dont waste your $$ on a heated vest .. buy the whole liner..extra $$ well spent
Ben Darby (18 days ago)
I made all of my heated gear for less than half the cost of a pair of proper heated glove liners. Heated vest in particular is great. If you understand ohms law it is incredibly simple to make. The heated gloves I made aren’t amazing but combined with bar muffs I certainly don’t get numb hands anymore.

If you have the clearance and don't mind dirt bike parts you could also get the hand guards to help with wind chill

medical grade silicone has nothing to do with implanting per se, it means the material is in fact safe for prolonged contact with skin, causing little to no irritation. pretty handy if you wanna warm your fingers for 4 hours.

Just an FYI F9. Bought the Gerbing gloves and variable controller directly from Gerbing USA in the spring of 2018. The gloves were poorly stitched and the sizing wrong (I measured as a XL and bought those. My friends with large hands could not fit in them) the controller was sketchy at best (the locking nut was not corrosion protected and was already rusted)... I will stop there. When trying to talk/email them there was a week to up to a 3 week delay because "we are on summer hours". Their final excuse in July was they "Could not find any XL or XXL gloves. Hell, you make them and you cannot "find" any? In the end (about 3 months later) they took all the stuff back but I bore the $75 of shipping costs. I would never recommend them to anyone. Ever. On a side note to this story, I was in Whitby during all this and went into the motorcycle shop (you know the shop just off the 401) and they said they dropped Gerbing last year because they found their products to be unreliable and the warranties took forever. Ended up buying FirstGear's jacket and gloves with a dual controller from F9 actually. Love them. Just my $75 worth of opinion.

What's the best hand guards to deflect wind I find muffs are dangerous are there solid options than dont limit movement and control of my button and allow me to move in and out freely
Emil Kluczyński (1 month ago)
The bigger the better. Alternatively you could create "semi muffs" on top of hand guards from cardboard, foam or what have you. Wrapping something around levers to avoid contact with bare metal also work well.

I know this is an old video, but you said "if you connected it to a 1000 amp battery it would be protected". Almost any electronics doesn't care about a battery's maximum current but rather the voltage

You should check out Nordic Heat instead. Miles ahead in comfort and controls. https://www.nordicheat.dk/en/

Bull Shit on the heated grips. They only heat your palms, not the tips of your fingers (which are the first part to get cold) or the back of your hands (where there's nice big veins to lose the heat). I use Keis heated glove liners with unlined waterproof outer gloves 1 size bigger than my usual and they work perfectly well.
Walter Wilkins (2 months ago)
I’ve bought a few types of heated gear - by far, Gerbing has proven to be the most reliable. Does FortNine sell Gerbing products? What I was searching for is a FortNine review on the remote control accessory - pros & cons?

Oooo i know what i want for cold Wisconsin winter riding!! *looks at the lonely condom in my wallet* I don't need toes, let the frostbite have them. Lets ride!
Jerry Adams (2 months ago)
I have been using electric gear for about 30 years now. This includes various vests, chaps, gloves, electric glove inserts, and heated grips. If you only had one the vest is the one to pick. As far as warmth goes gloves are great, electric inserts are good and hand grips are nice. I have been using electric inserts with motorcycle gloves all during last winter and found that combination to be the best for safety and warmth. I guess if you were racing you might feel some loss of touch but most people will feel comfortable within an hour with the electric liners. For sporty riding in cool riding then sport gloves with electric hand grips is the ticket for me. I trashed the chaps after one ride.

Why would you want heated motorcycle gear when you can only ride in the summer?
Pulsar Tech (20 days ago)
Yeah some of us ride year round. Snow, ice, and all. I can tell you after living in Minnesota heated gear isn't a necessity BUT a want if you don't want an extra 900 pounds of clothing haha

So you can ride the other 6 months just after the last snow melts and just before the next snow season.

Sam Odom (10 months ago)
My Thermacell Heat Pack just arrived. Here in Florida we are not used to seeing the cold weather for more than one/two days a year, so, I had no idea on what warm gear to get. (Winter is normally our best riding season) I took your advice, but, when shopping for Thermacell, I found that they make small "glove warmers", well, Hand Warmers. They come in packs of two, and I have them on my desk charging. I can't wait to try them! Thanks for all your Videos. I like how you present things...and yes, I own a few items that you present. I usually try your employers store first, but they are not available in the US, yet.

