I just purchased the HJC SY Max III and probably one of the most comfortable helmets I have worn.
Light and great vision, you can add a chatterbox to it and the venting isnt bad.
One of the main things I looked for was the chin bar hooks were metal.
You can go with a Shoei but you are stepping into another price domain with those
I would suggest you grab which ever helmet you think you want and (even though you may look foolish) wear it around the store for awhile. Make sure you have no pinching/rubbing/whatever else your head feels. Most shops have a no return policy as soon as you walk out the door with the helmet. (to qualify that statement, at least here in Victoria)
