what to do: get a suck (OK, buy a brand new pair of sucks) and
several hand warmers (chemical ones are great): put the spare
batteries in the suck (or sucks) with the hand warmer and put it in
the bag, then switch often ...

no need of the cop-on-a-bike

but this metz (SCA) vulnerability is strange.. maybe some gaffer's
tape could help?

I'm inclined to believe that the problem was with the foot. The back screen was still turning on even after the flash stopped communicating. This happened to me last night too, two nights in a row - I had 3 sets of spare batteries. I swapped the foot with a SCA 301 (manual adjustments resulted in several burned heads at least in the beginning - I hadn't shot A mode in about a year now) and it worked ok for the rest of the night. I think I'll send this foot back to Metz for a check.
