Firstgear Heated Carbon Gloves 4.4 5 12 12
Great gloves, good heat and protection I bought these to replace some old Gerbings heated gloves. Initially I looked at the newer Gerbings, but the G3 didn't have the protection I was looking for, and the Gerbings T5 had too small a cuff to work with my jacket. What really sold me on the Heated Carbons is the armored knuckles and beefed up protection compared to some other heated gloves. Maybe a small thing, but I also liked that these had a visor wiper! I've been using these Heated Carbon's all winter for daily commuting in Colorado and they work great. They generate enough heat to work pretty comfortably into the low to mid 20's for me, without heated grips. Below those temps I go back to my old heavy duty Gerbings. The heat is even and nicely warms the hand, although if I'm holding the levers at a light the cold comes through the finger tips. There's great feel on the controls because the palm and fingers are not overly thick. The cuff is large enough to work with my Motoport jacket and the wrist strap works well. The overall build quality is great. Initially I had a couple of instances with the liner getting bunched up on the right pinky finger, but once they got seated in a bit it hasn't been an issue. The visor wiper is an excellent feature I've used a lot, and it's large and works well. My hands measure 9" around, a large per the sizing chart, but the large was tight in the knuckles so I went up to an XL and the fit is excellent. April 29, 2014
great very much like these gloves. Haven't tried others to compare against. December 30, 2013
Excellent, high-value heated glove. These are really nice gloves, and to boot, they are compatible with my existing "other brand" jacket liner and heat-troller. I was concerned that my hands would not be warm enough or that I would have hot spots like I have gotten with heated grips (which I ditched) but my fears were unfounded. The heat is subtle without hot-spotting. If you get your temperature right, you barely notice that they're on. I am right in between a medium and a large and the gloves are just a bit large for me - enough that I get a slight air gap in the fingers and thus I don't feel as much heat as I would with a smaller glove. This is simply a minor thing, though, and I would rather have more room in the gloves than have them be too tight. In retrospect, a Medium MIGHT have fit me fine, but I'm using the gloves and I'm pretty happy with them so if I ever have to replace, maybe I'll go with a Medium, but I like the gloves just fine. It doesn't flow a lot of air; it's not supposed to as a winter glove. They appear to be relatively waterproof; while I wasn't riding in a downpour, it was definitely a wet, misty day and my hands never got wet, but they didn't sweat either - nice low heat worked nicely. They're especially effective if you have hand guards that take the wind blast off. The leather is supple without being cheap - reminded me of the Held Steve gloves I used to wear. I am impressed with the construction quality vs. the price paid - as noted, the value is excellent. Definitely one of the better purchases I've made. November 18, 2013
warm hands I wear a medium in most gloves. Medium in these fits well. Appear to be very well made, but have not had them long enough for true comment on durability. Paired with a Warm n Safe jacket liner and dual controller. I believe Warm n Safe makes the First Gear stuff. Even though the gloves are snug, I do not actually feel the heat directly against the skin. Instead, the glove provides a warm environment for your hand. Not hot and clammy, just nicely warm. Exactly what you should want. November 11, 2013
Good, still getting used to them I measured my hand and using the size chart ordered a pair in Medium. The right hand was a bit tight but the left hand was extremely tight, so I exchanged these for a Large. These are a bit loose, but comfortable. Still finding the right settings for these with the heated vest, but they have kept me warm when otherwise I would have been freezing. All good so far. July 29, 2013
Work great, but a bit bulky As far a heating goes, they work great. The heating elements are on the top of the hand only, but I dont find I need for anymore than that (at least at just above freezing). They are a bit bulky though. I purchased an XL by following the sizing chart. When putting the glove on, the inner liner fits properly but there is still quite a bit of leather outter glove that extends beyond the inner liner. This makes it very difficult to handle smaller things such as connecting the plugs for the gear and operating the knobs on my heat troller. It is almost like they have a one size outter leather glove that they just sew different sized liners into. I say follow the size chart. If you are in between, try the smaller size first.

