jacket...

just hooked up my heated jacket.... put it on and within about 5 seconds i could feel the heat in my arms, left the bike running for a min or so and the jacket was propper roasting! Its thin like a gore tex jacket so it fits under my leathers.
Havnt had it out on the road yet but its gota be a massive improvement!
Only one little niggle.... i thought i would have come with a temp controller so its either HOT or not....
Im thinking about getting the trouser liners now!

I've tried heated inner gloves.

I bought some heated inner gloves at the NEC show a few years ago. They burned the backs of my hands (big red marks!) and I didn't wear them again. In fairness the glove ensemble was quite a tight fit because I was trying to keep the security and feel of summer gloves with added warmth and it didn't work. Better with bulkier gloves probably. I also didn't like being plugged in to the bike's battery.

Gerbing heated gloves

On a recommendation I bought the Gerbing heated gloves for last winters commuting. They are superb. Excellent quality leather and comfy so that i use them on all but the hottest summer days. With the heating on they get very warm when you stop but on the move they are fine. Used them down to -7 last winter and still warm at motorway speeds. Yes I would like the optional temperature controller but make do with switching them on/off as required. I have fixed the wiring loom to the lining of my jacket with safety pins and cable ties so that i can remove the wiring loom  when the weather is warmer. Excellent gloves that keep all your fingers and thumb warm and better than heated grips. Not cheap but you do get what you pay for.:smile

Got mine from www.poweredadventure.co.uk.

Get it.  I go out on my bike when I'm cold to warm up!  Expensive, but I've had cheaper and the old adage that you get what you pay for is true.
