Best electric gloves
I had a pair of Gerbing Hybrid gloves, which seemed like a good idea - plug them in on really cold days when I'm wearing my Gerbing liner or use the internal battery on cool days when I just need hand warming. Well, it didn't work out well - the small integral batteries proved worthless and the gloves started to fall apart after two seasons.
These First Gear plug-in gloves appear to offer more protection and style with the carbon fiber knuckle protectors. They plug-in and work perfectly with my Gerbing liner and dual controller. They are comfortable and very warm. My only gripe is the cheap elastic/velcro closure for the gauntlets that is a glaring fault on an otherwise nicely designed and functioning glove.
As I've only had these for one season, I can't comment on long term durability, but so far, so good. I'm happy with the purchase.

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.

First Gear Carbon Heated Gloves, Great but didn't last 3 years
I bought these in April 2012 and early fall 2014 the left glove has stopped heating, so although I like the gloves I didn't buy them a second time. Also, the heating elements is only on the top side, so I needed heated grips down into the teens (F).

I really like the protection these gloves offer and will continue to wear them when i don't need heat, but it is cool out, as they are insulated and good down thru the 40's F. In the low to mid 40's my heated grips in combination with these insulaled gloves work fine.

I just bought a pair of Gebring heated gloves ($199 at Revzilla), I received them in 2 days for free (THANKS!) and they are heated top and bottom, so on our clubs 5th annual New Years Day ride (to Woodstock, NY) this year) they worked so well I didn't need my heated grips at all, in mid 20 degree F temps all day!

Long story short, I really liked the First Gear Carbon Gloves for fall protection, and when they worked they offer heat down to 32 degrees or so without heated grips, but below 32 degrees F I needed the grips on as well. I also have Barkbuster Storm hand guards on my Vstrom to cut the wind, FYI.

FG Carbon gloves offer great water protection for a day or so, but tend to saturate after 2 or 3 rainy days. Drying them at night via a boot dryer can alleviate this issue.

Now that I've worn the Gebring heated gloves, I have to say the Gebrings are much better for cold weather (down to the teens). If, however you are looking for awesome gloves in the 35-50 degree ranges, that offer water protection I'd highly recommend the First Gear Carbons.

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.

Great cold-weather electric glove!
I bought these a couple of months ago for cold-weather riding (<40deg) after being disappointed by the warmth of the Held Twin gloves I bought last Spring and the cheap Slider Cold Pro gloves before them. The only gloves that kept my hands warm down to around freezing before these were the JR Nitrogen, but the protection was limited and they were still a bit bulky. I figured since I already had a heated jacket, I may as well just splurge on heated gloves at this point. I use them with a Powerlet jacket and wireless dual controller.

Well, let me just say I am extremely glad I bought these. Contrary to some other reviewer's comments, I think they are very comfortable, offer more protection than most other heated gloves, and are warmer than just about any cold-weather glove I've ever had, even BEFORE you turn on the electrics! I'm not sure why, though, as they don't seem to be very bulky or stuffed with extra insulation. Not complaining, though... The heating elements seem to be only on the back of the hand, but that's fine, as I just use my heated grips as well. The material of the gloves is not so thick that the heat from the grips isn't felt - a problem I've had with some of the other winter gloves I've tried.

I've worn them a few times, but this past weekend my truck was having a problem, so I rode the bike, even though the weather wasn't ideal. It rained steadily all day and was around 45-50 degrees. I figured I could hold out for the 2 hour trip I needed to make. Well, after a truck fire stopped traffic dead my 2 hour trip was going on 5, and I was a bit worried that my gear wouldn't hold up. The outer layer of the glove's leather got soaked to the point I could wring them out by making a fist, but except for a little water near the cuff where I didn't tuck it under my jacket well, the inside of the glove remained dry. Overnight, though, they didn't dry well and got very damp inside (though this was partly my fault for leaving them in a cold garage instead of bringing them inside). I put on a pair of glove liners and wore them for the ride home in ~40-degree weather. The whole time the electrics kept working. I was very impressed.

The one thing I would change, though, is having better Velcro on the cuff. It's very light and doesn't always hold well. If they make this change, I will immediately buy another pair and hang onto my current pair as backups. I'll also get my hands on some Nikwax leather water-proofing wax and give them a good coating before wearing them in the rain again.

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.

Pretty good
I've been riding with these for about 3 months,
a couple thousand miles with temps 25F to 45F.
I ride a fairing-less bike about 50 minutes each way, about 25 miles.
The back of the hand and fingers are reasonably warm.
The weak area is probably the thumb and extending towards the palm.
The gauntlet is not that long, so sometimes there is a back-draft of coldness that gets in that way.
Overall, not too bad.
I've had no spills, so I can't really vouch for the degree of protection, although that was a primary factor in my choice of these gloves.

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.

Great heated gloves!
Even without being turned on they keep my hands warmer than my normal gloves due to the fact that they're wind proof (vs normal gloves which are often vented). The heating elements running down each finger do a great job keeping your hands toasty warm even in really cold temps. I can't speak directly to their crash worthiness but my impression is that they should offer better protection than some other brands/models of heated gloves, many of which aren't leather or aren't reinforced in the palms and/or other typical stress points. Only negative so far would be price. You really need a controller and you either have to buy an additional Y-cable or a heated jacket/jacket liner. Add up everything you need and you'll have spent a lot of money.

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.
A shopper on Oct 7, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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.
Deny P.
A shopper on Jan 3, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Does the finger tips are heated or only the back of the hand? The finger tips needs a lot more heat than anywhere else.
A shopper on Mar 23, 2013
BEST ANSWER: yes it keeps the tips of the fingers warm, heating over the top, not the bottom. so a tight fit is requried
Dear Mr
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?
A shopper on Nov 8, 2011
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Would these work with the JOE ROCKET BURNER HEATED GLOVES BATTERY SET?
Olly on Nov 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The gloves will work with a controllable 12V DC power source with a compatible coaxial connector. The only thing the gloves do is heat up when 12V DC is applied to them, they don't have a controller or any electronics. So if the other brand has the right connector and some way to control the power level, you'd be good to go.

Looking at the battery pack and connectors, I can't tell if they're the same voltage and connector size, it looks like they are not the same size so I would say they probably do not work.
