Gerbing Heated Glove Liners Overview
This pair of Gerbing heated glove liners is one of only two pairs that Gerbing makes and I think the reason they don’t have more in their lineup is because the two they do have are really great, so you just don’t need anymore.
The two most important factors when it comes to heated glove liners for motorcycles are comfort and warmth.
The whole point of them is to keep your hands warm but they need to be low profile, flexible, breathable and well fitted in order to be a total home run.
Since they’re designed to be worn underneath another pair of gloves they don’t put any emphasis on protection because that’s left up to outer glove that you’ll be wearing over top.
This pair of Gerbing liners definitely looks great and I’m confident that the quality will be there too so let’s get into the details of the glove and see how they stack up compared to other top brands like Volt, Venture, FirstGear and Cortech.
I also want to add that even though I’m reviewing these gloves as a motorcycle glove they also work with snowmobiles, ATV’s, boats and even small airplanes. Anything with a 12V battery.
Comfort & Warmth
As I said before, when I judge the comfort of heated motorcycle glove liners I always look at the thickness of the gloves first.
These Gerbing gloves are relatively thin but they aren’t quite as thin as other liners I’ve tried so I’m concerned right away that they won’t be as comfortable as I had hoped.
After putting them on I realized that my eyes weren’t wrong. These gloves are a little thicker than you’re average glove liner.
Don’t get me wrong, they feel really nice on the hands when wearing them on their own but as soon as I pulled on my outer glove over top of them it felt a little bunched up.
There’s a velcro closure at the wrist so you can snug them down tight and although they fit no problem under my gloves I was just a little disappointed with the extra material that was slightly crinkled up underneath.
It’s not horrible and most definitely it’s bearable but I would say that they aren’t as comfy as the FirstGear liners that I recently reviewed.
I will say though that I couldn’t feel the heat wires at all so they must be extremely small. This is great as I’ve tried some gloves where the wiring is bulky and really quite uncomfortable.
The interior of the gloves are lined with a tricot lining that feels soft and fleecy which is really nice. All In all they feel pretty good but not perfect.
The warmth of the gloves is definitely a home run. They warm up really fast and boy do they get hot.
The Microwire system is the most durable and efficient thermo-technology platform ever developed. Products incorporating Microwire technology utilizes patented micro-sized stainless steel fibers intertwined and encased in a proprietary waterproof coating.
Besides all that mumbo jumbo that I pulled off of their website, they heat up nicely. You won’t have cold hands while wearing these.
For comfort I’m giving these gloves a 16/20 and for warmth I’m giving them a 20/20.
I always struggle trying to score glove liners in the water resistance category simply because they aren’t designed to be worn on their own in the rain or snow.
In wet conditions these liners are meant to be worn with a waterproof glove over top which is why they’re made so thin.
With that being said, these liners are water resistant. They can be fully submerged in water and they’ll still work completely fine.
But if you don’t have a waterproof glove over top of them they won’t keep your hands dry.
They’ll repel water in light rain but over time or in heavy rain they’ll just start to absorb water and eventually your hands will get wet.
Since these gloves aren’t designed to be waterproof I don’t feel right about docking them too many points in this category which is why I’m going to give them a 17/20.
I’ve always been a big fan of Gerbing gear because I’ve never had any complaints about the quality.
They have a great reputation and these liners certainly live up to those expectations.
They’re manufactured with durability in mind. The Microwire system is the most durable and efficient thermo-technology platform ever developed
You’ll have no problems with these gloves but if there is some weird freak issue, Gerbing will sort it out for you in a jiffy. They’re very serious about their customer support and they stand by their product 100%.
For this category I’m giving them a 20/20.
Safety also isn’t a big concern when it comes to glove liners for the same reasons as water resistances.
With that being said these gloves have a good wrist strap so they won’t come of in the case of a crash.
I would give them a 17/20 in this category.
I found that these gloves fit very true to size so just order your normal size.
If you’re unsure about what size you should get just have a look at our sizing guide.
I don’t have many negatives things to say about these gloves other than the fact that they could be slightly thinner.
If you’re familiar with my glove reviews you know that I can be a little bit of a stickler when it comes to my opinions.
That’s why you need to take some of my complaints with a grain of salt because I’m searching very hard to find something to criticize otherwise my reviews would all be glowing and you’d never know which ones are better.
Also everybody has different things that they’re concerned about so the fact that these gloves aren’t super thin might not be a big deal to most of you.
In the end I was really impressed with them and I would recommend them in a heart beat.
