Heated gloves ?

Any recommendations for heated gloves preferably not bulky, I had the heated grips on the last 790 but thought Iíd try heated gloves this time.

I use the Gerbing G3 which I've had for 3 or 4 years. I think they've been superceded now. These gloves have super soft leather, so are supremely comfortable. Some have their own batteries with only a short number of hours between charges. Mine run directly off the electrical system via a temperature controller clipped to my jacket belt. I've never needed to have it more than 1/3 of full capacity. The real advantage is better bike control with totally warm hands.

Thanks Geoff I have a Gerbing outlet very close to me which I only recently found out so will go check it out.

So I went for a pair of Dane heated gloves just felt a bit less bulky than Gerbing and are gortex.
Bit more expensive but came with the batteries as well although Iíll probably use direct to bike battery

I don't think you'll ever regret choosing heated gloves. It makes cold weather riding so much more pleasurable, not to mention better control of the bike. Nice one!

Just so everyone is aware. Gerbing, Iím fairly certain has changed names to Gordonís Heated Clothing. Made in USA. Www.gordonsheated.com, email is [email protected]. I havenít checked if Gerbing is still available, it probably is for now.

Yes I just clicked on my own link. Gordon Gerbing has passed away and I guess they had to rename the company.

Anyone have any experience with a battery pack heated m/c glove - I am not one for all the wires that need to be connected to make them workable despite the fact I know they work great
