One would hope.....
Yeah the heat just seems to lengthen the usabilty of the bikes tremendously.  And that technology seems to be getting better.

Mine are "liners" so I wear my leathers over them.

JCZ never heard you had to where something over them.  They do say to wear something under them so you don't get burned by the heat wires,  in fact several people wear just the liner as their outer and nothing else.  Will see Dotty Gerbing next week when I pick uo my ultimate jacket and pants and will make a point of asking her.

JC like you, I have liners, I have some specific pairs of jeans (loose fit) that I wear over my pants liners, my winter coat has a zip out lining that I remove when using my jacket liner. I bought my gear at a BMW dealer who was adament in saying this was not "road gear" and should consider this as a replacement for my thermal undies with the exception of the leather gloves (I hate them any way too bulky can't hardly push buttons).

JC

I saw this on Gerbings website and may answer your question. [smiley=nixweiss.gif]

How you wear your heated clothing with other clothes can either enhance or detract from your overall comfort. Follow the tips below to obtain the most warming heat.

Jacket liners, pant liners, and vests work best when worn under windproof clothing. Wind takes the heat away.
Our outerwear is windproof due to the urethane coating on the fabric.
Wear only one layer under Gerbing's clothing. A long-sleeved turtleneck under a coat or liner is ideal.
Pant liners don't work well under denim pants. If you wear denim its best to wear Gerbing's outerwear.
If its real cold outside, wearing raingear enhances the warming effect by sealing out more wind.

                                                                                          See Ya!    JR [smiley=laugh.gif]

I have widder electric gloves and vest and have ridden in 22F no problem... Keeps you warm. On a another note you can buy a hot wheels battery charger for way less  that puts out 1.2 amps @ 12 volts. I bought one at like toys r us or something and have been using it for almost 10 years as my "battery tender"

I have seen widder clothing and gloves available through Whitehorse Press. Found some links to their cold weather gear.

Glad to know somebody has tried and likes the Widder products.

The cat's out of the bag on the charger.  There is hope for better prices.

Ok JCZ here is your answer on wearing something over your heated liner.  She said that the material and especially the seams aren't made to take the stress of the wind and the seams and material will fail.  Plus without having something over it you lose all the heat.  Hope that explains it for you.
