Powerlet Rapidfire Jacket Liner With Dual Wireless Controller Package Powerlet's RapidFIRe Heated Jacket Liner packaged with includes the Dual Wireless Remote Heat Controller. Controller receiver is pre-installed and Pre-synced for your convenience. Powerlet's new RapidFIRe 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 105 watt RapidFIRe heated jacket liners pack down to a very small size to fit on the bike when not in use. Not only the warmest heated clothing available, but ProForm stretch panels also make them the most comfortable. We recommend using a temperature controller with the RapidFIRe 105 watt jacket liners. The RapidFIRe Advantage The most unique feature is the heating system that we incorporate into every liner. Using the latest in Carbon Nanotube technology, Powerlet's Carbon Nano Core panels heat quickly and evenly without the hot spots or long heat times other conventional wired garments require. Additionally, Powerlet is the ONLY manufacturer to offer a dual heat setting that permits you to switch the total consumption to not exceed 60 watts. This means those of you who have bikes or vehicles that do not have the electrical output capacity to power a traditional or competitors liner can rest assured that the RapidFIRe line will get powered without draining your battery and leaving you stranded. Additionally, Powerlet once again incorporated the ProForm stretch panels that 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 liners. A heavier layer can be worm 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.

Got this jacket liner with the dual remote controller and a pair of RapidFIRe glove liners for Christmas. The size chart seems bang on, although it is a little snug it is not too small. The construction seems good so far. Set up is a breeze with colour coded cables, red to red yellow to yellow; but I did find the glossy brochure style instructions a little hard to read.
The glove cords are easy to get at inside small zippered pockets in the sleeves. The only thing I find wanting in the jacket is maybe some slash pockets in the front so you could wear it on its own off the bike.
One neat feature is that on the right side there is a cord which can be unplugged or plugged in to switch between 105 watt and 60 watt operation. A nice power conservation option. I've tried both at highway speeds in 5c weather and found the 60watt capable of keeping me warm, it just required a higher setting on the dial.
As for power settings, using the 105 watt option I found keeping the jacket just about 1/3 power was nice and the gloves at just under 1/2 power. At 60 watt I had to bump the jacket up over 1/2. Both at highway speeds, in the city and stop and go I found these settings to be a little toasty...
One small thing is that I found the included Velcro strips for the remote to be useless. The glue was not very strong and the strip so narrow that the remote would wobble when using it making it a little harder to use. However this was easily fixed with my own cut to size industrial Velcro. I mounted the remote under my left break reservoir and looped the lanyard around the bar as backup.
Overall I'm very happy with this set up. It gets hot fast and can get up to very hot temps.
