Heading to the west coast from Ottawa across Canada near the end of September. Need recommendations regarding heated gear.

Let the games begin.

I only have keis heated insoles but they're brilliant, wish I had got them long time ago, three heat settings on controller.

The only heated gear i have is a heated jacket liner. It works well to keep my core warm and makes riding down to about  40 F acceptable -- but 75 F is still nicer.

I have always had heated grips for years and have some to fit on my CB500X but last year I got some Savior heated gloves an I think they are great, so I got a second set and spare batteries.
Also have the Keis heatedwaistcoat that I run off a battery, keeps that cold edge off.Also got the jacket with heated sleeves but that needs a dedicated power socket on the bike.
My boots are Gortex and I just use highest tog rated socks and not needed heated insoles.
Helmet balaclava works for me.
Sometimes I use thermal leggings and padded knee warmers.
If your nuts feel the chill..try those pee pads...they sure make a difference,if you insulate everything else, why not the jewels ? 🥴
