Gloves that can self-heat are a necessity – keeping hands warm and eliminating cold-chapped fingers. Most have rechargeable batteries, and for out in the winter wilderness they could be a crucial element in your survival.
When buying heated gloves, it’s important to be able to carry out your chores whilst wearing them. The following pairs came out on top in our tests.
We were highly impressed with these temperature controlled heated gloves. For up to 6 hours our hands were toasty.
With a range of sizes available, we found they fitted well, transmitting the heat to every inch of our hands. Tasks were still doable as the material is designed to be durable and flexible. The one year warranty is an added bonus.
The battery life could be improved a little, but this isn’t a deal breaker.
Warm, budget friendly whilst still allowing functionality - an easy recommend.
With an extra large heating area, these are super effective, whilst allowing full movement, and thanks to the breathable material, incredibly comfortable.
In the depths of winter, the large heating zone, with its rapid response, is hugely appreciated, and there’s little need to remove these babies. We could chop wood, light a fire and drive easily and still remain cosy and warm. Being waterproof is an added bonus.
It’s worth ordering a size up as they can be a little on the small side.
Efficient, waterproof and very comfortable, the innovative heating zone makes these the perfect survival gloves.
With a simple hook and loop closure system, these are not only good looking, but functional, and well considered too. Adjustable cuffs, heat control with 3 settings, and up to 7 hours of warmth on one charge – what’s not to like?
The closure design meant these were easy to remove, and more importantly, put back on in a hurry. With 7 whole hours of comfort before needing to recharge, Touch Screen technology, and being made from lightweight but beautifully warm ActiveSoft material, these heated gloves have really impressed us.
The cuffs felt a little tight initially, until we realized they are adjustable – no fool like an old fool, or several old fools!
If you're looking for something that delivers on its promises and will keep your hands from freezing, even in the lowest temperatures, whilst still allowing activities, including cell phone use, these should be top of your list.
