Helmet fits great and looks great (well about as good as a helmet can look). The padding inside isn't thick at all. It's thin yet comfortable. There could be a few more vents in my opinion since I can see how warm it will get on a bluebird day, but other than that, I love it. Also, the earpads have a zipper so you can open them and drop in ear phones. You don't have to get the RED earphones. I actually used some headphones I had and dropped those in and they work great.
