Thanks for the link. The only thing I don't like about this is that it's a full jacket, not a liner. My plan was to replace the inner liner of my motorcycle jacket (with all the protective pads) with a heated liner when it gets too cold for the non-heated liner. But that looks like a great jacket for folks shoveling their driveways :grin2:If you want a good battery powered jacket buy a real one from https://www.milwaukeetool.com/Products/Work-Gear/Heated-Gear
Ace hardware stores carry them so they are available all over the country in case you ever need to replace a battery while traveling, I don’t own one but have several friends that do and they seem to be very happy with them.
Your point that this needs to be kept in perspective is certainly something that has to be considered. Those of us up north should not forget that.@Sparky57 , you may exactly right. No doubt a corded anything is going to run longer and ultimately stronger as you say.
However, I recall some of the same arguments about cordless drills, then sawzalls, then circular saws. Today, unless you’re a professional, it’s unlikely you’d buy a corded tool for just about anything. I still have my corded tools from before battery tools were good enough. Battery power has come a long way in the last five years.
As I said, I’m in Houston. I’m an amateur when it comes to cold compared to cycledude and the many others from other northern locales (“professionals” in my book). I wouldn’t expect a battery power heated vest to perform the same as a corded one, but I don’t need that power.
But input from cycledude and the others from up north is appreciated and considered.
