Heated Gloves

I have a BMW R1150RT and BMW R1100S. Purchased a Gebring jacket liner with collar, dual controller, and picked up some used Gebring G3 gloves from a friend. Twenty-five degrees here in Houston last night and went for an hour ride to test equipment.

Jacket- toasty warm, can't run on high unless on highway or you will be well done. Great buy.
Gloves- not toasty at all but better than non-heat. Called Gebring and rep said the jackets run much, much warmer than gloves. Strangely enough, rep said their gloves do OK in cold weather but start dropping off significantly in 20s and colder weather. Ask her why and the answer was not as much surface and can't put sufficient wiring in the glove because of size to make toasty.

I found this hard to believe.

Question- What is your opinion of Gebring heated gloves or their competitor products? Warmth can be a matter of opinion, but would anybody out there with heated gloves say they can get too hot.

Appreciate your comments.

Nathan

You just might have to tough it up and ride with an electric jacket and electric gloves even if they are not making your fingers toasty in 25F for all three days a year this happens in Houston. Life sucks ...
