Great Little Jacket

First off, I apologise for my late reaction. I was touring in the French Alps last week, so I haven't gotten time to reply properly. Now that we got that out of the way, I just want to say that it actually runs a bit small. It's just a little tight around the body, and my arms are just a little bit too short to comfortably use the 'handwarmer' function by putting the thumbs through the provided hole. Then again, this is not the first jacket or sweater I got with this option that I never use. I wore the Ectotherm vest under my Rev-It armor suit and It was such a perfect combo that I kept that for the entirety of the trip. Temperatures high up on the 'cols' were such that I usually kept it on Medium Heat if needed. When outside temperatures would run 25 to 27 degrees celcius, I just unzipped the collar and a bit more of both the armor suit and jacket to be comfortable at cruising speeds. The Rev-It Parka I wore over everything during the trip from Belgium to the French Alps was stored away to never resurface again the whole trip. If I could I'd trade in the vest for a size M instead of S. But I'm OK with the small for now... I also have the woodsman pants. The sheer quality of the products has definitely put me in the market for a Baslisk Jacket and Pants. If you don't have a heated vest yet, make sure you get this one. Cheers!

Thanks for your review Henri! Yes, the Ectotherms run a bit small. Please contact our CS team, maybe we can find a solution how to exchange it for a medium sized jacket!

Great jacket!

This is in anyway a great jacket. i felt the heat after 3-5 seconds, even around my neck :-) Now I just hope that the jacket is made of quality material that makes it last for many years! The next version comes with
stepless adjustment? ;-)

Thanks Erik, that's great to hear! We'll have some small adjustments on the new Ectotherms but a stepless adjustment is not on the list (yet) ;-)

Ectotherm + Reckless 80

I'm 5'5, 145 lbs. Small Ectotherm fits perfect. Warm at camp and super warm plugged in on the bike. Jacket allows me to pack one less layer. On the GS1250, the Reckless 80 easily fits with no racks. You can tell riders have put a lot of thought into the design. Small things like the tent pole bag, and easy access beaver tail section make a difference when packing light and fast.

Hey JR,

The Ectotherm is a great travel jacket. We designed it so that it turned into the 'Why not' jacket since it pulls double duty as a warming layer and heated jacket so why not bring it. Stoked to hear you're getting out and using your Ectotherm and Reckless 80L.

Perfect but….

Fits perfect in size L - i am 176cm / 80kg. It is very comfortable to use when riding my under my Badland, but also as a “daily” go-to jacket.
Really really warm when ON / RED. Yellow and green is right now more than enough (+10-15C).
Only “but” is i think the wire in the jacket is to short. If a bit longer you could place the jackplug on the bike more “tight” to the bike. It is only a problem when (if..) you stand up when riding. As it is now it’s good when sitting down, but in-plugs as soon as you stand up. Also to my liking i would prefere that the wire came out through one of pockets, but the solution that Mosko provide is nice.
The neck pice is also good but i would work better if it was a bit higher - like 2-3cm.
Overall i am more than happy with my jacket 😊
Would i buy one again? YES !!!!!! Anytime…

Thanks Lars for taking the time sending us your review! The next version of the jacket will have a longer cable on the jacket side :-)
We're glad you love the jacket!

Love it!!

Very well constructed and super warm and comfortable. Definitely you need to size up. I ordered a Medium, which is what I normally wear and need to replace it with a Large once back in stock.

Hey Glenn,

Thanks for the feedback. We've heard this from a few customers and will be passing this along to the design team.

Ectotherm Insulated 12v Heated Jacket

Wondering when the new 2022 Apparel styles will arrive? 
Check out the Product Availability Roadmap.


We added carbon fiber heating elements to a kick-ass technical puffy, and the ‘Ectotherm’ was born. When you’re sitting around the campfire or lounging in your tent, it’s a super warm insulator with 100g body-mapped synthetic PrimaLoft Gold insulation with Cross Core Technology.

Connected to the bike, it adds a 6-panel carbon-fiber 3.5Amps/42w heating system powered by the bike. That extra warmth takes the edge off long, cold, wet, pavement stretches; keeps you warm on high alpine passes; adds new enjoyment to early spring and late fall trips, and ensures you’re ready for anything a multi-year/multi-season RTW journey can dish out.

The Ectotherm is your ‘ace in the hole’ for staying sane and happy when the weather turns brutal. The name comes from Ectothermic, a scientific term for animals that exchange body heat with external sources. Like a lizard basking on a hot rock.

*Ectotherm sizing runs small. We recommend one size up from your usual preferred size. 

Unlike conventional heated liners the Ectotherm is a fully functional stand-alone synthetic insulation layer. By combining the functionality of a technical puffy and a heated liner we’ve added even more performance and versatility to a layer that we rarely leave home without. Now you can enjoy the comfort of onboard 12V heat without over burdening your pack space. Pair it with heated grips and hand-shields to create the ultimate minimalist heat system for backcountry and RTW travel.

Built with 100g of PrimaLoft Gold Insulation with Cross Core Technology at the core and 60g in the underarms to reduce bulk under armor, the Ectotherm is well equipped for any cold weather trip. This high-tech insulation combines PrimaLoft Gold, with aerogel technology, to provide up to 52% more warmth than the same weight of PrimaLoft Gold Insulation alone. This enables us to achieve both enhanced warmth and decreased weight. Integrated directly into the fibers, aerogel further enhances the performance of synthetic insulation. Now not only will it perform better than down when wet, it will also perform better when compressed under armor.

To further battle the chill of riding in the cold, we added 6 thin, flexible carbon fiber heat panels in the collar, arms, left and right chest and back. Activate the heat with a hem mounted controller to toggle through 3 levels of 3.5amp/42w heat to maximize comfort. The system is powered by your bike’s 12V battery (wiring harness included) for heat that lasts as long as the ride. When it comes to cold weather riding the Ectotherm Insulated 12v Heated Jacket is a powerhouse of comfort when pushing the boundaries of riding season.


*Ectotherm sizing runs small. We recommend one size up from your usual preferred size. 

The model is 6ft tall, 175lbs, and wearing a size Large.
