Default Heated Riding Gear, Need Some Advice

Getting older guys and have a bummed up left hand that can't stand the cold any more. I have been looking at heated gloves and jacket liners and the more I look the more confused I get.
I looked at the Harley stuff and the reviews on their stuff are not that great.
I search the web and look at reviews, Gerbing seems to be the best I've found
and carries the best warranty. Powerlet seems good but I think they make the stuff for Harley now with the bad reviews.
Need some good honest opinions.

Check out Warm 'n Safe. Gerbing sold out. The guy who started Gerbing has started back up but not sure the name. Supposed to be back up to quality he left Gerbing with which I read is questionable, least not the same.

Gordon's Heated Gear

https://gordonsheated.com/

Original founder of Gerbing. He got screwed out of the company by a family member. Started the new company a few years ago.

After all my Gerbing stuff failed, I replaced it with Gordon's. I, too, have bad circulation in my hands and they are very sensitive to cold. They made a special set of gloves for me that get warmer than normal at no extra cost.

I have the "original" Gerbing jacket liner and gloves, still working good. If they ever need replacing I'll check out Gordon's.

Look at "Gerbing' or 'Alpenheat" for electric heated underwear, gloves, jackets and pants..
Our motorpolice wears it during autumn and winter, 8 hours per day on the bike patrolling

I have trouble with big bulky gloves, Iíve had heated grips for several years, Iíve never left home without them, after all these years Iím thinking of getting Hippo Hands to put over top of them in extreme weather.
If I was doing the heated grips again Iíd do the heated plugs that goes in the bar instead of the grips, not sure if thatís an option for throttle by wire.
