Maybe my expectations were too high. Overall it does its intended job, with a few nits. First, is fit. My measurements put me in the middle of SM/MD (I'm 5'10, 150lbs, long arms). Gerbings adviced me to go with MD. It ends up being kind of baggy in places, and where it is baggy, the heat distribution is felt significantly weaker than where it's tight. Also, the arms seem to skimp on heating elements. To have warm arms my torso burns, so I settle for a warm torso and not freezing arms. Lastly, the collar, which I thought would be the best thing about the jacket, is practically useless. It feels too thick, and when I zip up my jacket over the collar the bulk is unbearable. So I have to pick which one to have up. Since the jacket collar is much bigger, no heat reaches my neck, so I can't have it be the one to be zipped up. So I end up rolling the Gerbing collar down and zip up my regular Olympia jacket and use the old neck gaiter system.
But overall I'm glad I got it, it's made winter riding much more pleasurable.
Yes, I recommend this product.

It's tough buying gloves without trying them on first. There are so many variances to the fit, that what works for one won't for another. This was the case for me with these gloves. The size is measured by the circumference of the palm, and knowing that my fingers are usually cramped inside gloves, I bought one size larger. Unfortunately, the fingers are still cramped, but the palm is very loose. These would better fit someone with thick hands and shorter fingers. As for function, the cramped fit makes it hard to reach the brakes and clutch without rotating my entire hand forward. Just an odd fit. On the warmth, they're good, but not great. I can feel the cold at 50 degrees on my naked bike. By 45 degrees my fingers are cold. On my faired bike they're warm to 45 degrees, but by 40 my fingers are cold (maybe because they're pressed up against the top).
Pros Great Value
Cons Cramped
Yes, I recommend this product.
