Powerlet rapidFIRe Heated Glove Liner Kit
Frozen Fingers Fixed
Fit well and do an amazing job. The material is thin and adds very little bulk, and most MC Winter/Waterproof gloves are really too bulky already, more about this below.
As i have read in other reviews a setting above 3 on the controller will make the thin skin on the lower knuckles too hot. (re-design this with an unheated area over the lower knuckles would be a good idea)
The good news is that on setting "3" (of 5) I stayed very comfortable on a two hour ride in 28F temps with these liners along with a heated vest.
These liners will fit under my Triumph Mesh Adventure gloves thanks to the elastic panels on the fingers. This is good down to the lower 40F temps. Below that a good wind-blocking over glove is required.
Finding other motorcycle gloves to fit and allow adequate dexterity didn't turn up any winners at the stores I visited to try on gloves with the liners.
After exhausting local MC shops I found an excellent glove at REI (Mountain Hardware - Men's Epic) and it works remarkably well with the liners to block wind and water for use in temps at and below freezing.
Overall I'm very satisfied with the purchase and these complement the heat from a Tour Master Synergy vest nicely. Looking forward to expanding the envelope of my riding season thanks to these two products that provide IR heat from conductive fabric technology.

These gloves are fantastic!
I have a competitors heated gloves and they lack a heating element in the thumb. These put out a very nice even zone of heat all across the backs of each finger and thumb and the back of the hand. With just these liners and a pair of leather gloves, my hands are comfortable down to about 45F with just the power from the jacket liner and not using the dedicated glove controllers. I'll have to see how the controller works when it gets colder.
Definitely recommend these liners!! They are great!!

Bought these for winter commuting to work. keeps figer tips warm. Only need low and med settings. Wiring was easy.
You have to wire the power source to the battery and run the cables down you sleves . With this setup it would be nice to be able to buy a adapter that went to your charger hook up I.e battery tender bi plug.

I have enjoyed the gloves so far! I never thought I would be a S/M glove, but these seem to run big. I originally ordered the L/XL and they were big in the fingers. Just got the S/M today and they fit perfect. Be careful when ordering or you may end up returning for another size!
Customer service is unbelievable. This was my first deal with Revzilla and it was amazing. I sent the gloves back Monday afternoon and received them today. The turnaround was great and I am ready for the cold temps coming next week. Highly recommend the gloves and highly recommend the company for any motorcycle needs!!

Great so far
Have enjoyed the liners so far. They fit well and heat up evenly. Setting them to 3 seems to work well for around 30s temperature.

Excellect way to protect your hands from the cold!
I purchased this heated glove liner kit about 2 years ago so I can extend my riding into the winter months, provided no snow is on the roads. Before I purchased these my hands were frozen when riding in any temperature below 40 degrees. After I purchased these it was night and day difference in comfort and mobility of the fingers. Makes the winter commute on the bike much more enjoyable and the fingers stay comfortable. Recently the thumb and index finder on the left hand dont heat, giving me a trip down memory lane of what it was like before purchasing these. I highly recommend this product and will save money in the long run if you are able to use the bike vs. the car, in daily commuting. Just Makes just going for a ride during cold temperatures fun.

This worked very well for me
I ride all year round and tried many different types of gloves I got tired of cold hands so it was time to upgrade. After looking at many sets I found these, it was the best deal around so desided to give it a shot. Hook up was simple and in no time I was riding with toasty warm hands. Why did I wait so long! I'll never have cold hands again. They have 5 heat levels so far I have only needed level 2, this is great, I do recommend this set.

Awesome product!!! I rode to work one morning with 28 degree temp, without these gloves, didn't get too far before my hands were numb. I had to pull into a DD and thaw out. So I figured what the heck I'll try these glove liners. Well, to my surprise, these things are AWESOME!!! At first I was thinking; could these things really work as advertised? I read all the reviews and was a little reluctant, but I had nothing to lose if I wanted to continue to ride in the colder weather. These glove liners are thin and very comfortable, they fit under my regular heavy riding gloves, which by the way, did not keep my hands warm enough to ride more than 20 minutes. I have since ridden on 28 degree mornings here in N.E., and I could only put the heat setting on 3, I tried 4 but it was way too hot. Just remember to push and hold the ON button each time you plug in the harness, as the controller is tucked inside your jacket and will be unreachable while riding----my only negative comment---it would be nice to have external controls that are glove friendly.
