Powerlet's RapidFIRe Heated Jacket Liner packaged includes the Dual Wireless Remote Heat Controller. Controller receiver is pre-installed and Pre-synced for your convenience.

Powerlet's 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 the temperature controller with the RapidFIRe 105 watt jacket liners.

The RapidFIRe Advantage

The most unique feature is the heating system that is incorporated 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 their customers, they enjoy a lifestyle utilizing convenient modern electronics and wear our heated gear for commutes to work and trips across the country.

Powerlet rapidFIRe Jacket Liner With Dual Wireless Controller Package 4.8 5 59 59
Jacket failed a year after purchase Bad. Do not buy! To be fair: this is not Revzilla's fault. But if anybody is even slightly considering this jacket, let me steer you clear. I bought this in Sept 2013. It has *never* been reliable in its performance and I have no idea why. Maybe I just got a defective one. As of this morning. it has quit heating entirely. Extremely frustrating, not to mention a cold ride to work. I've checked the wiring harness; it's fine. I've synced the controller numerous times. I even changed the batteries in the controller yesterday and re-synced it. Nothing has fixed the situation. Since I'm a year out from purchase, I'm not too sanguine that I'll be able to get any help from Powerlet, but I did email them this morning. October 23, 2014
awesome warmth Great heat....dual controller is awesome....glove liners work really well.....need windproof gloves over the top to keep heat in tho. Would like to see jacket longer especially in the back.....otherwise great product so far. September 22, 2014
Fantastic! Makes an otherwise miserable ride into an enjoyable one. Next purchase......heated glove liners! The fit guide is pretty accurate, however, if you are a big guy with a gut go with the next size up. September 8, 2014
Top Quality Fits comfortable. Heats up evenly and the construction is top rate. The instructions for wiring routing is vague and seems to describe a different model. August 26, 2014
RapidFIRe jacket liner Fit guide seems to be spot on, Have only used it breifly one morning, It's light years ahead of the old vest it replaced! Controller is easy to pair, jacket really does warm up 'instantly' and has a good even heat. At this price... buy it, you won't be disappointed. Controller is small and easily EzPass velcro'd to an accessible spot with the security strap looped around something solid. Recommended. August 11, 2014
Very Warm very quickly This will have you warm before you leave your driveway. I have used others but this one seems to keep you warmer and faster. July 14, 2014
Great winter riding jacket I bought the complete kit (jacket, gloves, wireless controller, and power outlet) three years ago. Since then, I have used the jacket on a 2009 VROD and now a Ducati Diavel. The only problem has been with the jacket's zipper wearing out. The zipper looked intact, but the zipper's grip would not hold the jacket closed. Powerlet exchanged the jacket for free. Great customer service. The jacket and gloves perform as advertised, in fact you can get blisters on your hands if not careful. The jacket is just as great down to 35 deg. F. In fact, I never have had to turn the controls to 100%. June 28, 2014
great product The jacket liners fits well and are really warm. Wireless remote makes it easy to adjust the temp. My wife and I wear them as a normal liner also when it's too cold for mesh jackets, but not so cold to need heat. June 23, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
Carl V: Hi Richard,

I have gerbing gloves I am using with the powerlet jacket and they work great. With that being said I would say yes you could use the gerbing controller with the jacket. They have the same type connection.
I am very pleased with the jacket, heats up very quickly. The only down side about the jacket is that it fits a little small

Blair S asked: There appears to be zipper for a large pocket on the left front side of this liner. Is this some sort of "Napoleon" pocket? Is there room inside for maps or gloves? Apr 6, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
David H: It is quite a large pocket. You can turn it inside out and stuff the whole jacket into it. Or use it as a map pocket.

Jacket is great, highly recommend it. Two quibbles: the internal controller and cables make kind of a cumbersome lump on the lower left side; and the control knobs would be easier to use if they had some detents. But it works great.

