Anyone have any input? I am hoping to ride during the cooler months.

12V heater blanket is ~$50
the Hot Wrap is $109 @ www.boardersparadise.com

Does either work well? Is the Hot Wrap that much better? Should I buy some fleece and nylon material and make my own heater blanket?

thanks

After seeing the 'hot wrap', I'm thinking about buying the nicest lined fleece blanket I can find, cut a slit in the seam and have grandma sew some velcro in it.

That's what I did. I bought some fleece for about $15 and told my mom what to sew. Works great.

I was thinking about buying the 12v blanket. I think you can buy them on ebay for about $40. No vent pipe to worry about, just a warm wrap. Let me know what you find out.

what the heck makes a "hot wrap" worth $109?

I have been taking a $10 blanket and using it on the boat and stuffing the heater vent hose up under the blanket for years. Is adding a velco strap to hold the heater hose in place worth another $100 ?????

I decided to make my own hot wrap. I bought fleece and "sport nylon" from a fabric store, I can't sew, so I am paying an auto upholstry shop 20 bucks to sew them together.

We'll see how it works.....

I have a hot wrap that I bought off of Boarders Paradise and I have to say it is really nice. Its windproof and really warm. I dont know if its worth $100+ though.

I got the smaller blanket for 17, They must be all out. The one you see is half off and is a larger blanket.
