I just bought a new Noland N100-5 and ordered a B901L from Italy to use with it.

Most comfy helmet I have ever tried on. Perfect fit.

I have an HJC IS-MAX II modular that I've had for a few year. It's a relatively light & economical modular & I've put a Scala Cardo Rider Q2 on it, for intercom use.
They're not made anymore, but they have a minorly updated version.

I just ordered a Scorpion exo-at950, in white.
I wanted a modular helmet that wouldn't interfere with my glasses. I have been getting tired of my hjc pushing my glasses down after a half an hour or so.
The scorpion is a modular "adventure" helmet, with a larger face opening, to accommodate goggles, off road, but it does have a flip shied too.
I tried one on today & immediately ordered the gloss white one that I want. The fit was most comfortable, no glasses interference, even from the built in sunshield.
I'll provide feedback on use after I get it.

I have the AT-950 medium with large cheek pads in it that fits well and is reasonalby quiet, but I usually wear my Shoei Neotec II that I got a screaming deal on at a local dealer's one day only in stock helmet sale.  They had exactly 1 medium size helmet.  I'm guessing they were intending to place an order to re-stock and wanted to be able to order enough quantity for an extra price break.

I've been using the EXO-AT950 in the Neocon orange for a year or so now.  I took off the sun visor and love this helmet.  The large opening (meant to be able to take small to medium goggles for off road) offers great field of view.  I find it super comfortable, not too heavy and I love the way it looks.  The sunshield has a great snap to it (which I prefer to the sliding ones).  It is not a quiet helmet though but I always ride with ear plugs in, and if you take the chin screen thing off it's even louder (I had to to this for my Comm's mike for opening and closing the visor.

If I could add one thing to the helmet it would be to be able to open the visor just a crack, but I don't have any real fogging issues so it's a minor complaint.

Would buy again.

I got my Scorpion exo-at950 & added a silver coated face shield. I, also, removed the visor.
I, also, have to admit that most of the time I ride with my face shield all the way open, since I do wear glasses. The sunshield works well, even with my glasses!
This helmet is so much better that the hjc that it replaces, although it is a little noisier that I had expected.
All in all, it a quite fine modular helmet & I love it!
Priced well too!

I've been very pleased with my Bell SRT Modular.  Fiberglass construction (I really don't like polycarb helmets) and it fits me better than the Shoei Neotech that I had previously.  In the last Iron Butt Rally I went pretty much the entire 11 days without taking it off other than a few hours each day to sleep (one day I didn't even do that as I slept next to the bike with my helmet on).
