Winter clothing
« on: 17 November, 2018, 05:06:56 PM »
I'm not normally a year round rider now that bikes are more of a hobby, but enjoyed a ride today but was not overly warm even though it wasn't particularly cold.

I have a Scott textile jacket and trousers, but the jackets liner isn't that long, and the jacket is probably not the thickest or windproof, as my tummy and kidney area was slightly cool, even with a base layer, t-shirt and thin top.

Are there any other gear that's nice and toasty without breaking the bank?

Mate, Ive got a Top of the range Rukka suit, but I still supplement it with a Keis heated waistcoat, not cheap in itself, about 150 but youve then got 3 heat levels, and the top red setting is too hot for anything this side of the Arctic, you can get full jackets but I find them a bit bulky, the waistcoat keeps your core warm which then helps all the other bits stay warm too

Seems the Keis X10 waistcoat is about 104, not sure if that's the same spec as yours, but probably good enough for my bimbles

At that price its probably better/cheaper than buying another jacket

If your gear is waterproof then look into a heated Jacket,
I have a fairly cheap EXO, it's basically a heated waistcoat with detachable sleeves, it's wired direct to the battery there are no heat setting but a thermostat thingy and a battery pack are available,
Jacket around 80 and thermo 40ish,
it's supposed to be a universal jacket also for runners and walkers hence the battery pack.

Ah, yeah not as expensive as I thought, mine is the V501, about 130, but I got 10% off too

Hmmm, the standard power socket could well come in handy.

I guess they either come with the fitting for this, or you can buy an adpater

I wouldn't run it from that, could be close to the max amps, and no, you only get the battery hook up as standard

Do you fit a lead direct to the battery, bit like an optimate lead, and exit at a convenient position?
