Reviews & Questions
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I don't think they can, but would like to verify.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
