Aerostich Electric Warmbib
- Product Review (submitted on July 29, 2012):
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.
