Owwwwwww! Now there is a salient point to clear up.

Please do that for me. I have had no luck researching that info. But, both these companies have at least a "good" reputation. My decision was based on customer service and report. WnS is headquartered in Portland and I tell them the same thing I tell all the merchants-- "you don't have to be cheaper, just close. I try to buy local" and at least made in USA. I ride a Triumph, by the way, so there is some flex in my commitment.

Last I read, Gerbing was moving (trying to move) production back stateside. Odd that they don't make any mention of it on their site though.

They have moved to Stoneville, NC, about 20 miles from here.

AFAIK

For those of you in the UK there's a group buy going on for Gerbing's XR12 gloves. RRP is 159.99 and if we get enough buyers they'll go down to 99. They're currently at 109.99.

The buy expires at 12:00 (lunch time) on 27/10/2012.

The link is http://www.buyapowa.com/ref/oVsLOd

Hope I'm not breaking any rules by posting but thought it timely and appropriate. I have no connection whatsoever with any involved parties and just thought it was a good price.

Warm n Safe

Warms is safe when riding and the Warm n Safe gear is excellent. A1!
Wonderful gear. 3000 plus miles 42-80 degrees with the jacket/gloves and dual remote. What a treat.

I sent the ultimate touring gloves back and got the liners and I am much happier with the liners. I have a lot of wind protection plus I do not like a lot of bulk in the gloves. The tgp rainier jacket does not require a long glove.

Don't forget the adv discount with warm n safe and the outstanding customer service.

So now I have used the jacket liner and gloves with the dual zone remote controller twice and I must say what a treat!

The jacket liner at about one third setting was comfortable at 70 mph but when I slowed down or stopped I must say it
was to hot. The gloves were toasty. It was in the low 50'd F that day. I used the gloves alone with a different jacket, I got the long cables also, and I didn't think they got hot enough for a ride to work one morning until I realized that without the controller I was on the default setting, again one third power if I remember. That ride was in the high 30's F.

So far I must say I'm impressed!

This is one of those pieces of equipment that everyone says you should have but you don't listen. Than when you get
it you wonder why you waited so long? So I'm thinking my days of stopping and holding onto the cylinder trying to
warm up my hands up is over.

I hope!

Spummerr,

Not to pick on you. I would expect this from anyone:

Stating that WarmNSafe is a foreign made product when in fact it is Made In the USA is a sort of defamation of character. You need to set the record straight for yours and theirs sake. Perhaps in a separate thread. You get a very wide read here, world wide actually, and while the forum is not "Made in the USA" it seems to have a real concern with truth in advertising and providing valid information to the members and public. Maybe some would not make a purchase if the item was made in the USA. That has to be possible, in theory at least.

Certainly do appreciate your participation and congrats on getting a product you enjoy and that is functioning for you.

John

heated gear

I find that the Warm n Safe is heated all over and that the high output 105 watt model is very warm. I also have a pair of the Gerbings heated pants liners. They have areas of heated wire on the fronts of the thighs and the lower leg that are warm. But everwhere else is unheated. The thigh areas heat is good, the lower leg heating area was almost undetectable to me. 30-40-degree ride.
Aerostich tech2 liner has a much lower watt draw and is not very warm even in the insulated jacket.
Gerbings T5 gloves are not very warm. They must be a european stlyle, the gauntlets are very tight and only fit under a jacket and not over the tops of the sleeves.
The amount of heat from the Warm n Safe was a pleasant revelation to me.

Table,

It isn't for me to spring into rebuttal action when another says "you haven't provided proof". Back in history, the Brits had an attitude of "I said it and that is true till you prove me wrong". They are sort of arrogant, in that regard. It was the "ever vexed with an inferiority complex Germans" that started Foot Notes that would verify a point or facts expressed in the text. Lets share this adventure: you find where W&S isn't made domestic and I will take on the other not being made foreign...or vice versa. I don't feel any obligation with this but I will offer anyway.

Thanks for your comment and observation. Everything sold domestic MUST state the nation of manufacturer. Did you know that there is a city in Japan named Usa? So look closely.

John
