Firstgear Remote Dual Heat Troller
Easy Installation and Works Great
I purchased this controller for my wife and myself. We use them to control our gloves and insoles independently. Installation was simple and clean since the controller is wireless. Now, comfort control is at our finger-tips.

came to me paired to receiver, took a short ride and worked just like my wired controller, highly recommend Revzilla for quick shipping and price.

This one works as advertised.
This is my second one. The first one I bought a year ago and could not get to work, so I returned it. Thought I'd give it another try and this one works perfectly with my Gerbings heated gear. Fewer wires to deal with and can put in a place that makes it easy to see and operate.. Well worth the price. Very happy with it.

Works right out of box
Looking to eliminate some of the wires attaching me to the bike during winter riding.
The controllers works great. Even with the mismatched heated gear. Sync'd out of the box , plug in power to heated gear and instant heat.
Receiver is heavy and need to find a better placement. Currently it rides in a pocket in the center of my chest. It does take a bit for me to forget it's there.

Works very well with Gerbing's newest Jacket liner and G3 Gloves.
I went for years with the original (1997) Gerbing Jacket Liner and gloves with only an on/off switch. The newest microwire gear just puts out way too much heat when on full, so having a heat controller is a must have.
Firstgear's wireless Remote Dual Heat Troller is easy to install, plug and play, and the remote sits nicely on top of the hydraulic clutch reservoir. The units came pre-paired so installation was done in under 10 minutes on a 2010 Goldwing.

Excellent product; could stand to use a better mounting feature
Firstgear remote dual heat trollers connect easily, work perfectly, and are very well made. Far more convenient than the wired dual controls from Gerbing (we use Gerbing gear with our remote controls), but my only reason not to give 5 stars across the board is the lack of better mounting options. Firstgear includes an adhesive velcro patch with the kit, but I really don't want to GLUE something onto my bike, even if it's just a square inch of hook-and-loop! The included wrist strap is pointless, since nobody's going to ride with the control dangling from their arm.
I resolved my mounting dilemma by using a band of soft, flexible velcro cable-wrap (easily found at home improvement stores, etc.) horizontally around the control unit (with soft, loop-side facing out so as not to scratch paint), then another piece vertically around the control unit once (weaving it through the horizontal piece to add more stability), then a couple times around both the control and my handlebar. Placing the unit close to the left grip gave the unit both convenient access and added stability from being moved around by vibration, etc.
I wish I didn't have to jerry-rig a mount for this otherwise awesome control, but it still deserves a five-star rating for quality manufacturing, thoughtful details (fully waterproof control and receiver units, LED function lights, etc.), and excellent heat control.

The biggest problem with any heat troller whether it is added to the bike, attached to your gear, or a remote like this one is where do I put it. Well with this one you can put the remote in your pocket or attach it anywhere using velcro or even better 3m Dual Lock.
At for the troller, what can I say it all worked with no fuss. The days of syncing the remote seem to be over. Just wired it, plugged everything in, turned the dials and viola heat. Don't know if Warm'n'Safe (manufacturer), Firstgear (distributor), or Revzilla does the syncing but it is appreciated.
Revzilla is awesome and fast as usual...what more can I say.

Eliminates most of the wire hassle.
I needed to transfer my Gerbing controllers, one mounted in the dash of my old bike and the other portable over to my new bike. I was tired of having two controllers with the associated extra wires. When I realized the FirstGear Remote Dual Heat Troller would allow me to easily control my vest and gloves and have only one wire between me and the bike, I immediately began shopping. The product does exactly what the description says it does and the service from Revzilla is excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this Troller again. I will always take a look at Revzilla whenever I need motorcycle gear.
