If you’re into skiing, ice fishing, sledding, snowshoeing, or snowmobiling, you know the benefits of having heated gloves. No matter the season, they can be a lifesaver, especially if you have a long commute and a cold car (and steering wheel). Finding stylish heated gloves and technology-friendly gloves that fit well and are comfortable and reliable, however, isn’t the easiest.
There are many different types of heated gloves, material options, and other available features on the market, but we’ve done the research to bring you the best of the best. Your hands will thank us!
To stay completely warm on cold days, you’ll want to make sure any gloves you look for are wind- and weather-proofed. Look for outer shells made from a nylon or polyester blend. If you are able to try them on beforehand, make sure you can clench your fists and they don’t ride up.
Your activity level, body type, and hand size should also be taken into consideration when choosing the best heated gloves, so make sure you spend time reading the reviews to see what other customers think of the fit. From there, think about how long you need them to stay warm. If you work outdoors in frigid temps, the longer, the better. If you’re mainly using them while you ski, you may be able to get away with a shorter warming span.
