15+ Years Online

We've been serving the motorcycle community for more than 15 years now and in that time we've grown to be the largest online retailer of motorcycle clothing & accessories in the UK.

Click & Collect

If you can't be around to receive your delivery during the day, just use our click & collect option. We offer delivery to a shop local to you using the DPD Pickup network. Most pick up points are open outside of normal working hours and will keep your package so you can collect at a time to suit you.

Free Returns*

We now offer free returns on any UK Mainland order (excluding Highlands) over £25. Most importantly, returning an item to us is super simple. Just click here or on the 'create a return' link located at the bottom of every page, and create your return in under 1 minute.

365 Day Returns

We simply don't believe in making the sale and moving on, we want to make sure our customers are happy with their purchase. That's why we now offer a full 365 day returns period. Simply relax, take your time and make sure it's right! All we ask is that you try the items within your own home and return with the tags intact.

Award Winning

There's a reason why our competitors spend so much time watching what we do, we believe in customer service levels beyond the norm and we're always looking for ways to improve. In late 2013 we were recognised for this by the bike industry's No.1 publication, Motorcycle News. As retailer of the year, we feel it's our duty to constantly better our offering and if you have any ideas, we'd love to hear from you!

60,000+ Reviews

Whilst we know a bit about bikes and bike kit, the best road testers out there are our customers, real bikers, just like you. If you're looking for advice on what to buy, you'll find over 60,000 independent product reviews which we've posted, unedited, for all to see. Whether it's a question about sizing, quality or something else, our customer reviews are quite simply, the best place to start.

Customer Reviews for Gerbing 12V Heated Vest - Black

Gerbing 12V Heated Vest - Black
November 27, 2019

Extremely Disappointing

The service and support from SportsBikeShop has been fantastic. The heated vest however is very poor. On arrival I reported a potential problem directly to Gerbing as the vest was not heating very well. They advised me to plug the vest in directly and cut out the controller. The unit was warmer but not brilliant then I noticed that my back had been burnt. I immediately contacted Gerbing who have still not responded after 4days. SportsBikeShop responded immediately and offered immediately to take the product back. All I can assume is that Gerbing does not care that it's injured a customer which is why I would recommend you try another make but definitely buy it from SportsBikeShop.

Really nice piece of kit.

Rated good as I haven't had chance to test the heat settings on the bike yet as it is Summer but a test done in the house shows it really does warm you, even on the lower setting. Once worn under a bike jacket, it should be really 'toasty'. The vest itself has a quality feel to it. I ordered a medium as recommended for my chest size which is 38.5" (I am fairly slight build and 5' 7" tall) but swapped it for the small which fits really well without being overly close fitting. The medium was pretty loose. Can't comment on battery life yet but would recommend buying the highest output you can afford judging by others comments about their battery packs not lasting as long as stated. Batteries are dear though, I'm hoping you get what you pay for.

Great item for cold days on the bike

I bought this and used it on my first run out this year. I'm a size 12 and bought the smallest available. It is perfect fit across my shoulders but just slightly big around the waist but it still fits under my RST Goretex jacket no bother. It's easy to use, connects to the bike easy enough and when used with the temp controller which you buy separately, is great for cold days out on the bike. The 1st two settings were plenty to keep me warm for the 165 miles I did on the bike that day in around 6-7 deg temp. It looks great too with the red trim. I would definitely recommend this for anyone.

Warm and snug at 0 degrees

I made a 45 minute journey of 35 miles with temperatures between 0C and 2C running the vest from their 8AH battery and set to the middle power setting. My core was warm and snug but interestingly my hands and feet were also warm. I was wearing thermals, jumper, lined jacket and outer rain suit as well.

Questions and Answers

Questions and Answers

  • Hi, Can you connect the XR12S gloves to the vest?

    November 7, 2018

    The Gerbing 12V XRS-12 Short Gloves cannot be connected to the vest directly, as the vest has only the one wiring loom for battery connection (unlike their jacket). You are able to connect the gloves and vest to a Gerbing 12V TC-Portable Dual Temperature Controller however, that will then connect to a motorcycle battery.

  • Does this vest come with integral heating controller?

    October 4, 2018

    Unfortunately it doesn't and requires being purchased separately.

  • 1. Does this item come complete with the necessary connectors and leads to connect to the motorcycle battery 'straight out of the box'? 2. Can it also be powered by its own battery while off the bike?

    February 12, 2018

    We can confirm that this is supplied with all of the necessary connectors. There is an additional battery which can be purchased to heat the vest whilst not on the bike.
