I just received a Nolan N44 Storm, and I really WANT to like this thing... I mean it has SO many positives.

Huge field of view, I really appreciate this after wearing an open face helmet for such a long time.
Quiet and very little buffeting felt, I ride the Tiger 800 XC with a stock windshield and can feel the buffeting at freeway speeds on my open face, but not on the N44.
Fairly light and comfortable fit, a little bit hard to get on but once it's there it feels very comfortable
All the goodies, has the internal sun shield, pin lock system, and a bunch of accessories for converting it to different needs.

However, the chin strap is pure torture. The hard plastic part of it, that slips into the cam type buckle, has a very thin and hard edge that cuts right into my adams apple. I've tried several adjustments and just can't get it to stop.

After wearing the helmet for even a few minutes my neck is sore afterwards for quite some time.

I think I'm going to have to send it back.
