Keis X10 Heated Body Warmer
Customer Product Reviews
Great product for Scottish weathe
Im between sizes 40&42 in most jackets with an approx 41 in chest. After chatting with SBS i opted for the XS even though they advised dropping again to XXS. The jacket is a nice fit but no as snug as maybe should be. Tried a friends and definately better the size down. The heat is great for cold weather riding and the vest works really well and with the heavy duty controller. I've used both on low and medium heat and this gives plenty warmth especially via the lower back. I don't feel so much through the chest but that's as its not as snug. Im still impressed. Would recommend to all in uk riding through the cooler months.
Perfect Body Warmer for those cold rides
This jacket fits perfect for my size (large), it is really comfortable and the thickness is similar to a medium size jumper in thickness. Works really well and with the heavy duty controller makes perfect sense and provides all the controlability for temperature you need.
Fantastic jacket with the added 3 level controller. Had to go up a size as it was a little tight. SBS.co.uk fantastic even when the courier lost the returned jacket they sent a new one out that arrived next day. -3 and even the hi temp was a bit hot so normally run medium. Makes riding even when it's raining cold foggy knowing your gonna be warm. Top bit of kit, top company.
Superb heated vest
Bought this for a trip to scotland in april. So glad we did as it was cold but the superd heated vest kept my partner warm as pillion. Check sizes though as they tend to be on the big size, she has an XS and it fits well. Totally recommend one.
Went with a 2XS for a 38 inch chest. It's a good fit without being constrictive. Did a 90 mile return trip to Edinburgh yesterday and it was warm enough with the controller set to minimum. Not freezing conditions, but it was not a warm day either. Having a warm body helps to keep extremities warm. No problems with current drain on the bike's battery either. The jacket has a pocket on the inside for the controller, but that's a bit of a faff to use so I haven't bothered. Overall a good purchase.
Makes a huge difference in cold conditions! Worn though 1 winter, so far so good, no issues. Am able to concentrate, relax and even enjoy riding in winter now. Definite must for those who ride in the colder temperatures. Also means you don't have to layer up quite so much which is nice. Only thing to be wary of is sizing as most reviews mention; I am about a 38 inch chest (usually small/medium) and went with a 3XS! It's very snug but I gather that's a good thing as a closer fit should mean better contact with vest, also it's best warn next to base layer. Could've got away with 2XS but went for closer fit, and it's elasticated - I'll just have to go easy on the pies. Remember to buy a battery/charger separately if you don't want to be wired to the bike!
Used it during recent cold spell and kept me warm - wish I had bought one years ago. Definitely need the controller as haven't needed it above the lowest setting. Easy to set up with the additional battery pack I ordered. Only niggles - as with everyone else I would say the sizing is crazy. Definitely go down 2 or 3 sizes. Also the battery pack sits down low and therefore stretches the waistband of your "jeans". Well made and appears durable so far.
Great Product. Toastie!
Really pleased with this vest. It's lightweight, fits snugly under bike gear and the temperature controls are easy to use. The price was fantastic, came with temp controller too. You really can't beat this product. As the other reviews say, be sure to order 2 x sizes smaller as it's very generous.
For biking and work!
Great quality, very comfortable and versatile. I bought my for work ( as I work outside in all weathers), it makes a big difference when it's cold and being outdoors for extended period of time. The sizing is a bit confusing I'm M but I had to go for xxs for good fit as it needs to sit tight against your body.
Ordered this as a replacement to my previous Keis Body Warmer that, after 8 years, had finally given up the ghost. The new model is lighter and heats up quicker. I agree with other reviews that the sizing is a bit out, definitely go for a size smaller than you usually wear. It was dispatched within a couple of hours of ordering, great service as usual
Apart from size issues the X10 body warmer seems pretty good, it's an extra layer without even turning it on and when I do it's with the battery pack which I'm still trying out, 3 hrs on the low setting so far, possibly more it's been there when I've needed it
Where have you been all my life !
A really great bit of kit for the money and well designed with 3 extra outlets (i plug my keis gloves in one) the heat is almost instant, but i would have to agree that the sizing is a fair bit out, i was gonna send mine back for a smaller size but my bike jacket is tight and holds it close enough to my baselayer to keep everything warm, its also great that it comes with a temp controller (definetely needed) and the loom to go on the battery, if your using your bike in cooler conditions - what are you waiting for? just buy this keis heated vest- you won't regret it !!