Leslie B: It is an odd pocket of sorts. It is not extremely wide, about a little wider than a normal glasses pocket; but it is very deep going almost all the way to the bottom of the jacket. A map would fit for sure, phone or glasses too, gloves might be a tight fit depending on size... Apr 8, 2014

Kathleen H: That "pocket" is actually the stooge pouch for the jacket. You fold the jacket into the pocket and zip it closed. Self Storage. You can throw the controller unit in there as well. Sep 15, 2014

Robert M: I'm pretty sure that it's used to compress the liner for storage. It all bunches up into the pocket. You can also put maps or gloves in it when wearing it. Apr 6, 2014

A S asked: I dont see any mention for a battery pack. Is this kit designed to be used only with a 12v battery connection or can you buy an external 12v battery similar to gerbing? Oct 19, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jeff F: Hello, I will try and answer; not 100% sure what is being asked.
This uses one connection to the battery that has a coax cable for jacket to plug in to. The wire runs out of bottom of jacket (long lead), then plugs in to lead connected to battery. Then, it uses a wireless controller ( I mounted mine on clutch res), which that controller used 2 AAA batteries to run the unit heat troller. I also have the glove liners. There are leads that you take out of a small zipper pouch on sleeve, the plug in to glove liners. The controller has 2 knobs, 1 for jacket & 1 for gloves. This is really a great set-up. Pretty clean, and works well. I am very happy with mine, on my 2nd season with it. Hope this helps.

Gary M: I did not research battery pack operation as I had no interest in that as an option. It comes equipped to wire directly to battery or fuse block. Then temperature control is via the dual wireless controller which I mounted on top of my brake reservoir on the handlebar via Velcro.

Steve E: I'm not sure they have a battery pack for the Powerlet Jacket but I do know both brands use the same power connectors. In other words you could use the external 12v battery from Gerbing and use it with the Powerlet RapidFire Jacket Oct 20, 2013
Reply to Steve Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Douglas B: The Powerlet jacket liner is meant to be used with a harness wired into your bike's battery. Love the jacket! Actually used it today for the first time this year. I find it much more comfortable than the Gerbings. Oct 20, 2013

A shopper asked: Also. on your glove liners, I have winter gloves that fit fine with a bit of room, will these be thin enough to fit inside heavier gloves? Dec 23, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Steve55: I ordered the jacket liner with the dual wireless controller. It comes with a connector to hook onto your bikes battery. Took me 30 minutes to install the connector to the battery. Pretty simple, actually. Removed seat, and fastened connector to hot and cold battery terminals using screwdriver.
Regarding the gloves: may be a bit tight in winter gloves that already fit fine. Usually you need about a size up. But the liners are thin, so you don't know for sure. I would add that heavy winter gloves are not needed with these liners. They work fine and will keep you warm with a lighter glove : I think the best is an uninsulated glove that is water and wind resistant or impervious.
Mar 26, 2012
Reply to Steve55 Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
KRZMSL: Yes... all wiring and the controller are included so you just have to install the harness to the battery and then hook into the jacket. You do have a set that will require you to pair the wireless controller (if that's the one you get) to the sensor in the jacket... very easy install...
As for the gloves... I've found that my liners will fit in any of my gloves that I've been wearing before... so just make sure you're liners are fitting snug...
Jan 22, 2013
Reply to KRZMSL Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Henry K: They sell the jacket with and without the kit. So unless you already have a controller and wiring, get the kit which includes everything to get you going. As for the glove liners, if you gloves have room in them the liners will fit fine. However, for a few dollars more, you can buy a complete glove that you use when you want/need heat. I would think that putting on a liner and then a glove is more of a pain than just slipping on a glove. Nov 19, 2012
Reply to Henry Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
K12RSGuy: The jackets all come with a battery harness for the bike. The powerlet plug generally not included. I use the coaxial connection with the harness. The glove liner should fit ok inside your winter glove. But go with electric liners or gloves if you have the jackets. Combined with heated grips, a good choice for cool and colder weather. On my new snowblower, Ariens 28 deluxe, I had their heated grips installed. Some nice at -10C. Dec 25, 2011

greg6494: I use the Powerlet glove liners inside my normal winter gloves that have a "bit of room" with no problems at all. The glove liners are nearly microfiber and don't take up much space inside a larger glove. I'm attaching a picture...you can see how thin the fabric is. Don't let that fool you though...it is durable stuff that emits far infrared heat that will keep you toasty. Jan 21, 2013

A shopper asked: I ride a Ducati with a pre-installed SAE lead (I use it to hook up a battery tender, for example).

