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.

Required for Riding in the Cold Season...
I purchased these gloves as a replacement for my old Gerbing inserts...
In short these are VERY good gloves. Soft leather, roomy, yet quite warm and comfortable for the long rides I take.
First ride with the gloves was nearly all highway for about 5 hours total at 25-35 degrees. My hands were always comfortable and they provided a very good feel on the grips as well.
These do run large! I have VERY large hands and often find it hard to get gloves that fit. The 2XL fit very well and the 3XL were actually too large (something that has never happened to me before...)

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......?
