These boots ran pretty true to size; I'm a size 9 in regular shoes, and the 9s I got in the Stella boots fit me pretty well. I have a narrow foot and slim calf, so they are a bit looser on my foot than I'd prefer, but given how hard it has been for me to get a boot that wasn't too stiff to move in, I'm OK with the slight looseness. In colder weather I'll have room to wear warmer socks. For now in summer, I'm happy in thin cotton socks. I don't feel my feet are overheating in the boots, and the fastening system is secure and easy on/off, a feature I appreciate when I'm trying to strip off my sweltering gear after a ride.
They look pretty good off the bike too, so you don't need to pack extra shoes if you're going casual.

I swapped my clear visor for this grey tint one, partly because I wanted some glare protection but also for the UV protection. I've worn it in full sunlight and dusk so far, with no problems with visibility. It doesn't darken so much as cut glare, like polarizing sunglasses. I'm pretty sure I can wear it for night riding without losing visibility.

I had a Shoei helmet years ago when I first started riding and they were the first ones I considered when getting back into bikes. This RF-1100 is super-light, has great padding for comfort and has all the Shoei quality I expected.
The vents over the crown as well as at the front were really effective and I am comfortable wearing it for hours at a stretch. The super styling doesn't hurt either.
The visor has a vent setting so you can let just a bit of air in and it seals firmly when fully down. I've had no fogging at all with it.
I am planning on getting a tinted visor for the warmer months. The system for swapping out visors is really easy and quick, so I can swap the clear one back if the weather or light changes while I'm on the road.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've found that it's hard to get good riding gear for women, so I was really happy to see these Icon gloves. The idea is great, as is the quality and finish, but I would like to see a better fit for the finger guards. I got the first size based on the fit guide and found the small plastic guards on the fingers were actually painful in the way they fit against my hand, especially when I curled up my fingers. I got one size up and they feel better, but still press a bit hard on the knuckles on my smallest fingers. I don't have wide fingers, but they are long, and perhaps this is why the knuckle guards don't quite fit as they should, but I feel this could be easily fixed if the edges were made a bit more flexible.
Overall, I think they will wear well, and expect that they will wear in so as to be comfortable. I would suggest sizing up one size from what you think you should get based on your measurements.
Yes, I recommend this product.
