Make sure your half helmet straps don't cover any part of your ear. The push button for the intercom would push in if I wore the headset under the straps. So make sure the big knob will fit through the straps.
Sound was good. A little more volume would be better for over 70mph.
The plastic seems sturdy. I don't think they will break easy.
They are very easy to use. Large knob makes it easy to change volume. Push button intercom works well. Syncing is easy as well.
Like these a lot.

Powerlet Rapidfire Jacket Liner With Dual Wireless Controller Package Powerlet's RapidFIRe Heated Jacket Liner packaged with includes the Dual Wireless Remote Heat Controller. Controller receiver is pre-installed and Pre-synced for your convenience. Powerlet's new RapidFIRe Heated Jacket Liner with CNC (Carbon Nano Core) heating uses Far Infrared technology to provide fast, deep, soothing warmth. Now the warmest liner on the market at 105 watts! Built in stuff sack and no annoying heating wires of any kind! Stay Warm While Riding Powerlet's 105 watt RapidFIRe heated jacket liners pack down to a very small size to fit on the bike when not in use. Not only the warmest heated clothing available, but ProForm stretch panels also make them the most comfortable. We recommend using a temperature controller with the RapidFIRe 105 watt jacket liners. The RapidFIRe Advantage The most unique feature is the heating system that we incorporate into every liner. Using the latest in Carbon Nanotube technology, Powerlet's Carbon Nano Core panels heat quickly and evenly without the hot spots or long heat times other conventional wired garments require. Additionally, Powerlet is the ONLY manufacturer to offer a dual heat setting that permits you to switch the total consumption to not exceed 60 watts. This means those of you who have bikes or vehicles that do not have the electrical output capacity to power a traditional or competitors liner can rest assured that the RapidFIRe line will get powered without draining your battery and leaving you stranded. Additionally, Powerlet once again incorporated the ProForm stretch panels that provide three key advantages non-binding movement, maximum heat transfer and simple sizing. While all three are very important, maximum heat transfer is perhaps the most important. For maximum heat transfer the heated garments must be close to the body. A long sleeve T-Shirt is recommended under the heated liners. A heavier layer can be worm over the garment. Other heated clothing manufacturers provided many sizes to attempt to create a snug fit. This often leads to a more complicated purchase and the potential improper fit if your weight changes. RapidFIRe 105 Watt Jacket Liner Features Dual Heat 105 / 60 Watt convertibility by a simple cable disconnect Wind and water resistant Polyurethane coated nylon outer shell ProForm stretch panels provide comfort and simple standard sizing Ultra thin design provides comfort and small storage Comfortable heated Polartec fleece collar wicks moisture Zippered pockets manage power cables Handy built in stuff sack allows for storage on the vehicle Unique sleeve finishing reduces bulk around wrists Glove connectors are located at the ends of the sleeves Heated on the front, back arms and collar - Full heat coverage Quick heat time of 20 seconds or less on the jacket liners Designed For A Lifestyle Powerlet designs heated garments for people who rely on their heated clothing for both comfort and safety. Like our customers, we enjoy a lifestyle utilizing convenient modern electronics and wear our heated gear for commutes to work and trips across the country. Built For A Lifetime Powerlet seeks the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. All of our heated clothing products are developed and tested in the USA by people who ride regularly. Quality components and attention to detail ensure Powerlet products resist wear and corrosion to last a lifetime. All Powerlet RapidFIRe heated clothing carries a lifetime warranty on the electrics and a lifetime warranty on manufacturing defects.

I haven't had a chance to ride in cold weather yet, but it takes the chill off quickly on cool nights. As with any new toy I had wire installed the day it arrived. Set up of the controller was very easy. I put the jacket on and turned the controller to max. I could feel the heat immediately and I was sweating shortly after that.
Material is very nice. I like the feel of the collar. I am waiting for the glove liners to get in stock. Riding to Canada soon and expect to get use out of the items in the cooler evenings.

i had to return the helmet to get a smaller size. I have a Shoei Multitech in a large. I ordered this helmet in a large. I could almost spin it around on my head.
The large also had a long strap without a place to store the excess. The medium strap was barely long enough.
It seems to me made for an oval head.
I was hoping for Shoei quality and fit. It just doesn't quite make it.

Not a negative but use the waist size when considering size. I had to go with a size larger to accomodate a large waist size.
Wore the jacket with the liner down to 48 degrees where it was a little cool. In the 70s and 80s, it is great with the liner out. Lots of air flow and cool!
Armor is a great plus for the price point.
I do have to say the Rezilla was fantastic with the return.

Nice style. Had to return for a larger size. Wear a size 10 which was 43 on the size chart. Needed a 44.
Comfortable when you get the right size. No problem walking around in them right out of the box. Zippers are a little stiff, but they should get better.

The speakers don't have much bass. They sound a little tinny. When talking on the phone I have to open my face mask for people to understand me and it is still not very clear. I have to repeat myself a lot.
Easy to install, easy to link, works great except for the lack of bass.
