How bulky are the first gear liners? My gloves are already snug and would be curious if they can fit over the liners.
They are surprisingly thin. You can't feel any wires in them. They fit under all my different gloves. Although I can definitely tell that I have liners on when I wear them when I wear them, because they cause the outer glove to fit tighter.

First of all you need to buy quality gear no matter what it is that you're buying. Battery-operated glove liners are going to be disappointing. You're also going to have to buy new gloves whether or not you get heated liners. I have a power let heated jacket liner and glove liners and I wear down into the low teens. Although they do provide a lot of warmth they are useless without appropriate gear being used in conjunction with them. If the gloves that you wear or more of a sport bike style where they are were tight on your hands you were not going to get these glove liners in those gloves. You're going to need to look at a winter or snowmobile style clothes and probably go up one size to accommodate the liners.

I have Sedio heated gloves from cycle gear and they are quite bulky but keep my hands nice a toasty :D

I've worn a pair of North Face liners with my gauntlets, I'm not worried about the fit.

I don't like the idea of hardwiring into the bike. I attempted that with my alarm and it just drained the battery, even without use.

It rarely gets in the twenties here (F), and when it does I'll drive the car. I just want something to augment the gauntlets for the 30s-40s.

An alarm pulls power while the bike is off (using the battery). Heated gear uses power while the bike is on (using the alternator). Very different. The CBR has plenty of extra power to run a set of gloves. I use a heated jacket liner (which uses about 4x as much power as gloves) and it powers it just fine.

The site you linked to doesn't say how many watts the glove liners are, or how long they last on a charge. To generate heat takes a lot of power, I'm skeptical that a tiny battery pack will provide much heat. If you don't want to wire to the bike, I suggest spending your money on warmer (non-heated) gloves.

I get how batteries and alternators work. Based on my history with the motorcycle, I am not comfortable running anything off the battery, or alternator. That's all that matters right now.

We're getting off topic.

The original question still remains, and has nothing to do with my current selection of gear.

Back to the original question:

Has anyone had any experience with these heated glove liners?
