Gerbing Men’s Heated Jacket Liner

For the longest time I wore a hoodie under my jacket and that was pretty good for keeping me warm, at least that is what I thought.  Then I bit the bullet and bought this heated liner.  Wow what a difference, and that is without even plugging it in. Literally 90%of the time I do not plug this in, I find dealing with the controller and wires a pain in general with heated gear so I pretty much don’t ever plug any of it in.  I find it’s just not necessary.

Performance

Outstanding ability to keep your body heat in.  The insulation design of this heated liner is such that even without power going to it, you are kept incredibly warm.  It’s nice when you do plug it in and to be honest I enjoy it on full high if I do, it’s like being surrounded by a warm electric blanket.  Keeping your core warm makes all the difference.  Your feet, hands, face etc… all feel warmer when your core is warm.  This heated liner does the job with ease.  High 30’s and above there is no need to plug it in, but if you are riding in the low 30’s for lower for an extended amount of time, go ahead and plug in.  It will be a very comfortable ride.  This liner is not water proof, but does block the wind.  Even though there are wires running throughout the heated liner, you don’t notice them while wearing it.  When pugged in the heat is very evenly distributed.

Appearance

Generally not visible since this is a heated liner and your jacket is over it, but it’s an attractive layer if you do end up wearing it by itself.

Durability

Still on the first heated liner I have ever purchased and that was over 3 years and 60,000 miles ago. There is no noticeable wear on the seams, sleeves, collar or pockets.  The zipper is high quality and has held up well. I have stuffed this into small areas of my saddle bags and crumpled it up many times, the wires still seem to work fine.
