Default Heavy Duty in-line volume controller and Mic for Helmet Audio?

Fed up with the crap quality of audio in my last couple helmets(one Bluetooth one wired) I sewed in my own low profile speakers in my Smith helmet's ear pads and they work great.

My problem is finding a in-line 3.5 mic+controller(volume\mute\skip) that will last more than a month of mountain abuse, say what you want but when I'm on call for work and trying to hook up with riding buddies I really enjoy having music and phone call access while out riding.

I was using the one from SkullCandy pictured here



Broke in 1\2 a season and the volume and mute\skip\answer buttons are difficult to control with gloves on beyond those short comings it worked great.

Anyone aware of anything out there available that will solve my above issues and last more than a few months?

Thanks
