I'm finally ready to buy some heated clothing as I got sick coming back from Michigan a little while ago due to getting too cold. I'm looking at Gerbings but would like to hear of alternatives. Does anybody discount Gerbings? How do the heated socks fit under boots? Am I going to need a bigger size boot? How about fit on jacket liners? How snug should they be? How about pants liners vs. heated pants? The Gerbings heated pants did not seem to have to much in the way of protection.
