Going to pull the trigger on heated gloves. Lots of good reviews on the Gerbing G3 ($140) but does anyone have comments on the Gerbing T5 ($170)?
Being new to the US market there may not be many with any first hand knowledge of them. I can say the G3 works great for me. I dislike bulky gloves and the G3's are not bulky.
Right now my complaint is no matter what I buy I will need to wear over-gloves, adding to the bulk.
Why cant anyone make heated-protective-waterproof gloves?
I tried on the G3 and T5 at my local dealer. I went with the G3 because it had less bulk and is less expensive. I've used the G3 several times thus far in temps in the 30s. Great glove! I'd suggest a liner and Controller if you can afford it.
I have an older pair of Gerbing heated gloves that are similar to the G5. They are very warm, but they are bulky. I have since added 'HotGrips' heated grips and only use my Gerbings in extreme weather.
Mike either ones are great and get some rain off overgloves. Great combo.

I bought a pair of Gerbing gloves last year. Can't remember which version, but they look a little different than the current models, so I think they've been updated. They are a little bulky, but not enough to be a problem. You will want a controller, or your hands will cook. I'd recommend the dual controller, as you'll probably end up with a pair of socks or jacket liner as well.
I'll keep my Freedom, Guns and Money, you can keep the "CHANGE"
Check out Warm-n-safe before you pull the trigger!!! I found the G-3's to have too much bulk in the palm. The Warm-n-safes keep the backs of my hands and fingers warm, but allow more feel of the grips with the palm of the glove.

The G3's worked very well for me - 600 mile ride in 27 - 32 degrees F. I also purchased some $10 overgloves and sprayed them with 3M waterproofer. Works great in pouring rain.
