Zarkie Heated Motorcycle Gear (Venture Heat)
« on: August 08, 2019, 03:43:01 PM »

      

I have just purchased some heated gear from https://www.zarkie.com.au and when speaking to them they agreed to offer a discount to OzSTOC members...  :runyay
Just say you are from the Ozzie ST Owners Club and David recommend you :grin

Have a look at their website because along with the heated gear they a range of other motorcycle gear.
Below is a bit of info from their website :thumbsup


With a full line of heated motorcycle clothing specifically designed and manufactured with motorcyclists in mind, Venture Heat has you covered. No corners have been cut or considerations missed in producing a range of products for winter riding. Whether you feel it in the fingers and are looking for heated gloves, or just need to warm up the core with a heated jacket, weíll have a solution for you.

Venture Heatís 12V heated motorcycle clothing range of products comes with all the wiring needed to connect directly to your motorcycle battery.  However, Venture also has the option, with some of its 12V range, to add a 12V portable batteries to detach from the bike.  This can be used on with all the 12V gloves and the Duo Vest.  The jacket liners and vest liner do not have the portable battery option as they draw too much power to run off lithium battery.
Venture Heat also have a full range of battery heated clothing options that can keep you warm without needing your bike at all.  Click HERE to view our range.

Venture Heatís key products are:

Heated Motorcycle Jackets
Heated Motorcycle Vests
Heated Base Layers
12v Heated Gloves, and Glove Liners


Cheers

Dave Having owned Zarkie gear for over 2 years now and wearing it a lot in my vast travels I can really vouch for its warmth. I have the hard wired version and the first Farkle on BEEstY was the hard wired plug for my Zarkie Venture Heat gear.
I have the whole kit and caboodle being boot liners, pants full vest and gloves. STranger, STrangler and BEEstY have the hardwire connection.
Just this last week I used all the gear all the time on the Border Run and was comfortably warm on low setting. I once did a lot of night riding and on 1 trip down thru Guyra it had snowed (almost) and was in the minus Celsius range  but I was able to continue through the night home because I was warm and my hands didn't freeze from wind-chill.
Its a shame I've already kitted up coz I missed the discount, its not cheap either but worth every penny  but I think I've saved heaps in not needing to motel up from being cold. When I purchased my Zarkie Venture gear I was kept up to date with my order as Scott was waiting on a container held up on a ship.
I have only had 1 problem with the gear, my right arm glove lead has somehow broken wires but I have created a fix using sewing needles to make the connection again. Its something I'll email Scott about, not to seek getting it replaced/repaired but to let them know of a potential issues other people might encounter.
here's a picture of me in my underwear, all heated by Venture Heat supplied by Scott @ Zarkie, the only Australian distributor.
