this version than the older style. The older one was more aggressive and larger, which I actually kind of liked, since it did a great job of helping with fog. That being said, the RF-1200 with the pinlock lens doesn't really need a breath guard since you never get fog anyways, WHICH IS AWESOME! Anyways, I like the looks of helmets with the breath guards in even though it wasn't totally necessary anymore, and ordered one up. I still like it, just personal preference wishing it was shaped more like the old ones. Also, doesn't seem to fit as perfect as the older style, but haven't had a single issue with it coming loose or moving around.
TL;DR - good for looks, but with the pinlock system it's not really necessary.

Looks Very Nice/ Easy to Install
Let me say first off that this breath guard restricts airflow within your helmet significantly coupled with the chin curtain. With that being said it was easy to install and durable. But keep in mind that for a couple of days you will have to push it back in the slots in your helmet for it to stay/ conform to your helmet shape. Also like previously mentioned it restricts the airflow in your helmet pretty noticeably. It kind of keeps your air that you are breathing in a little pocket around your mouth/ nose, and unless you are moving you can definitely feel the lack of oxygen. This is easy to fix; just pop up your visor and it's fixed. Overall it's worth the money and worth buying through Revzilla. (I ordered one from amazon and it ended taking 3 weeks to get here, with Revzilla it took 3 days)

Good look, function and ease of use
I like the nose guards as try cut down on fog from breathing, air flow at speed so my Bluetooth works better and it makes the helmet look that much more had azz.
Snaps right in and is more secure than my previous helmet.

Great replacement and is OEM Exact Fit
Somehow I misplaced my breath guard on my RF1100 and was glad to see Revzilla have it in stock and for a fair price. Does what it is designed to do and is the exact same one that comes with the helmet from the factory. At least this was the case with my RF1100. Perfect fitment and perfect functionality.

Also works for the GT-AIR
Lost the breath guard for my GT-AIR and I called Shoei and they said the RF-1100, QWEST and GT-AIR all use the same part. I plan on ordering one.
