I just tried Gerbings heated gear, and now I own not only the Extreme Element pants, but also the LT jacket, gloves, and insoles. It's the best heated gear out there, and I can kick myself for not buying Gerbings 2 seasons ago. Makes a huge difference riding in cold weather and has extended my riding season by a good 3 months a year. Keep in mind that the gloves and jackets run true to size, but the pants run a little large: my size 34 relaxed fit waist only needed a size SM in these pants (I wear size LG in Scorpion pants and size 36 in Alpinestar A-10 pants for reference). Worth every penny, especially since you can now laugh at whatever cold weather mother nature throws at you.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I use the T-Pro level 2 back protector during warmer months, and the Forcefield Adventure harness in colder weather. T-Pro offers the best protection, with comfort, as the nitrex armor conforms to your body shape so well that you forget its there. I just rode 120 miles on my Street Triple in 90+ weather with this under my mesh jacket, and I wasn't uncomfortable, even in traffic and at red lights. I only noticed the retained heat when I took it off. Sure, it'll add some heat to your back if you compare it to riding with only a t-shirt, but I wasn't sweating or irritated. But for the protection with comfort it offers, you can't beat this back protector. Forcefield makes a mockery of the competition.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I was looking for a more practical mesh hot weather pant to use with ankle high boots for when I didn't want to use my Alpinestar A-10s with full size boots. Tried Scorpion Deuce pants but they are cut so awkward they are only comfortable when standing. Not so with these pants. Nice air flow, excellent fit and feel on and off the bike. My armored shorts fit underneath with no binding, and I really appreciate the different styling with bellows pockets.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Forcefield Back Protector Pro Sub 4 The Forcefield Back Protector Pro Sub 4 is the worlds first Motorcycle back protector to transmit less than 4kn when subjected to the standard CE test. The Pro Sub 4 has been specifically designed to test at under 4kn when subjected to the standard CE test EN1621-2. Independent testing by SATRA shows a mean test result of 3.38kn transmitted energy, making it the first motorcycle back protector in the world to attain this level of performance. Constructed with a removable and washable outer cover to give the rider the ability to keep the back protector clean and hygenic, it also makes the protector more flexible as it is not bonded at the edges, this in turn makes it more comfortable to wear, a prime consideration in the design process of any Forcefield product. As with all Forcefield Body Armour the Pro Sub 4 has RPT (Repeat Performance Technology) ensuring continued and consistent protection even after multiple impacts. Features The World's first Motorcycle back protector to transmit less than 4kn when subjected to the CE test EN1621-2 (Level 2) Removable and washable outer cover CE Level 2 Rated Protection RPT (Repeat Performance Technology) Comfortable and non restrictive Flexible Breathable Moulds to body shape Adjustable waist and shoulder straps Multi Sport use Read more about this product in this WebBikeWorld.com Review

The Sub4Pro is my choice of back protection not only because of the high level of protection, but because the material conforms to your body,so you pretty much forget you're wearing it, even when off the bike. The only caveat is that it's noticeably thicker than the level 2 Forcefield Flite I wear when its colder, so a slim fit jacket or race suit might be a tight fit you'd have to watch out for. Otherwise, your regular leather, textile, and/or mesh jacket shouldn't have a fit issue when you wear it. An added plus is the ease of removing the pads to wash it and keep it fresh during the hotter months. Worth every penny.

I use the Forcefield Flite, Adventure, Sub4Pro, Adventure pants and Action shorts: temp. and where I'm riding determines what combo I wear. Anyone who is concerned with the fit shouldn't... the Flite conforms to your body so you forget its there. Coverage is excellent, and the kidney belt makes a difference on those longer rides. The Flite keeps protection where you need it if you ever need it and it is really easy to put on or remove. You may trust your elbows and shoulder pads already in your jacket, but give your spine the best protection you can get.
Yes, I recommend this product.
