Powerlet Rapidfire Proform Heated Jacket Liner Our new rapidFIRe ProForm Heated Jacket Liner with CNC (Carbon Nano Core) heating uses Far Infrared technology to provide fast, deep, soothing warmth. Now the warmest liner on the market at 105 watts! Built in stuff sack and no annoying heating wires of any kind! Stay Warm While Riding Powerlet's 100 watt ProForm heated jacket liners and 60 watt ProForm vests pack down to a very small size to fit on the bike when not in use. Not only the warmest heated clothing available, but our ProForm stretch panels also make them the most comfortable. We recommend using a temperature controller with the ProForm 100 watt jacket liners. The ProForm Advantage ProForm stretch panels provide three key advantages non-binding movement, maximum heat transfer and simple sizing. While all three are very important, maximum heat transfer is perhaps the most important. For maximum heat transfer the heated garments must be close to the body. A long sleeve T-Shirt is recommended under the heated vests and heat jacket liners. A heavier layer can be worn over the garment. Other heated clothing manufacturers provided many sizes to attempt to create a snug fit. This often leads to a more complicated purchase and the potential improper fit if your weight changes. ProForm 100 Watt Jacket Liner Features ProForm stretch panels provide comfort and simple standard sizing. Ultra thin design provides comfort and small storage. Comfortable heated Polartec fleece collar wicks moisture. Zippered pockets manage power cables. Handy stuff sack allows for storage on the vehicle. Unique sleeve finishing reduces bulk around wrists. Glove connectors are located at the ends of the sleeves. Ordering Heated Clothing Three parts are required for heated clothing the power outlet on the vehicle, the temperature controller and the heated garment. Simply put, the temperature controller and cables connect the garment to the power outlet. Powerlet designs heated garments for people who rely on their heated clothing for both comfort and safety. Like our customers, we enjoy a lifestyle utilizing convenient modern electronics and wear our heated gear for commutes to work and trips across the country. Built For A Lifetime Powerlet seeks the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. All of our heated clothing products are developed and tested in the USA by people who ride regularly. Quality components and attention to detail ensure Powerlet products resist wear and corrosion to last a lifetime. All Powerlet ProForm heated clothing carries a lifetime warranty on the electrics and a lifetime warranty on manufacturing defects.

I love is jacket so far. It fits a bit tight around the body but I assume this is to keep air from going between you and the jacket. The arms are long enough with stretch fabric for comfort. Collar is great up or down depending on your needs.
Great temperature control with the Powerlet wireless controller.

Powerlet Single Wireless Temperature Controller The ultimate in convenience! Control your heated clothing without bothersome wiring. Small, waterproof receiver stays inside garment. Controller can be mounted anywhere. Works will all brands of heated clothing. Stay Warm While Riding Powerlet's Performance line of temperature controllers are designed to be fault tolerant. These controllers will not fail in wet weather. Being fully protected against reverse polarity, overload and short circuits, Powerlet Performance(tm) Temperature Controllers are designed to perform under all conditions. Industry Leading Warmth Powerlet Performance(tm) Temperature Controllers provide industry leading warmth in extreme cold conditions. A full range of heat is achieved by designing a PC Board with minimal power loss. Don't Get Left Out In The Cold Powering your heated clothing from the vehicle using a quality Powerlet socket kit there is no need to recharge batteries and you will never be left riding in the cold. One Powerlet socket kit can power all of your appliances including heated clothing, GPS, cell phones (with a convenient PAC adapter), tire inflators, etc. Keep in mind you can also maintain/charge your vehicle battery using the same Powerlet socket that is powering your heated gear. Comfort Control We recommend using a temperature controller with all Powerlet ProForm heated jacket liners to achieve maximum comfort. Running the liner directly connected to the bike will be too warm in all but the most extreme cold conditions. Also this controller will limit the power drawn from the bike allowing the liner to be used on both large and small bikes.

When I received my wireless controller it wasn't working, but after buying a battery for it and installing it, I was able to run the pairing setup and the controller works well. I'm able to keep the controller in my pant leg pocket and adjust on the fly or use the provided Velcro two sided tape and fasten the controller to something on my bike. Controller works well and adjustment makes a difference in the temperature of my jacket.

I bought this BMW classified Powerlet for my Ducati as I couldn't find a list for Ducati Multistrada. This adapter works and has a nice long cord to reach for the passenger outlet. The only problem was that when trying to plug into the driver Powerlet socket this BMW adapter rubs against the Multistrada center-stand lift handle. For this reason I found that there was a 90 degree angled Powerlet plug and am now using that for driver side outlet.
