if you ride in cold weather my suggestion would be:
go ahead, bite the bullet and buy heated gloves and a heated jacket liner (either HD or Gerbings). Go ahead and spring for the dual thermostat control too. (one control for the jacket, one for the gloves).
It's not a cheap investment but believe me, if you ride in cold weather you'll be glad you spent the cash!
PS: I believe Gerbings makes the HD stuff so I say go with which ever you can get a better deal on.
It has been in the 30's every morning this week and the only thing that gets cold are my fingers. After 30+ years of riding, I think I have spent hundreds of dollars on gloves, $20 to $30 at a time. I just have a hard time bringing myself to plunk down $100+ for a single pair. Maybe this year.
BTW, I have tried dozens and once the temp goes below 40, the fingers hurt after about 10 miles. I have a 24 mile commute.
