These gloves keep me warm even without pluggin it in. And in minus degrees, with these plugged in provide good protection.

This FirstGear Heated Glove requires a heat troller (sold separately) to use this item without the jacket liner. Gloves will attach to the jacket liner with no additional troller required as long as you do not wish to set the jacket liner and gloves at different temperatures. FirstGear DC Coax Plug Y-Harness is required for connecting heated gloves to a Heat-Troller™ without a heated jacket liner. Trollers can be mounted or not to the bike depending on troller purchased. A remote for heat control is also available in heat troller packs. BMW riders will most likely have to purchase a converter for power. The power for these items comes directly from the bike which you must install. If preferred, you can purchase a portable battery pack with optional a/c adapter (case optional as well). Splitters may be purchased to connect an additional rider to the power source from the bike.
Please measure the circumference of your hand starting at the top side of the base of your thumb (see image chart) using a cloth tape measure and choose your size from the chart below.Please note all measurements are in inches.

So I just wore the pants , with the jacket liner and the carbon gloves for the first time ! All heated up in about 5 min ! It does keep you nice and warm , think of it like a heating pad around your chest , legs and hands . About 30min into the ride though I noticed that my heat was gone and the lights on the control was out . I stopped and had to take a look at the battery and found that the 15a fuse on the control had melted :-/ I will be riding tomorrow for a couple hours and hope this doesn't happen again ... It does have me concerned and that is why I say 4 stars ..
Firstgear offers four different styles of heated gloves; the Heated Carbon Glove, the Heated Rider Glove, the Women's Passenger Glove, and the Heated Glove Liner. In this video we are taking a look at the Heated Carbon Glove. This is First Gear's top of the line heated glove and is available in men's sizes sm-2xl. . They are constructed from top grain cowhide leather and feature an Agrotex breathable, waterproof membrane. The liner is made of Thinsulate and the fingers are precurved making these true motorcycling gloves. The top of the hand is protected by these carbon fiber knuckle protectors and ulna puck. Visibility is increased by a strip of reflective piping and reflective thread that is woven into the stretch panels and pads on the fingers. The wrist features a Velcro strap for adjustability and the palm has reinforced high wear areas. The thumb is equipped with a face shield wiper and the qauntlet can be adjusted with this Velcro strap.
Connecting your First Gear Heated items is easy, but there are numerous different types of controller options available. To see all of the different Heat-Troller options, check out our video showing many of the ways to set up and control your new Firstgear heated gear.
Now that you have selected the type of Heat-Troller that best suits your needs, you can go ahead and connect your gloves. If you are using a pair of gloves or glove liners in conjunction with the heated jacket, simply plug the female end of the glove lead into the male lead coming out of the sleeve. If you are using a pair of gloves by themselves, you will need to purchase a DC Coax Plug Y-Harness, and the Heat-Troller of your choice, which will come with the DC Coax Battery Harness. Hold the split ends of the y-harness in your hands when you put your jacket on and you'll be wired up. Plug the gloves into the y-harness and then the y-harness into the Firstgear Heat-Troller. Once you have started your motorcycle, you can turn on the Heat-Troller and adjust the setting to your liking.
