Been using Gerbings 12v wired into bike for last few years
Very happy with them
They heat front and rear of hand and all along the fingers
Get controller with them as you will not need full heat most of the time in the Irish winter
Mine are usually set at 1or 2 and this is adequate for me (I don't suffer from cold hands) and often do not switch on heat at all in moderate weather
Much better than heated grips as back of hand is warmed
Expensive but very good investment particularly if you are commuting

The alternative would be to get grip warmers, they do the job just as good and you don't have to be wired plugging the gloves in/out everytime.

How often was he using them? Weekend spins or every day commuting?

got RST ones last year, [url]https://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/motorcycle_parts/content_prod/222274/[/url]

had em on last weekend, in fairness they are toasty. 2 settings, the lower one would keep you happy most of time. Mostly a weekend biker so cant say how durable they are.

do the elements go over the finger tips. My thumb and finger tips are freezing up.

Ah Jaysus Lads, what was wrong with sticking your hands on the engine at traffic lights to alleviate the terrible pain in the thumbs ?

Same for the feet.

How thick are the Gerbings? Some gloves can be so padded that its nearly impossible to feel the controls through them.

Cheers,

They do a better job than heated grips, thumbs mostly for me. I have Gerbing 12V no battery. 4 settings and rarely above 2. Great job.:thumbsup2:

I like the idea of the RST ones here [url]https://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/mot...t_prod/222274/[/url] although they are discontinued. The wiring needed with the Gerbings seems . . . fiddly?

Cheers,

My son uses Keis Heated Inner Gloves and find them great. Even down to -2C he said they worked well. Can be plugged into the bike battery.

theres 2 settings, green and red. green takes the bite out of a cold day, red is pretty hot. dont have any numbness or bite i normally have without them.

Downey, speak to Pat Madden. he has heated gloves.

IMHO its hard to beat the Oxford muffs and heated grips combo. you can use a pair of summer gloves and you will be toasty as hell.
