Heated Vest

Back again in the Gerbing collection is the heated waistcoat. The heated vest is by far the most economic way to keep the core warm. And that is what heated clothing is supposed to do: keep the vital organs inside your body warm. If your body temperature drops by 1C, your reaction time will drop by 10%. Imagine that if you are riding a bike in the cold. The Gerbing heated vest is not a luxury product but a safety product!

The heated waistcoat/ heated vest is a nice slim fitting model made from soft shell fabric. Very stylish model with extra soft tricot lining in the neck area. The heated vest heats the entire core, including the neck through a heating element in the collar. 2 heated pads, made from our famous Microwire®, in the chest, and 2 heating pads in the back makes sure you will not loose any heat, even if you are riding in arctic circumstances.

  • Heats entire core to keep you warm
  • Microwire®  heating elements with lifetime warranty
  • Nice luxury looking soft shell fabric
  • Extra accessory plug to connect the heated socks or heated gloves.
  • Inside and outside pockets

The difference between a heated waistcoat and a heated jacket liner are the sleeves which are also heated on the jacket liner. But if you have a tight fitting (leather) riding suit, the heated jacket liner will become too bulky, and you might want to choose the heated vest.

If you want to connect one of our 12 volt heated gloves or heated socks to the vest, you need a y-cable which goes into the accessory plug of the heated vest/ heated waistcoat.
Note: A Junior controller will not work if you have an inline temperature  controller for the heated vest.

Like all of our 12 volt heated clothing, also the vest is provide with a battery hook-up for free.

Single or Dual Temperature Controller

Actual run time may vary depending on ambient temperature. Battery capacity decreases in very cold weather, especially if the battery is not insulated, and is left exposed to the elements. At less than 0°C a battery may only produce 80% of its capacity.

Warning: It is very important to understand that our 12 volt products are designed to keep you warm in the most extreme cold situations. Therefore it is very important to check your skin regularly when using our products in warmer weather conditions. Our 12 volt products will feel warmer when the temperature is rising and it might cause burns. Our advice is to use a temperature controller at all times. An outside temperature of 5°C and lower is the ideal temperature for our heated products. Remember: heat is very personal.

To extend battery life, keep even if the batteries are not used always at least 25% charged. In the summer charge the batteries therefore once a month. (Hint: write it in your agenda).

Note: If you are purchasing a single controller to use with one our jackets which are wired with our Dual 2 wiring systems, you will need to purchase a splitter if you choose to operate other heated clothing with the jacket.
