Gerbing 12V EX Heated Gloves
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!

This is a very warm glove, even without the heat. Well designed and great for those cold mornings. Size was perfect according to the sizing chart.

I've had these gloves for a month now and I absolutely LOVE them.
I've been riding in the 20s-30s for the past week and have really appreciated the temperature range (and heat dispersion to the whole hand) that these glove can go to, but find myself just sitting at one of their lowest settings because they're so well insulated that's all I need to keep my hands warm.
With the added Thinsulate, they're also relatively weatherproof, which as a commuter makes a big difference in the rain.
I would definitely suggest these for anyone looking for a good pair of cold weather gloves. The fit is pretty standard (I usually run a Large, and these fit just right as a Large)

Well worth the money
I purchased these gloves b/c I needed to be able to continue to ride in the winter months. Most of my rides previously consisted of attempting to add a glove liner and/or hand warmers to my winter gloves. However, neither process did the trick, either things go too bulky or the palm of my hands would be warm from the hand warmers, but the back of the hand would still get very cold.
Even though I live in North Texas, it still gets very cold here. For example, I just completed a ride where the temp was 31 degrees and I was soooo glad I had the Gerbing 12V EX gloves. I only had the temperature controller set to about 4 clicks and it was almost a bit too warm on my palms. And I didn't feel a hint of cold weather on the back side of my hands.
In the video, Anthony mentions that they gloves are pretty warm even without turn on the power. I do agree, however, they are not very effective in keeping your hands warm without the power being on. Also, I agree that you definitely want to get the controller b/c as I mentioned previously, I only had the dial turned about a third of the way and the gloves were almost too warm in 31 degree temperatures.
My only slight complaint is that I wish the gauntlet was just a hair larger. Other than that, I would say they are well worth the money spent.

Good fit & quality
I have been pleased so far with Gerbing products and overall quality and fit has been spot on - they do run a bit small as compared to other brands so please check and get one size bigger.

The EX gloves are way warmer than my G3 gloves,both from gerbing. Fit was a little snug but are feeling better everytime I wear them. The only thing I wish they would have done is made the gauntlet a little bigger,it's a little rough getting them over the jacket and I have the EX jacket so I didn't think it would be an issue when I bought them. Not a deal breaker. I would recommend them.

Finally, no more freezing fingers!
In the few times I've worn these, they perform up to my expectations. Coldest so far has been 30 degrees and even at that temperature, full power is too warm. I need either a heat controller or colder weather - I think I'll be getting both!
Great service from Brian at the Philly store.
