- Heats both your palms and the backs of your hand
- Stylish; made from soft fabric and durable leather
- Rugged, comfortable, and very versatile
Leather palm absorbs moisture, and the battery takes quite a long time to charge.
Design: These are designed as ski gloves, with a pre-curved design compatible with gripping ski poles. However, they can be used for other work and tasks around the house, or you can simply wear them around town. They're rugged, with a durable outer shell of fabric, leather palms, and surprisingly soft tricot insulation that will keep water and wind out.
For those who plan to use them while skiing, the elastic cords and nylon wrist straps provide DOUBLE protection against snow, ice, and water. The insulation is very effective, even when the heating is switched off, so your hands will always be nice and warm. Unfortunately, the leather palms tend to get soggy when absorbing moisture.
Heating: The heating element runs on a 7.4 volt battery, which delivers up to 8 hours of run time on the lowest setting (among the best run time on the market). Sadly, the highest setting will drain the battery in just 2 hours. Thankfully, the battery is compact enough that it won't weigh you down or get in your way, and you can easily access the battery to check its charge or recharge it. Expect a long charge time, though.
You have four heat settings to choose from, according to just how cold your hands get during the winter.
Price: Starting at $127, these are slightly on the pricier side, but very worth it if you need a pair of heated gloves that will last you for years to come.
