Aerostich Kanetsu TLTec Wind Blocker Electric Vest
- Product Review (submitted on February 22, 2007):
- This vest is a good buy and an absolute necessity if you ride in the cold. I ride in the Seattle area year-round and usually don't need anything more than this vest under my Roadcrafter suit during the cold months. Installation is super simple. The construction is top-notch and the fit is pretty good... it seems to bunch up a little at the shoulders under my suit, but it doesn't affect the vest's comfort or heating capability. If you've never tried an electric vest, you owe it to yourself to get one of these! It really works to keep your torso/core nice and toasty. One of these and some heated grips are all you need to seriously extend your riding season. The only complaint I have is the inner heating wires seem to be a little fragile. I've owned three of these vests and two have had shorts or opens in the heating elements over time. The good news is that Aerostich will repair or replace any defective items for two years after purchase...and they have been great at this in my experience. If you have been thinking about getting one, don't delay any longer... you'll wonder how you ever rode without one.
