Gerbing's G3 Heated Gloves
Poor Gaunlet Design
When you spend $130 bucks for what appear to be gauntlet style gloves you would at least expect the glove to fit over the cuffs of your leather jacket. That's especially true when you order a size larger to be sure they fit over your jacket cuffs.....nope, don't fit. I don't blame RevZilla, but I can't even return them because, of course, I, "took them for a ride" to see if the heated part worked. Doing so immediately prevents you from returning them.....catch 22......buyer beware. So, I'll take them to a leather shoe repair or similar place and see if they can cut a slit at the wrist portion of the glove and sew the cuts up. Maybe then I can get them over the cuffs of my leather jacket and, no, there's nothing unusual about my jacket cuffs, they fit close to my normal sized wrists. Big Bummer......wish I had read the reviews......I'm far from the first to get this bad news. It would have been so easy for Gerbing to make these adjustable to fit over the cuffs of leather jackets, or any kind of jacket.....good grief. Maybe this is why they are on "close out" sale......?

Awesome Gloves !
I absolutely LOVE these gloves ! I ride in cold weather, and there's nothing like having heated gloves to keep your hands warm. I am glad I made this purchase. GERBING GLOVES ARE AWESOME !

Rode to work in 15 degrees on the highway :)
Comfortable but the gauntlet is tight and will only go over textile jackets. If you are wearing thick leathers get a different style. The gloves and a jacket make riding in the cold easy.

Comfortable, Connect to Tourmaster products.
I have only used these gloves in temps down to the lower 40's so far. They do a fantastic job of heating. They are not too bulky. They connect to my Tourmaster jacket liner so I didn't need a separate controller. Two areas that could be improved since I live in the rainy Northwest, The cuffs could be longer and wider to fit around jacket sleeves better. It would be nice if they were waterproof and have a wiper on the thumb or forefinger. Definitely worth the investment though. They warm your hands and fingers very well.

Warm hands = happy rider.
On a trip from Florida to Alaska this summer I borrowed a friend's Gerbing gloves. I swore it would be the first purchase I made when I got back. It was. Much better than heated handgrips and you can take them when you sell your bike and get a new one.
I was surpised they didn't come with an on off switch, but I was able to work around that. A little pricey, but the colder the temps the greater the value of the gloves.

One BIG shortcoming
Gerbings heated gloves were great. I've worn them for years - riding when the temperature was in the low teens and zero complaints. The new ones - the cuff or gauntlet is much smaller than it appears in the pictures. I am 6'3" and 185 #. I wear a large FXRG Leather Jacket and I do zip the sleeves all the way closed. My wrists and forearms are not large. The large size of these gloves fit my hand and are a little big - but the cuff will just barely start over the end of the jacket sleeves - that is the first glove. Trying to get the other one on with a gloved hand is all but impossible. I had my wife help get them on and at 21º F and 75 mph my wrists were feeling the cold wind very quickly. Please note - the sleeves on the jacket are not short, they are plenty long enough. I am returning these and keeping the ones that are hybrid - because they do have an actual gauntlet. See my review of those also.

These gloves are my first heated gear purchase and I'm thrilled with the fit and comfort. They are expensive but, worth every penny.

these run HUGE
Bought these since I hate freezing my hands. The sizing is way off. I wear a size large in Icon, XL in alpinestars, and in gerbings I'm a small. They only heat the palm but it is enough to kill the cold. Simple to wire up just have to buy a heat control or the 12volt adapter to control the heat. I prefer the 12 volt just easier to reach forward and turn off when they get too hot which does happen. Overall I'm happy with them.
