Don't waste your money

Comments about Mobile Warming Classic Softshell Heated Vest:
The first vest that I ordered did not work at all. The battery/controller charged up, but no heat was produced. Bike Bandit's customer service exchanged the vest, but acted as if I was getting over on them. On the plus side this vest is well made and comes in tall sizing. And yes, this vest should have the ability to provide extra warmth. Bear in mind that the vest has to actually touch your chest for the warmth from the heating coils to be felt. If you are a little pear shaped, forget about it. When it works, it makes long rides in 50 degree temperatures very pleasant. However, it rarely works...at all. I bought two extra batteries to be certain of having enough warmth for colder weather motorcycle rides. The batteries can not be discharged below 25% without sustaining permanent damage(according to the provided instructions), yet the vest and battery pack are layered underneath my motorcycle jacket making it impossible to see battery strength without taking off my jacket. Dumb design! Even the two brand new batteries (showing full charge) often fail to turn on. The lights blink and then turn off again resulting in no heat. This is a great idea, poorly executed. Save your money until the technology becomes reliable.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I used the heated vest while staying outside all day walking in the woods. You can quickly feel the heat from the vest when it is on the highest setting. When used on a lower setting to extend the battery life you can still feel the warmth. I am sure it will keep me warm while driving motorcycle on cold mornings or cold nights since I work 3rd shift and do a lot of night driving. Using the heated vest under my motorcycle jacket will help you stay warm and drive comfortably in cold weather or foul weather.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
