The best thing I have ever invested my money is an exo2 Heated vest. It's far better quality than any other heated gear I've owned! I ride down into the teens now because of it.

A good pocket knife. Don't care the brand. Buy one, it may save your life! Just make sure to acquire a decent, high quality blade that will keep an edge, then maintain it!

I really like my arai xd3 and i think for the money i spent, my Alpinestars Koln jacket was a good purchase. the whole dark gray and black fits my aesthetic tastes exactly. (wish I could get any jacket I wanted in dark colors, earth tones, orange trim optional...)

My speed and Strenghth "Hell-n-Back" Jacket

I am tall and broad, this jacket fits perfectly. got the hi-viz yellow and black, and wear it year round, even in the humid/hot Louisiana heat, it is comfortable, fleece and liner underneath and it was warm enough in my late October blue ridge parkway ride.

Best and least expensive

I bought a Stebel Nautilus electric air horn for my street bike. That thing gets attention period, the look of shock and surprise on some peoples faces is priceless.
It was less that $20.00
One of the most satisfying purchases...

My AU$250 proper waterproof hiking tent.
Why I spent years sleeping in leaking cheapass K-Mart tents on rides I will never know.

Motion Pro Trail Tool

Great little piece of kit, all sockets from 8 to 19 (you need to add your own sockets, but they all fit in the zip pouch), screwdrivers, allenkeys and all packs into a little case the size of a cigarette box. Strong and portable. Now there's a great combination.

I echo what others have said about heated gear.

A health problem (unable to keep myself warm) almost stopped my riding, but heated gear saved me. I started with a home-made waistcoat, before commercial gear was generally available. I made it from Constan resistance wire sewn into an old thin golfing jacket. Since then I've had several makes, all worked well.

Apart from comfortable warmth on tap, heated apparel also means you don't have to wear endless pullovers and look like Bibendum (Michelin Man)!
