Very nice product.
I chose this over the 12 volt jacket liner because of the price difference also I wanted to use it for work and was afraid of ruining the cuffs (I have a dirty job). I purchased the fleece model first and exchanged it for this one because it was too small and after seeing the fleece realized it would get dirty far too easy, don't use Revzilla's size chart go to Gerbings web site, the 7v sizing is different than the 12v.
This is an excellent product, I have not used it on the bike yet due to the snow outside but have been using it every day for work. It puts out plenty of nice steady heat and the collar heating element is my new best friend when its bellow zero. The battery lasts for a lot longer than I expected and the vest puts out a lot more heat than I thought was possible with such a small battery. I find that I leave it on low most of the time, I dress for the weather and the heat stays trapped in the layers.
I would have given this 5 stars except for two issues, not complaints just items I would change. The zippers seem kind of flimsy, with a 3 year warranty on the garment this is not a big concern. It is a very high quality product otherwise. Also the placement of the battery, I would have placed it in a breast pocket, a more protected spot with easier access. these are minor issues and altogether I am very happy with this purchase. I can see this making my 30 mile commute come spring a great deal more comfortable.

Joseph D:Its designed for casual wear, but I bought it for use on the bike. Because its battery operated you can wear it anywhere. I didn't want to mess with wires and can use it off the bike.Jan 25, 2014