I have to ask, what part of Canada? This review sounds like it is for cool weather gear, not cold. Who needs to put heated grips on a BMW GS, how did you find one that didn't have them stock? Grips are nice for cool summer nights, but can't handle actual cold on their own. If you want solid heated gloves with actual armor and key reinforcements, do the Warm & Safe Touring ones. Best addition is handlebar muffs, Tucano Urbano makes functional quality ones for a decent price, but i had to order from the UK where more people use them on 'rides'. Can't help with the controller size for now, but for me wired gear (jacket, gloves, insoles) are the overall most workable, affordable, flexible, simple, and durable setup for dealing with actual cold weather. Don't forget your tire studs...

Gerbings used to make good stuff. Their new stuff is crap. Gauntlets are too small to fit over jacket sleeves and they started putting dumb 90 degree connectors on them for no apparent reason besides to piss me off. Harley used to make some good ones, but apparently their riders didn't buy them and I can't find them anymore. All of them have a tendency to break the microwires within rather quickly just from the normal motions of tugging levers, pressing buttons, and twisting throttles. Shame because they are way better than mere heated grips when it actually gets cold.

Keith White (1 year ago)
I prefer heat trollers to can install on the bike and plug in whatever heated gear you want to wear. That's much easier than portable controllers, remote controllers, battery power, etc.
All heated grips suck. I actually found the the heated glove liners to be much more efficient at keeping my fingers warm.. What use is a palm warmer when its your fingers that engage the switch gears!

Mikael Sedlacek - When I lived in Arizona I used the Veskimo system. The system I used looked like a small cooler I strapped on the passenger seat. The cooler has a electric pump that pumps cool to cold water thru a vest that has tubes on both the chest and back. You put some ice blocks in the cooler and a small amount of water in the cooler. The pump can run off AA batteries or motorcycle battery via cigarette type plug. This system works well for 4-5 hours on an unfaired bike. Using ice from the quickie Mart only lasts 1.5 hours. I also use a jacket with mesh vents over it. This system brings some serious chill to your ride.
Ben Richards (2 months ago)
Thank you for making me look that up, looks promising! I got heat stress twice last year on my commute, and i'm quite concerned about my upcoming summer - it just hit Spring here in Australia and i'm already struggling even in the lightest mesh. I'll try that out before I resolve not to ride through Summer.

I've been commuting in the UK for years with heated Gerbing gloves, they are essential for temps lower than around 8C and rides over 15 minutes. They aren't so expensive, £150 is cheaper than many non-heated gloves including my excellent waterproof Rukka pair I use for milder weather.

I commuted 60 miles to and from Seattle for years. I used Gerbing (the old company before they were bought out) gloves and a jacket liner. For me warm hands are the key to staying comfortable. The problem I had has to do with the motorcycle's electrical output. The bike I commuted on was a 2002 Triumph Speed Triple. 3 alternators later and I finally got the point. I also own a KTM Super Duke. It has heated grips. The heated grips are a game changer for me. Now if someone would only perfect battery powered gloves and jacket liners...

Heated grips should almost be used in combo with decent hand guards/wind deflectors, especially in more extreme conditions.

The clip on the Tourmaster controller will break off by the second use. I stuck some Velcro on mine and happened to already have velco on the leg of my Aerostich. It works better than the clip now.

Can the pocket-warmer also run off of the charger..? I'm thinking particularly of a solar charger that can re-charge while I am riding, then charge the heater...
Pardner (1 year ago)
Mixed feelings on the Oxford Heaters. Keeps my palms nice and toasty but the back of my hands, knuckles, and finger tips become frozen. If I bulk up on thicker gloves, I don't feel the heat of the grips. On the plus side, the grips did extend my riding season by about a month in the fall!
Punk Jock (1 month ago)
You need leather snowmobile gloves. The good ones have a thin palm to let the heat through and a armoured insulated back.

