Anyone in need of some extra heat this winter should consider these gloves. With Gore's new windproof Infinium combined with ALTIHeat battery powered heat with three settings the Gripper Heated Sensor is a great option for anyone with cold hands.
Outdoor Research says: Legendary windproof work glove, now loaded with ALTIHeat™ battery-powered warmth.
The Gripper Heated Sensor Gloves are the fusion of two of our oldest, most sought-after protective handwear solutions: The legendary protection and durability of the Gripper Glove, paired with the on-demand warmth of our ALTIHeat™ heated glove technology. This rechargeable battery-powered heating system extends warmth from your back of hand to fingers, and features an easy-to-read power button with settings that adjust to your ideal heat level. The Gripper gloves bring to the table weather-ready windproof and water-resistant protection delivered by 3-layer GORE INFINIUM, along with a protective leather gauntlet at back of hand. The Gripper Heated Sensor Gloves are also loaded with the same standards as others in the AltiHeat Heated Glove collection, like touchscreen-compatible fingertips, zippered battery pockets, and the choicest fit.
Outdoor Research's Gripper Heated Sensor Gloves are an ideal solution to anyone who suffers from cold hands but needs to be out in the elements. The combination of Gore's new windproof Infinium fabric with a quality ALTIHeat designed battery powered heating system makes these gloves a protective and warm option. The low bulk design means they are still highly dexterous with the battery pack fitting into a pocket in the inside of the wrist that is easily forgotten. There are three heat settings with the warmest giving off enough heat for anyone standing in sub zero temperatures for around 2-2.5 ours. The medium setting lasts around 5 hours while the lowest setting will provide 8 hours worth of heat.
The Gore Infinium is is windproof and pretty close to being waterproof too but it doesn't have taped seams so there is a risk of allowing water in. If a fully waterproof glove is critical to you then you may want to look for other options. However, this level of protection has been more than enough for cold, wet days in the mountains to keep my hands warm. The soft, comfortable fleece used on the inner and outer is supported with a tough reinforcement across the palm and fingers to increase durability.
