one way to make the product better would be a sleeve in my clothing to accommodate....so, this product is already good.

After riding and freezing in cold weather, I purposely hunted down this helmet. When I bought it, I had just seen the review and thought it would meet my requirements.
Did it ever!
Not only does my neck not freeze any more but in the rain, this is a great helmet (it is missing a built-in shield wiper to get better).
As the weather is getting colder, I think I will change out the breath-box and look at the heated visor option.
The built-in cut-out for the headset feed through makes wired and bluetooth headsets so much easier to install in use.

Icon Patrol Waterproof Jacket Whether your ride includes chilly mountain passes or a soggy morning commute the Patrol Waterproof Jacket has you covered. Representing our most technically advanced all weather riding jacket, the Patrol will go the distance with unmatched safety, comfort and weather protection. To keep out the wind and rain, the abrasion resistant nylon chassis is fully seam-sealed and includes waterproof YKK zippers and a quick action magnetic storm flap. Mounted within the chassis is a full complement of Field Armor CE approved impact protectors. A full 3M reflective graphics package provides optimum nighttime visibility. Six intake and exhaust ports provide ample mechanical ventilation while the removable Thermolite insulated liner helps keep your core temperature regulated. Externally, we added enough pockets to carry everything you need for distance rides and included a removable external hydration pocket to hold a 1.5 liter waterpack (not included). Yellow colorway meet U.S. military PPE hi-visibility specifications Icon relaxed fit Waterproof seam sealed nylon textile chassis Removable Icon CE field armor impact protector elbow and shoulder Removable Icon dual-density foam back pad Heavyweight ballistic impact panels YKK waterproof zippers Magnetic storm flap closures 3M reflective panels Multiple intake and exhaust vents Removable hydration pocket (bladder not included) Twelve storage pockets Removable Thermolite insulated liner Upgradable to Stryker CE back protector

Riding on and between many government facilities is where the 'hi-viz' option works best with this jacket, by letting you get rid of the other vests and belts.
Fit, form, and function: the jacket fits true to size (maybe a little small) and after brief 'break-in', is now customized to my body frame allowing the built-in armor and added protection full functionality.
The venting has proven itself over a "Texas Summer" (and through the Colorado fire season of 2012) while the waterproofing allowed me to survive one of the worst rain soakings I have ridden through in quite a while (people inside automobiles were wet from this storm).
I have been saving my pennies so that I can get the matching over-pants but it adapts to my existing over-pants very well!
Many of my friends are jealous of this jacket, especially when they see me getting off my bike and not immeadiately running into a building for warmth.
If I had to do it again, I would have bought the jacket earlier and tossed my old leathers into the 'hand-me-down' pile for this comfort while riding, year-round!
