Aerostich Kanetsu AIRVANTAGE Electric Liner
- Product Review (submitted on October 29, 2010):
I have had my kanetsu jacket for about 2 months of which I have used it about 40 hours. During the first 10 hours of use the jacket was amazing highly insulating against the cold wind creeping into my suit, and warm as could be! Simply put, an amazing product!
after the initial 10 hours of use the air bladder started deflating, and loosing pressure. By the end of my 50 minute commute there would not be as much pressure against my back which means the heating elements were not keeping me as warm.
I contacted Aerostich and they replaced the stem valve (what you use to inflate the air bladder). GREAT, TIMELY AND RESPONSIVE.
by then I had worn the jacket for about 30+ hours. Soon after I got the jacket back, it developed the same problem. 1 week after that some of the wiring on the left sleeve stopped working. And this also seems to have affected the upper left back/left shoulder area. I am a little disillusioned with the product but I have no doubt that Aerostich's great customer service will handle this situation in a manner that leaves both parties happy... update to come soon
