The controller has never let me down. The high setting under a quality wind proof jacket (one that has a longer tail so as to discourage updrafts so common on Stroms) has always kept me warm. I clip my controller to my tank bag in a position that I have easy left hand access to the controller knob. Makes adjustments on the fly easy and allows you to find the exact watts you need for varying conditions (speed, ambient temp, sunshine-vs-overcast, etc).
Good luck with your winter riding.
