Yes, if you have the original style Gerbings gloves (not the new G3
which are thinner but some say not as warm) they are quite bulky.
They're also sized VERY large... I usually wear XL gloves but the
Gerbings L are large enough and then some. Widders are generally
acknowledged to be slimmer. The gerbings are also a pain if you get
your hands wet and try to put them on or remove them... the liner can
come out a bit and get bunched. They are waterproof, though.
As far as warmth goes I don't know if anything's better than the
original gerbings, but they are not the most comfortable when riding.
After 6-7 hours of riding my fingers start to get sore from having to
hold the grips tighter through all the padding. They're warm, though.
:D I really like them.
I recently tried on some Warm'n'Safe ones with carbon knuckle
protectors... they seemed very comfortable and no more bulky than
medium-weight winter gloves. If my Gerbings ever wear out I'll try
those, I think.
