2. Aerostich WINDSTOPPER Electric Vest, $197
Cold weather riding can either be fun or miserable. With the Aerostich WINDSTOPPER Electric Vest under your riding gear, you can focus on the fun of winter riding. The heated collar is shortened and thinned to keep from bunching between the rider’s neck and jacket, while the vest’s trunk is lengthened to maximize the heated torso coverage. Both the cables and the vest itself pack away into the built-in pockets for compact storage. A fused, lighted cord and power switch are included and can be ordered with QuiConnect 2, SAE, or BMW connectors. A variety of accessories — including a thermostat — can be found on the Aerostich website.
