Product Description


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

Summer Touring & Commuting perfectReview by Wolfgang
For those touring in summer and commuting in fall & spring as well, combining this with a merino wool zip sweater is a good non-bulk way to go.
For morning cold starts, hitting altitude byways and night-time temp drops, this has been an indispensable tool in my Moto gear bag. Been using mine for 8 years now and it’s still toasting well. (Posted on 2/24/18)
Heated BibReview by James
This is a great addition to my moto gear. It fits under snug fitting jackets and my R-3 suit without turning me into the Michelin man. Probably adds about 10-15 degrees to comfort range without all the bulk. Nice. (Posted on 2/10/18)
WARMReview by SamO
THIS IS NiCE! This Warmbib is worth every penny, and well worth any wait. It warms up in a few seconds and stays a constant temperature throughout my ride to Work. I wish I had bought this years ago. The Gore tex Windstopper fabric is plenty warm enough itself (im warm just walking around the house/garage, with it under my shirt!), but adding that even heat makes this perfect for those cold mornings.

Warmbib Review by Tim
I've had a Kanetsu liner for my Darien Light for years and love it but I wanted something to wear under other jackets that would be less bulky for shorter trips. The Warmbib is superb for this. I could kick myself for not getting one years ago. Great idea, great product. (Posted on 10/24/17)

Cozy good.Review by Gary B.
I ride 600+ miles a week, many on my 90-mile round-trip daily commute from Mountain View to San Francisco. I also take my wife for spirited rides through the Santa Cruz Mountains, where temps fluctuate. I chose the Aerostich Electric Warmbib to offset the morning chill under my Dainese leather jacket, and it's perfect.

Now, our weather in NorCal pales in comparison to the Midwest, where I was born and raised. We've had one of the wettest winters in decades after several of the driest, but that hasn't stopped me from riding. The Electric Warmbib was the final solution I needed to ride in comfort. I'll appreciate its usefulness while riding my first Mt Tam Easter Sunrise Ride this year.

In fact, I just ordered one for my wife and son as we gear up for the Quail Motorcycle Gathering in May. Thanks for the great products, Andy! (Posted on 3/17/16)
Warmth. Cheap.Review by Mark
I've had my warmbib for several months now. Once or twice, for a little additional warmth, I've worn it without bothering to plug it in, and it definitely helps in borderline conditions (particularly if your outer layer isn't especially windproof). This past weekend, temps dipped into the 20s -- colder than "borderline" in my book -- so I fired her up. Oooohhh! That's nice! Just the right amount of warmth, where it's needed most. Clipped to my tankbag, the partially-coiled cord let me stand on the pegs when I needed to without causing a disconnect. I'm very pleased. The warmbib is a great value. Now to find some heated gloves... (Posted on 2/18/14)
FixedReview by Rob
I decided on a Warm Bib from Aerostich as part of my "Dual Sport Ensemble". Yeah, that's kinda lame, but it is what it is. I ride with a 'stich on my Versys, layering up or down underneath as needed. It's been an a fine solution for 12 years, a great design, and nothing needed fixing (I did have it crash repaired once, and had the pants zips replaced with the new ones last year). It can be a bit warm for Dual sporting though.
I have a jacket from another company that I picked up barely used and I've been using it on the DR. The jacket works pretty well and it has a toasty zip-in liner. The liner provides a nice insulated layer everywhere- except down the front! The DR spills a lot of air at the chest, and once I got the bike I really noticed the gap. Initially I dealt with the problem by ditching the liner and using a wind-block fleece. This eliminated the cold spot and fixed another issue of the jacket- the collar chafes when fully closed. It was more tolerable than toasty though, and layering my Aero heated vest under it was bulky, especially at the collar. I didn't have a power port for the vest on the DR anyway.
Snatching victory from the jaws of defeat, I decided to take the plunge on the warm bib. I also bought the Battery Tender Jr., and am just using the pigtail from the BT to power the bib. The liner went back into the jacket, the warm bib blocks the wind at the gap and adds toasty heat at the core when plugged in. Works great! Warm core means more blood flow to the hands AND feet, also the heat is added at a well insulated spot and doesn't get blown away or sucked into the aluminum bars. I'm holding off on the heated grips for now, though I may end up caving, warm grips are deliciously decadent.
The bib has a comfy fleece collar, adds very little (additional) bulk under the jacket, and packs up small enough to ride in the US10. The pigtail hides behind the left-side panel keeping the spartan aesthetic intact, and I get to keep the cool Oury grips.
So I fixed my jacket from the other guys with a modestly priced piece from Aerostich. What's that? Shoulda bought a Darien? (Posted on 12/6/13)
Fantastic!Review by Tom
This is a fantastic item! Went for a ride this morning (42F) just to test it out (OK, and to meet my crazy motorcycle buddies for coffee) On top of a short sleeve tee, and under a medium weight fleece, topped off with a Darien Lite. No windshield, either. Warm and toasty. Brilliant idea!!!!! (Posted on 10/26/13)
Just RightReview by Dominic
Received my Warmbib earlier this week. Yesterday was cloudy and 46 degrees, so I thought that I would take it for a ride to see how well it worked. I sit behind a windshield on my bike that comes up to about chin level. I also had my grip heaters set to high. I wore the bib between a t-shirt and a fleece, then I put on my Roadcrafter jacket. With the bib off...too cold. With the bib on...too hot! Using a thermostat set at mid position...just right. Very nice! (Posted on 10/25/13)

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.
