SKU: 285-286-287

Availability: In stock

Product Description


A superior blend of ultra-compactible design and careful craftsmanship. Key technical features that make an Aerostich electric vest better: A slightly shorter, thinner heated collar that fits your neck right and slides under a jacket collar with less bunching. A longer trunk length in back and a shorter front to provide a more total heated area.

A more packable version of the original fleece electric vest. Like that model, this version is also a most reliable, comfortably warm, hard-wearing electrically heated vest.

You'll appreciate its warmth, ultra-compactness and draft-stopping efficiency the minute you slip it on. It's also the least restrictive to wear beneath a closely fitted jacket or riding suit. Two pockets: one for storing the power cord and one that the entire vest stuffs into, forming a neat, compact pillow. Includes: fused, lighted coil cord hookup and power switch. 45 watts / 3.3 amps (works with all BMW standard power outlets). Specify QuiConnect 2, SAE or BMW connectors.

WINDSTOPPER® fabric is 100% windproof and half as thick as TLTec Wind Blocker fleece. Black. S-XXL. Made in USA

Christian's Comment - Windstopper VestReview by Pete
Christian, although I do not currently own 1 of these, I really appreciated you review and comments regarding : " buying locally and made in the USA ". I do own several Aerostitch products and they are superb!! Right on!!!!!! (Posted on 11/11/11)
great product...use accordinglyReview by Christian
Owned for a couple months. Usual quality fit and finish of an Aero product. I wear a size 40L roadcrafter, vest is size large. I have learned that style of use will dictate heat transfer to torso of bi-ped while operating a motorcycle.
(background of rider: lightweight with minimal body fat and thin build = always need more layers than most) I started with vest as layer directly under my roadcrafter. Heat was noticable, but not really as warm as I would like / expected. For the times I really want the heat, I wear as a second layer directly over a light shirt. Then put one or two thin wool sweaters over the top, then pull on the roadcrafter. wow, now that really works. Clip switch to the storm flap of the chest pocket of roadcrafter for easy on / off with left hand.
Heats up quick and the windstoper effect is VERY noticable at higher speeds. I think of this as really adding a bit more heat than it actually supplies because it reduces the heat that is lost through the wind coming through the roadcrafter (which is more than I thought).
Combined with heated grips I have since ridden in 30 degree Oregon snow flurries for commute and fun rides of an hour of two. totally comfortable.
...and by the way REMEMBER that this is another product made in the USA by American hands right in the ground floor of the Aero building in Duluth. Buy local, be vocal. Thanks again Andy, don't change a thing. (Posted on 3/17/11)
Excellent vest, some wiring issuesReview by Eric
This vest ROCKS! I have had it for about four years. Vest works great, and is really all you need to stay warm under another layer. I used this vest almost daily for two years of commuting, and quite a bit the other two years. Unfortunately it seems to have reached end of functional life as I have now had it returned for electrical wire repairs a couple times, and it just keeps failing. I will definately be purchasing another, probably with full sleeves as it is worth every penny. (Posted on 3/4/11)

Simplifying Comfort (...a Better Power-cord)

Lighted power switch coil cord

We have been making this pretty neat coil cord power control for twenty years. I remember designing it to be an illuminated hi-low inline switch of such small dimension that it would not be a 'lump' in the middle of a compact coily power cord. We went round-and-round trying to find a switch which would allow a better functioning and packaging design. Something tactually, visually, and ergonomically lighter and cleaner.

And there still isn't anything as good in terms of simplicity and overall handy-ness. I wanted this cord switch to be so easy to use one could forgo a thermostat. They always seemed useless over-complexity...even the newer nice digital ones everyone uses now (just yesterday all were stupid power-hungry inefficient resistance rheostats). I'd used one several times but wanted something thoughtlessly simple, super-compact and field-reparable if ever needed. (This last consideration turned out irrelevant.)

Lighted power switch coil cord

It's just too easy to be riding along and without looking down move my left hand downward from the grip momentarily to find the cord lying across my left thigh and then by touch alone (finger or thumb) push or release the illuminated in-out button…then move my hand back to the left grip.

It's only one second, done without thinking, and there's no fumbling around. I can feel at a touch if the button is in high or low position to maintain temperature at a nice level all day long, with neither thought or effort. Just click-on and click-off as needed for comfort, and if there's ever question about power status a quick glance down shows the red pilot light glowing on or off through the button's cap. Even in daylight.

So today if I were for some reason forced to use some non-Aerostich electric garment, I'd still want this simple, intuitive and reliable coil cord and switch.
