I recently bit and bought a pair of battery heated gloves. I won't try that one again, but who's to say that there isn't a pair out there from a different manfct. that actually work. What I REALLY want is a pair of Gerbing gloves, but yikes! they're $180. I live in CA for Pete's sake. Heated gloves? really? Well, I've got skinny fingers and I want to ride year round. If I commuted or lived somewhere the riding season was short because of cold weather, I would totally go the Gerbing route and not get my hopes up about the battery powered.
There are old riders and bold riders, but not a lot of old, bold riders. Shiny side up.
