"I'm grateful that I only needed my full cold weather gear twice. Previous winters I'd wear it for weeks at a time.  Did not need to put plastic bags over my feet in my shoes to keep the sub-zero wind out."

"Not sure if this would work for you but earbuds with transparency mode might be an option. You can play music but still hear sounds around you. I have Jabra’s and use them at the gym but not for riding. I really like them. "

"The title asks what I look for in a Bluetooth Speaker, not what I think are the important features.  Answering the title; what I look for in a Bluetooth (cycling) Speaker is the OFF button."

What Do You Look For In A Bluetooth Speaker??

My old speaker fell off my bicycle and got run over by a minivan so I got myself a new Bose SoundLink. It's got great sound and a strap to secure it to my bicycle.  I used to be a headphones person a few years ago but now I listen to music instead of podcasts so I really enjoy the speaker.See More

"The last two times I participated in Critical Mass there were riders who sought out confrontation with cars.  It wasn't a great experience.   I'll save Critical Mass for the warmer months when the crowds are larger."
