Thanks for the write up JC and Cap. May even be worth looking into here in Florida since it doubles as a rain suit. Believe it or not it can get cold and wet here!  :P

JC, those dealer pics don't look like a Harley dealer.....just sayin... :huepfenlol2:

Thinkin about crossing over for a bit of a thrill.......... :zroflmao: :zroflmao:

We were looking for the BMW style pigtail for our heated gear.  It was Sun and the BMW dealership was closed.  For what it's worth.....Cycle Gear doesn't carry much of any type of heated gear wiring stuff. :nixweiss:

For what it's worth Cycle Gear doesn't carry much of anything I need.
Found out they carried Redline so went there to pick some up.
They had 1 quart, manager said a shipment was coming in the next day.
Next day I stopped by and they had gotten in another quart. I was like WTH, manager called headquarters and was told that store was scheduled to only carry two quarts at a time. No more Cycle Gear for me.

Excellent review JCV.  I just bought the Gerbing liner and gloves (my first for heated apparel) and haven't had the chance to try them out yet.  However, looking at your pictures I may have to place the jacket and pant suit on my "after-Christmas" list.  Excellent thread...thanks.

Happy Thanksgiving,
Randy

On our journey through Kings Canyon-Sequoia and Yosemite National Parks, Terrie informed me that we've lost our social status in life (whatever that was).....that we now look like BMW riders. :zroflmao: :zroflmao: :zroflmao:

Hey, when you're totally comfortable from your feet to your head and it's below freezing out......who cares what you look like.  Our priorities change with age. :P      And the icing on the cake is that it's so much more light weight and comfortable than leathers! :2vrolijk_21:

Thanks for the review.

I just looking at a liner right now, but the ballistic jackets are nice looking... and my leathers are getting a bit long in the tooth

Anyways I stopped worrying what I looked like when I bought my Harely :D

I may have retired from the Military after 27 years... but I am not that old... yet

I might get that for my 75 birthday if they have a CVO version :D

Hey JC, I was curious what size jacket and pants Terrie bought?  She looks to be about my size and from the Gerbing website it looks like I need small to extra small.
