Very similar to my BRP Modular which I love.
Best thing since sliced bread.

They are great for those of us who have to wear glasses too as you will not have to remove them just to put it on.

Since the first day I put on a moto style helmet with googles/quick straps I'll NEVER wear a helmet with a sheild, and I wear glasses and smoke.

I second that!! You will notice a loss of side vision as soon as the face comes down though. get the electric defroster lens if it is in your budget.

The biggest benefit is you don't have to take off your helmet to smoke a cig, or pound a beer.

That helmet is kinda expensive for not having a heated shield. You can get a Gmax with a heated shield for that price. After using the modular for the last 2 years I wont wear anything else. Its so nice to be able to take a drink, talk, go into the store while getting gas & not have to take the helmet off. Definitely worth the extra money.
