Firstgear Heated Gloves There's nothing worse than trying to operate your bike with cold, numb fingers. Bulky, unheated gloves make things even tougher by reducing feel, reaction time and complicating operation of the controls. Firstgear's Warm and Safe heated gloves for men and women feature heating throughout the entire glove, while maintaining the thinness of a summer glove. The gloves plug directly into the jacket liner, or an optional separate wire harness, allowing riders to adjust the temperature of the gloves independently of the jacket with a Dual Heat-troller. Features DC-heated, produces 15 watts of heat at 12.8 Volts (each glove) and should be used with a Firstgear Heat-Troller for optimum safety Y-Harness is required for use with Firstgear Heat-troller (unless you have a Firstgear heated liner, then this is unnecessary) Grade-A, top-grain, drum-dyed cowhide construction Porelle breathable, waterproof membrane Thinsulate layer Pre-curved fingers and finger-mounted, rubber faceshield wiper Elastic wrist and adjustable hook-and-loop gauntlet closure Reinforced protection in palm Reflective piping on top Make sure to check out our Firstgear Heated Gear Buyers Guide

Purchased these gloves about a year and a half ago and can easily say that they are hands down, the favorite piece of riding apparel I've purchased. No more stiff, freezing-cold hands for me, even on mornings where the temperature has been in single digits! And now that I've added a heated jacket liner, well, let's just say that I'm one warm, happy rider, as long as there isn't fog or wet, freezing roads. Totally changed late fall and winter, as well as early spring riding for me. Nice snug fit with a sufficient built-in curve. Easy to connect cables, particularly with the heated jacket liner's power cables. One great, well thought out package. Might even consider the pant liner.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Firstgear Heated Jacket Liner Firstgear's no one left behind policy ensures that riders of any model motorcycle can take advantage of the warming effects of heated apparel by choosing between either the 65- or 90-watt versions. Good for low-amperage bikes or passengers not requiring as much heat as the rider, the 65-watt units minimizes the draw on the bike's charging system. Efficient warming is dependent upon close proximity to the body. Firstgear reduced the amount of sizes while ensuring a good fit by incorporating stretch panels into the liner's design. The long-sleeve liner cocoons its wearer in warmth by incorporating heating elements across the upper and lower back, down the sleeves, around the neck and, to combat the effects of windchill, the liner concentrates heat in the front of the jacket.

The Good: Toasty warm with temps hovering around 24 F outside.
The Bad: 1. Sizes run smaller than FirstGear's Jackets, ie 2XL liner is much smaller than a 2XL jacket 2XL.
2. Liner doesn't button in place into the jacket so I constantly have to replace liner sleeves into the jacket sleeves, unlike the original insulated, non-heated jacket liner which was held in position with snap/buttons. Little thing I realize, but irritating when paying big bucks for a heated liner.
All in all though I'm glad to be warm on those cold wintery mornings. Listen up FirstGear and you might get more customers with repeat business.
Yes, I recommend this product.
