heated vest/jacket liners
I'm thinking about getting a heated vest to help on those cold mornings around here. I would prefer to get one with sleeves so that I could use it in place of the liner in my First Gear jacket.
What I would like is some input on the available brands. I have looked at the Gerbings and the Widder, I have not found any others so far that have sleeves.
What type are you using and how do you like it? What type of control is best?:confused:
I got the BMW electric vest
I never ride below 40 deg. It's difficult on a naked bike. That said the BMW electric vest does me just fine with my 'stich Roadcrafter. It's just enough to keep the core warm when I start early or ride after dark. It's cheap, there are plenty of used one's being sold by the Gerbing folks and you don't need a controller.
I admit the Gerbing is better and has all kinds of options for those really cold rides. But, the BMW electric vest is a good inexpensive starter vest. I think the Widder is comparable.
