@oldypigeonpopper, a power bank of that size should keep the jacket ticking along for half a day, all depends on age and past use of the battery and how high you have it turned up.

They are only £10 from B&M if it packs up.

You won't go out without it once you have one 👍

Hello, it's quite big compared to other power banks so hoping it will fit in the jacket pocket, not sure on use as it was my son's but charges ok, I will look at a smaller one like Bruno mentioned , will most use at night when I can get back to farm, be good for piking / beating/ winter wear in general, thanks to post

You will have to try and see how long it lasts especially if you buy the jacket with 9 pads, the jacket comes with a pocket inside for the battery, mine is just over 5" wide and 6" deep and the lead is inside said pocket. If you wear a thermal T shirt then the heated jacket followed by a padded shirt you should be slow cooked to perfection in a couple of hours, turn to red for a crispy skin.

Hello, looking at this one from same seller , 373804549255, in large as I'm 38/40 , it shows front and back heat patches, ?, 

Hello, so this is the heated jacket that came today, 373804549255, , size large but only fits over my shirt and tightish but still have free movement, might get an XL but see how this goes, got a jumper over with short zip top, then my shooting coat,  power pack is a bit big for pocket so will look at a smaller one but still have enough power to go 4 to 6 hours, back and 2 front heat patches now on full and toasty already, see how it goes on my walk to the river and see who's fishing, about 2 hours and will check power after, and yes I should have got one weeks ago and maybe I would not of got this cold 🤔🙄😁

Hello, I got 3 hours on full power before the power pack gave up, so will try on medium tomorrow, a good buy so far,

Will anybody recommend some thermals?

i felt the cold on my peg for the first time ever, whilst wearing normal gear over a Helly Hansen thermal top. I wish to ramp up the base layer, hence the request. 

Has anybody worn Sub Zero F2?  

Thanks, all. 

Hello, did you find any suitable ?

Not really. 

1. Still not convinced by HH - as I said in my opening comments. 

2. Electric costs don’t float my boat. 

3. I won’t buy anything that’s obviously “made in China”, so looking at the pricier end of the market.

4. I work in London and will stop by the numerous outdoors shops at some point. 

5. I like the sound of anything made for a Scandi winter - if it’s good enough for them, it should suit me.

Hello, as I said my best thermals are M and S and the heated waistcoat works well, I got a Juice 4 power bank , 3 hours on full, 5 on medium, best wishes
