Winter Glove talk

Thought I would start a new thread on this.
I looked at gerbing and the Rev-it Farenhiet.
The gerbings seemed kinda bulky, not real tight fitting, which I would guess would cause some slippage on gripping?

I also seemd to be between a lg and ext large, lg seemed too tight, extra large seemed too big?

The Rev-its, size large were perfect, snug, etc.

I like electrics, I have a gerbing electric coat, so could wire in easily.
Any other electric gloves out there that would wire into the gerbing coat that may fit better?

thx
larry

Did you try only the 'mens' sizes? I was trying on gerbings gloves and commented about one size being too tight, and next size up being too long. They handed me a pair of 'womens' to try....perfect fit!

As for grippage, there is some different type of leather ( or vinyl or rubber or something else ) in the palm area that does seem to cut down on slipping on the throttle side. When I switch from fall-weight to winter-weight gloves, I have found myself trying to squeeze tighter with the insulated palms, thinking I needed to keep it from slipping. No need to. The only 'slipping' is between the inner liner-insulation-outer layer sandwich, due to compressing the insulation.

A few weeks back, had nearly a week of 32F on ride to work. (35 miles, 50 minutes) Today was 36F. Grip-heater on low, gloves running 10-30% power, hands quite warm.

I think there are two models of Gerbings heated gloves. One of the models is heavier than the other. With the LT heated grips, the lighter weight model has plenty of heat to stay comfortable without the extra bulk of the other model.
