Heated Gloves
« on: October 11, 2016, 08:57:54 PM »
I'm splashing out next month on new kit for me (after five and a half years mine is now leaking and also three sizes too big after losing 50lbs), and some heated gloves to keep my poor fingers toasty while commuting in the winter.  :190:

I want armoured gloves, that are waterproof (I can't believe the number of heated gloves that aren't waterproof!!!) and I'd like ones where the heating wires run up each finger and round the thumb for maximum defrosting. Anyone got any recommendations? I notice you can buy heated under gloves, anyone tried these? Any good?

Also any recommendations on new kit appreciated; I commute everyday all year in all weathers except ice. My old kit was Weise, and has lasted pretty well. I'm in the UK.

Thanks!

I've got heated grips instead of gloves. In stop/go traffic my fingers get a bit cold as they are on the levers a fair bit but they work pretty good. I went for grips over gloves as I don't need to plug them in each time and they work with any gloves.

I fitted heated grips last summer and they're pretty good, but like you my fingers still getting cold. :190: I thought about heated gloves, haven't looked into them :034:.
Interesting to see what others say.

Can't help I'm afraid, my bikes covered up in the garage 'till next spring...too cold for me!  :190: Congratulations on the 'down-sizing' though  :046: What's the secret? I've gradually gained a few extra ponds over the last couple of years!  :034:

What an odd looking rabbit you use for your icon, Rucifa.
