Warm gloves!
These are my first pair of heated gloves, so I don’t have much experience with other brands. To test these gloves I rode 2,600+ miles in late November. During the trip I encountered abnormally high temperatures in Los Angeles, rain in Northern California and 4 degree temperatures over Donner Pass and South East Oregon and Northern Nevada. I rode over 400 miles in temperatures ranging from 4-26 degrees F (-15.5 to -2.2 celsius) without any issues or cold hands. I was wearing a thin fleece base layer (top and bottom) KLIM Badland pants, KLIM Latitude jacket, Gerbing jacket liner and an additional 200wt fleece sweater. I rode with Gerbing heated insoles and socks, after the first night of 19 degree weather I opted to only run the heated socks. The protection on the gloves seems adequate, floating knuckle guard and two patches of Super Fabric. With the temperature maxed out and my heated grips set to max my palms would burn in anything above 30 degrees. I rarely had my temp controller above 50%. I can see this setup taking me comfortably below 0 F. My layering strategy is to have the active layers closer to my skin and passive layers over the top.

Way bulky - with poor fit
I have used the glove for 6 commuting days.

Pros:
- warms the palm, top of hand and top side of fingers until the tip (I do not feel the heat on the lower side of the fingers, but there might be some)
- can get very warm (I use a dual remote heat-troller with my heated gear, the warm-n safe version of the link I added. FirstGear is just a rebranding of the original), as I've not cranked it up over 50%
- made for motorcycles (knuckle protector, curved fingers)
- lots of insulation (it's also a negative)
- comes with Battery wires, fuses, including Y-cable in case you are not using a jacket. Note: use some heat controller with this.
- the gauntlet part is decent. My kilimanjaro jacket sleeves fit inside, including the wires.
- the wires seems good quality.

Cons:
- the sizing is ridiculous. I'm 4.25-4.5" or just over 9" in measurements. I bought Large, that was not even going to fit. So I moved to XL. The fingers are right for that, but the thumbs have an extra half and inch of length. This is crazy and ridiculous. Maybe someone in the factory took a bigfoot hand as the Caucasian hands model? So once you get the right size, the thumb is going to be way too big. First gloves this happens to me.
- they are SUPER bulky. Think skiing gloves, then add a layer for electric wires... and knuckles protector outside. As a result, I have to ride with 2 fingers on the brake lever, as there's no way I would be able to move my fingers into position fast enough. I think the manufacturer should have made them less bulky, so that electric heat would be needed all the time. Right now they are very warm gloves that have electric heat as an extra. I start with the heat off, and only after a few minutes riding do I start to increase the heat.
- the knuckle protectors form some kind of pocket. I do not know why. They are sewn only on the fingertips side, and not on the wrist side. So in case of crash, I think they will go away / detach. And the rain will get there and be a pain to dry. I don't understand this design decision.
- the retention strap (to keep the glove from leaving your hands if you crash) are pretty useless, like on many gloves. They do not feel strong either when pulling on them.

Overall: I picked these, and it's way too cold (35F the other day, will get worst) for me to not have heated gloves. So I'm keeping them. I hope they will last, as they are super expensive. Next heated gloves (in a few years hopefully), will be lighter-weight.

I do not recommend them, and would not buy them again.

Just one word
When you spend this much for a pair of gloves they should be good all weather items. The original ad described them as waterproof in the general description but water resistant in the "features" section. I have purchased and had good performance from other non gortex membranes, but again these are not cheap. On a recent trip from northern Vermont to Florida in 42 degree rain not only were the gloves soaked through within an hour and they also offered no discernible heat. Mind you I purchased sole inserts, pant liner, jacket liner and dual controller all at the same time so no excuses there. Revzilla refunded me for the gloves, the jacket liner was sent back to gerbing to see if there is an electrical supply problem to the gloves and after a month I am still waiting. All that money for a single interconnected system that will remain incomplete, there is no water proof, gauntlet glove available. These gloves are still available with their useless membrane but they did change the word in the general description from waterproof to water resistant. Thanks revzilla for stepping up, but I still feel cold and wet and so might you if you buy and rely on these gloves.

Not Gerbing Quality... Avoid
I commute all year long & anything under 40° requires a heated glove, so I needed these gloves to work. Last winter I bought a Rukka Armas and, while the jacket’s great, it's hard to find heated gloves that fit it. Of the gloves I tried, either the gauntlets were too big to sit inside the sleeves, or too small to slip over. So I was thrilled when these gloves hit the market. The gauntlet on these gloves is perfect... if only I could get a pair that passes something resembling quality control. I tried several pairs from different vendors before I finally received a pair that had decent enough stitching that I could get all my fingers in the gloves. While they worked, they were great. Easy to get on and off w/ my Rukka leaving me toasty warm on my daily commute... until 3 weeks later, when the right glove stopped working. So, I completed yet another exchange and, of course, the stitching on the replacement set was a mess as well. I couldn't even get my right hand ring finger in the glove. I don't know what's going on with Gyde's quality control, but these are NOT the Gerbing products I’m used to seeing. My advice... avoid the headache, and the return shipping fees, and shop another product.

