Gerbing 7V Next Gen Heated Gloves
expensive but worth it.
These gloves are very warm. I wish the batteries took a longer charge. IT seems that the batteries do not last as long as the manufacturer says they will last. I use them on the lowest setting and I get 90 min one morning and 60 min the next morning. Re-charging is easy, the gloves are comfortable. I have only used them for hiking thus far so I cannot appraise the wind blocking capability of these gloves. We have had an extremely cold winter so these gloves have been great for me.

I bought these late in the Spring season when I couldn't feel my fingers at the end of a 45 minute ride, even with ski gloves and liners. So, I haven't seen how they'll do in really cold weather (<40F) - I've only had them on medium heat so far. They should get me through the entire season between snow disappearing and reappearing.
The gloves are well-insulated and are too warm for >~50F.
One problem was that there was no paperwork in the box, and nothing available online with Gerbing. I had bought them retail at the Philly store, so I called Revzilla. They apologized and suggested I first contact Gerbing. I did so and they quickly emailed me the directions.

Great but expensive
These are great gloves. They get warm fast and batteries last a long time. I usually turn them on for about 10 minutes to warm them up then turn them off again otherwise they can get too hot and make my hands sweat. They are very bulky in the wrists which is really my only complaint other than the price but that's only because of the battery packs that have to go in them. Overall great gloves but not for the money. If you have the extra money for them great but not the best bang for your buck.

Gerbing Core Heat Gloves Not so Great
Because this is a negative review, I need to say that I own lots of Gerbing stuff that I like, including jacket and pants liners, socks, and four pairs of wired gloves. I also have the large battery pack that allows me to use the wired gloves without being plugged in to the bike. All that stuff is great, and works well.
These new core heat gloves are basically a $100 pair of gloves with an overpriced $150 set of batteries that do not last long enough to be very useful. The fit and finish of the gloves is very good. There are 3 heat settings - low, medium, high. On low the batteries died after 2 hrs and 15 minutes. On medium, they died after an hour. I didn't even bother timing them on high. I contacted Gerbings and the CSR said I should get up to 8 hours on low, so I returned the gloves to Gerbing so they could check whether my gloves or the batteries were the problem. I waited a week and a half and didn't hear from anyone at Gerbings so I called. The technician did not know why my gloves had been returned, since the CSR failed to input the information in their computer system, and no one thought to call me even though my phone number was included in the returned box. Anyway, the tech told me the CSR was wrong. He said the core heat gloves should last 4 hours on low, 2 hrs on medium, and about an hour on high. He returned my gloves with new batteries. The new batteries are a little better than the originals, but I still only get about 3 hours on low, or an hour and a half on medium. Not at all satisfactory. If I had known how poor the battery performance really is, I would not have bought them. I cannot recommend this product.
