OK so it's winter and im freezing wearing all the clothing i own.
Weezle extreme or Fourth Element sub-xero combined with merino base layers, mid layer hiking hops multiple times and so on.
So i think its time for a heated vest. Given im not going to be UK based for too long i dont want to fork out £600+ on a Santi so looking at cheaper options to supplement my entire-wardrobe-on-a-dive setup.
Does anyone have any direct experience of the ND Electracore (looks suspiciously cheap...) or the Mares XR heated vest systems? Do they actually work well enough.
Talking dive times of typically 1hr, maybe 2 dives a day only not big long deco hangs.
