Bought these because alpinestar gloves fit my hands the best. I wanted a heated glove so I said I'll try it out.
The elastic cuff is a pain to get over my aerostitch suit. The ring finger on my left had was sewn crooked and it is kinda bothersome. See picture.
The inside of the gloves are lined with some sort of strange fabric that is not very soft.
They fit great other than the twisted finger. The protection is good.
They are HOT in 50 degree weather with no heat and when in the 30's your palms will freeze if you do not have heated grips. And they don't get that hot, my heatroller is always on high when I need the heat. I don't understand why they don't heat the palms on any gloves. Who thinks let's make a heated glove and just heat the fingers? As if handle bars are made out of some mystery metal that doesn't get cold. I ride a 01 RT so your hands do not get any wind blast because of the placement of the mirrors, good job BMW, now only if I didn't have to take my eyes of the road to look in my mirrors, goood job BMW.
They probably don't heat the plams to keep the wires from breaking. Also the thumbs seem to not get enough heat. I did not get them wet so can't say anything about that.
My biggest complaint is that they are supposed to be pre curved. Well I guess they are but not enough. I commute 150 miles a day round trip. When you have to constantly hold your hands shut because the glove is forcing them open it gets tiresome.
I was going to return them but I was on vacation and forgot about how long I had them and missed my 30 day window. I might just suffer with them and maybe they will break in. Or sell them. Anyone need a pair of OK heated gloves?
I wish revzilla would let me return them at least for a pair with a straight finger. My fault I missed the return by 10 days.
Maybe I should call and ask. No fault of revilla's I have ordered many products from them and still will. They do have the best return policy and the guys on the phone are good people when you have a question.
No, I do not recommend this product.
