Gerbing 12V Leather Clip Case (Dual/Portable)
Fell apart after a few months
I started using the Gerbing heated gear last fall for my hour-long daily commute in pacific northwest weather. The heated gear worked wonderfully and held up well, but the case for the temp controller didn't. After about 3 months the case fell right off of the clip when I attached it to my jacket. Examining it, the underlying metal of the clip was rusted and the case seemed to have rotted some due to moisture. I had to jury-rig it to keep the pieces together, but doing so got it to last the rest of the rainy season. It's probably too much to expect it to stand up the the extremes that I put it through. If you plan to use it in the rain I suggest taking it off of your jacket or pants daily to let it dry out. Or even better, clip it on under your gear so it doesn't get wet.
By the way, I did just buy a replacement and plan to follow my own advice.

Looks and works great.
Fit perfectly to the Gerbing heat controller and can clip controller on your belt to have better access to adjust the temperature. Looked everywhere for this and revzilla had the best price and availiblity. Don't know why i went so long without heated gear. Can't ride without now. Definitely would recommend. Shipped out same day i ordered it and received it a few days. Thanks revzilla.

Needs a snap.
Fit my controller like a glove however the magnet closure does not work. The magnet is too light. This closure needs a snap closure to be perfect. I will put one on.

This product is okay
I was disappointed that the closure was magnetic rather than a snap. The flap tends to come open but the controller fits snug enough that it will not come out. I have considered fastening the flap closed with a cable tie.

Makes Carrying Controller Much Easier
This is a great bargain, it definitely makes it much easier to carry the heat controller inside your riding jacket. I have plenty of pockets inside my jacket, but the wires coming out of the bottom of the dual-temp controller make using those pockets awkward (you have to put the controller in the pocket upside down, and then the knobs are buried at the bottom of the pocket). The clip on this case makes it very easy to clip the controller to a pocket, and it makes the temp knobs on top more accessible. The case is inexpensive and fits the controller perfectly, don't hesitate to order one of these when you buy a controller, it's certainly worth it.

You need it, but...
The case doesn't cost much and it's convenient to use. However, I don't see why Gerbing couldn't just put a clip on the back of the heat controller and do away with the need for the case.

A must for holding heat controller
Functions as designed. Allows you to clip your dual controller conveniently in a multitude of locations. Holds unit securely. I can clip it to my tank bag for easy access or to my left pocket if not using the tank bag.

Overall very good.
My only complaint is that the flap will not stay closed without adding something such as a rubber band. Either the flap needs to be slightly longer or the closure (magnet) needs to be stronger or replaced with a snap.
