Heated Snowmobile TekVest For Body Warmth

Heated Snowmobile TekVest For Body Warmth

This is my heated snowmobile TekVest product review. I’ve been wearing TekVest for years on snowmobile tours. I wouldn’t ride without its comfort, security and protection as I said in a previous review and video. Frankly, I didn’t think there was much TekRider’s Steve Brand could do to improve my TekVest. But I was wrong. After many snowmobile …

I rode a 2017 Ski-Doo Renegade Enduro last winter and here’s why. As a touring trail snowmobiler, I log thousands of kilometres each season in a variety of provinces.
