Heated clothing is a godsend for people who enjoy outdoor sports and activities in the winter. However, you don’t have to be a skiing enthusiast to enjoy the benefits of heated gloves as they also come in really handy when riding your bike, walking the dog, or just carrying shopping bags extremely cold weather.
To add, heated gloves are also great for people suffering from bad circulation, stiff joints, or conditions that cause pain in the joints or restrict blood flow, such as arthritis or Raynaud’s disease.
Here, we’ll take an in-depth look at the top three best heated gloves on the market. We’re going to check what each product has to offer, and ultimately, help you decide which will be the right purchase for you when the temperature drops.
Savior is a specialist manufacturer that stands above the competition due to high-quality products and unparalleled customer satisfaction. They create heated gloves that will keep your hands toasty warm from two to six hours, depending on what heat setting you have them on.
Depending on the temperature outside and how much extra heat you need to keep your hands moving and comfortable, these gloves can be set to three different heat settings from 100 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Just click the “on” button on the back of each glove, and you just have to wait 30 seconds before feeling the full effect of the carbon fiber heating elements kicking out the heat.
The heating elements also offer great coverage, running across the back of your hands, the full length of your fingers, and your thumbs. The batteries are removable and rechargeable using a dual charging pack that is included, so you can use them time and time again.
Although these gloves are only available in three different size options (at the time of writing), we love the fact that they come with an adjustable buckle to make them fit your hand better once on and also a pulley string to keep the gloves secure and snug above the wrists, so as not to let any cold air in. They also have reflective strips across the fingers and back of the hand to help keep you visible at night, and in times of poor visibility.
Another pair of gloves from the heated gloves specialist Savior, these heated gloves were upgraded in 2018. While they cost more to buy, they also pack in more features, so let’s have a look at them.
As with their previous heated gloves, these gloves offer the same fantastic coverage by heating the backs of your hands, full fingers, and thumbs, in just 30 seconds. They have three gear settings (low, medium, and high), offering 100 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit of warmth to keep your fingers warm and the circulation flowing.
So, what sets this pair of gloves apart from the previous product? There are a couple of stand-out features that we can see. The index and thumb fingertips of these newly upgraded gloves have touch sensors incorporated in them, meaning you can easily operate your smartphone in the cold, without having to remove your gloves. This is a really great upgrade if you use your phone a lot, or need to use it for navigational purposes, for example.
The other notable feature is that Savior provided added a warranty. You still get the same great customer service experience as ever, but these heated gloves come with full, one-year peace of mind warranty, just in case anything goes wrong.
Your purchase will also come with a carrying bag for convenience, which their previous version doesn’t. Lastly, they arrive in a nicely presented gift box as well.
The third selection we made in our hunt for the best gloves is this pair from Sun Will. Also sitting at the top of our price range, along with the upgraded gloves from Savior, these gloves from Sun Will use infrared fiber heating elements that stretch across the whole of the back of your hands, all the way up your fingers.
Additionally, they have two rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. A dual charger can fully charge the batteries in around three to four hours. Once fully charged, you can expect the batteries to last anywhere between two and a half hours to six hours, again depending on the heat setting you are using the gloves at.
The battery in each glove slips into an almost invisible, anti-freeze, battery pocket, keeping it safe from the freezing or below freezing conditions you are experiencing. The gloves also feature an ergonomically curved finger design for comfort as well as thick sheepskin-leather covered palms for great non-slip usage.
Finally, these heated gloves also make a great gift as they come nicely packaged in a gift box that includes a carrying bag, a user manual, and a US standard dual charger.
We happily stand behind each one of the heated gloves featured here as great products that are available on the market. However, if forced to choose, our winner for the best heated gloves goes to Savior’s upgraded 2018 heated gloves.
The pair has everything you could want from a heated glove: options for how much heat you want, excellent heat coverage that includes thumbs, and a one-year warranty to boot. If you invest in a pair of these gloves for winter or to engage in winter sports, you’ll be thanking yourself for years to come.
