Product Review: Keis X30 womens heated vest (£115) and battery (£59.99)

What’s good about the Keis X30 womens heated vest?

My wife Sarah is not a fan of riding pillion in the winter, but she wanted to be able to go on the back of the bike when the temperature dropped. This Keis vest runs from a battery (a £59.99 option), which means it’s completely self contained, and it has an easy-to-use controller to regulate temperature (usually the controller is an optional accessory but at the time of this review it’s being included with the sale of the vest). Battery life is impressive and even when running on the maximum setting will last between two and three hours. It also has outlets to power other items from the Keis range like trousers or gloves, which minimises excess cabling. It has been a brilliant addition to Sarah’s kit on cold days and is so well tailored and fits snugly under jackets that she wears it under regular coats for winter walks and school runs.

And what’s not?

The control unit is housed inside the jacket, meaning you have to unzip the jacket if you want to change the heat setting.
