Hello,

Im looking to invest in some good Touring/ADV/Heated gear and I'm having a hard time deciding what brand I want to commit to. Mostly looking for jacket and Pants and this will mostly for cold weather riding and touring. Would like something that will be goof for 4 seasons with a zip out liner.

Only really posting this because I was looking heavily into Gerbing but heard a few things about it (Such as the collar on the jacket is very annoying over time) and riding for 10 hours at a time that doesn't sound comfortable at all.

Recommendations are welcome and I know nothing will be absolutely perfect. If it matters I currently ride a Multistrada 1100S and want to upgrade to a Pikes Peak later in time.

Thanks,

Austin

I just picked up the warm and safe heated shirt. I haven't been in anything crazy cold yet, but it's been awesome on some chilly mornings. I love it over a jacket because it puts the heat directly on your body instead of heating through layers.

I haven't tried the pant liners yet, but likely will later this winter.

It's all about budget. What price range are you looking in? That will help guide responses more clearly.

I'm looking at $600-$800 USD for a jacket and pants, will maybe add gloves later as I have battery powered heated ones currently.

If I had to expand the budget a little that could be done... Also I may or may not try to use the gear for snowboarding as well lol (Not the heated part)

Gotcha. That helps a lot.

In that range I would suggest buying heated base layers separately and piece meal as you need them. Right now I'm using battery powered gloves only as the morning temps are not below 40DegC and my non-heated jacket/pants are fine at that range. I can add separate heated socks (my next coldest point), shirts and pants as and when needed.

So for me at least I would top out the budget on the best Jacket/Pant combo you can afford and worry about the heated part later.
I like Klim from a sheer well-engineered perspective. I have some Dainese pants that are surprisingly good in that price range.

Look for double zips - helps a lot with blocking wind.

My recommendation is to buy a jacket liner and some gloves from Warm and Safe. For me they work fantastic under any gear I have.

The only problem with that is that I don't have and cold/Winter jackets, I have two summer jackets, and a pre-curved leather jacket that isn't comfortable on the multi.

Ive been looking at the more expensive jackets (Klim Latitude) and may end up with one of those since I'm getting serious about touring. Any experience with the more expensive non-heated gear in the cold?

I have a Klim Badlands jacket that keeps the water out and provides a lot of safety however I would not claim it is "warm" in cold weather.
