1. Powerlet sockets kits are designed to handle the demands of heated apparel while withstanding the elements. The kits come with custom brackets of varying sizes and colors coupled with heavy duty wiring harnesses to ensure a correct fit. Price: $24.95 and up. More info: www.powerlet.net.

2. Hot Grips manufactures nine different models of heated grips for motorcycles, with options such as handlebar-mounted switch controls as well as fairing-mounted controls with variable heat. Price: $66 to $110. More info: www.hotgrips.com

3. A drawback to traditional electric vests is that the fit needs to be closely tailored to get the heating elements close to the body. The Aerostich Kanetsu AirVantage Vest’s adjustable insert not only allows for a roomier fit but increases warmth. Removeable sleeves are a nice touch. Price: $237. More info: www.aerostich.com.

4. Gerbing’s Heated Gloves warm the entire length of each finger as well as the back of the hand. The shell is leather, and the lining provides breathable protection from wind and water. Price: $139. More info: www.gerbing.com.
