Firstgear Heated Gloves
Works as advertised.
One of the gloves came in with some bad and weak stitching, but I used a glue gun and glued down the piece that was loose from the poor stitching. Other than that, the gloves kept my hands warm with and without the juice turned on. The gloves heat the tops of your fingers so if the tips get cold, you just kind of spread your hands and they warm right up. The gauntlets were just a bit smaller than I would have hoped for. Made slipping them over the jacket a little difficult, but once on, no air got in. I do recommend these as I rode in 20 and 30 degree temps with no issues. These were also paired with the jacket liner, pants and socks. I have big hands and selected the XL and they fit perfectly.

These things are actually waterproof! For real!
Couldn't be happier. Without even looking into the fact that these are heated, they are a great glove regardless. They are well finished, comfortable, and most importantly, waterproof! I've ridden through some very nasty weather and arrived with completely fresh dry hands. This has never happened before even though I have purchased "waterproof" gloves in the past.
As for the heating part, it's just bliss. Gentle warm heat on tap. Love them!

No warranty coverage from First Gear
My wife bought a pair of these three years ago. (not from Revzilla) She only rides maybe 10 times a year. Before the end of their first season the left glove failed--no heat. We returned them an they were replaced with another pair, but they filed the same way--left glove-- failed again after 10 uses. We returned them again thru a local motorcycle equipment dealer, but First gear refused to repair or replace them as they are now "too old". Mind you they look almost brand new and have never even been wet. Buy the Gerbings if you want warranty support.

Not hot enough for the really cold temps.
I'm 5.10, 165lbs, wear 32x32 jeans and 41" chest. I bought the jacket, pants, gloves and socks with a duel semi mount heat troller. Jacket is a size Med and I wear it over a tea shirt and under my riding jacket. Fits perfect and is light weight. Not bulky at all as the picture suggests. Pants are a size Med/Lrg. I wear them under my jeans and riding pants. The pants are not bulky either. The socks are a size Lrg. I'm a size 10 boot, and I wear them over regular cotton socks. For the best performance, you want to keep the jacket and pants close to your skin. I have tried wearing the pants over the jeans, but under my riding pants with decreased heat performance. The gloves are a size large and fit well. They seem to be water proof thus far. The jacket, pants and socks heat very well at temps down to 15deg when worn under normal riding gear. The gloves are good down to about 25deg, then fingers start to get numb. The gloves don't seem to be as good at heating as the rest of the gear, but they are quality made. I have tried every hookup combination. But hooking the jacket, pants and socks on one side of the troller, and then hooking the gloves to the other side works the best in my opinion. You can turn the gloves all the way up, and the other components heat so similar that they work well together on about a med, to med high setting. The heat troller is quality and well maid. It has flashing LEDs that are red and yellow, and flash at different rates depending on the setting. Slow flash/low, fast flash/high. All and all I am very satisfied. Quality gear and great service.

These have exactly what they are supposed to be.
Overall I'm quite happy with these. I bought them for street riding on mountain passes, but have been testing them while riding my snowmobile. They work just as expected, and I plug them into my heated jacket liner.
My only reservation so far is that the gauntlet doesn't open sufficiently for a thick sleeve. I can fix that myself.

A top heated glove
I like the fact that these gloves are well insulated. Combined with the electrics it makes for a VERY warm glove. My only complaint is that the gauntlet could be just a bit larger to better fit over a jacket sleeve.

these gloves keep my hands toasty. only complaint is that i lose dexterity just because they are bulkier than normal gloves.
