Gerbing's G3 Heated Gloves
I purchased these after buying the glove liners and not being happy with how they fit under my existing gloves. They fit well (maybe slightly large) but the extra space inside just adds a layer of warm air. The leather is very soft.. very very soft. So there's not much in the way of protection in the case of a slide. The stitching is solid and the gloves look to last me many many years. I plug these into my Gerbings jacket liner on the sleeve and run them both off of a single controller. My fingers have not been cold in any temperature down to 30 degrees.. which is where I draw the line for myself. Great product!

The true solution to cold wheather riding
Forget installing heated grips on all your bikes ($$$) and still having the top of your hands cold. I have been ridding for 30 years, including to Prudhoe Bay AK on a 1200GS ADV with heated grips and it was always marginal. The level of comfort provided by the G3s is without compare. Finally warm hands in 20F weather without boxer gloves feel !!! Have been using them for a full year now, over about 15,000 miles and they age very well. One of the smartest moves for all weather riders after buying a Gerbing jacket.

I've used these gloves several times this year riding in temperatures in the high 30s and they keep my hands comfortably warm.
Sizing does run large. I ordered my gloves according to the size chart and the fit is not snug. One size smaller might have fit better but on the other hand I am pleased with the fit. They do fit slightly on the loose side but I prefer that over being to small.
I couldn't ask for or expect better performance.
The gloves are high quality leather and very stylish.
For wet weather riding the gloves come with an advisory label suggesting you treat the leather with a weather sealant to prevent the leather from becoming saturated in wet riding conditions. I used Starbrite Waterproofing, an excellent liquid product that I treat all of my wet weather gear with.
If your riding in cold weather buy these gloves. Yes, they are a bit pricey but it's money well spent.
I did not purchase the optional temperature control device. I wired my gloves through a togel switch that makes it easy to turn the heat on and off while riding. The gloves do get my hands to warm even in low riding temperature. It is necessary to be able to control the heat to maintain comfort. The temp control offered with the gloves is probably best but switching off the heat with a togle switch does work.

I had some bulky winter gloves and didn't like how they felt on my controls so I decided the Gerbings heated gloves would give me the warmth I needed and not be so thick. They really deliver. I was right in between the large and XL size, so I went with the large and am glad I did because they do stretch a little and now fit perfectly. I run them off of my Gerbings heated vest with a variable controller. My buddies are jealous on our cold weather rides. Totally worth it, don't know how I lived without heated gear before! Revzilla was awesome with super fast delivery, as always.

No more cold fingers
The only thing bad I can say about these is that they seem a little tight in the gauntlet (around my jacket sleeve). Other than that they are great. I love how quick they heat up and I don't feel any cold air at the seams around my fingers. So far these have kept my hands warm and comfortable all the way down in the lower 20's and I ride with my hands in the wind (no fairing).
I haven't gotten them wet yet but I did notice that the mfg suggested that the exterior be waterproofed to prevent the exterior shell from getting waterlogged and heavy. I had a spray on leather water repellant that I used.

This product works very well
These Gerbing heated G3 gloves keep my hands warm in very cold conditions. I have used them while riding in the mountains at about 24-28 fahrenheit, who knows what the windchill factor was. They kept my hands warm and along with the gerbing Jacket liner I was just fine. These gloves do fit very large, I did go down a full size I usually wear Large to XL and got a Medium in the Gerbing G3 gloves. They are kind of cumbersome, but I only wear the G3 Gloves when the temps hits 50 or below. I would highly recommend these gloves for someone that rides in cold temps.

THEY WORK GREAT. they came with all needed parts and easy installation.
Received the gloves, everything was in the package for basic installation, instruction were concise and complete, installation was simple and quick, less than an hour from start of install to trying them out. I waterproofed the gloves, let them dry overnight and left on a ride from NC to FL the next day. The temperature was as low as 36 degrees and while on interstate 95 at speed my hands were warm and comfortable. I ride a 2011 FLHR so I only have a windshield and no wind protection for my hands. The only thing I would change is they could use a larger gauntlet (cuff) to go over my jacket sleeve, but they are warm enough that it is not a big issue.I now have three requirement for my scooters, "thumb-kicker",cruise control and my heated gloves. I must be getting old.
