Hey,

Anybody have experience wearing an electric vest? Gloves? Chaps? Sox? I am getting a Widder for my birthday. I know that H-D sells one (at 50% more) and I looked at the Gerbing and Chilli brands. Widder seems to have a more complete line of stuff that all works together. I liked the idea of a vest/liner over a jacket because a jacket might have air pockets that let the warmth out. Anyway I'm committed to the Widder with the electronic controller so my mind is made up but I haven't heard any personal experiecnces. Whatdaya think?

Ride Safe,
Holden

Yes, I have a Gerbings jacket liner, comes with arms, unlike the widder, and thier gloves, very very warm, have used it in temps in the low 20's and been very comfortable. From what I have heard Gerbings far outdoes the Widder stuff.

Electric Vest.

Holden,

Widder's electric vest and gloves were my choice to wear during the winter for 5 years. the wiring finally broke with in the vest and gloves, so I went to Gerbings and I think that their gloves are superior in the heat out put.
However, The vest that Widder manufautures is a good choice to use.
Wear it colse to the skin, BUT NOT against the skin.

Ride Safe.

'preciate the input. BTW the widder has sleeves that attach to the vest giving you the option of sleeves or the vest alone. Widder also offers chaps. I think Gerbing has sox but widder doesn't offer sox. Pros and cons. Hope the quality of the Widder is good and they hold up ok.

Death to bugs
