 Gerbing's T5 Heated Gloves
Gerbing's T5 Heated Gloves
Gerbing's T5 Heated Gloves The Gerbing's T5 Leather Gloves are exceptionally light, strong and pliable gloves. The gloves are constructed of a light supple leather to help reduce bulk but designed to keep your hands and fingers toasty warm. The T5's heat the entire length of each finger and thumb as well as the back of the hands. To keep the draft out and heat in, there is an adjustable wrist strap to seal the cuff. Other details include a non slip grip material on the palm, protective padding on the knuckles, reinforced palms, interior waterproofing and Thermolite insulation. Whether it is long distance riding where comfort and warmth are essential or intercity high traffic commuting where safety is a must, the Gerbing's T5 Gloves deliver exceptional performance.

These gloves work well as part of Gerbing's excellent system. They fit well, although it's important to use the sizing guide.
I had to split the difference on the "protection and durability" segment. I think these gloves are likely to last a long time, the quality of finish and materials are top-notch; but an almost necessary trade-off in a glove of this type is a loss of crash protection. If you hit the pavement in these gloves, you're likely to lose some skin. With everything else going on inside, an armored glove would probably lack the dexterity that in itself is a safety factor.
That said, they WORK well, they are well finished, and the price is reasonable for such a well-made product.
Yes, I recommend this product.
