Not Feeling Real Good About My Purchase
January 17, 2013(Cumberland, VA)
I am on my third pair. The first two only lasted for a few hours before the left hand glove just quit heating. I just got the third pair and have not had a chance to use them yet. The fit is a little long in the fingers which makes it hard to get the Velcro closures open. The gauntlet is very soft leather. Would have been nice if it was a little stiffer. I'm not feeling real good about it at this point. I will post more if I have problems.
No complaints so far

First season with these gloves. Had some issues with the first ride, but not sure it's a problem with the gloves so much as the fuse or adapter connection. When they were operating, they were great, even on very low setting in mid-40s at highway speeds. Use them unplugged on short commutes in cold weather (~50f) and they keep hands warm after 30 minutes. Will see about durability after some more use. Made in Pakistan. Fit and finish seem fairly reasonable for the price.
Just get them

Purchased for year round 1 hour drive primarily at 70-80mph with little wind blockage. Gloves alone work good down to 50 deg. I have ridden them in 25 deg and they are plenty warm at 3/4. Be sure to read sizing chart and get them tight because it has to be tight to work. Thumbs are a little long, and you can feel the wires, unlike Gerbing. I like the feel and carbon fiber on these better than Gerbing though.
Love these gloves

After freezing my "you know whats off" last winter I decided to get some heated gloves as my hands always seem to be cold when riding in the cold. No matter how much I bundle up. These gloves really do the trick! Now even on the coldest mornings, my fingers and hands stay nice and toasty warm. A little cumbersome with the wiring plugged in, but SO worth it in warmth.
Better than Heated Grips

I wish I had bought these sooner. They look and fit well, and when the rest of my riding friends needed to stop to thaw out their hands, I had to try really hard not to snicker. My only complaint is that a few times when I had the temp controllers up high, my pinky fingers were uncomfortably hot.
Warm but not hot

Not much bulkier then my race gloves. The gloves are not hot, more like luke warm but warm enough to keep my hands from freezing. Tested in 25F weather. The insulation in the fingers is light and one wire irritates my ring finger after an hour. Palms are unheated to reduce bulk, consider using heated grips as well.
The wiper blade on the left thumb is a nice touch.

These gloves are awesome. I have not ridden a full winter season with these gloves so I may not have had enough time in them to give the best quantitative review. However, because of these gloves I have ridden more this winter than ever before. Some have argued that the fit is too tight. I would tend to disagree. Not only does it fit true but it must be snug on the skin in order to warm your hand.
Comfortable but lasted one season.

I liked these gloves but used them infrequently. Even so, the wires in both gloves apparently broke after the first season since there is no longer electrical continuity in either glove. Unfortunately, by the time I realized the problem, two years and the warranty had passed.
Nice and warm!

I bought a size Large and normally wear Medium in gloves just about everywhere else noting people say the run small (I also checked the sizing chart and I was at the high end of Medium). They fit very well, only slightly tight by the knuckles. I can only slightly feel the heating wires occasionally as some people complain. They are warm even without heat (warmer than my insulated Joe Rocket gloves) and are much less bulky! With the heat on they keep my hands nice and warm going down the interstate in the mid 30's on a hour+ ride. I use these with a 65W jacket, pants, and socks. My biggest concern is that the Velcro won't last 2+ years, which is disappointing for the price.
Huge and Hot (and not in a good way)

The thumb was a mile long and I still have burn marks across my ring finger...returned them for the standard pair and am much happier. The standard pair fits my hands much better and very comfortable. I guess if I ever slide across the pavement on my knuckles I’ll regret my decision to return them.
