That would be just in time for the deep freeze temps - usually, but as we have snow in the Northeast already....
Either way, I am looking forward to a new choice in heated clothing.

Thanks DavisW for the quick response. I'm trying to get the vest connected to the bike. I'm not yet wanting to return the vest because of its ability to compress in luggage (take abuse). This feature versus the older technology of being very careful not to damage the vest wiring as happened to me in the past. So, hopefully with your solution I will soon have a working vest. I'm already freezing in my morning commute without a little heat.

Here is a nice article on our founder and his family which mentions a few of our upcoming products.

Heated clothing: new wireless heat technology – It may be cold outside but it’s warm inside!

Mittens

I would like to get some of the mittens for my wife when we snow ski, but I'm unsure that these are waterproof or if they are well insulated for that type of use. Her hands and feet are always cold when we ski (typical woman) and I would like to get her something
Do yur mittens fit the bill? Thanks!

MBDemon,

I think that they would work great for her. Here are some specs but the short of it is that they have a waterproof internal membrane and feature 3M Thinsulate® Insulation. You can get the full skinny in our TechCenter at http://www.exo2theheatinside.com/TechCenter/heatmitts.php

Leather Palms, Finger Tips and Pull Pad
Lycra Outer Shell for Stretch Comfort and Long Lasting Durability
Hipora Breathable & Waterproof Internal Membrane
Cotton and Polyester Blend Lining
3M Thinsulate® Insulation
FabRoc™ Heat Technology Pane

We also have some new ski gloves that will be available in November. They will offer similar specs as our motorcycle gloves but look much more like ski wear than motorcycle gear. I know that a lot of skiers prefer mittens so it really is up to her preference.

Kudos on the motorcycle gloves. Those are the first heated gloves I've seen that look like they actually provide some useful protection, in addition to heat.

If I'm reading your descriptions correctly on your web page, it looks like both the StormWalker Vest & Jacket only produce heat in the lower back/kidney area? The StormRider Vest produces heat front & back as long as it's plugged into a 12V source.

No plans for a jacket with heated panels in the front, upper back, and maybe even the sleeves too?

BlueLghtning,

Actually our forthcoming StormRider Jacket is the garment that you are looking for. We expect to have this available for sale in January. It will have the same coverage as the Bodywarmer (front & back when plugged into a 12V power source) but will also have heated sleeves (which will not zip off) and may have a heated collar or heated neck area.

PackMule,

Thanks for the comment. We worked hard to make sure that they are durable and help with a rider's safety in addition to making their ride more comfortable.

Hi Guys,

It looks like exo² products are going to be featured in several upcoming independent product reviews. Here is one which highlights the StormShield Gloves and StormRider Bodywarmer.

Stay Warm!

Hi Davis,

Still looking forward to the jacket coming out. To tide me over along with my current one, I am thinking about getting some heated gloves now that it's getting colder. Got a few questions though:

- How is the interface between your gloves and the upcoming jacket going to work, does it need a wire run through there or can you plug it in somewhere into the sleeves?
- Can you regulate the heat of the gloves with a controller? Only yours or a WnS as well?
- Any plans on bringing out a controller that can be hard mounted into a panel/fairing etc?

Cheers,
Lukas
