Gerbing 12V Leather Clip Case (Single / Portable)
It does the job... I guess.
I ordered this for the same reason everyone else did, to wrangle my temp controller. It holds my temp controller well and I clip it to my jean pocket for ease of access but the magnetic clasp never stays closed. The case holds the controller well without this clasp but it is annoying that they overlooked this silly little feature that could have just been a real snap. Honestly, I might just throw a zip-tie around the whole thing as long as it doesn't mess with the clip. I would not recommend this product for the simple reason of the silly snap failure.

Just got my new gloves, controller and holder and took them out for a ride. This case fits the controller perfectly. Responding to other reviewers: I don't hook controllers to my belt where they would be hard to get to under my jacket, I hook the controller to the upper left leg portion of my chaps for a perfect location to reach the controller knob. Also since this is a leather case a little bending to help form the cover solved what other reviews said is a problem with the magnet snap. I found that once the leather allows the magnet clasp circles to fully engage the flap stays closed and is not a problem. Great price and value!

Keeps the temp controller accessible.
This temp controller holder does need a break-in period for the flap to stay closed. The flap doesn't want to stay "latched" (it's a magnetic latch) all the time. A slightly stronger magnet would work wonders.

If you have a temp controller then get this product. It is so much more convenient than what I did with my previous temp controller that I accidentally broke. I probably wouldn't have broken it if I had this.
I clip it to my jacket or pant pockets when I ride and it stays right in place. Just as others have said the magnet clip button is worthless but doesn't hinder the use of the temp controller and holds it in place. I would suggest using a rubber-band or putting in an actual click button if you know how. I might actually do that or velcro.

The magnetic closure does not work.
The magnetic closure on the flap is not strong enough to keep the top flap/cover closed.

Could Have Been Perfect
If this had a real snap to keep the flap closed, instead of the non-functional magnetic clasp, it would be perfect.
It is a must-have for keeping the controller handy. It really doesn't matter if the flap doesn't stay closed. It just would be nice if it did.

Exactly what I wanted for my Heated Liner
I have a Gerbing heated liner that I purchased this product for. Its very easy to use and is a necessity if you have Gerbing gear. I strongly recommend it. I used my $10 Revzilla points to buy it so it was a really easy decision.

Good product, a must have for the temperature controller!
Good product, but clipping it to my belt would make the controller inaccessible while riding. I plan to have a loop stitched to my jacket which would solve this issue. The only other con I can give this is that the cover is held closed with a magnetic tab where I would have preferred a conventional snap button to hold it closed more positively. Still, a must have for the portable temperature controller!
