Gerbing's Heated Vest Liner 4.9 5 9 9
Great product This is the first heated product I've ever bought. I I just wanted to have something for those unexpected cool temperatures on long trips. This product was a bit spends for what I needed, but all reviews said it was the best quality. They were right. I was a bit skeptical about the big collar. It looks kinda dorky, but it's soo warm on the neck. Highly recommend this product. I ordered a large. I'm usually tight on a large and wear an XL in revit. The large seemed a bit big on me. Especially because they say the heated gear should fit snug. March 23, 2013
Great electric vest An excellent choice for anyone looking for a heated vest. April 2, 2012
Really like the turtle neck on this vest. Three things I really like about the vest are that it gets hot rapidly, the heat is distributed evenly, and the turtle neck is great because it prevents cold air getting down into my coat which means that I don't have to wear something else to protect my neck.

Everything I needed ! Just used my vest in 40 degree weather riding on the interstate, was everything I expected, kept me nice and warm and that was on the low setting on my temp controller, have no doubt that it will keep me warm in 20 degree weather. Very happy with it's fit and finish December 28, 2011
Most Versital Gerbins I own I have the Gerbins Jacket, Pants and Vest. I use to Vest the most. It is perfect for short commutes all winter and it does not tax the bikes electrical system like a full heated outfit would. Yea, my arms and legs get cold on the ride into work but you are not frezzing cold all over like you would be without the heated vest. For touring where you are riding all day I use the full Heated pants and jacket. For commuting the Vest and heated grips are a great intro into the world of not frezzing any more! December 27, 2011
Gerbings Vest I have a 40" chest and the small was the right fit-snug w/o being tight. This vest is the difference between cold and comfort. I routinely ride in the teens and this coupled with the gloves is the ticket. December 27, 2011
Makes for a toasty ride. I got this vest to extend my riding season. I needed something to take the bite out of the early morning commute to work, and this fits the bill. I got the small, and it seems just a little too big. But I like my vest to fit tight. Just so I can get good heat transfer. But it stills does its job well. It is quite warm, and I doubt I will get cold, even when the thermometer drops below freezing. It just reminds me now of how cold my hands are. It looks like I will be looking at the matching gloves now! December 9, 2011
Warmth in all the right places I purchased the Gerbing heated vest to replace one I lost (different manufacture). As promised, the vest provides near instant heat and is by far warmer than my last one. The heated collar works great and is far less bulky than my fleece neck warmer. When in my saddlebag it takes up less space since it's "packable". For my setup the wires on the controller seem a bit long, however it's not an issue. Gerbings G3 gloves are next on my list to keep me warm and riding in comfort when the temps dip into the low 30's. December 5, 2011

Francis G: Good reviews Oct 16, 2013
Francois d asked: The "connections and controller" video says to avoid the accessory power port on the bike and to connect directly to the battery. Why? Isn't this exactly the type of thing the accessory port is provided for? My 2013 BMW has a port just next to the ignition switch and it would be ideal. If this is a fuse issue, surely you can provide an inline fuse? Dec 3, 2013

Chris B: Gerbing and Revzilla offer a specific BMW port adapter to connect the controller in that way. I think The recommendation for the direct wiring is to keep the std. .power port available for the more regular uses. Most batteries on bikes tend to be under or near the drivers seat, so the connector would be more convienient. I myself use a Kuryakin cigarette lighter port mounted on the handlebars. (gotta love that perfect chrome) However with the controller on my belt it's awkward and odd looking to have this wiring draped from my hip the lighter port. Here in Dallas I ride year round with maybe 2 weeks out of year where it's cold enough to warrant use of heated wear. 50 out of 52 weeks a year dictated keeping it simple seemed my best choice. so if you are in a couple month of cold a year location of the connection to the controller may be a SERIOUS consideration.

