    My cousin uses this Mailwaukee heated jacket and it runs off a 18v drill battery and will charge your cell phone. It's pretty sweet.

    Layers, leather, lowers. The three Ls.

    I wont invest in heated gear, the reason is that it doesnt buy many additional riding days.

    What keeps me off the road is snow and salt. Often heated gear would help, but too salty.

    Nothing like the old electric jacket liner. Gore-Tex riding boots too. If your feet are dry and happy so are you.

    Can you turn your 85 pickup into a hotrod if there is salt on the road?

    I have found the heat wrap for sore muscles on my lower backand foot warmers in my boots keep me warm on those cold afternoons. They are great for any outdoor activity.
