I had to get these 'cus they were out of mens smalls in similar gloves where I got them (gents, if you have to get these, I got a large. I generally wear smalls in icon for comparison).
These are amazingly comfy, they do have to be broken in a bit, but after about an hour of riding, the fit like.. a glove (hah).
I love that the knuckle protectors aren't attached at the back and can move freely with your hand. GREAT airflow! Not as good as the all-mesh kind gloves, but a heck of a lot better than full leathers.
My favorite part? The pinky finger does not have an extra half inch of glove hanging off!

This helmet fits me like a charm. It does have a very snug race fit, but I have a slender jaw line so, on me, its not overly tight. There is a whistle at about 60 in a more upright position, though that may be caused by the shield side plate things. Speaking of, I literally changed the shield (from clear to tinted) once. Took the side plates off VERY carefully, and one of the little locking pins broke off.... was kinda P.O.'d, but they're not the best made things ever.
For a helmet that doesn't seem to be made to be quiet, the noise isn't too bad except for that whistle.
Also, considering that I'm riding in 30-50 degree weather out here in montana right now, a chin guard like what they have on the Airframe would be really useful, might cut down on the noise a little too.
Other than that, the helmet is great, flows TONNES of air, and the rubatone is insanely durable.
I'm psyched for warmer weather, 'cus in this helmet, I really feel like the airflow will keep me cool.
