Heated gloves and winter riding...

This morning was the coolest so far since spring.

Got me thinking about winter riding that will be right around the corner.

Last year I SWORE I'd not freeze my fingers again this year so....

Any one have recomendations on heated gloves?

I am leaning towards the sub-$100 liners that are battery powered as opposed to the $300+ Gerber gloves with a controler....

My biggest problem is only in the mornings on my rides in to work.
If the temp is much lower then 40 my fingers get needles.

No fun...

we definitely had a thread about this last year maybe i can find it...

i remember latex gloves + regular gloves being mentioned. it's almost impossible to keep your hands warm, i just wear my small wrist gloves with the snowboarding gloves on top of them but it kinda restricts finger movement. heated grips are by far the best.

My problem isn't the palm of my hands though, it's the actual fingers.
I'm afraid if I install grips it won't work.

Fingers get cold due to loss of circulation as the are the furthest from the heart on the arms. Grips will keep warmth in your hand which in turn will keep the blood in your fingers warmer. I plan on these this winter.

I don't like bulky gloves, so this should be a better option for me personally.

BTW newenough.com has some heated gloves as well

I was gonna try the Latex gloves under the regular gloves this year. Like You, last year my finger tips were numb on my way to work but hopefully i dont have the same problem this year. Last year it was an hour ride to work and this year its 15 minutes. Either way, i need to invest in a leather jacket and something for my hands.

Or you could just buy them cheap handwarmers at walmart and tuck em into your gloves. Its what I do. THey work great under your toes and around your neck as well. In fact I used them all winter while working up north in -10F weather and only got cold after about 2 hours out in the weather.

Tried that... didn't work. I tried them under my palm and on top of my hand inside the glove. That is why I am 90+% sure that the grips won't work.

I know it's a circulation thing but doesn't matter. If my fingers are numb and
painful it sucks....

I have a winter suit I wear if the afternoons high isn't going to break 70.
If it does it's too hot on the ride home.

I think I am going to try some of the heated liners that have battery packs and have heated fingers.

That is the ONLY thing I can't deal with.
