Gerbing's 7-Volt heated Torrid softshell jacket combines everyday wearability with stainless steel MicroWire heated panels to keep your core toasty and comfortable. There are two chest panels, one back panel, and one built into the back of the collar.
It's a warm and comfortable under-layer for any motorcycle jacket in its own right, with thoughtful details like a hem cinch and sleeve gaskets to reduce cold drafts from sneaking in.
But of course when you buy a battery and charger (sold separately—and we recommend having two to jump back and forth between) then this thing really shines as a cold weather layering piece, becoming a tidy human toaster oven for up to a couple hours on high-heat on a full charge.
Perfect for a short commute, and adaptable enough to repurpose all winter long in everyday life. And best part is you don't have to but a controller as with 12-volt gear, or wire anything into your bike, or deal with cables sticking out of your pockets, A four-setting heat level is set by a simple push-button feature built into the battery itself. Expect to get at least two hours per battery on high, or slightly more on lower heat settings. Also, since it's a battery with a finite shelf life, expect performance to dwindle somewhat over the years.
