Re: New List, Cold Riding

Geoffrey,  I had this plan of using the long sleeve heater as the 
jacket liner.  But, when talking to the sales 'girl' at Rider 
Wearhouse, she said furgetaboudit!  Exactly as you describe, you won't 
get the heat if it isn't right next to the body.

So the new plan is to use the regular insulated liner that came with 
the jacket, with me wearing a long sleeve thermal undershirt and then 
the vest.  I thought it would be nice to leave the electrics with the 
jacket, but have given up on that plan.  Will post how this all works
