Gerbing 12V Portable Dual Temp Controller
Laugh at the cold.
With the unit mounted on the handlebars & drawing power through the 12V adaptor, warm 'n comfy is as simple as it gets. Separate controls for the jacket liner & gloves make for a superlative ride when the temps drop. Worth every penny!

If you employ Gerbing's equipment, you MUST have a temperature controller. Period.
The controller knobs are easily accessible even with winter gloves equipped. The LED lights give you a nice visual representation of the temperature setting - higher (frequent blinking) or lower (sparse blinking).

Essential addition to jacket
This gear is essential to enjoying the jacket. Heat adjusts quickly. Knobs are easy to find when keeping eyes on the road. Easy install even with limited knowledge of battery hook ups. Would like to see future models smaller and more adaptable to bike, biker, etc... (and I don't like the color red on the liner for the neck - that's a super personal pref).
I totally recommend this for comfort; you won't get too cold and you won't get too hot.

Good but second one
Gerbings gear is first rate but this is my second controller. The first one shorted out and heated up enough to melt the plastic case. I've never heard of any one else's doing that but it was my experience fe. Good gear but not as durable as I would like.

Dual temp controller
Very easy to use and control the temperature for both socks and gloves

Does what it's supposed to do
I don't know whether I'll expand beyond my heated jacket liner, but I went with the dual-controller option based on RevZilla's recommendation. The controller does exactly what it's supposed to do, allowing the user to easily dial up the desired heat level. It took some experimenting to decide where to attach the controller using the accessory case. (As I stated in my review of the leather clip case, I don't understand why Gerbing couldn't just put a clip on the back of the controller and do away with the need for the case.) I finally ended up either clipping it onto my tank bag or, when the bag isn't on the bike, attaching the controller to the bag's mounting strap. It helps to be able to see which knob I'm turning when adjusting the heat level. A couple other minor gripes: The controller is bulky and has lots of wiring dangling from it. Also, it's initially confusing that one indicator light displays green when it's on and the other is yellow; to me, yellow means "caution," not "working properly."

Works as advertised.
Separate controls for gloves & jacket liner are good feature, allowing you to adjust to your comfort level.

This control works great and is need to not get overheated
This control is necessary to control the temp of the jacket. Because of the wiring it is hard to find a good place to put this controller for easy reach. The case is a almost must have because of the belt clip.
