What a difference !

Quite amazing to ride in freezing temps with your hands so warm they're near to sweating. This with the Heat Troller dial about 3/4 of the way around. I swear these gloves will make your entire body feel warmer. I need to say these seem to run a bit small. I went a size larger than normal and they fit just great.

But there is a warning to purchasing these. If you allow the sales agent to convince you that with the duel Troller you won't need the Y harness, it's gonna take another very long week before you can ride with your new gloves because without that Y harness there's no way you can make the connection.

The harness runs from the Troller up the back of your jacket and down each sleeve to the gloves. And remember, if you have the Troller on the right side of your belt, the longer Y cable (6 inches longer) goes down the LEFT sleeve. Otherwise every time you disconnect you'll go crazy reaching up your sleeve trying to locate the connection.

Best way to install the Y harness is to remove the lining from your jacket and lay the jacket so it is open and flat. Then starting at the waist run the cables up the center and down each sleeve, zip the lining back in place, put the jacket on, pause a second or two in front of the mirror to admire how fantastic you look, and when you get to your bike you're ready to plug in and roll out.

And when you're out on that highway, look around and realize: "You may see OLD riders, and you may see BOLD riders, but you never see OLD, BOLD riders."

At age 73 I know whereof I speak.

A: No. The Firstgear Heated Rider Gloves come as pictured to attached to the electrical point in a jacket. If you are not using a heated jacket, you will have to purchase a controller and wiring kit.

A: On the Heated Rider Gloves the heat is on the back of the hand, fingers, and thumb. The Heated Gloves Liners are the ones that have heat surrounding the fingers, as if you were to trace your hand on a piece of paper.

Do I have to buy a control unit in order to use these gloves? Does it not just connect directly to the battery?

A: Yes, you will have to purchase the Firstgear Dual Heat-Troller which is sold separately.

A: You can get a Single Heat-Troller too, just means the control nob heats each glove the same heat level. If your only going to have the gloves (and not a jacket heat liner) you will need a DC Coax Plug Y-Harness as well, its just a Y shaped cable with 3 male ends. That runs down both arms to each glove, then plugs into the Heat-Troller. Its a relatively cheap cable.
