Joe Rocket dry tech liner?

My JR Phoenix jacket came with a rain liner. Is the dry tech liner they offer the same thing or is it more substantial/warmer? The one I have is just made of nylonish material with no insulation. It breaks the wind but doesn't really offer any warmth so I am looking for something that may be better for the winter. Thanks.

I bought the Dry-Tech liner by itself and it does have some very thin fleece-like material as lining. I love mine here in the Pacific NorthWet as it turns my mesh jacket into a 3-season jacket. Even in mid-summer, we can have some wide temp swings during the course of a day - especially if you factor in the mountain passes. The liner eliminates the need for carrying two jackets for an all-day ride.

You might also consider a heated vest (widder, gerbing, aerostitch). These make a very big difference especially when a insulating layer is worn over them.

Here here for the heated vest. Get one with a heated collar. Makes a huge difference, and gets very cozy.

Thanks for the replies so far. I really am not going to go the heated vest route, oddly enough I don't plan on putting outlets on the bike to heat that kind of stuff. So far the regular liner as a windbreaker and a sweatshirt underneath has kept me moderately warm (down to about 36), but it will be getting colder and I don't think it will keep me warm enough past freezing. I am still waiting on my pants I ordered last month (tell me about it:rolleyes but after I get all that sorted out I should be set for the winter for the lower half of me.

As far as the defroster for the shield, I have had a respro foggy installed in my helmet for a few weeks now and it keeps the fog away, don't know if it would help with frost though, haven't really thought about that yet.

I have found if I leave me helmet over the heat vent the night before I ride it does not fog as much.

FWIW, I think JR has 2 types or maybe an updated version of the Drytech liner.

I bought one and it has a thin fleece inner liner in it. A buddy of mine bought one and it did not. The 2 liners look a bit different as well. Mine has a weave pattern to the outside where his is smooth looking. Mine w/ the fleece is a bit warmer than his.

With a heavier fleece pull over under my JR Rio w/drytech I am OK down to the 40's but I grab my JR Ballistic most times its under 60 and its comfy down to 30's.

I ordered the fieldsheer booster pants from MotoXOutlet. They sent me an e-mail saying it was back ordered and to expect it to ship around 10/27/06. Well no word or pants yet. I have sent them 2 e-mails asking about it and no reply. I have found another place with them in stock (confirmed) who actually e-mails me back, so I may call and cancel my order with motox and go with the other guys, that is if anybody will answer the phone :rolleyes:
