Black Jack Brand

Good day everybody, i'm looking into purchasing a heated vest, and came across a pretty good price and fit with a brand called "Black Jack" wondering if anybody else has ever used this before and how it performed. Its really hard to justify the price of the gerbing gear, and this is the first piece of heated gear that I have. thanks.

Never heard of Black Jack, where did you find them ?? I got a TourMaster synergy heated jacket liner last Xmas and it is just great. Good price overall when compared to some other products too.

I have Weber and Gerbing (and I'm not sure if either of those is spelled right). The weber seems to be a little weak, gerbing gets HOT. Sorry, never heard of Blackjack.

Found the BlackJack in a bike shop in Edmonton Alberta, I think they are made in British Columbia, so they may not have a huge name in the industry. The vest is only 120.00, and the heat troller (which many say is not needed for this vest) is 50.00 the Gerbing is 220.00 and the heat troller is 200.00. And they say that you really need the troller for the gerbing's because they get very warm. It will be my very first piece of heated gear so hopefully it works out well.
