    I was looking at the Gerbing heated gear and wow, that stuff gets expensive when you add up the gloves, jacket, pants, socks, controllers, 12V wiring kit, etc...But it must be soooo nice to be toasty warm on a cold ride.

    I have a set of Orina 118. I've ridden in the 20s with these gloves and they've done well. I've had them for several years.

    Go to They have everything you will need to stay toasty. 7 Volts are the battery operated devices, 12 Volt for the Aux. hookups.

    I bought a gerbing heated ski jacket, it has the biggest battery and stays toasty for hours. I love it. It isn't a padded bike jacket, but I can use it for everything, football games, hockey games, camping etc....They also have vests which are good for core heating...

    Check that website out, everything in one location and they have a great black friday, one day only sale. Keep your eyes peeled for it.

    I finally broke down and got a pair this year. I have these closeout Gerbings. I didn't bother with the controller. They heat up, then turn off for a second and cycle through like that. I may get a controller eventually, but it seems to work just fine as is.

    Ive ridden for just under and hour or so in 20 degrees F (-6ish C) and my hands were perfectly usable once I got to my destination.

    I would'nt say my hands were sweaty and hot. but i had no issues typing or writing with a pen.

    there is a beefier version available also on closeout. I like both of them because they are not any bulkier than a pair of normal winter style gloves. I can (sometimes)
    even put on my helmet with a double d ring while wearing them. Albeit it's much easier without for sure.
