I'm a recent convert for heated gear. It is so much nicer having freedom of movement due to less insulating "bulk". I still find a key to comfort is sealing the drafts coming up the sleeves, down the neck and occasionally up the back. I cut the tops off of old sox, pull them on my wrists then roll them down until it makes the cuffs tight on my jacket (not a fan of gauntlet gloves). A scarf under the jacket takes care of the neck, and my "front porch" seals my jacket bottom to my torso more securely every year. Our Georgia winter rides seldom start out below 25 degrees and usually are above freezing by the first gas stop. To me it is a wonderful change from the Summer heat rides.
