For those interested. I just received this email that the heated vest is available to order. I do like mine here in Minnesota.
Steve do you mind me asking how many hours you get out of a charge at what level?
From the reviews I've read it sounds like 2.5/3 hours per battery. Guys recommend you buy extra batteries. The company states 6 hours on low, not sure if low will work in really cold weather. Debating whether to buy or not. Some reviews from bowsiters would be helpful.
I guess I can't fully answer that as I've never completely discharged the battery. I don't turn it on until it's really needed. Then I turn it on high till it warms up good then lower it to medium. Probably have it on this way for about 2 hours. I think they claim 6 hours on low. I'll probably buy an extra battery this year as a back up. This will be the 3rd year I've had it.
I have the vest and love it. I also only just turn it on when needed and that's usually the last couple hours of the evening.
If I read the Email correctly this vest is supposed to be worn next to the skin is that correct and also how you guy's wh have one wear it?

I wear my heated vest over a lightweight core shirt so it’s next to skin
I wear it as my first base layer directly on the skin nothing in between. That's how it's meant to be worn. No problems.

I wear mine over base layer. I like it. Makes morning sits much more pleasant. Evening sits I turn it on last hour, so I don't fidget as much.
Ordered mine, cannot wait! I got in the Pre-order sale and they threw in an extra battery free.
How's the sizing?
LB I ordered a waypoint system last season and their sizes are pretty spot on, take your measurements and see what size fits you, if you get it and don't like the fit you can always return with 30 days and get a new size or refund. I love their gear, real nice designs and features, also bought the base and mid layers to go with it, it all fits and works great, the heated vest will complete my setup perfectly.
I also wear it next to the skin and the sizing is right on too. I bought an extra battery for it and just keep it in a pocket. Havn't had to use that yet.
Well I jumped, hope I like it.
The best heated vest out there by far!!!!!! best invest for my kids and they love it for all occasion. hunting or ice fishing
