Tour Master Synergy 2.0 Heated Leather Gloves
I wear Medium Rev'It Jerez gloves, but Small in anything "American" cut, so I went with Small Tourmaster gloves.
These are very warm. I only intend to wear them down to about 40 degrees and at 50, I didn't really need the heat on at all. Installation to my SV650 was easy and I used safety pins to hold the wiring inside the lining of my jacket.
Three very small gripes: the lining of the glove floats over the insulation so be careful of getting your fingers caught like in the palm area and tearing the lining. (This happened on my old Power Trip unheated gloves)
I also wish there was a little more hard protection on these gloves, even if it's just TPU.
Lastly, the leather is very slick. It's actually fairly difficult to remove one glove while wearing the other. It doesn't affect how I work the throttle, clutch or brakes.

Great glove--Barely need to use electric
Large fit a little snug but seems to be breaking in well.
High quality leather. Go treat yourself.

No more cold hands
These gloves are awesome. Fit well, warm and comfortable. I usually don't need to turn them on until the temperature gets below 45 degrees. Road in 36 degree weather with the controller set on three and stayed nice and warm. My wife also bought these gloves and loves them.

Warm Fingers Happy Rider
If you ride in cooler weather these gloves can make your ride so much better. Given the choice between taking a few extra minutes to plug up or be cold, I'll choose the first option. All winter gloves are bulky so there is no surprise here. Tour Master made theses waterproof so in addition to saying warm you stay dry. Fit is good and the more you use them the softer they become. Good product.

Good fit, value and effective
Size chart fairly spot on, went with XL in these although I'm a 2XL in Technic summer gloves.
Don't feel as hot as expected but they worked going by how cool the rest of my riding gear suddenly felt (RST PARAGON with liner). Wasn't till I stopped to admire the view on mountain pass and took them off that I realised how well they were keeping my hands warm. Not sure of temp but this road has all day patches of ice in the shaded parts!
First pair of heated gloves so can't compare brands but happy.
Could do with extending the palm protection part a little more towards the wrist but good feel and control riding DR650.

Great Glove No Matter What
So it has taken me a while to right this review because here in Arizona it has not gotten cold until this week. I will say as gloves these are very good in the cold. I have been riding in 40-50 degree weather without plugging them in and they have kept my hands very warm. I have taken these on several rides to work in the morning and around the state and have not had any issues. This morning when I went to work it was 32 degrees out and thought it might be time to plug them in. Once I got the dual controller figured out (anciently had the controls switched in my mind) they dialed in great and I had nice warm fingers.
I am a size 10/11 in Held glove and based on the sizing chart it looked like I was going to be a large. I went with an X-Large (which I know goes against convention for winter gear) but for me it worked out just right. The fit is great.
The lining is soft and comfortable. Of course being winter gloves they are a little bulky, but the soft leather seems to give my more control then the Cortex textile winter gloves I had last season.
One bonus is you get the battery hookup, single controller and extension cables to use right out of the box. I did not need them because I got the Tour Master 2.0 Jacket Liner. These hook right into the extension cables in the lower part of the sleeve of the jacket. With the dual controller that comes with the jacket these work great.
I would highly recommend these gloves and the whole Tour Master 2.0 line.

Heated gloves work well
The Tour Master Synergy 2.0 Heated Leather Gloves work well for me...i did expect a bit more heat (the jacket liner heats better).
With that said, have worn the gloves on a couple day at 36 degrees and my hands did not get uncomfortable.
The tips of my fingers did get cold but not o the point of getting numb.
Colder winter mornings on the way so will see how things go.
I do like the fact that the rheostat control came with the gloves but used the dual that came with the jacket liner.
