Heated Gear - November 12, 2008, 07:41 AM

Well I finally stepped up and got some heated gear! WOW does this stuff make the commute easier! Has not been too cold but still a nice chill and with the 65 watt heated jacket liner and 15 watt carbon gloves i can't wait for the first below teens degree day! Even with riding a bike with zero wind protection this First Gear stuff lets me concentrate on riding instead of being cold. If you plan on riding during the winter and have more than a 15 minute commute get heated gear. You will love it. Of course I got mine from RnR Cycles! If you want to check the gear out let me know.

No problem's with the KTM Duke. I ran the heated gear and a gps yeterday and had no problems. Just make sure your battery is good if it is older than 2 years.

I've been postponing getting heated gear for a very long time. I tried everything, and wasted a lot of money getting wool, then cashmere, then gortex stuff to try out. When it gets cold enough and you ride long enough, none of that stuff will work. Heated gear is easy and convenient and I highly recommend you don't waste your time like I did. I'm highly critical of things I buy, but I have to say that heated gear is one of the best purchases I ever made.

I just bought a new commuting jacket and a set of winter gloves from Scorpion. I will see how they work before I add anything heated. My commute is only about 20 miles roundtrip right now so I'm not too worried about the weather.

Besides, I don't think the priller has the charging system to handle it.

I might have a dirt bike problem.

What brand stuff did you buy? Anything about the gear that annoys you?

I'm ready to pull the trigger and trying to decide what to buy . . .

I've done the research and talked to the people that use it. Gerbings.

It's on my IH article list.

Are you guys still doing heated grips out the door for $100?

I think I'm going to give in and get some heated gear this year as well, starting with jacket/gloves.

How hard is it to wire it to your bike?

From all that I've read and found, Gerbings is the best. The new microwire seems to be awesome!

There is a guy in Mt. Airy, MD who sells it out of his house. He happens to be the #1 dealer in the nations for like 4 years or something.

His contact info:

I'm liking the First Gear carbon gloves but the heat controllers look like something from a '70s Heath Kit. It seems that the gloves would plug into a Gerbing jacket liner as they use the same connector. It seems worth it to get the dual controller to separate jacket and glove adjustment. Also thinking portable belt clip mount controller vs permanent bike installed.

What say ye to this?
