Gerbing 12V T5 Hybrid Heated Gloves
These gloves work as intended with the 12v hookup. I haven't tried with batteries yet so I might have revisit this review. Size was slightly larger than expected but I decided to keep them anyway. I picked the sized based of my previous G3 Gerbings gloves but these gloves were larger by comparison for the same size (XL).
I love the red material on the inside it feels great on the hand. The only thing I can see as a negative by my own personal taste is the velco wrist strap. It looks like it could break off one day by how it looks. It is solid when you secure so that just may be me worrying for nothing.

Great American fit
The cloves fit true to size they are comfortable and warm but the battery fit leaves a little bit to be desired. When hooked up to the batteries there's just too much cable and no place for it to go without jamming it in the pocket which makes it a little bit uncomfortable. I would recommend this to a friend.

These Gloves r as soft as other people describe and heat up exceptionally well. I like the "pulse " of instant heat as soon as u switch on. that's GREAT. the Problem is the wires. I don't know why, the wire only needs to be long enough to go thru the glove to the battery pouch to the inside glove wire. Like 1-1/2 inch. but it's like 6" .the battery wire connection is another 6". so what r u going to do with 12" of wires? Right tuck it in the pouch. But why all the wires. If u charge every day or so as I do it is a major hassle. I will have to MOD this, this is unacceptable 2 me. Good Luck and Happy Riding.
FYI i gave a low "air flow" grade because I don't want any airflow.
Take they're recommendation and waterproof right away. I used natural bees wax and buffed them. Works Well. You don't want to F@*# these up.

this is new
The gloves are not like the old T-5 style. Now you are forced into buying the hybrid, without the power packs. The cuffs seam tighter then the originals. Depending on your jacket bulk you may not be able to tuck the connectors inside exposing them to the elements. But they are warm and the best winter ridkng gloves you can get.

Great cool weather glove
I got this for winter riding to replace my old winter gloves that didn't protect in the cold at all. These work great in 50F + temps with just a little heat to no heat in the gloves. at around 45F for 30 minutes of high way riding with full heat, my fingers felt a little cool but not cold. I would relate it to riding in 55F temps with no heat at all. When I rode in around 40F temps with full heat, it felt like there was no heat at all and maybe a 1/3 into my ride my fingers/hands were already painfully cold.
To put this into perspective, I ride a sport bike with no heated hand grips and full hand exposure to the wind and elements.
As for fitment, I usually wear a size medium in gloves, but these are a bit big, I think I would've been better off if I had sent them back and got a small instead. They do seem to run at least a little larger than my other gloves (racing, gauntlet style gloves# do.
The liner inside the gloves is very soft and comfortable and feels good when you put the gloves on. You don't even notice the heating element inside the gloves, which is the exact opposite in my other heated gloves, the elements have sharp solder points and they poke against my hand.. ouch.. So I really like these gloves for the comfort factor.
All in all though, I do like the gloves, but for 40fF temps and below, I would recommend using gloves that provide more protection if your bike doesn't have heated hand grips or hand guards to shield your hands from the elements. I also wouldn't recommend these gloves in 75F+ temps either, they can get pretty hot, pretty quickly in warmer/hotter temps. These will be my late fall, most winter #above 45F) and early spring gloves for sure.

I ordered the gloves for my husband's birthday and he absolutely loves them! They work great whether it is hot or cold and says they are incredibly comfortable. I would recommend these to any fellow rider. They fit true to size and are definitely worth every penny.

Better then expected
Not only do these gloves keep your hands really worm, but the lining in them is so extreamy soft that it makes you look forward to any cold day that alows you the wear them. The fit and finish on this product lets me know that I'll have them for many many years.
