I bought the medium size with vent. I'm 6'2" tall and it is almost too tall to look over, even with a Mustang touring seat which is taller than the original seat. When I say "almost" too tall, I mean if I slouch down or am looking at the road close in front of the bike, then I'm looking through it. I got as tall as I could get and still look over it to provide better wind protection for 2-up touring with my wife who is also tall for a woman. I would get the same size again for this purpose, however for solo riding or if I was only using the original seat, it would be to tall for me as I don't like having to look through a windshield.
As for the vent, I would probably get it again. I don't notice any difference in buffeting with it open or closed, but then I don't have any buffeting anyway with the height and re curve shape sending the air stream up and over my head. What I like about the vent is I can get noticeably more air to my head and face with it open which is nice if it's very hot out.
My only issue with this windshield is that with it the bolts keep loosening up and then it squeaks and rattles until I re-tighten it up. Never had this happen with the original or with my first WindVest shield. I think I'll try adding blue Locktite next time I have to tighten them again.
I loved the WindVest shield by the way, that is until I hit a hawk and it broke it into pieces. The Clearview is much better for touring especialy 2-up than the WindVest was, at least for me and my wife.
