Even without the heat, these gloves are good winter gloves. Once you turn the heat on, they are nearly perfect.
Fit is dead on with the size chart. They are a bit bulky, but not nearly as bad as many heavy unheated gloves I've tried. It is a little hard to pinch and turn the controller knobs, but if you keep the knobs easy to turn, you can just slide your finger along it to alter the heat. Works well. Operating the directionals is also a little clumsy, but again not nearly as bad as some other winter gloves I've used.
The construction is very good. Protection seems to be good (hope I never have to test this) and there is good motion and very comfortable on the handlebars.
The left glove has a long visor wiper that works well. The gloves get damp, but the moisture does not come through. They do take a while to dry out completely. I wonder if I hooked up a small 12v power supply and allowed the heat to help this. But either way, my hands never got cold or wet.

I use my bike as my daily driver 38 miles each way to work. Bought a couple pairs of gloves my first couple seasons and they sucked! Finally came across W&S and those lasted me 7 seasons before weather and abuse finally got to them. Ordered these to replace them and they kept my hands very comfortable all winter.

I'll just echo what everyone else is saying: the gear provided by this company is top notch and the customer service is amazing and quite simply surpassed all my expectations. i too only plan to buy W&S for all my heated gear.
the gloves themselves are great, they're thin enough to give good control and feedback and they do their job. i look forward to using them for years to come.

These are first class gloves. Fit and finish are outstanding. The service provided by WNS is world class. I own only WNS heated gear and won't consider any other brand. With gloves, inner liner and socks I've comfortably ridden many hours and long distances in subfreezing temperatures.

No break in required, I went out and rode in 25-35 degree weather, my hands were comfortable. The gloves fit as advertised, they stay warm in a pretty heavy rain. Now I need to see how they last.