Does this kit come with something that would let me hook it up to the SAE connector, or do I need an adapter of some sort?
Oct 27, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The battery harness that comes with heated gear is designed to handle the higher amounts of electricity required to run the heated gear. Battery tenders harnesses often utilize a smaller guage wire that is sufficient for just charging your battery but may not be able to meet the demands of heated gear. You can run both harnesses if you wish or you can get an adapter that will allow you to plug your battery tender into the Powerlet harness. Either way, we do not recommend plugging your heated gear into a battery tender battery harness. Nov 23, 2012
Reply to RevZilla Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Henry K: Unless your SAE connector is on the left side of your bike (and far enough forward that you can reach it while seated), you will want to use the connector that comes in the kit. Besides, why spend extra money on the adapter if you don't have to? The kit is very easy to install and can be done with minimal tools (just remember to disconnect the negative lead from the battery first and reconnect it last to prevent arcing the positive lead if your wrench touches any metal on the bike when you are working on it). This is a great product that you will enjoy the very first time you need it! Nov 19, 2012

KRZMSL: This outfit will come with everything you need to connect directly to your positive and negative terminals on your battery. You can also check into a more elaborate set up and get a fuse box if you have more items your powering on your rides...

greg6494: Powerlet has a SAE to coax connector.

The kit comes with battery pigtails to coax, but nothing that supports DIN or SAE.
I ride a BMW that has a DIN socket, I use a DIN to coax connector.

A shopper asked: Why aren't these winter gear items rated on a temperature scale? This jacket, for example, looks a little thin and not really capable of keeping a rider warm in winter temps. Could this keep me warm on a early morning ride into work at say 10 degrees with a slight wind? Oct 20, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Randy S: This jacket is meant to be worn as a base layer within your motorcycle gear that is close to your body in order to efficiently transfer heat to your core and arms. There is no waterproofing or padding/protecting within this jacket.

I can tell you one thing, it packs some serious heat when the power is turned up. Enough so that if you are not careful, you can overheat very quickly. On warmer days, the heat levels this jacket put out can be uncomfortable.

The coldest I have ridden with it is low 30s (maybe a high 20s) so far and I do not have jacket that is really meant for real winter riding (the outside is mesh with zip in liner and thinsulate) and I stay quite warm.

My next purchase will be a Klim Klimate jacket. Paired with that I have no doubt that the Powerlet liner will provide more than enough heat for even the coldest temperatures when riding.

The wireless controller package makes temperature adjustment very convenient. In my opinion it is definitely worth the buy.

Daniel S: This jacket will cook you if you're not careful. I guess it depends on what shell you have over it on whether it will go down to 10 degrees. I've been perfectly comfortable below freezing with a Klim jacket over it. Even if it doesn't go to that temp you won't find a better heated jacket. Both my wife and I wish they made pants.

David P: This jacket is great under my leather jacket no matter how cold it is when I have been riding it feel like the sun is on your body, I have never had it turned up to the full amount. With the addition of the heated gloves and socks, after a rider I feel like I just got out of a warm bed.

John H: FWIW, this, as are others such as Gerbing, are supposed to be worn under a jacket. As for temp, if you mean 10C/50F, I have worn this jacket liner under other stuff at temps of 45F at a setting of perhaps 20% on the thermostat. Hope this helps. Oct 21, 2014

Tim J. C: This jacket LINER is capable of keeping you warm in cold winter temps. 10deg.f. win used with a jacket. Powerlet rapidFIRe Jacket liner is a Liner. Can be worn without a jacket but on 10deg.f. days a jacket over the liner would be needed. Tim Oct 23, 2014

Jason S asked: I ride a BMW GS800 adventure with the accessory plug in. Would you us the power let or the gerbing jacket? Feb 11, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Bonnie P: Jason-talked with other BMW riders before purchasing. Those that have the rapidfire really like it --stretch panels on side do not restrict movement, fast heating, you do not feel any wires and wireless is a bonus. Some of these riders had previous Gerbing products. All heated clothing have some cool spots, but with the fast heating of this liner cool spots disappear in a hurry and are not noticeable. Also depends on outer jacket you wear. Purchased glove lines as well, do not feel any wires, very comfortable. went down a size as they have lots of stretch. Even with heated grips sometimes we need a little extra warmth, not just on our palms. You have the aux. plug but you can wire directly to the battery. (May want to use aux. plug for other gadgets). I ride from early spring (as soon as all the snow, salt and sand is off the road until the first snow flake fall. Now only if they would make a pant liner. I do own Gerbing heated gloves and pant liners, but they are older style and you notice the wires,

Can't waite to get out to ride and try out my new gear.

