A Rider's Gift List

Great Gifts for Bikers
Its gift giving season and time to come up with those great ideas that will surprise and elate your significant other. For those of us that are a bit luckier, we can also write a list or leave little hints around that will let your friends and family members know what you really want this year.

For us die-hard motorcycle riders that could mean new gear that can help us enjoy riding year round. But there are important practices for assuring a comfortable ride in cold conditions that start with layering clothing built specifically for the sport. Put these items on your Christmas list and cruise year round in style and comfort.

Gerbing’s Heated Clothing
One of the coolest things to know about Gerbing’s heated clothing is its Microwire design. Developed specifically for special ops forces, the Microwire was built to meet the military’s stringent requirements for durability, light weight and rapid heating ability. Now patented and packaged in a variety of Gerbing’s products, you can outfit yourself from head to toe with heated insoles, socks, pants and jacket liners, and gloves.

Eagle Leather Customers Love their Gerbing’s
For most Eagle Leather customers, they say heated gear is the way to beat the cold. “A heated jacket liner does wonders all by itself!” Seattle Teamster said on our Facebook page. Ed Revet added that he prefers heated gear and notes that it doesn’t warm up [and get uncomfortably warm] as you’re riding. He implies heated grips and a heated seat are good too.

Two Facebook contributors even noted that wearing heated gear eliminates the need for layers. Kristin Lipke Eberly said that with hear heated gear, “more than two layers and I start to feel like the Michelin Man.”  And Janice Plattner noted: “Just bought Gerbing's heated gear, going to love not having to put on 6 layers! Yey!”

When you come into Eagle Leather to try on any of these items – or if you are buying a Gerbing’s item as a gift -- be sure to ask about how the controller works and how each piece of Gerbing’s clothing is easily connected to the other.
