So, I ended up buying an OGK FF5V. This hemet is awsome. At approx. 300, and being helmet of the year for wBW (ff5), I think this was a great buy. Can't wait to test it out when I go home in the summer.
From what I can gather from the literature online is that the main differences between the FF5 and the FF5V is:
1. new composite shell
2. improved aerodynamics to reduce turbulence
3. Coolmax inner liner
4. comes with Pinlock fog-free system installed
Fit seems to be a little bit tighter than the FF5 L that I tried on in the store, but once it's on, it's very comfortable, similar to my old Shoei TZ-1.
I have a Scorpion EXO-1000 in L at home, but it feels a bit too narrow for me, the FF5v is perfect.
I have room in my luggage for an additional 1 helmet when I go back to the states in August, so if anyone is interested, I can get one for you. :-)
