Heated gloves

Postby ltcolsburns » Fri Dec 02, 2011 21:19 21

I am pretty much a year round rider here in southern Indiana. Keep everything warm during the cold weather except my fingers. Can anyone recommend a good heated glove. Looking at either battery or 12 Volt from my majesty. Would appreciate anyone's recommendation.

The most commonly used manufacturer of heated gloves is Gerbing. They're a bit pricey, but are considered to be some of the best cold weather gear out there for bikers.

One way to keep your fingers -- and other extremities -- warm is to keep your torso warm. When your core starts getting cold, it shuts off the heat to the rest of your body.

That is so very true. I have been pleasently surprised to find out how "comfortable" I can ride when temperatures drop into the 20's by wearing a leather jacket under my winter coat (ski pants and thermals help the legs, but that's a different topic). Keeping your chest warm keeps you heart pumping warm blood and helps to keep the air in your lungs warm. The warms the rest of your body, a bit. My fingers still freeze, but that's just me. It doesn't take long to warm up once I reach my destination, either.
Enjoy the Day!

I have a set of Gerbing G3 gloves for several years now, they are warm and very comfortable. The price now is lower than when I bought them.

Do those gloves plug in to the bike or battery powered? I could use some heated gloves sometimes on my commute. 30 mins in the morning is really all I need, so rechargeable battery packs would cover that.

Gerbing G3's are "plug in" to the vehicle power.

My son has a pair of Fly "Ignitor" battery powered gloves, which he loves. Note - these do not have armor.
