Default Gerbing’s Heated Gloves T5 or G3?

not sure on which one to get? The T5 or G3 Gerbing’s Heated Gloves, both look nice but the G3 looks like they'd be easier regarding motorcycle grips and hand fatigue? Correct me if I'm wrong -- thanks

I have the G3's and lovem. Can't say about the T5's, never had any. The G3's are the softiest gloves I've ever had. Good choice

If the Hypora membrane truly makes the gloves waterproof that alone would make the T5 worth the extra money. However, I've owned "waterproof" gloves before that were anything but, and I'm hesitant to believe any such claims. This is the first time I've heard of the T5's.

The T5 is a real heavy weight winter glove. The G3 is a better all around glove and is more like a motorcycle glove. It's also wicked warm, not sure when I'd ever need a warmer glove.

I have the G3's and wish I had bought the T5's. I find that the gauntlet is too small and interfers with my jacket sleeve, too small to fit over and too bulky to put under. I would take your riding jacket to the store and try on each and see what you think. I didn't do this and it was too late by the time I discovered this. I went with the G3's because they looked more like riding gloves, not so bulky, but if the T5's would slide over my sleeves I would be happier. I believe the right word is gauntlet for the opening at the back of the glove?? I hope you know what I am talking about. Maybe with time they will soften up and not try to push the glove off my hand when the jacket sleeve is there. They are warm!

Spot-on. The G3s are good, the T5s are better.

I have the T5 gloves, and while I haven't ridden with them in a downpour - I'll ride in the cold and I'll ride in the rain, but I try to avoid riding when it's cold AND raining - I did ride about 50 miles in light, steady rain on a 40 degree morning, and 50 more after the rain let up. My hands never got wet and were toasty warm the duration.

These are the first heated gloves I've ever had and wish I had bought some years ago. My ride to work is 20 miles, and with them I can ride to work when it is in the low 20s and not have cold hands when I get there.
