    If you look at the iron butt association web page, in their store they have WIDDER heated vests at very reasonable prices, don't think I could make one for the price their charging

    Made some for the wife and I way back in 1999, from the front seat heater grids out of a Junked Saab auto.

    Spent about $10 for both, and used a couple of extra jacket liners. Work great!

    I bought mine from these folks. Very inexpensive and the vest worked great for me. The thermostat has a cigarette type plug with a great feature - you unscrew a red plastic cap and what remains fits the RT's accessory socket. Happens the head office is near my daughters house, owner sold me the unit, and revealed the plug feature - after telling him I was off to buy an adapter...

    Can't imagine having a vest without an adjustable thermostat...

    So, build your own if you wish, but you can get good and economical stuff if you shop a bit.

    Something to do, sure is dark nowadays. Besides, I'm a rocket surgeon!