For sub-freezing temps... you really need heated gloves and heated grips... Hippo Hands are also a welcome addition...

I'll stick with passive warm underlayer, watterproof gear and heated gribs. It is enough for down to 1 °C and I never ride, when there could be ice on the roads. For all those crazy mofos plowing through snow on their Dualsports: You're awesome! I respect that, but don't have the balls to do it myself.
Paul Jones (1 year ago)
Would be perfect if someone were to make a winter glove for people with heated grips. Thin 'Roo leather palms for feel and to get the heat into your hands, but a heavier, waterproof and insulated back so your hands don't get too cold as you ride.
Punk Jock (1 month ago)
Try to find a good snowmobile glove. Ski-doo makes some real nice ones that have a thin palm to let the heat through and a thick back with insulation and armour.

Before I need any of these things, I'd need a heated visor! They disappeared many years ago, nearly everybody praises these pinlock visors, but even they will fog up when the weather is cold or when it is rainy and wet. The heated visors disappeared with all these good-weather-riders, but if you only have a motorcycle you will ride in _every_ weather. Cold, rainy or even in winter with temperatures well below freezing. And then I use multiple layers of clothing, which insulates against the cold. No heated boots/gloves/jackets, only lots of layers of cloth and cursing at the fogged up pinlock visor. The last time I rode while it was snowing (wet sticky snow) and it was night, it fogged up so much I couldn't see anything. I had to open the visor and I got all that terrible white and then wet stuff into my face. If the visor were hot, no snow would stick outside and no fog would build up inside and the heat would radiate on the face. The rest of the body is well protected in multiple layers of cloth and waterproof raingear. Heated visors are the only missing thing.

Snowmobiling isn't popular anywhere in Germany. Maybe it was/is popular in some places in the Alps but nowhere in my region. Thirty years ago we had a bit more snow, enough that we even had a hill with a ski-lift. But over the years the winters got warmer and warmer and since 2009 the ski-lift is not in use anymore. There are some pictures of that hill with ski-lift (use google translate for both pages): - http://www.sommerschi.com/forum/reportagen-f8/neunkirchen-15-02-2009-nicht-retro-sondern-origina-t1697.html - https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neunkircher_H%C3%B6he But that climate change has something good, less ice and snow means more motorcycling. ;)
Elimentus (1 year ago)
Ahhh you being from Germany makes sense. I'm Canadian and Bell Helmets are pretty well known here! I second the preference for not buying a helmet you can't try on first. If snowmobiling is popular at all in Germany maybe some searches for those helmets will bring up different results! They should be similarly rated for safety
zvpunry (1 year ago)
Thanks for that information. I didn't know of that vendor, they are fairly unknown here in Germany. We have some bigger stores for motorcycle gear (polo, louis, heingericke) and they didn't even know what a heated visor is and one guy even insisted that pinlock must be better because he didn't know heated visors (strange reasoning). Anyways, I did a quick search for bell-helmet dealers here in Germany (around Frankfurt am Main) and found some online-dealers but no store where I can test them. I wouldn't buy a helmet where I can't test if it works for me.
Elimentus (1 year ago)
Bell's MX-9 Adventure helmet comes in a snowmobiling variant with a double-layer heated visor. There are probably others out there you just have to look in different markets!

My two cents- Oxford Grips are great but when temps started falling to freezing(zero and lower degrees C), they didn't do much for my fingers even with me wearing insulated gloves. So, I got heated gloves which did a better job of keeping fingers warm- VentureHeat ones, which do need big bulky controllers (but annoying stabilizer wires?). Still not fully happy as I was still connected to the bike with pesky wires, I went the old fashioned way and got dorky looking Oxford handlebar muffs but they have done such a great job in combination with the heated grips, that I didn't even really feel the need for heated gloves! They say the Hippo hands (short version) do a great job too so may put in some more $$ and try those this coming winter.
locomojo0485 (11 months ago)
That's my problem too. I have heated grips, but they don't work amazing, so I wear insulated gloves, so then I end up blocking the heat from getting into the glove too. It's a vicious cycle.
