Hey JP-
I just got tho helmet today and was wondering the same thing. It does not appear that these ear pieces are designed to open up to add speakers. However, they are removable, so there my be the option to add different (audio) ear pieces. I will update if I figure it out.

Otherwise, the helmet is great for the money. Looks awesome in person and seems to fit very comfortably!

I run the local trails here in MN a few times a week and these have yet to let me down. They have great ankle support despite being a shoe (as opposed to high top/boot) and the traction has been terrific even on loose dirt. Sadly they are out of stock, but if they come back, don't hesitate to buy. From my experience they fit pretty true to size, perhaps SLIGHTLY narrow but not bad. Enjoy!

I got the black/lime in a LARGE. I'm 6'2" and about 220lbs. Fits SLIM, which is just the way I want it. But not too slim, can definitely still wear as a casual shirt, and easily as a base for skiing or anything outside. Wicks really well. Downsides? No issues with the fabric or stitching yet, but both feel a little sketchy. Also, I have long monkey arms and these sleeves are still longer than what I need. Overall, a good choice!

I bought the wrong size for anything active. I'm 6'2" and 220 pounds and the XL is too big by a LONG shot! I'm usually a 34" or 36" x 34" I do wear them all the time anyway for chillin at home and cruising town for errands. I may try them with some thicker Marmot Dri-Clime pants underneath for snowshoeing. That should eat up the extra space. Aside from my mistake in sizing, this pant is nothing short of an A+, don't hesistate on this one.

I love this jacket, same great cut as the Siphon Street hoodie...which I wear daily. This jacket is SHARP. Can look classy or can handle the bars, love the versatility. I haven't done anything active in this jacket yet, but its been awesome around town and I'll have it for some time! Wish I had gotten a Graphite one before they ran out of my size :(

BC, please keep making this!! Im 6'2", 220lbs and the XL fits great if you want a trim fit. I seriously wear mine almost everyday, just take it off to wash it. The fabric does pill, and thats really its only downside. Super comfy! Great articulation in the arms. Chest pocket is great for keys or a cell phone. I just may buy another before they are gone for good. Wish there was more BC.com stuff still coming out! Stoic is great, but not a big enough range yet!

Im 6'2", 220lbs and the XL fits great if you want a trim fit. A thin t-shirt or lightweight merino could fit underneath and make this great into probably the mid 40 degree temps. Awesome for casual office days, chilling at home and of course being out on hikes or yard work. Great articulation in the arms. Chest pocket is great for keys or a cell phone. I would buy another if I could. Wish there was more BC.com stuff still coming out! Stoic is great, but not a big enough range yet!

Hey S, the Mantra truly is a great ski. And while your son sounds like a great skier, I have a feeling at 120lbs he would have a very tough time flexing this ski enough to make it useful. I'd look for something a bit softer! Good luck!
