The adjustment over the bridge of your nose is far enough down that if you tighten it enough to really seal, you'll plug your nostrils. Allows me to ride just fine, though. I don't fog my shield with it, just the glasses if I don't watch my breathing. Installation's a breeze. just pull 2 snaps.

I picked up the dark tint and thought it might be too dark..nope, its perfect for daytime riding. I've been caught at work late and had to wear it in dusk and its still OK which surprised me. I would like a better / larger tap to flip it up & down. The dark tint looks great with the white helmet.

When I bought an Arai helmet I thought I was buying the top of the food chain helmet. Not so. Let me start with the complaints. The face shield has nothing at all on it for fog! I have been ride with a Uvex for the last three years and it still does not fog up excpt for around the nose area. The first rain I ran through with this XD4 and the face shield fog up so bad I could not see anything. Open it a bit and still did not help. After the rain when I stopped for fuel I put my hand inside the helmet and was cleaning the outside of the face shield and it still fogged up! New out of the box after opening the face shield three or four times and it is scratched on the side. Really, Arai, you cannot do better than this? The XD4 is one of the noisiest helmets I have ever worn. Again, I compare it to my Uvex. I had better find something good to say about this very expensive helmet. It fits great. Riding all day and I did not have those painful little hot spots that some helmets give you. Also, with the peek you would expect some wind to pick it up push you around. With the XD4 I had very little trouble with this. I have some blown disks in my neck and fighting the wind and helmet all day can be a pain in the neck, I had very little trouble with this helmet. It does vent air much better than my Uvex. And it is lighter than my Uvex. Overall it is a good helmet. I am very shocked that Arai has not done something to keep their face shield from fogging up.

Purchased this tinted face shield about a month ago, to replace factory clear one. It fits just like the factory one, and provides the perfect level of tinting for me.
