I only know about Garbings stuff.
For starters, I already had this 2 piece suit made by Joe Rocket that turned out to be way to hot for summer riding, In fact it found it's perfect for snow plowing on my ATV.

But when it got around freezing, at highway speeds my core would get cold, so I bought the vest first. (looking back sometimes I wish I was not so cheep and I had bought the jacket liner).
But yes what they say about heating your core heats your blood, then your extremity's stay warm.

As it got colder last year, I bought the gloves. They come with a harness that you run down your sleeves when you put your riding jacket on, then it goes down to your belt area and plugs into a place on the vest. then the vest has a place that you plug in a cable between your bike and vest.

Last year I was running the vest without a temp controller. I could be running down the road at 55mph, 32 deg out, and it felt like I was sitting on a beach in the middle of the summer with the sun on my back, but as it would warm up, I found myself way to hot, unplugging the vest type hot.

This year I bought a heat controller. I went with the dual zone (2 thermostat) controller. Now I plug the vest into the controller A and gloves into controller B. I have not used it on the gloves yet, but it worked nice on the vest.

I think the vest draws like 55 watts (same as a headlight) and the gloves are like 27 watts (If I recall).

I have not felt the need to buy any other heated parts, my Joe Rocket pants keep my legs warm, and if it's cold enough I just switch to good hunting boots.

Thanks TowPro. I'm going to look at the gloves. I'm not sure I can swing the vest and the controller too right now.

I go with a heated glove liner and the geartector mitts

http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...ATV-Mitts.aspx

If you have heated grips you won't need any heated gloves..
I ride all winter with my summer vented riding gloves, with my heated grips on low (most of the tyme) and the geartector mits...


The mitts serve to block the wind (wich is where the cold comes from) and it holds the heat in..

If you don't have the heated grips the glove liners give you the wamth with out the bulk of the heated gloves..

Thats just what werks for me.
I got the heated glove and they are way to bulky and my fingertips would still get cold on days in the teens..

here is your shoping list: (I used gerbings, But the warm and safe are almost identical and they are cheeper)

here are the Geartectors ($27.99)
http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...ATV-Mitts.aspx
here are the glove linerz ($53.99)
http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...chAutoComplete
If you only planing on running the glove liners (and not planing to add any other heated gear later) ($89.99)
http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...t-Troller.aspx
If you think you may add another piece of heated gear in the future (jacket,Pant or sox)
http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...t-Troller.aspx ($125.99)

but the bad part is nothing is easy, what werx for one of us won't werk for the other...
So you prolly gonna have to do it the way we did..\
buy all the shit that don't werk and keep trynig till you fing what werks for you...

Thanks beantop. I'll look locally for the bar end mitts. I have the Cycra handguards so I want to see if they'll still fit, plus $7 shipping on something that weighs less then a pound? Gouging plain and simple. I'm sure Cycle Gear can get them or one of the local bike dealers. Parts Unlimited has them in their catalog so I can get them from Cycle Gear with no shipping.

you may want to check some ATV/snowmobile shops since threre designed primarily fo ATV's....

I think they're listed on Bass Pro's web site, but I could never find them in any local (enola area) stores..

Some things to consider about bar muffs are the Koplin style that Beantops using is they are about half the cost of the Orig Hippo Hands that I have. The Hippo Hands might be worth the extra cost only if you plan on taking them on and off. They are designed to do so. They are slitted to slide over the mirror posts, and are designed to stow flat in a top box or strapped to the seat. In my experience this ended up not being that important. If there is a morning cold enough to need them it has never been warm enough on that same trip that I felt the need to take them off. I've never owned the Koplins, but by looking at them, they seem better constructed. Bean top can elaborate on whether the are easy to come on and off.

I also install my Hippo Hands in more temperate weather if I know I'll be riding long distances in rain. Even though my clutch hand comes in and out to squeegee my visor, with the bar muffs on and the heated grips on it works to keep my hands warm and dry.
