[Costco] $179.99 Fired Up Heated Vest Liner

Not a very hot deal, but I did not find size medium last year. Today I saw it when browsing , so I bought one. You can using the $20 or $40 or $50 coupon if you have one.

I feel like layering is more effective and economical than this.

More economical, yes. More effective, absolutely not. With no wind, like in my unheated garage, all I need is a t-shirt, this vest, and a fleece pullover (in that order) - and I hate the cold. I also wear the same combination (or less) under my motorcycle jacket in 10 degree weather on the highway between Toronto and Waterloo with no problems, even at double the limit. Before this vest, I’d be shivering within 15 minutes, and I’d be bundled up with much thicker layers which also hinder my movement.

By the way, get the smallest size you can squeeze into in order to maximize the heat transfer to your skin. It’s a very thin and stretchy material. I got XS and I have a 39 chest. If I could get smaller I would. Then wear it over the thinnest t-shirt you can (like a wife beater) and then wear your layers over it. Basically treat it like an undershirt and you shouldn’t need anything more than medium.

ditto to above. Chest is 42/43 and medium. Bought this last year. I will agree that the battery isn't the best. but if you keep it low, and don't always leave it on. It's not a bad gadget. I initially regretted it last year but funny enough, I needed to be outside more this year and its been great.

I usually have it over my t-shirt like above, and just modulate the heat. It definitely heats up nicely. It comes with two batteries.

So you're paying almost 200$ for this and it still only lasts for up to 2 hrs on high . Why can't engineers figure this stuff out ?

No, it comes with two proprietary 11.1v lithium polymer batteries (use them one at a time).

Is it something that comes with the renewal letter? I never looked closely at them - as soon as I see renewal, I throw it out. I just have them renew it at the counter when it's expired.

They include 2 batteries, so double that. They are limited by the battery technology currently available. They could have included larger batteries, but then it would be heavier, more uncomfortable, and more expensive. I'm sure you can buy more batteries from them. You don't realize how hot this thing gets when worn properly. But if you layer up UNDER it, then you won't feel anything.

On "gift of membership" ignore the "valid only for new members" it is a lie

Make sure you know the location of the closest burn-unit, just in case.
