Product Description

Details

On colder rides enjoy quick warmth spreading evenly across your chest. It's a difference you'll feel even on shorter rides. Stuffing old newspapers underneath your jacket might cost a bit less, but that is uncomfortable and doesn't add heat. This patented bib is electric-warm, windproof and packs really small. The smooth outer fabric layer is black GORE-TEX® WINDSTOPPER® and the side toward your body is a comfy black micro-fleece. The radiant electric heating layer is between.

The bib stays in place under your jacket perfectly because the inner fleecy layer is grabby and the outer WINDSTOPPER® layer is slippery. The comfortable low-profile fleece lined collar closes fast with hook and loop located at the upper chest and keeps drafts away.

Self-stores, power cord and all, into a built-in zippered pocket. Patent #D641,543S. 30 watts, 2.5 amps. Two sizes: Regular to 5'9”, and Tall over 5'10”. Includes a fused, lighted power switch coil cord. Made in USA

not a vestReview by KW
Good value but my back was chilled riding a Bmw r1150rt - glad it was on the bike in Nov. in Mi. (Posted on 11/8/12)
Warmbib should be called COZY Bib!!Review by Starrider
I purchased this Cozy Bib about 2 weeks ago, just before the onset of cold season (elev.7000'). Normally, by this time of the year, I would have my favorite past-time up on blocks with the Battery Tender hooked up!! I've been able to ride EVERY day since this purchase because the bib genuinely keeps me toasty warm even when I'm creating my on Wind chill factor (I can't do 55)!! This Warm (cozy) bib is the best purchase of it's type that I have ever made and the theory behind it (keeps your core heated) really works!! If you ride in "COLD" weather and you don't have ANY heated gear, this is a very affordable way to start your collection!! (Posted on 11/2/12)
Electric WarmbibReview by Eddie
I have been using the Warmbib for three years now and I could not be happier with it. I Have been all over Australia on my Suzuki GSF1250S including the snowy mountains where temperatures were down to -10 degrees. Toes were cold but body remained warm. Bib does not seem to affect alternator output. (Posted on 10/6/12)
Helped keep me alive in AKReview by Nemo
Great little boobie warmer for bikes with limited spare electrical capacity, quality materials and it does indeed stay put beneath a jacket. I used mine on a 3-month Alaska ride on a DR650--the warmbib and heater grips were just within what its charging system could handle. Silliest looking garment ever, but its warmth kept me one step ahead of misery on those chilly, rainy Alaska summer days, including a snowy crossing over Atigun Pass.

Two small things: an elastic strap (perhaps removable) would be handy to compress the bib against the body, so that contact and heat transfer is maintained. Second, after the big ride, one of the prongs of the SAE plug fell out, and a new cord will be necessary. Better-quality cords would be a great idea--if it had failed in AK or British Columbia, I'd have been in a bad way and close to hypothermia on some days. (Posted on 7/29/12)
warmbib reviewReview by mark in mesa
i bought the warmbib because one of my vintage bikes has a very weak electrical system and it cannot support much of an accessory load. the warmbib works just great on this bike. so far it has not overloaded the system at all. on a chilly 45 degree phoenix morning the bib made a usually uncomfortable ride quite comfortable (this bike is unfaired). and it works very well on my large cruiser, too. i'll be getting one for my wife as well. good value.

heated bib for motorcycleReview by mrboat
Since I have received the bib I have not had time to wear it as the weather has been toooo cold to ride. Highs 40 or less. I did pu the bib on and dressed as if I were riding and I really did not feel any difference. It feels as though I have on a heavy sweatshirt. As soon as the weather gets better I plan to try it out on the bike. (Posted on 2/12/12)
A little small.Review by Kung
I am 5'5" so I thought the regular size would fit well but I am wishing it was 2" longer. Other than that, it heats up very well. I have used it about twenty times now. (Posted on 2/2/12)
Just rightReview by T100SC
I've ridden many times at temps down to 30 or so and been warm with just a proper jacket and a few layers. So I was not interested in an electric jacket or vest. The Warmbib, however, seems to be just right for me. Easy to pack for our AK trip this year, and does a nice job keeping the core nice and warm. Allows one less layer on a cold day. May make all the difference if caught out on a 38 degree and raining day. If you've ever thought: "Electric gear is not for me..." then consider this one. Very nice...also bought one for the wife.

