To mount it to a bike it must be hardwired. It comes with two cradles, but only the cradle with the wires has the holes for a Ram mounting ball.
This is a fatal oversight as I want to power it with USB wire to cigarette lighter so that I can move it to my other bike.

Good airflow, but inside pockets block air at torso. Will consider taking those out as I don't need them.
Haven't tried it in cool weather as I bought it for summer riding. The hot spot is the back where the back padding blocks the airflow. Other than that, good to around 85 degrees.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Shark Evoline 3 ST Helmet - Solids Sharks masterpiece continues on its evolution. Never has a helmet given you such options between street/road riding, open or full face. Improvements to the Series 3 include Easier manipulation of the chinbar thanks to the Auto-Up system. The unique motion of the Evoline remains unchanged and has become even more natural with the Series3. The Auto-Up system has been simplified - chinbar and main shield are now united in a single movement. Fabrics, finish and style. The interior of the Evoline Series 3 has been totally redesigned and is softer, better and more comfortable. Brand new ventilation design fore and aft. Overall lower weight has been decreased by approximately 200 grams. Features Lexan Polycarbonate shell Shark Easy Fit system for comfortable use with glasses Sharktooth ready Integrated drop down sun shield Removable and washable CoolMax liner ECE 2205 approved with chinbar in both open and closed position ECE 2205 and DOT approved

I can't understand the high ratings in airflow unless they are measuring it with the chinbar flipped up, which is meaningless. All the tiny top vent does is rattle when opened and I feel no decernable airflow from the chin vent. There is some airflow from below chin opening, but all helmets have that.
Chinbar flip does work well. Sun visor feature is easy to deploy, but doesn't come low enough for comfort. It's not at all like wearing sunglasses which I still prefer.
I recommend it solely based on the fact that it can be ridden with chinbar in up position.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Icon Device Textile Over Pants Striking a delicate balance between style, fit and function is no easy task for the modern textile riding pant. The Device pant manages to walk this delicate line while succeeding in every category. A minimalist design speaks of a low-key style perfectly at home on any motorcycle. The relaxed pattern, dual waist adjusters, and ratchet closure fly provide an excellent riding fit. Finally, the textile chassis and full-length inseam zippers combine for both durability and easy on-off. The Device textile pant, the everyman riding pant. These pants are sized to fit as overpants. If you wear a size 34 pant - buy a size 34 Device Pant if you intend to wear them over your jeans. If you plan on running commando - buy a size 32. Features ICON Overpant fit pattern Durable textile chassis Removable / adjustable CE impact protectors Adjustable waist straps Ratchet waist closure Zippered side pockets for secure storage Inseam zippers for easy on /off

I took these pants out on a 4 hour ride and they did just what I wanted. It was about 50 degrees and I wore them over blue jeans. I'm sure they would be comfortable down to 40's or below. They have a high crotch that I was a little worried about when I tried them on. No problem on the bike or off.
The long zippers inside of each leg made them easy to take off and on. If I had one suggestion for improvement it would be for the legs to be a little less baggy, but it was not noticable when riding. Also wish they were waterproof. Haven't tested them, but they don't claim to be waterproof so...
I'm a 33 waist and ordered a 32. As the fit low, it was perfect.
Yes, I recommend this product.
