I had very high hopes for these boots. They fit nice, are not too stiff out of the box and break in well. What I don't like is the Velcro closure and adjustment mechanisms. I can just never get the boot tight enough in the ankle/calf area. At first I thought they might be too big, but they fit well in the foot pocket. I find it hard to believe these would stay on my feet in an accident. I am thinking of modifying the boot to add additional closure support around my ankles.

You can buy cheaper versions at your auto parts store. I ordered this one because I just don't want to deal with the cheap stuff when I am on the bike.
Powerlet products are typically industrial grade. Not this product.
It is cheaply made and will not hold a typical USB cable in place to charge. I have to wedge a piece of paper in the outlet to keep the contacts. Then at the least vibration it loses contact.
The $5 Walmart version is actually better.
Disappointed in powerlet on this one.
I expected much more for the price.

Powerlet RapidFIRe Heated Glove Liner - No Temperature Controller A temperature controller (not an on/off switch) is REQUIRED (and sold separately) for these glove liners. The liners have the potential to get hot enough to cause burns if they are used without a temperature controller. With over 18 watts of heat in each glove, cold hands are a thing of the past. Using Far Infrared technology, these ultra thin liners provide pleasing penetrating heat around the fingers as well as over the back of the hand. Must be used with a controller. Stay Warm While Riding Designed for commuting, touring and extending your riding season, Powerlet heated gloves will provide years of pleasure. Style, comfort, protection, and warmth. Perfect. Performance Guarantee Every heated glove goes through our multi-point inspection process before earning the privilege of carrying the Powerlet name. We inspect internal wiring, connectors, bench meter amperage and resistance testing before labeling and packaging our gloves. Details matter we believe in delivering you the highest quality product for your hard-earned money. Low Power Alternative Perfect for all motorcycles, even those without much excess electrical capacity to power appliances. Glove liners are rated at 36 watts per pair. Stay warm and stay safe while minimizing your electrical consumption.

I find heated gloves too bulky, after several hours of riding my hands cramp. I have heated grips which I use most of the time. On the really cold days these fit under most of my gloves. The connector integrated into the wrist is awesome and much easier to connect than two wires.
Only issue I had was thumbs are a tad short, but not a huge ideal.
Yes, I recommend this product.

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. Quality components and attention to detail ensure Powerlet products resist wear and corrosion to last a lifetime. All Powerlet RapidFIRe heated clothing carries a lifetime warranty on the electrics and a lifetime warranty on manufacturing defects.

I was upgrading from a competitors old design. This material is much more comfortable with less bulk and moves with you.
I thought the wireless controller was a bad idea, but decided to try it. I was wrong. Well made, put it anywhere you like. I placed mine on my clutch reservoir. Sweet!
Yes, I recommend this product.
