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. RapidFIRe 105 Watt Jacket Liner Features Dual Heat 105 / 60 Watt convertibility by a simple cable disconnect Wind and water resistant Polyurethane coated nylon outer shell 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 built in 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 Heated on the front, back arms and collar - Full heat coverage Quick heat time of 20 seconds or less on the jacket liners Designed For A Lifestyle 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.

Ever wake up and it is 20 degrees, but the high that day is going to be 50 and sunny? Want to ride in so you can enjoy the ride home but don't feel like freezing by the time you get there? So you get in your cage and roll on 4 wheels instead...well not anymore!
I paired this jacket with the Powerlet glove liners and plug straight into the DIN socket on my 1995 R1100R. I use the jacket liner on the 60W setting (as opposed to the 105W setting) and I haven't put the power past halfway (including a 15 degree morning) to stay toasty warm all the way in on my 40 minute commute at 80mph.
The dual wireless controller works flawlessly and controls the heat perfectly. You can dial in to exactly where you need the temperature to be...and the far infrared emits a steady heat with no discernible hotspots.
Yes, I recommend this product.

sizing is right, choose your normal shoe size with no worries. they are comfortable enough to wear all day in an office environment. arch support is lacking but that is to be expected as they are for riding, not hiking. there is no side zipper, so getting in and out of these requires a bit of effort...once they are on, they will stay firmly on. the lace cover is nice and makes for a tight look. bottom rubber is good and sticky, won't slide on pavement when touching down. the boots are lightweight, but since they are sealed they will keep your feet warm. i have used them on chilly mornings and 105+ degree afternoons and they perform about as expected for an enclosed boot.
