Heated gear.
I know this has been hashed to death so I'll keep it simple:

I've read most of the posts but I want to cut through all of it.

Would you buy Gerbing, Warm and Safe, or something else.

Please no drama: lol3

Warm n Safe is my choice.

Gerbings is more widely avilable on retail level if you want to get into a shop to try on and buy.

Don't think you will go wrong with either choice.

Comfortably snug over a light base layer is the best fit for maximum warmth.

Gerbing, because thats what I have now and I have been happy with it.

Happy with Gerbings :1drink

I'm happy with my Tourmaster Synergy vest, but I've not tried any others.

I like my powerlet jacket with the wireless controller. Very nice. It is better than my old gerbings, but that was not microwire, so it is not really a fair comparison.

warm n safe, because it is so damn reliable, and well you can upgrade for a small fee every couple years just for fun:lol3 Plus, Mike seems like a cool guy that actually rides and you can speak directly with him. Give it a try; send him an email and see if it takes more than a couple hrs. for a response. He's a little salty, but that is what makes him cool:lol3

I have both a Gerbing and a Tourmaster liner, happy with both. Have the Gerb single and dual controller and use my Tourmaster gloves with both liners.
If I had none now, I'd buy either one.

Warm and Safe. Because :

- you can get a waterproof jacket liner

- I had a Gerbing vest. Disliked it enough to sell it and buy my Widder.

What about Storm rider? Are they the only ones that have a fabric "heating element" and don't use wires? Can they all be washed and drip dried? I am leaning towards the Storm so if there is any bad news out there I sure would appreciate the heads-up.

I have Gerbing and I'm happy with it!
But, as a universal caveat, carry non-heated equipment that will get you home if that stuff fails...
Reserve chute, belt and suspenders, etc.
Think, "What if...".

Gerbings I have had nothing but luck also I was at Americade two years ago at the Gerbings bothe talking to a guy for about 15 minutes about their products and come to find out he was the owner. He was genuinely excited about their new products coming out and he rides.

I'm quite pleased with the Powerlet jacket, glove liner, and wireless dual remote.
