I haven't had the unit too long but I've managed to pair it up with my phone and figure out placement of the speakers directly next to my ear canal. First run, they were too far from the actual ear opening and I couldn't hear them once I was at highway speed.
Getting all the cords routed and hidden isn't too difficult but you'll likely have to remove at least a couple snaps on your cheek pads to hide and contain the cords. I didn't try to hide the battery inside of the padding and instead just attached it to the rear of the helmet. It seems secure and out of the way back there.
I really haven't used many of the functions on the unit besides streaming music during my 20 minute commute to work, but I eventually will get phone calls and will try to answer them. Feeling the specific buttons can be difficult in heavier gloves but not impossible. I just have to feel carefully to make sure I know what's there. I'm sure it will get easier the more I use the unit.
Looking at the control list, I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to keep quick start guide on the bike, indefinitely. I just won't use enough of the functions to remember what they all are, and when I tour with some friends with radios and link with them, I'm positive I'm going to struggle.
Anyway, it's a nice radio with good speakers for listening to music while I ride. Much improved over my headphones.
Time will tell how well everything else works.

This is a decent cool weather jacket and a very good deal. The shell is heavy and reinforced in the appropriate areas and has armor on shoulders, elbows, and back, but the back armor could stand to be upgraded. I'm planning on doing that. There doesn't appear to be a direct replacement that is available so I will likely have to trim some armor to fit.
The inner liner zips and snaps in without too much difficulty. The cuffs of the liner have hook and look closure as well as the shell sleeves. You can really get the pressure on your wrists too tight pretty easy.
I haven't had the jacket too long but have traveled in temps from 20 degrees F up to about 75 degrees F with the liner in the jacket and been comfortable for 16 mile (12 highway) commute. I also have the overpants Firstgear makes and they work well with the jacket.
The only real complaint I have with the jacket is that the neck is pretty narrow. I'm 5'10" 200 lbs 44" chest and the large jacket is tight on my neck. Everything else fits fine, but the adjustment for the neck isn't large enough for me.
Still, for the $175 or so I spent for the jacket, I think this is a really good deal. If this were going to be my touring outfit, I think I would have been more picky but for commuting, this is just fine.
