Widder electric vest

I picked up a Widder vest with BMW controller. Rode this weekend at 38 F.; was comfortable with the vest between setting 2 and 3 (it goes to 7). Very good quality and workmanship and it's (mostly) made in the US. Not too many garments around that can make that claim. The controller plugs directly into the aux port on my RT.
I got mine at Cyclebitz on Ebay (best price I could find); here's a link to their store:

I've had one for 8 years, with the arm chaps and gloves. It was always too hot till I figured out not to wear my jacket liner with it on our annual New Years Ride.

That's good to hear - so I can expect this to last a while...

Love my "Widders"... thinking of the arm chaps but actually hasn't seemed to trouble me even down to freezing as long as my core and leg temps stay up.. and the seat and grips are firing.

I have the arm chaps and gloves as well. You won't know how much you love 'em until you've worn 'em!
