Gerbing 12V Lighted On/Off Switch
Must have item if you don't get the temp controller
If you decide to not pony up the 90$ for the temp controller this is a must have item if you don't want burned hands.
My suggestion is to go ahead and get the controller, as I will be before next season.
This item does conveniently plug inline which makes it easy to position for accessibility.

Cheap backup switch in case of failures.
This is an on/off switch. I carry it as backup in case my dual controller or PDU in the jacket liner fails. Actually the liner PDU did fail, so I used it to operate the gloves while the liner is being sent back under warranty. You can hook up your dual controller directly to your gloves and another article directly, but if that fails, I will still have on - off heat using the switch and a "Y" connector.

Does the job well
This switch works a treat, the vest gets pretty hot so the switch is very good and easy to use even with gloves

I bought this as a backup to the Powerlet remote controller. Tried it and works great. Well worth the investment especially when the batteries go out on your controller on chilly 36 deg.

This switch works well.
I bought this switch to use in making my own cord for an electric jacket liner. I didn't want the extra connections of just plugging the switch to the cord using the provided coaxal plugs. So I removed the plugs and wired the switch directly into the cord. The switch uses soldiered connnections so you need to be handy with a soldiering iron to do this. I like the results. The switch is rugged, looks great, and lights up to let you know it is on. The only negative is it takes some practice to learn to operate the switch with heavy gloves.

Great alternative to dual controller :-)
I bought this product to control the heat until I can afford to by the dual controller.

More positive than rotary controller
I like the switch has a light which makes it very easy to see that the power is on. It helps to remember to turn the unit off. Saves having a flat battery next morning.
