The concept for this item is great! The main problem is that the heat only lasts about 20-30 minutes, so towards the end of the dive when you are freezing, you are out of heat! If there was some way to activate the heating element during the dive, it would be perfect. This is not possible, however, through a wetsuit with the heating element behind you and under your tank and BCD. They certainly make the first half of the dive nice and toasty though! Make sure you order 2 if you tend to do two tank dives as they need to be boiled between uses.
I am perplexed regarding the reviews which stated that this boat coat ran very small. I ordered a "small", even after reading the reviews, and there is room for another whole person in there with me!
I have tried many scuba gear bags over the years and have never found the "perfect" one until now! I love this bag! It holds everything, can be easily rinsed out, is so convenient to load on and off of the dive boat, and so easy to move with the wheels. Thanks to XS for finally creating the best dive bag ever!
