Picked up a jacket liner and gloves from the Gerbing's stand at this weekend's Atlanta bike show. The liner originally offered didn't fit anything like the similarly sized demo version and - after rummaging around for a few moments - the sales associate informed us that it was part of their overseas production. She subsequently located a domestic product which fitted just like the demo. I don't have any label photos unfortunately, so you'll have to take my word for it
Plugged it all up last night and initial impressions suggest that the liner is significantly warmer than either of the Aerostich vests I own, while the gloves appear to heat up much faster than the older tech Gerbing's products.
