We thought they were to come with batteries. Our bad! Otherwise we love our best!
My wife loves this heated quilted vest! Her battery pack lasted some 3 hours on the lowest setting - just right for the early morning cold. The controls are easy to follow and very easy to use. She was grateful for the provided zipper for the battery pocket. As a table tennis player, she didn't want to worry that the pack might bounce out. The vest itself needed some TLC upon arrival. Some seams were coming apart and, at places around the sleeves, the machinist had not caught the binding. Many threads had to be sewn back into the material. Obviously, there was no quality control of the item before leaving the sewing institution. The number of stars reflects the time my wife had to spend on repairing the item. But, now that's done, this heated, quilted vest is definitely a keeper.
