Heated gloves

Post  mtbeerwah on Sat 21 Jul 2018, 7:21 pm

Been wanting heated gloves for awhile.
Bit the bullet and bought some. 
Tomorrow is going to be the test.
Group ride, and we're going into a -4 area in the morning.
Will report back with thumb, or thumb down. 
I really am over cold fingers and hands. Go to use the brake, and your hand doesn't work.

The brand...Tourmaster. 
Has 4 settings.   On high, they feel....warm, not hot. Lowest setting, I didn't think I could even feel it, BUT..at no point did my hands feel cold, when I thought the lowest was doing nothing, they just felt comfortable.
The tell tale was,  there was 7 in the ride today,  and I was the only one that didn't suffer from severe symptoms of numb hands, in the peak of the morning cold.
So I guess they were worth it. They're also a very comfortable glove just on their own.

I've had several pairs of heated grips over the years. 
They too are good things, but it's the outside of your hands and fingers, that cop the brunt of the exposure.
The heating elements in these gloves focus on the exposed parts of your hands, in a better way than what a heated grip can do.  External, opposed to internal 
These are lithium battery operated, not hard wired to the bike.  I wanted to be able to walk around with them when getting off the bike.