Stay safe, stay warm, have fun.

What a perfect world.

Kathleen H: The Powerlet products are thinner and are much warmer than the Gerbing products. I have owned both and prefer the Powerlet under outer wear for warmth. I used a powerlet heated jacket liner and the glove liners on a ride in Chicago last November. I put an wind blocking over glove on over the liners. It was 8 degrees that day without windchill/riding factor. We rode 60 miles to lunch and 60 miles back home and I was perfectly warm on my BMW K1600GT. I had the heated grips turned on as well as the heated seat. Yes we are a hardy bunch here in Chicago but the riding season is short and now I have bragging rights on my buddies who didn't ride!

john d: I own the Powerlet, jacket and gloves. They heat up super quick. They can get very hot. My riding buddy has the same setup. I tried on his rig. I really like the fit of the gloves, that's what swayed me to buy the Powerlet setup.

I can't compare it to the Gerbings, since I never owned the Gerbings.

Al C: I have the Powerlet and did a great deal of investigating which to buy when I was looking. I believe that I made the right move as this jacket liner is more than ample and I ride in cold weather. Usually never exceed 3/8 - 1/2 setting on my dual remote heat-troller. Al C. Feb 18, 2014

MotoMikey: I have the Rev'it Sand Jacket and only wear a T-Shirt under this heated jacket with no other liners installed or other layers. I rode in temps from 26F to 40F and was warm with it set to about 75% power.

I also bought the heated glove liners, but don't really like them. They work great and even though they are thin, they just add too much bulk for my liking. I've found that a decent waterproof/windproof 3 season glove like the Rev'it Summit H20 works best in conjunction with heated grips and a heated jacket liner. If your core temperature is warm (from the heated vest), your hands will stay much warmer when riding.

KRZMSL: I'd have to say if you are wearing the size jacket you would normally wear you only need a long sleeve t-shirt to go under this jacket liner. Trust me... you'll be warm enough with just the t-shirt, heated liner and your regular riding jacket. As far as a glove goes.. I've tried my normal sized gauntlet and shorty gloves and they both fit fine. The fit will be slightly tigher obviously but nothing that will impair your ability to ride and do the normal functions you'd need to while riding. The glove liners will fit snug... make sure they're not too loose or they'll "bunch up" under your reg. riding gloves... hope that helps! Jan 22, 2013

Troika: I have a Powerlet jacket and wear typically two layers under it. The outer jacket is typical bike rider outer jacket with a wind blocker. Works well for me. For the jacket use the Powerlet size recommendations. Yes , you need a pair of outer gloves and should try the outer gloves while wearing
The heated liners. I ended up trying different gloves until I found the correct fit.

A shopper asked: With this jacket, can I connect to my Powerlet heated liner with out a seperate temp controller? With the wireless dual connector, do I still need a separate temp controller for the jacket and/or the gloves? Apr 11, 2014

James A: The dual controller is for this LINER and the GLOVES that attach to the end connectors on the sleeves of this liner (note i did not use the word JACKET, as this is not a jacket, but a jacket LINER). You will not need to purchase a separate wireless controller for the gloves...the dual controller handles both the liner and the gloves. I have the wireless controller mounted on my handlebar...the yellow knob controls the glove temperature and the red knob controls the liner temperature separately...works great. The wireless controller transmits to a receiver in the liner. Your question is worded a little oddly...hope this answer helps. If you need more information, just respond back to this. I have used this liner/glove combo for two seasons with zero problems, down to 5 degrees fahrenheit...nice and toasty warm! Apr 11, 2014

Doug G: There is only one plug connection to the bike. The gloves plug in to the jacket. The remote temp controller can be put in a pocket or anywhere. On my old bike I zip tied it to my handlebars and on my current bike I used velcro to stick it to the fairing for easy adjustments. Apr 11, 2014

Lakiri H: Without the controller it will be on max heat at all times. On high you will sweat even if temps are near freezing! Go ahead and spend the money on the dual wireless controller which will control the jacket and gloves separately. You will thank me for it! May 21, 2014

