I'll echo some of the above comments. You may need to generate some heat. The electric vest is great! I have 2 batteries that will last all day on the highest setting. I also use hand and toe warmers, wool socks, etc.

The Gerbing Gyde Torrid Heated soft vest with the heated collar is on sale (link) at $149 (regular $199) so the lower price covers most of the additional battery cost ($49).

 

Just ordered one with a second battery.  It gets friggin' cold in Michigan.  Some of the indoor ranges are not heated in the winter.

Thanks for spending my money for me Bill. 🤣🤣 

 

I have the Milwaukee heated jacket for work (heavy equipment, crane mechanic in MI) and while it's great for that I wouldn't like it for shooting matches. Too bulky.

I take mine off BUT the hand warmers are what I really appreciate.  Interesting review of different jackets.

Hello gents and ladies,

 

         Just wanted to share an experience. First off, once my hands get cold I am pretty much going to have a crap match. Even if I bring hand warmers. I have tried to overcome this barrier but I just can’t shoot at speed with acceptable accuracy and to top it off, I end up making ooor decisions because it messes with my mental game. I am a b class shooter in production looking to make it up to A. Anyfind cold hands to be a problem?

cold hands are the worst!  Takes till the afternoon to actually be able to manipulate the gun effectively.

Do your hands turn colors when cold ,look pale ,almost dead? Could be Rynons syndrome ( im sure thats spelled wrong).  I have had it as long as I could remember.  Sometimes hit as warm as 50 degrees .Got much worse when I went on blood  pressure  medication.  Mentioned it to dr. Changed medication to one that opens up capillaries. Made a huge difference.  Have mentioned to other people who's drs. Have given them prescription for use before cold weather matches.
