The Gerbing T5’s run on 12V batteries, which is among the highest voltage for heated gloves. However, if you want heated gloves that sustain their warmth throughout hours of riding, these gloves also connect directly to the electrical system of your motorcycle!

Here are the pros and cons according to customer reviews.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Gloves get decently warm for temperatures around 30°F
  • The inner lining provides for plenty of waterproofing
  • It is quick to heat up

Cons

  • Does not get quite as hot as the FirstGear Rider heated gloves

Comparing the prices

Those who are concerned about cost, it is always useful to compare prices between products. Below is a list of the three gloves mentioned in this review. You will find their prices on Amazon.

The Verdict

All three of these heated gloves are popular with motorcyclists. We feel that heat and waterproofing are the most important elements of a heated motorcycle gloves.

So when it comes to these components, the waterproofing on the Gerbing and the FirstGear seem to be very adequate as far as the inner lining goes. When it comes to the heating component, the FirstGear Rider gloves get the hottest. However, the palm side of the Gerbing heat the best.

We love the fact that the Gerbing T5’s can be hooked right into your motorcycle in order to keep the heat for as long as you’re riding. This is great for long distances.
