BILT Explorer Adventure Suit review - - DESTRUCTO TESTED!
By Eric Hall
I have frozen for the last time and need to get some good heated gear. I rode with a heated vest once and it was heaven. I've heard of Gerbings but don't know much about them or other brands.
Zach uses Tour Master Synergy 2.0 vest and likes it. Any other recommendations?
I ride in SoCal where it's only cold in the winter and by cold I mean between about freezing and 50.

Recently I noticed a product called Epic ID USB Bracelet. In a nutshell, it's an emergency themed design that allows emergency medical professionals access to who you are, your contacts, and vital health info in the event of an accident where you can't communicate such or just want fast,easy transfer of this info.
It's priced around $35 bucks and attractively packaged. But, being the DIY'r that I am, I wondered if one could make something perfectly functional out of one of these?
I know that emergency responders are used to looking for medical bracelets and necklaces, so could you stick a simple USB device like this one on a silver ball chain, brush on a simple red cross and upload simple .txt files of pertinent info? I have all of these materials laying around the house. I wonder how a summer of body heat & perspiration will affect a non-waterproof thumb drive? Maybe I just need to try it and report back?
Looks like Verbatim makes what I'm talking about for only $12.00.
I'd assume that .txt files would be about the most readable format for emergency personnel? Anyone know? I think I'm going to give it a shot, just for chits/grins.
Anyone use these products? What vital information do you think should be included?
