Heated Gloves

I'm going to buy some heated gloves. Anyone have gloves that are really good that they would recommend, likewise, any that I should stay away from? Thanks

I purchased a set from a sponsor here. I thought it was cyclenutz but I don't see my particular pair on the site.

I don't think they are gerbings, mine have some kinda plastic reinforcements along the knuckles.

They are OK quality wise. Price was right. Good thing is they work GREAT with the heated grips.

I don't ride when it snows, but when it's dry, it works well even below 30deg.

My Gerbings are awesome plus they work with my heated jacket liner.

Yes, the liner is a nice addition especially if you get cold easily.
Some people don't need them, but if you are "cold-blooded" it keeps you really warm and snuggly as you rip along on your 163hp crotch rocket.

Yes they look a lot like those but not exactly.

They say powerlet equiped on the tag inside but made in Pakistan. I think they are some ultra generic set of riding gloves.

Gerbings, but

I have the Gerbings new version, can't recall number. I have to admit to not liking them much, because they are such a PITA to put on. The problem is the wires, sliding the wire back under the jacket after extending it to plug the glove in.

As a result, I don't wear them much. I ride most days in Richmond, VA (OK, not like Boston) so ride in 20s quite often. The Gerbings liner is the bomb, and the gloves help, but it really has to be a long, cold ride to make putting them on worth it.

Go Gerbings, They have a system that works. I have the jacket and gloves and have used them at 10* in New York and have been able to enjoy the ride!

Go Gerbings. I use the jacket liner with the gloves and dual Temp. controller. I ended up getting their snow mobile gloves they have good leather palms for abrasion but are Textile everywhere else and waterproof. Only if you don't want leather gloves.
