This spring I purchased a powerlet jacket liner, which has be a great addition to my gear. My hands were still cold, even with grip heaters and warm gloves, so this fall I purchased the powerlet glove liner. They plug easily into the powerlet jacket and operate off the same two knob remote control as the jacket (red for the jacket, yellow for the gloves). Riding in Michigan, the ability to ride in cold weather is a nice option - these liners work amazingly well. The material does catch on velcro, so be careful where you put them.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've had this jacket for over a year, and have ridden in a range of weather. Recently in a heavy rain, I felt the small trickles start. After a couple hours, I was soaking wet - not damp but wring your shirt out wet - with everything zipped up.
Great jacket - but recently added some Frogg Toggs raingear for prolonged rain, plus waterproofed the tourmaster saber 3 with a spray.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I reviewed everything I could find about ways to connect to my phone, gps, and other riders. Based on the reviews, and the Revzilla video I picked the Sena SMH10-11 for my new Schuberth C3 Pro helmet. I tried a bunch of helmets to find the most comfortable, most quiet one - then wanted a good, clear bluetooth connection.
The Sena unit was easily to pair and operate - I tried it before putting it on the helmet. I used the adhesive bracket as Schuberth has a sunshield control in the way of the clamp version. The separate boom mic was excellent as I could adjust it to perfectly fit - no problem. Sound is great - far better than I expected. I wear ear plugs for any faster rides, and could still hear the music well. The jog dial is pretty simple, and easy with both winter and summer gloves. The unit feels very solid - but time will tell on durability.
Thanks to RevZilla for steering me away from the standard SMH10 - as the attached boom mic would not have worked nearly as well given where the unit has to be attached on this helmet.
Oh, and no noticeable wind noise due to the exterior object on my helmet at 80mph. The Schuberth bluetooth system didn't have stellar reviews, and is dedicated to this helmet - while the Sena can be moved to others as desired.

Schuberth C3 Pro Helmet The Schuberth C3 Pro has been redesigned to improve on the original C3, which was already one of the quietest and most technologically advanced helmets ever produced. The rear spoiler, which has been further optimized in extensive wind tunnel testing, turns the C3 Pro into a real sport helmet which also demonstrates outstanding aerodynamic properties at high speeds in excess of 100 mph. With its enhanced aeroacoustics of 82 dB(A) at 100 km/h the C3 Pro is one of the quietest helmets in the world. The C3 Pro also incorporates two integrated antennas for increased ranges and better FM radio reception prepared for the fully integrated communication unit SRC-System. The inner lining, made of carefully selected materials such as COOLMAX, Interpower and Thermocool, has been extensively re-shaped and redesigned and sets new benchmarks with respect to comfort. New or Updated Features Redesigned shell is more aerodynamic and provided more downforce at higher speeds with little buffeting Interior helmet sound levels have been reduced to 82 dB(A) at 60 mph C3 84 dB(A) Interior liner has been completely redesigned with fewer seams and a more universal, interior fit Improved EPS with integrated antenna for SRC-System which improves radio and Bluetooth range New micro-lock ratchet chin strap Larger reflective panels on neckroll Improved faceshield ratcheting Integrated sun visor has a new look and improved quality Acoustics A quiet helmet means active safety for the motorcyclist. This permits the rider to concentrate on riding particularly at higher speeds. Many hours in the Schuberth acoustics wind tunnel have ensured that the C3 Pro is quiet. The comprehensive acoustics package with optimized helmet shell, wind deflector and ergonomic shape of the neck padding make the C3 Pro at 82 dBA one of the quietest helmets of all. Acoustics package makes helmet quiet Installation of a wind deflector enables the aeroacoustics and consequently the noise level to be improved still further. Only 82dB(A) at 100 km per hour (with naked bikes) Outer Shell The outer shell of the Schuberth C3 Pro is offered in two helmet shell sizes and combines an aerodynamically optimal shape with excellent protection. It is manufactured using Schuberth's typical compression molding process and thus permits great stability and a low weight. Shell material S.T.R.O.N.G. fiber Helmet shell technology from SCHUBERTH permits low weight Glass fiber with a special resin added is compressed in a vacuum at high pressure to form a helmet shell which is exceptionally sturdy Perfected aerodynamics for higher speeds Upward lift 0! Directionally stable No oscillatory tendency No buffeting Spoiler integrated into the helmet shell SRC-System Ready The C3 Pro is by default equipped to accommodate the SCHUBERTH SRC-System C3 Pro (sold separately). To guarantee ideal radio reception for you, the C3 Pro is already equipped with two integrated antennas to boost reception and a Bluetooth connection. Optimum reception at all times Bluetooth antenna for wireless mobile, GPS and intercom connections to other SRC-System owners FM and Bluetooth antennas integrated into the helmet for optimum reception EPS The helmet shell of special EPS foam is modular in design to ensure optimal shock absorption. This complex segmentation guarantees enhanced force absorption and distribution and maximum safety. Made of specially optimized EPS foam Complex multizone foaming allows optimal shock absorption Inner Lining A special inner lining of the C3 Pro which was developed according to the innovative Comfort Fit concept ensures that the helmet fits comfortably and securely in all situations. The combination of carefully selected COOLMAX and Thermocool materials and the additional use of Interpower coatings also make the inner lining a highly-effective moisture removal and cooling system. COOLMAX pad system, completely removable and washable (hand wash, 30C) Optimized fit Variable for effective ventilation Adjustable for summer/winter Allergen-free Antibacterial Removable comfort cheek pads and head band pads Ventilation The C3 Pro is equipped with a further development of the proven C3 ventilation system. Thanks to the new design of the ventilation elements, the supply of fresh air is increased by up to 60. The combination of multipath channels in the EPS foam shell and the head/chin/mouth ventilation ensure that fresh air is distributed effectively over the entire head area. A.R.O.S. and Neck Strap The Anti-Roll-Off System (A.R.O.S.) especially developed by SCHUBERTH is provided as a safety feature in every SCHUBERTH motorcycle helmet. It ensures that the chinstrap is closed and correctly adjusted The helmet cannot pivot off the head from behind The risk of contact between the chin section of the helmet and the chin or throat of the rider is minimized due to the small angle of tilt The consequences of the helmet coming into contact with the chest as the result of an accident are reduced Precise setting of the chinstrap length through adjustment on both sides Micro-lock ratchet lock Face Shield The EasyChange visor mechanism makes changing visors extremely quick and simple without use of tools. City position offers maximum ventilation while traveling at slower speeds Pinlock visor prevents shield from fogging DOT and ECE certified

I tried on various helmets - looking for the most comfortable fit. After trying various Arai (comfy but narrow field of view), Shoei (a bit heavy, D ring, nice fit with RF1100/Quest, but not the neotec), then I tried a Schuberth C3 Pro. Very comfortable - better for me than the C3 - tried them side by side. Materials feel very good - smooth, appear good quality. The shield is extremely clear and the drop down sun shield works easily and very well. the pinlock is included, but isn't as clear - bugs me enough I probably won't use it much. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Very comfortable immediately and better every day. I can put my d ring chin strap on while wearing these gloves - the palm leather is sweet!
Rode in 90f, on bike thermometer at 100 f, and my hands were warm but not nuclear.
Both compartments fit great, and I will happily wear these a full three seasons in michigan.
The only style issue is the shiny accent trim on the knuckle protectors which I'd prefer was flat or absent.
I really thought hard about the price, but feel they are worth it.