These are the heated gloves to buy! I considered just buying glove liners but decided that a pair of gloves with gauntlets would seal up the glove to sleeve connection and make for more comfortable riding. I wanted a pair of gloves with serious street protection for my hands. These gloves have all the features that anyone who values their hands should want. They heat up really quickly and make my commute a pleasant experience. The sizing chart is a bit off -- suggesting that you may need one size up from your regular gloves. My summer gloves are a medium but according to their chart I need a large. However, after calling in for advice I was told to order a medium and they fit very well. I especially like the additional velcro strap to make the gloves fit really snugly. November 19, 2012
Great winter gloves both powered/unpowered Summary: Works great both with and without power, takes forever to dry. In the sun/clouds/wind, the gloves worked admirably. Did a 600-mile ride with a heat-troller set between 75-100%. Even with my fists in the wind, my hands stayed comfortable for 12 straight hours. For comparison, I've done 300 mile rides with unheated textile "winter" gloves that were absolutely brutal. Did some short 40°F trips around town without power, and my hands stayed plenty warm. Short rides around town with the textile gloves were passable - these are better. I did ride in the rain once, my hands stayed warm but when I got home, the liner seemed damp and the gloves took forever to dry (this may just be how leather gloves are). I set out on the 600-miler with slightly damp gloves, but when powered, I couldn't really tell and they were dry by the time I hit the first gas stop. Not a big deal. October 9, 2012

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Nelson F: Seemed to be the only First Gear heated gloves you had in stock that were cost effective for me. Dec 18, 2013
A shopper asked: Interested in buying the Firstgear carbon heated gloves because it looks like they have more protection than the Gerbing's T5, BUT can the Firstgear gloves plug into a Gerbing's liner and work with a Gerbing's controller? I don't want to use separate controllers.

I don't think they can, but would like to verify.

RevZilla: We would not recommend mixed and matching different brands of heated gear. Each brand of gear is designed to work with their own temperature controllers and their specific wiring. By mixing different brands together you would void any warranty, and also run the risk of electrical problems. Because each brand designs their gear to be used with a specific gauge of wire, at a certain amperage level, and within their own system, crossing things over could damage the heating elements or controllers.

Bill H: RevZilla's answer is sort of the necessary answer. However…

The gloves are made by WarmNSafe - ask WarmNSafe and they'll tell you - the FirstGear Carbon is identical to their touring glove. They intentionally made the glove compatible with other brands, so as long as you have the standard coaxial connector, you shouldn't have any issues with them. I'm not expressing or implying any warranties, etc, etc, but you should be fine.

A shopper asked: I am trying to decide between Gerbing T5 & Firstgear carbon heated gloves.
Is the back of the hand heated on the firstgear like the Gerbing T5?
Both Brands were the same price. Is the Gerbing better for the extra $25?
Size: My hand measures 8.5", Gerbing chart is a clear medium, Firstgear is on the fence between medium & large?
thanks for your help.

ADVJason: The Firstgear Carbon Heated gloves have heating elements on the back of the hand and fingers only. The Gerbing T5's have them on the back and palm. It is best to get these gloves as snug as possible to maximize heat transfer from the elements to your skin. Jan 16, 2012

SharkRider55: don't know about the difference between the two products, but as stated in other post...best to go with the smaller size as the heat flows better next the skin when the glove is tight (tight should be taken in conjunction with comfort). Mar 28, 2013

Henry K: I would go with a medium -- they are far from snug on my 8.25" hand. And they clearly are a step up in protection. Nov 19, 2012

A shopper asked: Does the finger tips are heated or only the back of the hand? The finger tips needs a lot more heat than anywhere else. Mar 23, 2013

SharkRider55: yes it keeps the tips of the fingers warm, heating over the top, not the bottom. so a tight fit is requried Mar 28, 2013

A shopper asked: Dear M
I want to buy the firstgear heated carbon gloves and I would like to ask the following
1.DC coax battery harness included on the market of gloves ?
2.can operate without heat-troller by buying DC coax plug Y-harness?
Nov 8, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
OldManRick: No, there is no battery harness included with the gloves. The battery harness is what Firstgear calls their 'Heat-Troller,' and it will have to be purchased separately.

No, you cannot operate the gloves without the Heat-Troller, even if you buy the DC coax plug Y-harness. [It would be possible to buy a battery harness from a different company, rather than a Heat-Troller, so long as it used coax connectors.]

The battery harness/Heat-Troller provides the electricity to heat your gear.

The DC coax plug Y-harness just plugs into the battery harness/Heat-Troller with one plug, then splits the electricity into two plugs, so you can heat both of your gloves.

Henry K: Comes with no cables as they usually get plugged into the jacket or liner. Yes you can connect with the heat-troller by why would you want them on full blast all of the time. Your hands will be way too hot on all but the coldest days. Nov 19, 2012
