    HEATED CLOTHING


    I'm looking for comments on heated clothing.

    my Eclipse electric vest (44watts) just shit the bed. I'm going to open it up and attempt to repair it, but in the meantime I want to get something new. Eclipse stopped making electric clothing acouple years after I bought mine. I know that Widder,Gerbings & Chille are the big names. are there others?

    I ride in extreme cold, am leaning towards a gerbings jacket liner.

    how are they worn? I always wore my eclipse over a t shirt and under a thermal/fleece sweatshirt then my outer wear.

    If I get gloves, how do they connect.

    Currently I have SAE type connector is there an advantage toa BMW type?

    HEATED CLOTHING

    I just got a new Gerbing's after selling my old one last year.

    I am disappointed they switched from the SAE type.

    I had a single SAE connector that was fused for the old jacket, and I was able to plug in either my battery tender or jacket into that same plug. Now I have to have two.

    Not really a big deal but a bit annoying.

    Love the heated sleeves & collar though. The collar is awesome.

    Randy I just bought the Gerbings heated Jacket and I can't say enough good things about it. I dropped the coin on the thermostat also.

    I am going to get the pants soon I think. Seems like the right thing to do.

    The gerbings jacket has heated arms and a heated collar which works mint.

    The jacket really packs well to. I will fit in your tank bag no problem.
