I've had a the HBC100 for a few weeks now and have to admit that I don't know how I went for longer rides on weekends without it. When it's not used as a BT headset to answer calls (with relatively solid clarity... most of the time, people can't tell it's a headset IN a helmet ON a motorcycle GOING 80, but some people have said reported a speakerphone-esque quality on the other side), I use it more frequently to connect to Pandora or Spotify on the iphone in my jacket pocket. How's the music sound quality? Decent, but that's a good thing. I imagine that if it was too good, I would have it at a level that could be less than safe. For use as part of an intercom system however, it shines. No complaints whatsoever.
Ease of install? both hardware and software (pairing) is super easy.
Value? It could be much much better. It's pricey for a unit that has incredibly hard buttons to find using gloves and then to press them to recognize input. That said, it's better than any other BT helmet headset I've tried to date and losing the boom isn't anything to shake a finger at.
Overall, it's a solid product.

Great bag at doing what it's supposed to: 1. carry stuff, 2. provide easy access to things like change/sunglasses/hydration pack/extras, 3. be portable off the bike, 4. be durable, and 5. hold on for dear life.
It really is great. It isn't the most modern or fashionable or lightest bag out there, but it does its job well (I've had it completely filled with a laptop, one change of clothes, and random stuff in the side pockets - going highway speeds - and arrived at my destination with not even an inch of shift). I think the other reviewers do a great job with the features so I won't go into that, but I did want to mention: despite the non-scratch high-tack rubbery material on the tank contact space, it does still seem to take some wear off my tank. I noticed it a fews rides after I had washed and waxed the bike. But this is easily remedied by just continuing to take care of your ride with a little TLC. I definitely recommend it if you need a tank bag.
FYI - my FasTrak pass fits and registers perfectly from the sunglass pocket at the forward end of the bag.

Icon Reign Waterproof Boots One more product to walk out of our foul-weather development center. The Reign boot's easy access and low profile design make it an excellent choice for the daily commute or long distance travel. Rugged waterproof YKK zippers make entry and exit a snap (actually a zip). The waterproof and breathable interior mean your feet stay cool and dry even when it's neither cool nor dry outside. Protection comes by the way of durable leather and a ballistic nylon upper mated with injection molded shin and ankle plates. The lowers feature an axialmetric steel shank along with slip-resistant high friction outsoles. Even with all of these features, we still managed to make them so lightweight and comfortable you may just want to wear them year 'round. Features Durable leather and ballistic nylon upper 100 waterproof seam sealed construction Waterproof and breathable inner lining Injection molded shin and ankle plates Rubber shift interface ribs High friction Icon outsoles Axialmetric steel shank Footpeg interface arch YKK waterproof zippers

The ICON reigns are great waterproof boots for when you need to keep your feet both safe and dry. That said, the only drawback of these boots are in that they're a little less low profile, vent/airflow-absent, and do take a little getting used to for the new-stiffness and weight. If what you need is a set of boots for commuting or for riding in conditions similar to Seattle or Portland, OR, then it's a no brainer. As usual, Revzilla rocks.
