Fly Ignitor Heated Gloves
Good Entry-Level Heated Gloves
TL;DR: If you're looking for a solid pair of heated gloves and you 1) don't want to deal with wiring yourself up to your bike and 2) don't want to spend a fortune, then these gloves are a great choice.
I finally had a an opportunity to use them for the first time a couple of weeks ago.
I went on a day trip into the mountains of northern New Jersey. On the way up, I rode without the batteries installed as it was pretty warm when I started the trip and the gloves were comfortable without being heated. (It was in the low 40's.)
By the time I got to the top of High Point State Park, it was in the low 30's and I was chilled to the bone.
I stopped for lunch, installed the batteries (and my jacket liner) and headed home.
I had the power set to only 50% and my hands were quite comfortable - they would have been roasting had I turned them up to 75 or 100%.
In terms of fit, they're pretty spot on: I have small hands and usually wear small gloves, so these fit well.
However, they are a little bulky, making clutch work difficult - especially when things get TOO warm. I wore them again this past weekend and the combination of the bulky filler plus my sweaty hands made for a bit of an annoyance. (I should have brought a lighter pair of gloves for when the day warmed up.)
My only other complaint regarding fit is the cuff. Once the batteries are inserted, it's difficult (especially if your hands are a bit sweaty) to get the cuff up over the sleeves of my jacket.
These complaints are minor, though. I'm glad I decided to purchase these gloves.

Great Gloves for everyday rider
Bought these gloves because i wanted ones i could charge and not have to "plug into" my bike. They are a little bulky, but are extremely warm even with the power off. Wind resistant and at 100% setting they keep your hands nice and warm even at 30 degrees. If you ride year round or in a cooler temperature these are a must.

Love these gloves
I found these gloves to be quite warm even without the electrics
And the warmth with the unit turned on is great, I find that it's best to have the heat on just enough to keep the hands from being cold and not so high as to make them sweat. I found the battery life to be as advertised I truly love the gloves!!!
The only downside is that it takes a long time to dry out the gloves outside area, once their wet.

I have been using these gloves for cold weather riding on my street bike (FZ-09) and quad (Grizzly 700). These have been great. The coldest temp so far was 0 F. At that cold I had the stetting on 100% and my hands were perfectly normal - not cold nor hot. On 100% setting they last about 2.5-3 hours. There are 4 setting (25%, 50% 75% 100%). It comes with a charger that charges both batteries at once. It also comes with a storage/carrying case.
Overall great gloves.

Fly Ignitor Heated Gloves not the best at warming
The Fly Ignitor Heated Gloves are decent gloves that will keep your hands warm, but when turned on they fail the test. They do not warm your hands very much when turned on. There is a slight warming sensation but it will never go past that.
The battery life is decent but after a few uses it seems to hold even less. All in all they are good cold weather gloves but when on a motorcycle they do not keep your hands and fingers very warm.

Great warmth without the bulk!
I love these gloves! The tags on them claim to be wind proof and water proof which isn't in Revzilla's description, so that was an unexpected bonus [HiPORA Liner Breathable, waterproof, and windproof].
The heat is applied around the back (exterior) of the gloves down to the finger tips. I didn't feel any in the palms, but didn't really need it. The gloves aren't bulky and allow for much better dexterity than my heavy winter gloves. Sizing is spot on. Mediums fit my size 9, 3.5" palm perfectly. I haven't had them long, so I can't comment on their durability (yet).
