Firstgear Women's Heated Jacket Liner
Warms fast and in the right places
Comfort is very good. This jacket warms quickly and heats well, especially in the arms where a lot of wind is usually present. It is not bulky and only one light layer needed underneath. It's so nice to ride in the cold not feeling like the Michelin Man!

Quality is Evident
The toughest part was sizing. According to the chart, I am a large. But I wear an XL in most items. I ordered the XL and it fits great. Liner works as advertized and fits well under my Aerostich Road Crafter. Simliar in bulk to your average sweatshirt or fleece. Collar is very nice.

Great Fit, Great Comfort
This jacket along with a set of FG rider heated gloves is my first experience with heated riding gear (excepting heated grips!).
Wow, nice and cozy. I love this jacket inside my Aerostitch. low 30's and I want to keep riding right on past my destination. It really makes a difference. It is also nice that it is wired for the gloves & that the glove circuit can be isolated from the jacket so you can run them on independent heat control. Unfortunately for me the gloves themselves failed after only 9 days of use, but the Jacket is still working excellently.

Money well spent!
Opted for this liner because a friend has one and commutes by bike every day. So I knew it worked well. The real test was an Iron Butt from Washington DC to Miami FL while headed to Key West. 2013 was an unusually cold November. When I left on Thanksgiving morning it was 19*f at 4am. I never saw above freezing until I hit Fayetteville NC and it was in the low 40's in Titusville FL.
Granted, I had the whole heated ensemble- liner, gloves, pant liner and socks but I kept toasty warm the whole way. Over 1,050 miles and cold was one thing I didn't think about.

The cat's pajamas ....
I was a little skeptical at first about the effectiveness and comfort of heated clothes. After 2 rides, I admit that I am now convinced that it works.
Both rides were around high 30's and dry. I felt comfortable and toasty the whole time. The jacket liner sizing works great for me. I wear size 38US/48EU jackets and size Small liner feels snug and perfect.

Did a Thanksgivings ride through AZ hitting the GC and many high elevation mountain crossings. Total was over 1100 miles in 4 days. Was worried about the cold and a recent snow fall, so I bought the whole set up, 90 watt jacket, gloves, pants, socks and dual controller. Kept me toasty warm when the weather was high 20s and low 30s. The Jacket is a liner, so it fits a little tight in the waist. I have long arms so I got the large/tall so I had the extra length in the sleeves. I wore a thermal shirt with a tee over it, then the liner and my leather vest over the liner. Finished with a leather jacket. Seriously, I was never cold. I'm ready for more winter rides. Highly recommend.

Perfect jacket liner
This jacket is excellent for the money and it comes with the controller. I wear a tshirt this jacket and my leather it 20 degree weather and warm cannot feel and chill covers neck also. Recommend this to anyone

I am built rather square and sport a bit of a belly. The Gen 3 90watt is snug in the belly with ample room in the chest and shoulders.
This is the most comfortable jacket ever! I have ridden with heated gear for over 10 years and the features on this gear are great. everything tucks nicely away, the jacket is slim and fits perfectly beneath both my leathers and my Aerostich Roadcrafter.
Heat is outstanding! It is hot enough to ride down to the 30 degrees I am willing to ride in and more often than not I turn it off before I finish my commute.
It covers the front to just below the collar bones, the back, the arms (with the exception of a lycra stretch band down the back of the arms for added snugness and comfort), and in the collar--which has a lovely plush material so my neck doesn't sweat--stays nice and warm with dedicated heating elements.
The BEST??? Is the customer service. The folks at Revzilla are the best to deal with----AND Warm n Safe (the manufacturer) are by far the very best people I have ever delt with in any business anywhere! They are dedicated, helpful, and always there when problems arise (I had a pair of ratty old FG gloves that WnS took care of in the very best way possible). I cannot say enough positive about this company!
