this one of the Microwire jacket liners, got it thru Revzilla last year. Heated gear makes all the difference :)

Spummer,

I wrote you a "Thank You" note right after I read you post. Rarely do my posts seem to go to the either but this is one. Yours was a superb post.

It also removed "country of origin" from my consideration if all are from "over there". Really, thanks.

John

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.

I must admit that I had mixed feelings about the gloves when I first got them.

Very stiff and yes made in Pakistan.

Now I really don't care where they are made except I would be happier if they were made in the US, of course I ride a German Motorcycle and not a Harley so I guess I'm talking out of my ass. Anyway after a few thousand miles the gloves have grown on me. They have softened up a bit and the gauntlets fit OVER my Stitch jacket and I suspect they will only get better with time.

So in general I'm happy enough with the products that I just ordered the pants and socks to fill out the set. I got the wind blocker Gen four pants since even though I ride in the Stitch most of the time when I'm not I'm in denim jeans and they block like zero wind!

Well I went for my lungs and got the wind block pants and socks. I must say that they are comfortable under my suite down into the low 20s.

I'm curious, how warm do your gloves get on the highest setting. On high the jacket, pants, and socks are to hot and I must turn them down. The gloves not so much. Warm but not hot.

I have a W&S jacket, and it's time to buy gloves.

Who has the least bulky, waterproof gloves? My first preference is W&S, due to good customer service and overall satisfaction. However, non-bulky gloves are important to me.

I just picked up a set of Rider Classic heated gloves from W&S. The heat these gloves produce is awesome. I have not ridden in temps below 40 yet, but I can not see any reason to ever need to use more than 25% of what these can produce.

They are about the same bulk as a non heated winter glove, maybe a little bit slimmer, but not by much.

I wish I would have bought heated gear 10 years ago.

So on full setting are you saying the gloves are HOT? Mine are only warm.

PM heat-troller_mike from WnS on here. I've seen posts on here from talking about getting some gloves from their manufacturing facility with the wrong resistor in them, so the gloves don't get as hot as they should. If that's what you have, I believe they'll update them for free.
