Aerostich Kanetsu AIRVANTAGE Electric Vest
- Product Review (submitted on September 19, 2013):
- Bought this vest to cut down on the clothes load on a Seattle to Fairbanks and return trip this fall. Never owned heated gear before. This vest was a life saver!! I did not buy a thermostat for the vest and had to moderate the heating by more or less air in the vest and by switching the vest on and off. Have now purchased the thermostat. Our trip had poor weather, cold and rainy. We scraped frost on the bike in the AM and most of 3 weeks were in the rain some part of the day. The vest kept me toasty warm everywhere but the hands. I worried when buying it that I should have bought the coat rather than vest. Now having used it, I'm sure the coat would be nice but the vest did the majority of the work in the coldest temps we encountered. I fully recommend this article for function and quality. I suggest getting the thermostat as I now have but it's lack does not limit the use of the vest, only means you have more fussing to do with the on/off switch while riding.
