Well made piece of kit, bulky but much better than numb hands. Great customer service.
Firstly - the customer service was excellent.

The product is of a very high quality construction - its lovely and comfortable, soft, and double stitched.

Now that its cold enough to turn them on, I can say that they have definitely kept my hands warm so far. I haven't needed to go beyond the 2nd setting (of 4) yet - for reference, that's at roughly 6degC ambient + up to 70mph for a 20min commute.

Its a very weird sensation - big thick gloves, and at the right amount of heat it doesn't actually feel hot, but when you can feel it you know its too high. It seems to be a lot more powerful on the back of the hand, though that is probably going to be valuable on longer, colder rides.

Two criticisms; the fingers of the small are still a bit long for me (small is the size of my normal gloves) - its alright and I'm getting used to it but I would advise considering a size smaller than normal to compensate (though I suppose it is to be expected that all manufacturer's sizes will vary). Secondly, at a temperature that suits my hands, my fingertips still get cold - though this may be because they're not right at the end of the fingers touching the heating element.

Overall its definitely a worthy purchase as its certainly easier to operate a motorbike through thick gloves than with totally numb hands. Based on how cold my hands were after an hours ride at 2degC a couple of weeks ago, I can see these gloves being an absolute lifesaver.
