Great Helmet !!
Fits perfectly and very comfortable. Has the built in shield that is great when the sun is in your eyes. Everyone who has tried on this helmet agrees that it is one of the best they have worn, even those with glasses. Measure your head and go by the sizing guide and you should be very happy with the fit. I don't listen to music while I ride and the noise level isn't a problem for me with a Two Brothers exhaust.

Great helmet! Don't be afraid to try it!
This helmet is a well built, quality helmet. According to the charts I was between a large and X-large and I chose the large, helmet is a bit snug but should be perfect when it breaks in. It has great air flow when you open the vents although it is slightly louder when you do. Internal visor works great, it will just take me a bit of time to get used to the operating lever since I spent years with my last helmet with the mechanism on the top.

Kabuto Kamui Stinger
Nice helmet for the money. Fits snug as racing helmet, go up a size if round face. Air flow is good, did try it on in a 90 degree weather and no overheating.

Solid little helmet
I've had a chance to give this about a 200 miles of commuter riding and this is a pretty solid little helmet.

Fit & Comfort:
The fit is pretty spot on. I'm in the upper range of the Medium(23) and between a round and intermediate shape head. The first few rides I had slight pressure at my forehead but once the padding wore in a bit, it was perfect. Putting the helmet on and off is also quite tight along the temples due to the bottom of the cheek pads. I believe the medium was at the top end of the first shell size, so I didn't want to move up to a new shell size. The difference in shell sizes between HJC and the Kabuto are apparent.

Comfort is on par with my last two helmets (HJC IS-16, GMAX gm68s), but seems slightly heavier. The padding also has a similar feel to the HJC. It wicks away sweat very well and keeps me relatively cool even in stop and go traffic at 90*F.

Airflow & Noise:
Airflow seems ok. I can never really tell though. In commuting traffic I keep the visor open a crack and its enough to cool me in hot weather. Once speed gets going there's a good amount of air circulating. There's way more detents for the visor as well than in my HJC.

Noise for me seems to be louder than my HJC. I wear earplugs and I still hear a good amount of wind noise. I'm not sure how water tight the gasket is either, the visor seems to just close and doesn't pull tight when closed like the HJC.

Other thoughts:

I was able to fit a generic bluetooth communicator with no problems, and even use a clip mount despite the thick rubber trim. The boom does get in the way a bit when putting it on so I have to position it higher up near the breath guard.

The ratcheting chin strap is fine. I have no preferences with either method. There's still a D ring to attach the helmet to a helmet lock.

The inner sun visor is nice, but a little less polished compared to the rest of the helmet. When I first got it, the visor fell out of its slot and I had to secure it, otherwise it kept getting stuck in the shell. The internal visor mechanism on the HJC feels more substantial. Its also much easier to access with gloved hands, but once I got used to the location of the lever on the Kabuto, its not too bad. The tint also seems to be a shade darker than the HJC. The HJC comes down further, but the Kabuto comes down enough.

Overall fit and finish is nicer than my HJC. It just feels like a much more solid helmet.
