Gerbing 12V Lady Rider Heated Gloves
Gerbing, enough said.
True to it's makers reputation, these are great gloves.
The only mild concerns are that the opening could be wider to go around a jacket sleeve, and the gloves are bit oversized.

purchased these for my wife last fall and they are the first gloves she has had that the fingers were not to long fit great, heat well and do the job, only downside is the cuff is two small to allow it to go over the jacket sleeve and has to be worn inside the sleeve, thought that would be an air infiltration problem but she says its not, a larger gauntlet cuff would make these perfect

keeps your 4 fingers toasty, thumb may be a little cold
I love the style of these gloves. I have a tiny hand and the xs fits pretty well but the fingers are a bit long.
pros: great style, feminine and functional
cons: doesn't seem to heat evenly, my thumbs get cold and turning up the heat causes my palms get too hot, also the fit is small around the wrist which is a bit awkward. i bought these gloves after trying them on at the store, but without my jacket on. once i got them home i realized the give in the area around the wrist and forearm of this glove is too big to fit easily under my jacket, but too small to place over my jacket sleeve. so i have to wear them over my thermal thiner, but under the jacket- trust me, not an easy task

Can't make up my mind
On the up side, the gloves are very warm and true to fit. I like the way the various straps really cinch the glove onto my hand. With NixWax on them, my hands stay dry even in pouring rain. On the downside, the heat in uneven. Even with a temperature controller, the back of my hands get burnt while my finger tips are numb. But mostly, they are a pain to put on. As with any gear, it took a few tries to get everything settled. The wiring is bulky and for comfort's sake I ended up connecting the gloves to wiring harness outside the jacket, creating a good deal of excess wiring between the glove and jacket. This brings me to the biggest complaint I have about these gloves: the tiny cuff. Not only is it short, but it is small in circumference. I may have small wrists, but when I put on my bulky winter coat, the gloves barely fit over the jacket. I often end up with one glove on properly and the second one sort of half way done up. The men's gloves have enormous, wide open cuffs and it bothers me to no end that the cuffs on my gloves are so small. Perhaps Gerbing thought women would want more stylish looking cuffs, but I can assure you, the last thing on my mind at 80 mph in 25 degree weather is style.
Would I recommend them? Eh. I guess, but only because there's really not a whole lot else to choose from.

Great fit, great function
Got this for my girlfriend for Christmas. They fit great and she was thrilled. Haven't had a chance to hook them up yet, she'll post a review once she does.

The Gerbings Lady Rider gloves were a complimentary upgrade after I suffered a bad burn from the heating unit of the Gerbings Glove Liners. (Joel in Customer Service Rocks!) Just had my maiden voyage with my Lady Riders and they worked great. Very comfortable. Only issue is that they're a bit bulky and hard to put on. I slightly ripped the stitching of the leather velcro strap on my first try putting them on when I used it for leverage to pull the left glove up once already wearing the right. :o/ It's not enough to make me send them in for a return though. Also, it would be nice to have a visor wipe on the thumb, but I can live without it. I'm much happier to have these than the glove liners, so gonna carefully restitch the strap by hand, and it should be fine.