Henry G: I purchased this same item for my wife. We have a 2013 K1600 GTL and she uses the accessory port under the seat with no issues. I would just make sure that you calculate the overall draw from all of the devices you have connected. Your bike's manual will tell you the maximum draw from the CANBUS (if you have one) that is allowed. Dec 3, 2013

Claude V: Hello François,
I bought this vest in early October and have used it riding my BMW K1200RS. I plug it into the accessory port without any problem. The accessory ports are fused so there is no need to plug into the battery posts. BMW has thought of this before you need to worry.

Francois d: Thanks for all the answers. According to my user manual, the fuse on the accessory port for my 2013 BMW F700GS is 5A, which is just enough for this vest. Since I'm not planning to use anything else at the same time, the accessory port should work just fine. Thanks again! Dec 9, 2013

Richard B: No problem using the port, these things don't draw that much amperage. Might need to refuse the port circuit but not likely necessary. You will need a port adapter or change the coax type plug on the gerbing line. Dec 3, 2013

David D: I put my plug in on a H-D Roadglide with an inline fuse on the rear heat shield(plastic). I think you should be able to use the port to do this, but it is a BMW. Dec 3, 2013

Seth D: I haven't owned a bike with an accessory port, but no, I don't think this is what that port is intended for. Your accessory port is probably fine for a Gps, radar detector, cell phone charger or the like. However heated gear draws much more current than those devices. The heated gear MIGHT TECHNICALLY work in the port, but you would be pushing your luck. Something you never want to do with electricity or motorcycles. All gerbings gear comes with a wire harness and inline fuses. It's actually a very easy hookup. Dec 3, 2013

A shopper asked: The connection video for this product says to avoid the accessory port on the bike and wire directly to the battery. Why? The point of the accessory port is to allow easy connection and it seems odd to recommend avoiding it. I have a 2013 BMW with an accessory port right up near the ignition switch and it would be ideal to use. Dec 3, 2013

steve s: I think it may be for two reasons.

1. Some bikes may have insufficient gauge wire to the accessory port to handle the large amp draw of heated clothing and would fry the plug's feed wires or pop the fuses. Yours may be OK. ?? But you'd still have to find an accessory plug aftermarket that could handle the amps.
2. When I get off your bike I often forget that I'm attached to the bike via this cord and I end up pulling the wires apart at the stock round quick release plug. If my attachment was only at the accessory outlet I would have a broken plug several times over.

Bill V: The old accessory plug on the BMWs would work fine, but the new models like your 2013 will not due to the Can-Bus electrical. Very easy to hard wire direct to the battery on the BMWs. Jan 20, 2014

Thomas R: The BMW Canbus system won't allow you to run more than a few amps before shutting down. Direct hook up to battery or to a fuse block from the battery will solve this. Dec 3, 2013

A shopper asked: The Gerbing jacket has the power connection for gloves near the cuffs eliminating the need to snake a power cord for gloves through your jacket. Does the vest have the same or similar feature or will you need to use the power cord supplied with the gloves snaked through your jacket to power the gloves with this vest? Feb 28, 2013

RevZilla: The vest does not have the same easy connection for gloves as the jacket does. This is because the easy connection is built into the sleeves of the jacket. The vest does not have sleeves to accommodate an easy connection. Mar 1, 2013

Measurements for Proper Fit:

It's best to have someone do the measuring, relax and enjoy. Let your arms hang naturally by your sides. Have the measuring tape fit snugly against the body and even to the ground. Liners are meant to be worn under outerwear clothing.

  • Chest - Measure around the fullest area of the chest, holding tape firm and level. Hold arms out, place tape, drop arms and record measurement. 
  • Waist - Measure loosely at your natural waistline, typically above your beltline and closer to your bellybutton.
  • Hips - Measure around the fullest part of seat while standing and while sitting. Record the higher number.
  • Outseam - Measure from the top of the waistband to the bottom of the ankle, remember pants and pant liners will lose some length when in the sitting or riding position.
  • Sleeve Length - Measure from the top of the shoulder bone to the bottom of the wrist bone. Measure both arms as one arm may be longer than the other.
