GERBING HEATED GEAR BREAKING NEWS


I was on the phone with Gerbing customer support this week and was informed that they are moving all productions from CHINA to NORTH CAROLINA, USA.  I think this is great news for Gerbing!  They are located in Tumwater, Washington and to have their own production site on the same continent is awesome.  Plus, will be nice to see a tag say Made in USA.

We are heading down to their headquarters the weekend of November 6th to get new updated liners.  We have the old technology and we are going with the micro wire.  We used Gerbing on our summer trip and through out the winter here where we live in BC.  We own the T5 gloves too and with the liner, our heated grips and gloves we can comfortable ride in -5 C.

they also said supply might be delayed a bit..they are expecting new stock in the next few weeks but as far as when things will be coming out of North Carolina might be awhile. They said it is a large move to change locations from China to the USA but they are on it.

See our Triumph Tiger and gear review for our thought on Gerbing.

Here is a funny picture of Cheryl in her Gerbing liner coming out of a really bad smelling out house in Boundary Alaska this summer…you see we wore the liner everywhere.  ;-)

  1. Glad to see something coming back to the USA. I have had a pair of thier gloves for quite a few years, I think this is the year I need to get a jacket liner to go with the gloves.

  2. Love my Gerbing microwire jacket liner! As soon as their T5 gloves carry a “Made in USA” tag, I’ll buy a pair. Maybe they’ll open a factory outlet store and I can just ride over and pick up a pair. Way cool!