Still experimentingReview by Senior Moments
Warming bib does work well under my close fitting Aerostich zipper liner. I would alter the bib to work with just a lined jacket by using a loop neck and a wide (3") belt with velcro close to the bottom of the bib, to hold it close to the body. As it is now, a bit bulky at the neck, especially under the Aerostich liner and with my XL Aerostich liner (I have several), not close enough to my chest to stay warm. It is gratifying to feel the heat under the close fitting liner, making it a success. (Posted on 12/27/11)
Warm RiderReview by Butch
Works great, easy to put on and off. Great for those summer unexpected cool spots like high elevations. Also works well for Kentucky winter rides. Takes up very little space. (Posted on 12/27/11)

Simplifying Comfort (...a Better Power-cord)

Lighted power switch coil cord

We have been making this pretty neat coil cord power control for twenty years. I remember designing it to be an illuminated hi-low inline switch of such small dimension that it would not be a 'lump' in the middle of a compact coily power cord. We went round-and-round trying to find a switch which would allow a better functioning and packaging design. Something tactually, visually, and ergonomically lighter and cleaner.

And there still isn't anything as good in terms of simplicity and overall handy-ness. I wanted this cord switch to be so easy to use one could forgo a thermostat. They always seemed useless over-complexity...even the newer nice digital ones everyone uses now (just yesterday all were stupid power-hungry inefficient resistance rheostats). I'd used one several times but wanted something thoughtlessly simple, super-compact and field-reparable if ever needed. (This last consideration turned out irrelevant.)

Lighted power switch coil cord

It's just too easy to be riding along and without looking down move my left hand downward from the grip momentarily to find the cord lying across my left thigh and then by touch alone (finger or thumb) push or release the illuminated in-out button…then move my hand back to the left grip.

It's only one second, done without thinking, and there's no fumbling around. I can feel at a touch if the button is in high or low position to maintain temperature at a nice level all day long, with neither thought or effort. Just click-on and click-off as needed for comfort, and if there's ever question about power status a quick glance down shows the red pilot light glowing on or off through the button's cap. Even in daylight.

So today if I were for some reason forced to use some non-Aerostich electric garment, I'd still want this simple, intuitive and reliable coil cord and switch.

Electric Bib Story

A few years ago John Chase (designer and co-founder of the pioneering motorcycle luggage company Chase Harper) wanted some electric heating wires for an experimental off-road chest protector. One prototype led to another and pretty soon we were making prototype versions of this Kanestu electric bib. They worked so well…much better than we'd anticipated…and there was nothing else even remotely like them on the market. So we applied for a US Patent (#D641,543S) and somewhat surprisingly received one.

With perfect hindsight it's easy to see why this non-obvious invention is so wonderful. Generations of riders have put layers of newspaper under their jackets, carefully positioned across their chest to block cold winds. At the same time our circulatory system is incredibly efficient at moving any calorie of added heat to all areas of our body, no matter where those calories are added. Doesn't matter if they come via heated grips, saddles, vests, liners, bibs or from a just-imbibed piping hot cup of cocoa. Calories are the same wherever they're added.

Worn beneath an Aerostich textile suit aboard my unfaired bike I'm good to temps in the lowish fifties during all-day-long rides...and down into the forties under a Transit jacket.

Whenever cool weather is anticipated I'll also carry a wind block jersey and a 100wt micro fleece...and layer-up as needed: electric bib first, then fleece, then the jersey and lastly the Roadcrafter/Darien or Transit. The combination takes me five to ten degrees lower.

Is this electric bib is the most important new Aerostich product we've added during the last five or ten years? I don't know. But if it's not it's near the top of the list.
