Anything from Aerostich. High quality but expensive. There are several ways to hook it up. Some use a cigarette style receptacle mounted on the cycle while others just run a pig tail from the battery.

I bought the Powerlet Jacket along with their glove liners. I have used them in 20 f temps and was nice and toasty. They have a lifetime warranty on the wiring.
The jacket is nice to wear off the bike. It also folds into the back pouch and makes a nice little pillow when camping/or small enought to not take up much room in the saddlebags.

I also have gerbing gloves.
They all hook up from the pos battery into a fuse. I let my wire hang out from just under the seat.

You definitly need a heat controller. Otherwise you can get burnt from too much heat. The powerlet has a remote controller. You can put it where it is right for you. In the pocket, on the handlebars, wherever.

most are not cheap but if you want to ride when it is colder then it is worth it.

let us know what you decide.

The wife and I use Gerbings and are quite happy with them... We use only the jacket liners so far but I am giving serious consideration to the pants as well... They are really warm and comfortable and carry a lifetime warranty on the wiring as well... We have been well satisfied with them...

Wife and I use Gerbing. Thinking about installing permanent thermostats on the bike for me. Way easier to control. She is fine with portable controller. I have full pants that I just purchased. I may resell them as XLg tall today, isn't as big as it used to be. There are charts to calculate correct fit. Cyclemax has a good page with measurements.

For really cold weather the heated seats in my Toyota work well for me

Top of the line heated clothing, by the time you add the controllers, etc. are out of my price range and I have little interest in riding in weather that would require it anyway. Grip heaters and an electric chest warmer works fine for me down to around freezing and that's cold enough to suit me.

Gerbing has a great reputation and I know several riders who are very happy with that brand. You'll want as much temperature controllability as possible...so don't skimp on the thermostat unit(s).

heated clothing Gerbings

i use gerbing gloves,jacket liner and dual controller,would imagine pants also you will probably be in the range of 525-$600 at least
another choice may be chaps instead of pants which have worked well for me down to about 30 degs,colder than that i would rather not ride due to chances of icing on roads

We purchased Gerbings jackets, pants, gloves and shoe inserts with the adjustable rheostats. We love them. My feet get a bit too warm so I do not use the shoe inserts. We spent about $1700 bucks a few years ago for both sets - not cheap, but warm.

I have the jacket liner, g3 gloves, socks, pant liner from gerbings. They are awesome. Until it is under 30 degrees you really don't need the pants. I usually slip on a pair of snow boarding pants and good to go. the gloves and jacket are used almost everyday this time of year. I ride about 40 miles each way to work.
