Anyone using Gerbing T5 with Warm & Safe Generation 3 gear?

I sent a message to W&S to find out if they are compatible, if they are compatible, I'm curious how well they work together.

I *think* my new Gerbing Gloves are T5 (they are the latest) and I have a Warm and Safe Gen 3 Waterproof Jacket at the Post office waiting to be delivered. WIth luck I'll have it tomorrow.

It was -8c/17f when I left home this AM so the timing is good!

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)
SMIDSY detailed report.

Each will tell you the other's connections may be troublesome. I've had zero problems running W&S gloves and jacket liners with Gerbing pants liners and boot soles though.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

My Jacket came this aft. It isn't gong to be as cold tonight when I head home at 8pm but should be at freezing. I went up and checked that all the connections would work and it looks like it should be fine.

My setup wil be:

Gerbing dual controler and Gerbing Gloves and now the Warm n Safe Waterprof Jacket. Only negative is that it looks like Warm n Safe has really set things up for the remote Heat Troller (which I don't have.) the cables are short but there is one adapter to effectively lengthen the power to the jacket There isn't for the glove connection. I think I will still be able to make it reach all right though (and if not I think the short included "Y" adapater could effectively lengthen the power to the Glove Side of things.

As expected it worked together just fine!

The Warm N Safe jacket is extremely warm! It was around freezing point on the way home. I had it under my work suit jacket and a thin shell over them then the Roadcrafter. I generally had the heat for the jacket at about the lowest setting. Every so often I would check on it and crank it up and literally in a few seconds it was hot.

Great gear!

Both pairs of gloves were too big in XL, so I have to send them back. Gerbing is a little more stylish than First Gear, but they both are pretty much the same.
