Mobile Warming Longmen Shirt
I can't say enough about this shirt. I usually wear a large, but had to swap for a xlarge, which allows me to wear a tshirt underneath. Customer Service was fantastic helping me with the return and ordering a new one. Definitely need to order a spare battery if running it on high. I have had it last up to 10 hours on low. Best Deal Out there.

Nice addition for cold weather riding
Bought this for an October trip through nc, wa, wv, and the south. Lots of riding in the 50s and mornings in the 40s. Did a good job of adding a little warmth and still use it regularly on local winter trips. Biggest benefit is not being connected to the bike. On and off without messing with wires. Digging the battery in and out of the small storage pocket to adjust the setting is a pain, but it is held securely and I never noticed the battery's presence while wearing the shirt. There are three smallish panels that heat up around the upper torso. Buy a size that will fit snugly to ensure the panels are held close to the skin. I wore this over a synthetic base layer and under my winter riding jacket. Is it overwhelming heat? No. Did I appreciate having it? Yes. Did it save some additional layers? Yes. Bought an extra battery to make a midday swap. I wouldn't expect one battery to last all day. Overall I'm pleased. Cheaper than all out heated gear and more versatile for other winter uses. The longman shirt and heated grips make a pretty decent cool weather combo.

Glad I had it
This spring has been cold, so I bought this shirt. So glad I had it on a week trip I took. It kept me cozy and kept me from ever feeling cold. Without it I'm sure I would have been very cold. I usually take a XL, but got a L because I wanted it tighter. Good choice. I have long arms and worried the sleeves would be shorter, but plenty long enough. I hear a fabric tear sound sometimes when I take it off, but have not found any signs of tear or wear. I'm real happy with my purchase.

Not for the cold weather rider
This shirt has to small patches over the breast area and one behind you where your spine meets your shoulders. They are the only two places that heat up. It minimal at best. I thought the whole thing got warm. Fine for a walk, but not to great to ride in 35 degree weather unless you wear your rain suit to lock 100% of the wind

Ansai battery-heated shirt is a must for cold weather
I tried this shirt under my non-perf racesuit at 45-50deg conditions, and it worked fantastic! I ordered a size smaller to reduce the bunching in the suit, and was still stretchable enough to put another polypropylene thin vest underneath this shirt. When the weather heats up, this shirt performs like a normal compression moisture-wicking longsleeve.
And, RevZilla simply has THE BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE of all the online dealers.

Nice heated under layer.
Fortunately, we have had some great riding weather here in FL this January. I've only had one opportunity to try the shirt, but it performed exactly as I expected. The little battery pocket can be frustrating, but the lead was long enough to put the battery in the inside pocket of my jacket.
My wife loves her Mobile Warming Cypress jacket that I bought her. She is always cold and uses it continually when we ride.
Suggestion to anyone planning to purchase, buy an extra battery and car charging adapter. Battery life is too short for all day riding.

The mobile warming shirt fits nicely and functions exactly as described. It takes a few minutes to get up to temperature but once warmed up to works like a champ. This was one of the least expensive heated gear tops I saw but I am definitely pleased with my purchase.
