Heated Glove Reviews


Leather and Heat for Winter Bikers This latest version of the Warmthru battery heated gloves are specifically designed for motorcycling. The new all-leather outer shell feels thick and supple. The interior fabric is soft and comfortable and the gloves feature a Hipora waterproof breathable membrane liner. The gloves proved waterproof in the webBikeWorld “Bucket Test”. The gloves …

Inexpensive Instant Heat The Joe Rocket “Rocket Burner” gloves are new for the winter of 2014. These are textile gloves with a “stainless core heating system” pumping out 3 levels of near-instant heat where it counts — on top of the fingers and thumb. The gloves are also claimed waterproof, with a Hipora liner. But one didn’t …

Volt “Titan” Battery Heated Gloves Review The Volt Titan 7 Men’s 7v Leather Heated Gloves are comfortable, waterproof and warm. They’re not specifically designed as motorcycle gloves, but other than the absence of hard protectors, you’d never know it. The gloves are slightly bulky, but that is the case with most winter motorcycle gloves. Each Titan glove uses …

Mobile Warming LTD Max Battery Heated Gloves The Mobile Warming LTD Max heated gloves are comfortable and have a thinner profile than the Volt Titan gloves reviewed in Part 1 of this series. The thinner profile provided by the Exkin Air insulation has a downside, however. The Mobile Warming gloves registered the same 150° F as the …

VQuattro “Squadra” Heated Motorcycle Gloves Review The VQuattro Squadra gloves are the company’s top-of-the-line offering for 2012. The Squadra gloves incorporate all of the excellent features found in the VQuattro Lazio gloves (review), plus a very unobtrusive battery-operated heating system. The price is actually not out of line with other battery or wired heated motorcycle gloves. But you …

Warmthru G4 Heated Gloves Review The Warmthru G4 heated gloves are plenty warm; no doubt about it! They’re also waterproof and windproof and they have a comfortable lining. And a few other features have been added based on webBikeWorld feedback. The G4 battery-operated heated gloves put out more heat over a longer period of time …

Gerbing Hybrid Heated Gloves Gerbing Hybrid Gloves are powered by a battery pack or the motorcycle’s electrical system. Either way, they provide evenly distributed warmth using Gerbing “Microwire” technology. This has been a winter for the record books in the Mid-Atlantic (and the North and the South and the Mid-West — and don’t forget the UK…). So it’s …

Warmthru G3 Fingerheater Battery Heated Gloves and G1 Battery Heated Glove Liners Battery heated gloves have a great deal of potential for motorcycle riding and they will hopefully equal the heat generated by wired gloves someday soon. This is more of an update or report than a review, and it serves as the final installment of …

Tourmaster Synergy Gloves Review These Tourmaster Synergy gloves barely put out any heat, unlike the Tourmaster Synergy heated vest, which pumps out almost too much. In my opinion, the gloves are clumsy, they make my hands sweat, the gauntlets are strange and the wiring connectors get in the way. I really like the Tourmaster Synergy vest but, …

Warmthru Fingerheaters Battery Heated Gloves My safe prediction is that within the next year or two, motorcyclists will be freed from their wired heated vests, pants, gloves and who knows what else. Time — and technology — marches on, and as new generations of batteries get smaller, lighter and more powerful, the day will soon come …
