Anyone using Powerlet's heated gear?

I just dropped $500 on a jacket and glove liners. The big selling point for me was the wireless controller. Thinking I can get a second lead and easily switch bikes.

I'm currently considering an ansai heated vest to wear under my normal jacket and for activities other than riding. They are battery powered but seem to have decent reviews.

Ryan, if you already dropped five bills on them, are you looking for decision support after the fact, or a reason to return them?

Ordered, just looking for feedback/suggestions of use if anyone has them. Im sure I will have more comments later but if something was out of the ordinary maybe someone else could confirm (like if the heating wasnt right, if maybe you still need a heated grip, or specifically using them on MV).

I have that already and 3 batteries but it just wouldnt hold up to truely freezing temps and the batteries wouldnt handle an all-day ride. Add to that the lack of glove liners as an option.

Its good for what it is but batteries just couldnt keep up. Finally going wired. Obviously Gerber is a great one but I figured Id take a punt on this for the wireless controller.

If you need all that gear to keep warm you need one of those car things. It's an enclosed space on four wheels with, usually, a gasoline powered engine. They are also very handy when it rains.

No need to thank me.

Carl, you should be all over riding in this season given where you are from. The riding season here is 12 months long.

Also, I am looking forward to being warm in the morning up to the mountain on days when it eventually gets 75. Everyone says its a very overpowered system for our weather so I can probably run it at 60w max and not have issues with the MVs alternator keeping up.
