Just got back from a somewhat chilly ride. The helmet is comfortable though it's going to take some getting used to. I purchased the XL and glad I did. My brain bucket is a medium and if I had ordered a L in this helmet it would have been too tight. With a balaclava in the winter it would have been no joy.
I can't say if it was loud or not but going to say yes, a little. I'm hearing all different sounds now that my ears are covered with more than just padding like in my half helmet.
Down side, I ride faster. Lot faster. I feel more invincible and that's not a good thing. I think it's because I feel more caged.
Oh, the chin strap seems like it's a little too far back toward my throat if I don't make a conscious effort to put the helmet in the proper position. This is fact is my ONLY complaint.
Great airflow, like I said, it was chilly and I felt all of it. I wish I had put on a neck tube thingy.
Two thumbs up and a great buy for under $130
ONE more thing, I wish I could get that GMAX logo thing off the front :-)