Karen B asked: Can anyone tell me if I can run the powerlet jacket liner and gloves off of a BMW C600 Sport (scooter)? Powerlet site only lists motorcycles. Bike is CAN-Bus so would need direct battery connection anyway. Kit provides the harness, but does my ride have the capacity? Feb 13, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
James M: The jacket requires 105 watts to operate and the gloves 24 watts. You need to consult your owners manual or call BMW to see if your scooter has the electrical capacity. Try some scooter forums as they are usually a good guide to what's possible. With a 650cc engine it will be close.
CAN-bus seems to be an automotive communication control unit which may use subsystems for power management. You will still need a temp controller for the gloves and jacket.
"CAN bus (for controller area network) is a vehicle bus standard designed to allow microcontrollers and devices to communicate with each other within a vehicle without a host computer." Wiki

Steve E: I can't tell from looking at this if there's any other replies so if I'm repeating the answer, sorry about that.
Your alternator is putting out a few more watts than a K1600(588w/580w) so you should have no problems running the jacket and heated glove liners. When at idle my bike kind of does a slow surge in rpms while the heated stuff is on so my guess would be you may experience this also. It's really not a big deal but if you do have this "problem" than you know what's causing it.
You'll love the RapidFire heat!

Karen B asked: I am riding a BMW C600S, and am electrically disabled. What I need to know is this: Is this product compatible? Does it require the disconnection on the right side as seen in the video to drop it from 105Watts to 60Watts so it only pulls 60W with the BMW CAN-bus to be compatible? By compatible I mean can I run full heat to jacket AND gloves, off the battery, at 60 watts w/o fear of overload for this make/model bike? Feb 5, 2014

David P: Hi Karen, my Triumph doesn't have the same electrical system as the BMW, and I think your battery has a greater Amp hour rating, however I run the jacket, gloves and socks altogether once on the highway in winter and haven't had any problem but I am mindful of the drain on the alternator when I return to city traffic and the delays it presents and adjust the heating accordingly especially as Triumph's are so sensitive about having 12 volts in the battery.
I suggest you have a look on line there is an enormous amount of experience in the forums you just have to get on the right ones.
Once you used heated gear you will wonder why you didn't purchase it sooner it is like summer on wheels.
Thank you,
Regards David.

Al C: That model bike should handle two pieces of clothing without a problem. Those being a 105 watt jacket liner by Powerlet and Glove liners, which by the way, I have both of those items as well as other articles of electrical clothing by various mfrs. and I think the quality of Powerlet is really good and you might not even need to use the 105 setting. If you do use it in the 105 watt mode and add the glove liners as well your scooter should handle it just fine. Where you would run into a problem is if you tried to add any other pieces in addition to these. I hope that this helps you. Al C Feb 18, 2014

Dianne D: I don't know if this helps at all, but I had a powerlet outlet installed so that the power could be keyed and connected to a fuse. During this process, I had to calculate the power draw and it equaled about 8.87amps. My dealer checked my math and connected the outlet to a 10amp fuse. I run both jacket and gloves off of that with the wireless controller and I'm able to turn up both to nearly full power (the gloves get mighty toasty and I've had to back them back off pretty quickly).

David H: As mentioned by David P, while you are actually moving you shouldn't have a problem. If you are the city, traffic lights etc, you have to watch it as the alternator really needs to be spinning (depending on bike, say 2000rpm and up) to keep charging the battery. I put mine into the 60 watt mode even though I drive a Honda ST1300 (high output alternator) since I am mostly stop-and-go on city streets. And honestly, 60 watts is plenty except when it's in the teens! Apr 6, 2014

A shopper asked: I'm interested in the powerlet rapidfire liner. I'm comfortable in a 42 jacket or a large tee shirt. I notice a lot of the comments and reviews say the liner should be a snug fit, so from your experience, does that mean go with the powerlet sizing recommendations? Jan 14, 2013

