I bought one for the low price of $250 and I wish I hadn't. The thing feels like it weighs 10 lbs, the battery life isn't close to what is advertised, the battery pack doesnt stay connected while your walking around, never mind while riding, and I honestly cant tell when the thing does become disconnected because it doesn't feel like it makes any difference when you're on the hill. If you plan on riding in it save you're money. If you don't mind coughing up that kind of cash for something to sit around in at home then go ahead and buy it. It is pretty comfortable to chill in after a long cold day on the slopes.
