Cold Weather Motorcycle Gear: Gerbing’s T5 Heated Gloves

Gerbing Microwire T5 Heated GloveThe UPS Fairy came to my office today and dropped off a pair of Gerbing’s Microwire T5 heated gloves. These were a belated Christmas present courtesy of my mom & pop. Isn’t it just like a mom to always want to make sure that you’re dressed warmly enough?

Preliminary Findings

  • They don’t feel super bulky, which is what I hate about winter riding gloves. When my hands become desensitized by a glove it drives me nuts.
  • The wrist can be tightened with a velcro strap, to help secure fit and keep out drafts. The gauntlet has a pull string for cinching closed over your jacket sleeve.
  • The quality of the materials is very nice. With leather palms, fingers and knuckles the gloves appear to be well made. It is what you would expect from Gerbing.
  • The connection with the Gerbing liner that I already have appears to be as easy as pie. The sleeve of the liner has a zipper-enclosed jack connector on the forearm that plugs into the glove. No crazy spaghetti wiring. Score!

Gerbing Microwire T5 Heated Gloves

I’m looking forward to giving them a test ride this weekend. So far, Sunday is looking like it is going to be sunny and in the 30’s. Between the heated gloves and my handlebar muffs, I should have the toastiest digits in all the land!

Do you have any experience with these gloves? Let’s hear about it!

    I have the regular heated gloves and they are bulky…definite disconnect from the motorcycle. I’ll be awaiting an on-bike review on the Microwire offering. Enjoy them. 🙂