KRZMSL: "Snug" to me is tighter than you'd usually have something fit in normal circumstances. I'd also use the term "fitting". I know when I first tried this on I felt the size I had chose felt to small and short at the same time....but remember, you're riding while wearing it and the positioning of your gear as you are "sitting" on the bike (hand's on the bars) puts you in a different position than you would be just standing there looking in front of a mirror. This stuff goes under your normal everyday gear so it has to be a bit tighter fitting than you'd be use to. Also if you to happen to get the size wrong, you can't beat Revzilla's exchange policy! Hope that helps! Jan 22, 2013

greg6494: I am the same size as you...I went with a medium (per the Powerlet recommendations) and it fits snugly. My waist size is 35, and I didn't have any problems fitting it around my belly as the Powerlet jacket liner is a box cut. If your waist is larger, you might want to consider a large, if not I wouldn't go to the large size if I were you...it would be too loose. Revzilla has very forgiving exchange policies, you can always ship it back for a large if need be. Jan 21, 2013

Waxrash: I wear an XXL in tshirts, etc. and the XXL liner fit perfect. Snug means little airspace between you and liner. Snug does not mean binding. My old liner was too small and I hated it. This design is very flexible. Other designs also have embedded wires which can also bind. This liner is very comfortable for me. Jan 14, 2013

Troika: Yes, that worked for me as I wear a size 38.
For me, I wear only two underlying layers and then the jacket.
The jacket works very well and the glove liner can get very hot.

Charles R: Most purchase this for riding and you just connect it to your battery. I have a battery tender cable which extends from beneath my seat that I use for connecting heated gear when riding and for connecting to my battery tender to charge the battery while my bike is parked in my garage.

If you are not using it for riding, I don't know whether a portable battery is available. You should call the folks at Powerlet. They will know if you have any options. Are you planning to wear this while sitting outside in cold weather?

J A: I suppose you could hook it to an external 12V battery, that's what it it's hooked to when you're on the bike. Don't know how long the battery would last and you'd have to carry it around -- heavy. The jacket works great when on the bike. Sep 28, 2014

RevZilla: This is a complete kit and should will come with everything that you need to use the jacket liner.

Another thing to keep in mind though is that you will want to check how much Excess Electrical Capacity your bike has via the Powerlet website. Anytime you run heated gear from your bike you need to make sure that the amount of power being used is no greater than the Excess Electrical Capacity otherwise you run the risk of damaging the electrical system on your bike. For example, a 2008-present Street Triple has an EEC rating of 2 stars out of 5. This means that the bike has the ability to run anything that requires an EEC > 120 Watts of power. A heated Jacket liner can be run by a bike with a 1.5 star rating, which supports an EEC > 90 Watts.

KRZMSL: No there isn't anything else you need to purchase unless you want the gloves to go along with it... Another thing I had to do was buy another harness/lead to install on my other bike so I can leave the wiring all hooked up on the battery and just switch from one bike to the other if I felt like it... The jacket comes with all the wiring and the controller. You just have to connect the harness to your battery and pair the wireless controller to the sensor in the jacket and you're done!

Henry K: Everything except the tools to attach the leads to the battery. Disconnect the negative lead from the battery, attach the lead with the fuse to the positive terminal on the battery and the other lead to the negative lead. Snake the wire to a convenient place on the left side of the bike and attach it with the included zip ties so that it stays there.

You should be riding warm in 15 minutes.

Mark H: Well, I'm 6'1 and about 165, athletic build and had this fitted for me when I attended the International Motorcycle Show in DC. If I would have done it myself I would have given myself more room also but the idea of the jacket is to fit snug so that you feel the heat. If it's loose I would think it would impede the performance of the heating. (second skin) The closer it is to your body the better the heat and trust me you'll be thankful for it. It does feel snug, like a regular jacket that maybe was handed down, not quite your size but if you are wearing gear with it you may not notice as much… I don't. I just feel the heat! One of the best investments I could have ever made and wished I would have done it sooner. Hope that helps some. Good Luck! Oct 20, 2014

Michael S: Thar's goign to be a matter of preferrence. Keep in mind that you only have two controlled circuits. If you tie your pants to the gloves... then your pants and gloves will have to be controlled up or down together. Do you find that your hands and legs are in need of the same heat temps?,, or do you think your upper body and legs require the same temps, with the opportunity to run the hands higher or lower independently? My personal preferrence from many years of winter riding would be to control the gloves independently. Heated grips and hand guards also help regulate the hands comfort. Mar 7, 2014
