I like Arai's face shield design. Yes, that puts me in the minority. The eyebrow vents channel air past the temples, the shield feels sturdy, and it's not really difficult to remove and swap shields if you watch the online videos to learn how.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Designed for the street without giving up the benefits of a racing helmet. The graphics on this helmet are inspired by famous racer Fast Freddie Spencer (pictured) Completely new helmet based on Corsair V shell Same wider eyeport opening as Corsair V Same face shield as the Corsair V Intermediate Oval Fit (same head shape as Quantum 2) Slightly different feel due to new cheek pads. New cheek pads come down further and cradle the head better. Made of a different density material which results in an extremely comfortable and quiet helmet Advanced ventilation Smaller, More Aerodynamic shell shape Hyper-Ridge circles lower shell to improve strength and aerodynamics Retractable chin spoiler Emergency Cheek Pad Removal system along with removable neck roll One piece bottom edge trim Race helmet for the street 5 unique size shells (XS, S, M/L, XL, XXL). Meets or exceeds SNELL 2010 and DOT specifications 2010 Model

The first thing you notice is that this helmet is beautiful (I have the red, white, blue version). The finish is superb, and the vent switches feel solid instead of flimsy.
The size charts say a medium is 57-58 cm and a large is 59-60. But what about people whose heads measure between 58 and 59 cm? My head measures 58.3 cm around and a size medium fits.
You hear people complain about the difficulty of changing Arai shields. The concerns are overblown. You can find videos on YouTube and I believe on RevZilla that show you how to switch shields. Watch them and you won't have a problem. Arai includes a DVD that supposedly instructs you how to switch shields, but the DVD didn't play on my Mac or the DVD player attached to the TV. Maybe it works on a Windows machine.
I have ridden through pouring rain. No leaks.
My only problem with the RX-Q is the noise level. It's noisier than I hoped and expected. I always wear earplugs and still it's noisy above 45mph. The air flow is excellent, though, and I assume the noise is associated with the venting. I live in South Florida, so ultimately, temperature control is more important than noise.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The fluorescent yellow Airglide 2 jacket can be seen from far away, and drivers seem to give it a lot of respect. In fact, one driver rolled down his window at a stoplight to tell me, "Nice jacket."
The Airglide 2 is well-made, with stout stitches that are where they're supposed to be. I hope I never test it in a crash, but it feels like it would hold up well in a crash at city traffic speeds.
There are little details that show that the Airglide 2 is well thought-out. The pockets and zips are exactly where you want them to be. The attachment points for he zip-in lining are at the right spots for comfort. I mean, if the hook-and-loop attachment tab had been above the wrist instead of below it, that would have been a minor irritation -- no big deal, but something that reduces satisfaction. There isn't anything on this jacket that makes me think, "I wish they'd done this detail differently."
The inner jacket is waterproof in the rain, and is a windbreaker in cool weather, and looks stylish when worn alone, without the outer jacket.
I live in South Florida. The Airglide 2 is comfortable in warm to hot weather. I have worn it down to around 60 degrees and it was comfortable. I don't think I would want to wear it below 40 degrees, even with the inner jacket.
Pros Thoughtful details, Visible, Great Value
Yes, I recommend this product.
