    Yup that’s where to find him. But a little too late for me for this year I guess. I’m not as cold weather friendly as may have thought I was.

    Took me a while to find the GTA thread. Heading out to scoot around town on my airhead with the nice weather. DRZ is up at the cottage out near Kaladar north of Belleville/Kingston if anyone ever heads out that way to ride trails.

    Does anyone have experience with this Battery powered heated jacket? Sturges Cycle in Hamilton advertised it last year and GP Bikes has it:

    I like the idea of being able to use it when I'm off the bike in the winter. My wife and I walk quite a bit I'm usually freezing my skinny ass off :D

    I haven't used that one in particular, but it does claim to be 12v which I think is a good thing. I have 12v heated gear, and while the amperage on my Gerbing stuff might be higher, I'm sure these cordless options are OK.

    Depending on how the battery is charged, you could likely power it from a large USB power bank. The jacket has a 4400mAh battery built in, but you can get 26,000mAh USB power banks which might plug into the jacket or charge up the built-in battery depending on how it's wired up.

    Thanks Tim. I'm honestly not familiar with the mAh rating. Is the standard 4400 mAh battery adequate or would the 26,0000 mAh unit be more or less required kit?
