Firstgear Heated Gloves

There's nothing worse than trying to operate your bike with cold, numb fingers. Bulky, unheated gloves make things even tougher by reducing feel, reaction time and complicating operation of the controls. Firstgear's Warm and Safe heated gloves feature heating throughout the entire glove, while maintaining the thinness of a summer glove. The gloves plug directly into the jacket liner, or an optional separate wire harness, allowing riders to adjust the temperature of the gloves independently of the jacket with a Dual Heat-troller.


  • DC-heated, produces 15 watts of heat at 12.8 Volts (each glove) and should be used with a Firstgear Heat-Troller for optimum safety
  • Y-Harness is required for use with Firstgear Heat-troller (unless you have a Firstgear heated jacket liner, then this is unnecessary)
  • Grade-A, top-grain, drum-dyed cowhide construction
  • Porelle breathable, waterproof membrane
  • Thinsulate layer
  • Pre-curved fingers and finger-mounted, rubber faceshield wiper
  • Elastic wrist and adjustable hook-and-loop gauntlet closure
  • Reinforced protection in palm
  • Reflective piping on top

Note: Palm is not heated.

definitely worth the money
I bought these gloves for my trip across the US. I encountered almost every type of weather: rain, snow, thunderstorms, freezing temperatures.
If there is a chance of you riding in the rain I would highly recommend to water-proof them. Unfortunately I didn't do it and 10min into the rain storm ( @ about 40 degrees) they were soaking wet and weighed about a pound each.
When I tried them on to find the right size I made the mistake of buying them too big. Yes, there fit about the same as my regular gloves did, however, the only way for your hands to stay warm is if the skin is in direct contact with the glove. I would recommend buying them on the tight side.
The coldest temperatures I endured with these gloves was around 20 degrees (without the wind-chill factor) and my hands stayed pretty warm.
Definitely worth the money, however water-proof them if there's a chance of rain and it's better to buy them too small than too big.

Fantastic when they work
I use these when I commute in late fall, and winter.
There is nothing better than having warm hands when you get off your bike. I can ride in much colder temps because as long as my hands are warm I feel warm too.

Cons: I have logged about 300 miles in them so far. I have exchanged one pair and will exchange the 2nd pair this week. I keep having issues with the left glove. It just stops working. The local Cycle Gear Shop told me that they must have a bad batch because I was the 4th or 5th person with a bad left glove.

I am going to upgrade to the ones with the Kevlar knuckles this time and see if that solves the issue once and for all.

PROS: Stay dry, Warm, Not so bulky

CONS: Faulty elect in left glov

BEST USES: Cold and rainy, Below 45 degree day

BIG price for little quality
Don't expect them to be "heated" for long. Gloves work great for 1 or 2 uses and then left glove stops working...on my 3rd set now in only 3 months, just in time for summer!

great gloves, short life-span
These work wonderfully, when they work. First pair went out after about a year, maybe 5-10k miles of use; replaced quickly under warranty. Second pair are about that far in, same problem.

I will be shopping for replacements; I might buy another set, but it is kinda pricey for something I know will only last 1-2 seasons.

Great Gloves!
These gloves are great. They heat the top of your fingers where the grips only heat the palm sides.
