Which heated mitts will Q keep my hands hap­pi­est?

I guess it might be an age thing, but I’ve de­cided that I need some heated gloves. What are my op­tions? Mike Spinks, Cam­ber­ley

An­swered by Keith Rois­set­ter, In­fin­ity Mo­tor­cy­cles Do you want them to have an in­built bat­tery or be wired to the bike? I’d choose the for­mer as there’s no muck­ing about with wires and they should last long enough be­tween charges (2-4 hours) for a com­mute. Oth­ers pre­fer us­ing the bike’s power as it doesn’t mat­ter how long the ride is and you don’t have to re­mem­ber to charge them.

The Ox­ford Hot­gloves are bike-pow­ered only, as are the Gerb­ing XRS 12 shorts. Spend the same money on the Gerb­ing T12 hy­brids or the Keis X800is and you will also have the op­tion of dual power if you buy the bat­tery packs as well.

For bat­tery-power-only, look to the RST Ther­motech or the Ber­ing Ve­su­vio.
