Gerbing 12V EX Heated Gloves
Had to swap from large extra large to get comfortable fit as large was a bit tight. Only got to wear this pair once before too warm for them but worked great and felt good. Look forward to next cold season.

Great with my Gerbing Jacket
Im riding through the winter, commuting to NYC thanks to my gerbing gear. I highly recommend the gloves as a great complement to my heated jacket.

Not Even Remotely Water Proof or Resistant! Gortex Option?
I purchased these a few months back getting ready for the winter riding season. The reviews were positive but I always wondered WHY can't you get these with Gortex yet? Yeh Yeh....I have heard all the talk about the Gortex trademark...Blah Blah. But really what is the use in a decent glove if your hads get wet when it rains.
It was raining not sprinkling and these were very wet in 1 hour even with BMW hand guards with the extra deflector bit.
I would gladly pay more for the Gortex added feature.
Now the positives...Gloves fit perfect, no pinches anywhere when on the grips and the heat is really well distributed.

Good product overall, the gauntlet part could be bigger to fit over the jacket sleeve. The part that connects to the jacket is a 90 degree plugin and should probably be straight so the wires tuck in easily. But it works as intended.

Good gloves for the right climate
I received my EX gloves for Christmas but haven't had much a chance to wear them for I live in So Cal. and you know how So Cal. is in the Winter...warmer than some places Summers!
Pros: The gloves are nice and warm very well and get warm quick...really quick! I do like that. The gloves are very comfortable
Cons: the gloves are way too bulky! I do not like the way they feel when riding...too much glove and not enough feel. Now, this next comment is strictly a "con" because of wear I live but the gloves are too warm! I don't have to use the heat because they are warm enough without it...even in temps around the mid to hi 20's #Fahrenheit#. These would be great gloves for really cold temps but I don't know that they're great gloves for riding. I like to feel what I'm doing when riding and can't with these gloves on.
I just purchased a pair of Alpinstar WR-3's to replace the Gerbings for my normal "cold weather" riding. I'm keeping the Gerbings in case I ever run into really cold weather but that will be the only time I ever wear them and it will have to be REALLY cold for an extended period of time.
So, the conclusion is that the Gerbings are goods gloves but not for Southern California riders... they're very warm and WAY too bulky. will be good to have in extreme conditions which is why I'm keeping them in my side bags.

Excellent cold weather choice
I'm riding across the USA in February along the I-10 corridor. Lots of hours riding with temps as low as 31 degrees. These gloves and the Gerbing heated jacket liner kept me comfortable and warm. Expensive, but worth every penny. Be sure and get the dual temperature controller so you can different temps for your items.

They fit, unlike other Gerbing EX line products
These fit me in a large but the gauntlet is too small.
I ordered the EX pants, jacket and gloves all at once and am probably going to send back everything due to fit problems with the pants and jacket (pants much worse than the jacket)
Can't speak to how they work since I only tried on glove on.
But the excellently built EX line has some real fit problems.

No Buyer's Remorse
About a week and a half ago, I went to the local Cycle Gear and bought a pair of their Sedici Hotwired heated gloves. I had decided that since it was going to be in the teens the next morning and I could get some heated gloves the night before instead of waiting for them too arrive from 'zilla, I make a more convenient purchase. I could just barely get my hands into the opening of the large glove. It was going to be in the teens the next morning and the gloves were right there so I bought them and installed the wiring harness. They were plenty warm. Even too hot on high setting. I just had one big problem with them- the fit and dexterity. I had too much glove finger left over at the end of my fingers and thumbs, I had problems with working the controls because I couldn't feel them, and they bunched up in the palms too much which got in the way of controlling the throttle.
I decided that if I was going to shell out a wad for a pair of gloves, they should have a proper fit and dexterity along with being warm enough when turned on so I did some more homework on the EX gloves as compared to the other Gerbing models and decided to buy them.
I bought according to the sizing chart and got them two days later. These gloves fit my hands like they were tailor-made for them. I hooked up the harness and gave them a test drive in the mid thirties. They are well articulated for grabbing the grips with very little bunching in the palms, I can feel and work the controls with ease, and they are just as easily as warm as the Sedici's so I made a return trip to Cycle Gear for a refund.
As others have said, the cuff could be a little more generous. Also, my hands tend to sweat in them which makes them a little hard to put back on when I have to take them off for a brief period because of a wet liner. Still, I have put these gloves on just to admire the fit and comfort of them. These gloves are keepers!
