I got to use my heated gear this week for the first time and it works pretty well. It has 2 plugs in parallel, one for the upper body and one for the lower, the gloves are in series with the jacket, and the socks are in series with the pants. With just the liners on under my jeans and perforated leather jacket I stayed comfortable in around 50° weather.
The only downside to the gear is my feet and hands obviously heat up much faster than my core and legs to the point I had to unplug one of my gloves from the circuit and unplug my entire bottom half to keep my feet from catching fire.
Once I can find a place to mount the controls I won't have to resort to such extreme measures. As of now it goes in my pocket and is hard to grab with my gloves on.
