These are by far the cheapest heated glove liners I was able to find, however, they do not seem cheap in the slightest. I bought these to fit in a pair of Alpinestars C2 windstopper gloves (which are terrible). Before using these my hands would go completely numb at anything below 40 degrees with the Alpinestar gloves. Since receiving these liners I have yet to find a day to cold to go riding. These gloves get seriously hot!! As other reviewers noted you really can't turn these up beyond 3 because they are too hot. Nevertheless, I went riding in 19 degree weather and had no complaints about the temp of my hands. The fit of the gloves is good they are reasonably thin and I have had no problem fitting them under other gloves with little loss of dexterity.
I did have a minor problem with the initial pair I received from revzilla where there was a hot spot in one glove. I called Powerlet and within seconds they apologized profusely and sent out a new pair that arrived two days later. I really appreciated that I didn't have to jump through any ridiculous hoops like sending in the old pair first to get the new ones. I take note of quality customer service like this and I know if I ever need any other heated gear it will be from Powerlet
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this jacket for winter commuting. I have been riding with it every day in 30 degree weather. This jacket has done an excellent job at keeping me warm. I have never once been cold in the areas protected by the jacket, even when the rest of me is a giant icicle. My only minor quibbles are that the collar is a bit high and can rub your neck and chin. Also the zipper on the dry star membrane constantly catches on the excess material around it.
Sizing wise, I am 6 feet 210 pounds and wear a size 44 suit. I got the XL. The chest is just right and the abdomen area is a bit loose , however, the arms are very tight in the bicep area.
We shall see how this jacket is when the weather begins to heat up.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is NOT a winter glove. They do NOT stop the wind. This is not really even a cold weather glove. I bought these for my 10 mile commute. I have worn them in 55 degree weather and 30 degree weather. In 55 degree weather my hands were cold but not horribly so. In 30 degree weather with an additional liner stuffed in the glove I lost all feeling in my fingers within 2 minutes. By the end of my commute I was concerned about frostbite. Aside from these issues there is no real crash protection and thus no real advantage over just buying a ski glove.
No, I do not recommend this product.
