I rate these gloves as fair. I've used the heating elements maybe a dozen times. Most winters lately are not that cold so I use other gloves. The heat wire is not where it's needed, you can feel it's located on the hand back. There the veins are carrying the blood away from your hand so it does the fingers nearly nothing. So I opened up the glove and found the wire is about 12" long. Plenty long enough to move it where it's needed, nearer the fingers. Since I have the 3 finger style glove cover [G.C.] I ran the wire 3/4 down the index finger. The rest of the wire near the knuckles and what was left on the thumb. The other 3 fingers huddle to themselves keeping warm. NOW these gloves work NICE!!! They work even nicer when you use glove liners or even better yet, [G.C.]. Using G.C. holds the heat inside the glove, liners do not. I can ride to minus 17*F and at 65 mph with ease. Do waterproof spray these gloves a couple times a season, holds back the water and air infiltration. The seams are not that tight. I'm highly surprised, the video says $29.99. Here they're $100.00!!!!? WOW, some markup! BUT, these gloves are definitely NOT worth more than $30.00. Are they worth it? Sure at around $30.00. Higher than say $50 may as well invest in better quality heat gloves. ~FM
Pros:Water resistant. Warm, not hot. Best worn with Glove Covers and/or liners. Light weight with rechargeable batteries but you get shorter heat time. RECOMMEND? Yes but they are cheap.
Cons:Not water proof. Cheap thin battery holder = DO NOT DROP! Battery box switch broke after a dozen movements. Replacements are NOT available. You'll need to Jeri-Rig something. RECOMMEND? EHmmmm.... yaaaa, I guess so.
