Is that the suit with heating elements running through it and connects to some kind of battery?

No battery.  It appears to be a giant sleeping bag with internal crossing straps that keeps it from falling off when you open it.

I think they probably work very well, that said.. you can spend about 275.00 less, and just use a camo'd large sleeping bag from Walmart or Sportsmans guide.
Get a pair of suspenders, attach them inside and there you go, a body suit that will keep you just as warm and 275 dollars less.
After getting very cold on my last hunt, I will be experimenting with and doing this for next season.

Yeah, I looked into them, but I couldnt afford to pay over three hundred dollars for it! Never thought about the sleeping bag thing!
