Description

The heat is strategically placed in the back of the hand and in the palm side of these insulated gloves to warm the area of the hands that suffer the most from the cold. Engineered to heat the entire length of each finger — including the thumb — to prevent numb, chilled hands.

The glove construction consists of durable abrasion resistant nylon shell and a digital leather palm with extra padding making for a performance based fit and feel. The articulated, pre-curved fit, adjustable wrist enclosure and zip-cinch cuff help make it the best fitting winter glove you will ever wear.

Operated by powerful, rechargeable 7V lithium battery with microprocessor controlled technology INCLUDED
Digital leather palm for better grip and feel
Hipora™ waterproof, breathable membrane to keep your hands dry
Thinsulate™ insulation for added warmth and dexterity
Adjustable wrist enclosure and zip-cinch cuff
Articulated, pre-curved fit
Soft tricot fleece lining
Available in black

These heated gloves will allow you to forget about the cold and let you focus more on enjoying your time outdoors. The gloves not only keep you warm but are also constructed with a waterproof/breathable liner to keep you dry.

Lightweight, powerful rechargeable lithium batteries are included that are conveniently stored on zipped pockets on the cuff of the gloves. A transparent window gives you access to the power level settings button allowing you to select your own personal level of thermal comfort.

The highest level will provide an intense heat output for a minimum of two hours. After your hands warm up, turn down the power setting and enjoy the soothing warmth all day.

Gloves are supplied with two 7V, 2.2Ah rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and a dual charger. Simply connect the charger to any regular 110 – 230V wall outlet to charge the batteries. A green indicator light will let you know when the batteries are fully charged which is typically between 3-5 hours depending on how discharged the batteries were to begin with.

Connection

Connecting Your Heated Clothing

Gerbing Battery Harness

(Will fit on most 12v vehicle batteries):

  1. Start by laying battery harness on table.
  2. Choose the correct fuse from the ones supplied relevant to the heated clothing product selected. ALWAYS Use the lowest rated fuse that is rated ABOVE your total calculated current
    draw. (please refer to fuse choice instructions/table supplied with battery harness
  3. Connect the battery harness to your vehicles battery. The red lead goes to positive terminal and the black lead goes to the negative terminal, then route the harness through frame (with the rubber cover fitted on the coax plug to prevent grounding). As all Gerbing jacket connections are on left hand side, the coax plug ideally needs to be routed to the left side of the vehicle. Zip tie the loose cable in place to prevent it catching on any moving parts.
  4. You can now connect your Gerbing kit directly into the battery harness. Always plug in your kit when the vehicle is running.
  5. Always replace the protective cap on the battery harness when not in use to prevent water ingress

In order to accommodate your individual preference for heating comfort, Gerbing strongly recommends using our temperature controllers with any heated clothing purchase.

Optional BMW/HELLA plug.

Gerbing can also plug into any 12v outlet on your bike, ATV, etc. using the BMW/Hella accessory plug. If your vehicle has a CanBus system installed, we recommend using a battery harness to bypass the CanBus system.

  1. Decide which size your 12v outlet is. Most are either Hella sockets or the standard Cigarette lighter socket.
  2. For cigarette type sockets leave the red cap on.
  3. For Hella type sockets (BMW, Triumph, Ducati etc) turn the red cap 45º and pull off. The plug will now fit.
  4. Make sure you have the correct fuse fitted for the Gerbing kit you are using.
  5. Making sure your vehicle is running, first connect your heated clothing into the adapter and then plug into the socket.

Care

Taking Care of Your Gerbing Product

Despite the Lifetime Warranty on Heating Elements, the majority of warranty claims arise due to lack of care. Gerbing kit is well made and robust, treated well it will keep you warm and safe for many years. Some customers are still using kit that is over 18yrs old.

  1. Always keep the rubber cap on the battery harness when not in use.
    Even when your Gerbing kit is not plugged in (for instance during the summer months) there is a tiny charge going through the plug and if its damp, over a period of time the plug will corrode.
  2.  Ensure you remove the fuse in the summer time to avoid corroding of the plug.
  3. All the plugs should be treated with a damp inhibitor such as WD40 or ACF.
  4. Gloves should be treated with a leather conditioner/waterproofer such as Nikwax. Our gloves use a waterproof Hipora liner however, this liner is underneath the outer skin of the glove which will still soak up water if not protected.
  5. Jackets, trousers and socks can all be washed by hand using a mild detergent. Hang on a line to dry naturally - do not tumble dry.
  6. All our kit can be rolled tightly for packing.

Windchill

Understanding Windchill

Our human bodies constantly give off heat, as a result our skin heats the air around it. Consequently, the layer of air surrounding our skin becomes warm and forms something similar to an invisible, heated “air jacket.” However, when wind blows, this warmer air around our skin gets quickly blown away and is replaced by the colder moving air of the wind. The faster the wind blows, the less of a chance we get to heat the air in contact with our skin - therefore the colder we feel ! During summer months the use of riding kit makes this phenomenon all but redundant.

However during the winter months even the best clothing will struggle to maintain this envelope of warm air around you. Gerbing Heated Clothing artificially introduces a new and warmer air jacket around your skin that is constantly replaced even at high speeds when the wind chill is increased, making your journey more comfortable and arguably safer.

To make this clearer, when riding a motorcycle at 70mph with an outside temperature of 0ºC, the wind chill factor will result in a temperature equivalent to -11ºC!

Reaction times at this temperature are considerably slower this, in turn, could make all the difference in an emergency situation.

Durability of batteries

100% = 10 hours
75% = 5 hours
50% = 3 hours
25% = 2 hours

Actual run time may vary depending on ambient temperature. Battery capacity decreases in very cold weather, especially if the
battery is not insulated, and is left exposed to the elements. At less than -5°C a battery may only produce 80% of its capacity.
