Gerbing 12V Hybrid Heated Insoles
Looks wel made and very comfortable
I had Tourmaster heated insoles for 2 years (not too much use) and one of them quit working this year so I decided to go with Gerbing's to match my jacket and pant liners I have had for many years. These fit great, you can trim a bit off if they are too long for your boots, and feel great so there is no hurry to remove them when the day warms up. I'd recommend using them with a dual heat controller, or on their own. My boots are really the only gear that hangs out in the air stream and I found times I'd like to boost the heat on the insoles without the jacket and gloves getting warmer.

Have not used them yet but looking forward to it
I had a pair of heated insoles but they finally wore out I am looking forward to using these they seem like a very good product. I will write more after hunting season.

Keep your feet warm in the coldest of conditions
I've been riding with these down to 35F or so at highway speeds. I don't have a proper foot fairing, just cylinder heads that semi obstruct the wind randomly, but not significantly.
I haven't needed to max the innersoles out yet - they actually burn my feet on max and I turn them down. They work as you'd expect, and are still comfortable to walk in for reasonable periods of time.
If you are running a Gerbing heated jacket make sure you use a dual zone controller. I find that my foot and jacket temps are totally unrelated.
It's nice that they toss in the extension cables to run from your jacket or bike to your shoes. You run this cable through your pants so that your boots can connect to the bottom of your pants. Or, buy their heated pants, although I once had them and found them to be overkill for the temps I'm riding in (lowest 20F or so).
In terms of sizing I bought the XXL innersoles for my US 12 / metric 46 feet. The sizing was good and I did not need to trim the innersoles, however they do have an area marked off on the top of the innersole as safe to trim (i.e. you won't cut off electrical wiring).
Don't forget to do the math on your bike's charging system and don't overrun it with heated gear. Otherwise you'll be feeling great beating the weather and riding for hours... until you try to restart your bike at a stop and the battery was dead. Consider having a voltmeter installed so you know what's going on if you plan to do significant riding.

Keeps the feet toasty
I ordered this after not being able to get the Gerbing socks to fit right. Even though they only heat the bottom, the insoles keep my feet warm during my rides (I wear uninsulated leather boots and ride a bike with no fairings). While I won't be going on any ruck marches, the insoles are comfortable enough to walk around a motorcycle show. I see no reason these won't last for seasons to come. As far as fit, I did not have to trim the insoles even though I wear a size 12 and ordered the 2XL.

Nice product; works as advertised
I run these insoles on an older heated vest with the power distribution unit in the vest. I have a one-zone controller. They work fine and look durable. They keep my feet comfortable. I did not need to trim them to fit my size 44 boots; the sizing chart was accurate. I first tried them out on a 6-hour drive in temperatures in the mid to high 30s. It still had to stop to warm up, but I no longer need to stop because of cold feet. This product will extend your driving range in cold weather. It was easy to replace the fuse on the controller wire.

Gerbing heated insoles can be purchased at several outlets. What keeps me coming back to RevZilla is the excellent customer service. NOBODY beats RevZilla's customer service.

Toasty feet are a very good thing!
I bought the Gerbing's Hybrid Heated Insoles becuase winter and spring riding up here in the pacific northwest can be a mixed bag, mostly cold and wet. After removing the insole in my Tourmaster response 2.0 boots and trimming these a litlle to fit,installation was super easy. They plug right into the rest of my gerbings gear and deliver just the right amount of heat. What a nice improvement to my riding experience! With a little more support aound the outer edge of the heels, I would never think they were anything other than stock insoles(except for the heat of course!).
