Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I love this type of ultralight packable gilet when there's any chance of variable temps on a ride. Packs away to nothing in rear pocket, but is there when you need it-weighs only 75g. Similar to wind vests from Assos and Sportful, but the fit is better here; form-fitting and aero but not so snug I need to size up (Med-5’11"/158lbs/38 chest). Mesh back panel for ventilation and stretches for freedom of movement. Reflective accents are cool too. Should be great when Spring get's here!

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Great-looking, Italian-made, budget-friendly helmet with one fatal flaw: the oversize rear retention cradle interferes with ends of sunglasses making this a non-starter for me. No amount of adjustment would fix this for any pair of eyewear I tried, normal eyeglasses included. Over, under, loosened retention etc. - all resulted in either poor helmet fit, discomfort or sunglasses falling forward. Thought of modifying a cheap pair of shades by trimming 1 cm off arms just so I could wear this, but decided it wasn't worth it.

Otherwise I'd rate the fit/comfort pretty good, not quite as comfortable as my Giro Foray. With my 56CM head size I'm usually at the bottom range of most size mediums, making some models look more bulbous on me; the Rapido doesn't and has a more streamlined, closer to head fit.

Shame because I really wanted to like this helmet-it's easily one of the best-looking models I've tried on. Hoping Kask eventually get this issue sorted someday, as apparently I'm not alone with eyewear problems based on other reviews.
