Kanetsu AIRVANTAGE®

This electrically heated gear has a unique and patented inflatable insert which not only blocks external drafts better than any conventional liner, it also insulates you better. And while it's doing that it also gently urges the heating elements closer to you for a more efficient heat transfer. You'll ride warmer, in greater comfort with less electrical load on your bike.

Traditionally, having an efficient electric garment has meant suffering an uncomfortably close-fitting movement-restricting designs. The Airvantage insert allows you to adjust its exact fit, insulation and overall closeness with a few breaths of air. This feels like a soft warm hug.

The liner model is based on a Darien liner, but provides an under-jacket environment which can be much warmer.

Three separate heating circuits provide fast and even warmth everywhere. One inside each of the sleeves and another for the combined body and collar areas. The sleeves use a slightly different version of resistance heating wire which is a bit 'warmer' than the torso's so you feel the same warmth everywhere.

Black WINDSTOPPER® smooth outer fabric blocks drafts 100% and packs down small. (US Pat. #7,891,019) Includes: fused, lighted coil cord hookup and power switch. 75 watts / 5 amps. Specify QuiConnect 2, SAE or BMW connectors. Specify QuiConnect 2, SAE or BMW connectors. 45 watts / 3.3 amps.


The utmost in warmth. Electrics run all the way through the non-detachable sleeves for maximum thermal comfort. Draws 75 watts/5 amps*. Black. 38–54. Made in USA


*ELECTRIC LINER COMPATIBILITY: 2006 and newer BMW CAN-bus outlets are limited to 5.0 amps. Kanetsu Electric Liner (#267) and the Kanetsu AirVantage Electric Liner (#291) draw 5.5–5.7 amps, so the CAN-bus shuts down the circuit. The Kanetsu Electric Vests and Kanetsu Airvantage Electric Vests are ok because they draw less amps (no heated sleeves). All Kanetsu Liners can be used with the 2006 BMW's if a fused outlet is attached directly to the battery (BMW Accessory Socket #108 and In Line Blade Fuse Holder #4664 with a 10 amp fuse) or if a 1.25 ohm resistor is inserted in the BMW accessory outlet circuit.

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

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.

Motorcycle Consumer News Review

"As expected from an Aerostich garment, the Kanetsu's overall build quality is superb. The Kanetsu lives up to Aerostich's reputation and was the best of all liners tested. Also...the Kanetsu did an admirable job of blocking windchill. Its Windstopper exterior allowed for a lower setting on the controllers to achieve the same equivalent feeling of toasty warmth as the other two liners on higher settings. Heat was evenly distributed, with no dramatic cold or hot spots detected." - April 2010 Motorcycle Consumer News Heated Riding Gear Comparison, by Moshe K. Levy.
