Keis V501 Premium Heated Vest - Black / Red
Customer Product Reviews
After over 40 years on 2 wheels this is my first heated garment. What a revelation! It's brill. I tried on a couple of makes and sizes and settled for this one. It's very important to end up with a fitted jacket for it to work effectively. Thanks Sportsbikeshop for the way you operate.
Expensive but love it
This is a high quality vest and works extremely well. You do need to buy the extra heat controller for it or you will get too hot. Pity the controller is not included as the additional cost makes the whole thing quite expensive. However, that said it is worth it. Comes with good quality wiring kit to connect to your bike.
A warm hug
Hi I am now 67 I ride my 1250gs All year round, 12000 on this bike since April 1st. My first venture into heated clothing is this vest. I am surprised how good it is, It keeps the torso nice and warm, I would recommend to all of my age, it's not bulky;and you can drop a couple of layers, so it's more like riding in warmer weather Mel
Nice and toasty!
Riding on a motorway at -1 in never fun but this vest is really warm! Haven't used the max setting yet but I'm sure it will be the equivalent of sunbathing next to the sun. Sizing is completely wrong though. All my gear is Medium and I ordered the XS, which is still not tight enough. The XXS would have been a better fit.
Reliable comfortable and toasty
I have had an early version of this jacket but needed a replacement as the old one had finally given out after many years of hard labour. I chose this one as it is lighter than the standard one. It fits great as per sizing and the heat goes in the right places. Plenty of range of adjustment to be warm but not hot. Doesn't seem to cause any issues to the bike battery. Only thing that's a pain is trying to find the right side of the dongle to switch it on (tactile features would have been useful).
Works well on my K1600, unbelievably warm for such a small current draw (beware of higher power items on some BMW's, but don't worry, as you just don't need them with the V501). I bought 2 sizes smaller than I normally do, so a very snug fit, but really feel the full benefit of the heat that way.
Very useful kit
This gilet is a great piece of kit. I preferred the jacket version. Unfortunately it failed and replacement gilet was the only option. This is still excellent and actually has useful pockets, unlike the jacket. You need the extra cables for your sleeves to the gloves.
