Very comfortable and warm jacket (even with power off). Back protector needed an immediate upgrade (Alpinestars Bionic Air Protector insert worked perfectly). Also I don't like how collar velcro is designed, it keeps catching on helmet strap every time I turn my head.
Other than that, great product.

Those work as advertised. Couple cons though - they are someone bulky, compared to some other winter gloves, power cables dongle around when not plugged in.
But if you are looking for winter heated gloves and OK with some of those shortcomings - highly recommended.

Gerbing's Heated Jacket Liner Constructed from a wind-resistant, soft nylon shell. Wear the heated jacket liner under other motorcycle clothing. Insulated to be thermally efficient along with being wind-resistant and highly compressible. The perfect garment to pack for those unpredictable weather conditions. Gerbings newest version includes many upgrades to help make the jacket liner even better. The most revolutionary change to the liner is the New Microwire heat panels strategically placed throughout the garment, providing you with the thinnest, lightest, strongest and fastest heating system ever. Heating pads on the chest, back, collar, and sleeves Compressible, water-repellent, durable, Thinsulate insulation Teflon coated, wind-resistant, soft nylon shell Inside and outside pockets Silky soft micro denier collar Form-fitting patterns and sizing to fit snugly and easily under your outer garments Glove plug pockets placed on the sleeves secure the plugs when not in use Dual 2 wiring configuration (for one user only) Lifetime warranty on heating elements Incorporates Gerbing's Microwire heating technology that uses micro-sized heating fibers to surround the body with warmth. SPECIFICATIONS Heat Microwire Heat Techno ogy Source 12-volts DC Current 6.4 amps Watts 77 watts Surface Temp 135F +/- 5F at 32F Please Note Gerbing's has eliminated the Power Distribution Unit found on previous versions and replaced it with individual connectors that can be stored in a zippered, internal pocket.

Works as advertised. Initially ordered XS/SM-R had to exchange to SM-L, which is a bit loose but at least sleeves reach my hands now

Touring Mid Layer Top The Alpinestars Touring Mid Layers Top's clever design lets it function as both an under jacket thermal layer and a functional windproof jacket, perfect for casual use. Features Three layer windproof polyester construction with pre-curved sleeves for improved fit Functional thermal fleecing system with varying panel thickness. Thicker layers on the torso, upper back and kidney area for warmth combine with thinner layers on the center back and armpits to improve moisture wicking and comfort Cuff and waist ribbed inserts keep the heat in and the cold out Two pockets provide practical, every day use Collar zipper garage prevents unwanted contact with zipper for a comfortable fit

It's a great mid layer to wear under your jacket. It feels nice, comfortable and warm (was riding in 50 degrees in summer jacket and this fleece).
It is a bit expensive though, you can almost get two Joe Rocket Full Blast Layers for that price (which also is a great product).
For 99.99 or something it would've been perfect.

Got this as an upgrade for RC Back Protector in Stunt Air jacket. What a difference! It is much slimmer and more comfortable. It is bit pricey though, something like 49.99 would've been perfect.

Ordered MD Tall and it fits me perfectly (5' 9", 160 lbs). Only complain is that knee guard position is hard to adjust and it's still half an inch lower than where I would like it to be.
Ridden in those in colder mornings (around 50 degrees), when wearing over jeans it provided good insulation.

Got this fleece to wear under my summer jacket as it colder (i.e. around 50 degrees) - it worked perfectly, it's not too thick, but still provides nice insulation. It looks great and fits true to size. Would recommend.
