OK, here's my two pennorth. I have used Gerbing heated gloves for some years. They are great but there is a bit of a faff with the wires. I have recently discovered that gloves incorporating Outlast are just as good as heated gloves if you have heated grips. The Outlast puts the heat from the grips all round the glove and, except for VERY cold conditions (below maybe 2 degrees) or very long rides, they are a great alternative to wired gloves. OK, Outlast gloves are pricey but, for me, they are worth it. I have had Rukka and Held Outlast gloves and they are both good.

I'd agree. I've got Halversson's outlast lined gloves and never get too cold, especially if I wear a pair of silk liner gloves as well.

I've found the silk keeps me warmer in the cold & cooler in the warm 👍
If it cant be fixed with a hammer you have an electrical problem