To Small
My 1st review ever. I put the blame more on myself then anyone else for my dissatisfaction with this product. I ordered the 1st pair (medium) according to the the size chart (9 inch). They where to small, so I returned them. Revzilla was very prompt and helpful. They then sent me a pair labeled Large.This is where I messed up. I assumed that they would fit (after all, I measured out to the end side of Medium). In my excitement to be wearing my 1st ever heated gloves(birthday present), I wired up the harness before really trying the gloves on. I know that wasn't a bright move on my part. They feel the same as the mediums. The tag may shows size Large but they fit just like the Mediums. So it feels like I threw my money away (to small to wear). I called about this and was referred to the manufacturer for resolution. I doubt that will get me anywhere. I guess the moral of the story, Don't assume anything. I am more upset with myself then anyone else.

300 miles with a Gyde, toasty warm!
Rode 300 miles in weather that ranged mostly in the teens to high 20's (ambient temp), I have not had any rain exposure in these as of yet but my initial impression is very positive. I previously owned Mobile warming as my first heated motorcycle glove. Riding at 70 mph in these temps, you would notice any inadequacy in the heating department very quickly.

In these conditions I mentioned, I would say it is fair to classify as extreme cold weather, they did excellent! I had 0 discomfort during the ride due to the cold. I felt that both the top and bottom of the glove had very good and even heat coverage, especially the thumbs.

I did have discomfort around the finger joints, that is due to the stiffness of the glove and it's insulation pressing down on my joints.
The mobile warming gloves had a similar issue for a long time until I broke them in after a few thousand miles.

The kit comes with some nice connection options, long splitter cord (could have used a shorty splitter, I had to buy one).
I used Nikwax leather treatment stuff that was recommended by a local bike shop to make sure the leather stays resistant to water.

If it is not bitterly cold out you may want to keep the glove on a separate circuit from your other liner(s) to prevent any discomfort.

The only negative I can think of is that i'm not entirely sold on it's impact resistance and ability to limit the injury to the rider, I still think the Rukka gloves I have probably had the most well built impact zones on any glove i've ever owned, they just don't have any cold weather ability.

Strange Sizing
I brought a pair of their Hero Gloves, and I love it. So I decided to purchase a pair of the Vanguard, for the purpose of not having to tuck it into the jacket.

The Hero fits me perfectly, I have normal size fingers, but the Vanguard finger is 3/8 inch shorter than the Hero gloves of the same size. Very strange, why would a manufacturer do that. Either way since I took it out of box, its too late to return it, $200 down the drain.

Bought these for my husband
We did a ride around Lake Superior last fall and froze. So, for his birthday, I bought by husband a pair of heated gloves to go along with his new heated coat. We have had an unseasonably warm winter (for Michigan) and he has ridden a bit. But he says that the gloves were warm enough even without plugging them in. He can't imagine how cold it would have to be to need to plug them in.

He hasn't worn them in the wet yet, so we are not sure how much moisture they can handle, but they are not advertised as water-proof. I am just hoping they are at least water-resistant enough to deal with some wet riding when we go on our long trips.

Snug and Warm
I've only used them once so far, but wanted to put up a review while they are on sale for those who are interested.

I tried on these gloves at my local dealer to check sizing. However, they would not match Revzilla's sale price so I purchased here. I would recommend trying a pair on before you purchase if possible.

I wear medium mountain biking Fox Gloves and Medium Underarmour Gloves. I purchased these gloves in medium and the fit is good for me. The fingers seem a little long and the gloves fit a little tight. I assume they are made to fit snug because they are heated and heated gear should be snug. They are definitely more bulky than a summer glove, but you should expect that. Not sure why folks are surprised a winter glove is bulky. I have no problems riding with them or performing riding functions such as braking, turn signals, etc. Will probably be hard to use phones or little things like that.

I think they feel like quality gloves inside and outside. The leather feels very nice and soft. So initial impression is they are very well made. Lets hope they last.

I rode in 40 degrees at night for about an hour through town and at highway speeds. At 40 degrees in town I did not need the heat. I think if I stayed on the highway for any period of time I would have wanted the heat on a little. When I turned on the heat it felt like I stuck my hands in an oven. The heat felt very nice and even throughout the glove. My first time with heated gloves and its a wonderful feeling! The whole glove is heated, not just the top.

I have the Gerbing Jacket liner and the wireless controller. The gloves did not turn on initially with the wireless controller. I had to turn the controller off then turn it back on before I started feeling heat. I assume the wireless controller needed a cycle to connect. Maybe that wont happen next time, but not a big deal either way.

I can't comment on durability, or rain protection. At $119, I highly recommend these gloves. I will probably wear these gloves for other reasons as well, not just riding. They are very comfortable to me and warm even without heat.

Toasty
These gloves appear to be well made; warm w/o using the electric heat feature. A bit on the bulky side, but that's what I expect in a winter riding glove. The are probably the "gold standard" in this class of riding glove, but they ain't cheap. I'm pleased...at least down to 30F degrees, which is the coldest day of the season this year.

I use them with the Gerbings dual controller. I have not used the heat on a wide-open setting yet.
