Keis G501 heated gloves £189

Tested by Emma Franklin, two months Gone are the days of heated gloves be­ing lit­tle more than oven mitts, the G501 look and feel more like three-sea­son leather sports gloves, pack­ing hard car­bon knuckle pro­tec­tion, wrist strap and re­in­forced palms. As such, they’re CE ap­proved as Per­sonal Pro­tec­tive Equip­ment. On an early morn­ing 5-de­gree blast up north, the G501s per­formed like no other heated gloves I’ve ever worn. The heat­ing el­e­ments run down each fin­ger and the backs of the hands which, set on their medium set­ting, man­aged to keep me at the per­fect tem­per­a­ture. How­ever, it was their over­all lack of bulk that I found most im­pres­sive. The Hi­pora wa­ter­proof mem­brane has so far kept me dry in a heavy down­pour, and the three-stage heat-con­trol but­ton on the back of the hand is very easy to op­er­ate.
