Good heated gloves work better than heated grips anyway. I have some Gerbing gloves that I really like. Too bad the motorcycle show is history. It was great for trying on gear at the Gerbing booth.

Another heated gear vendor that is highly regarded is Warm and Safe. Don't know if the have gloves.

I doubt you'll find many, if any, gloves with their own battery pack that would be suitable for motorcycling. What you might do is install a separate battery on the bike just for the gloves. That way you can choose from the best motorcycle specific options. When you plug the bike in at the end of the day to charge it, do the same for the extra battery. With it wired up the right way, it would be simple and quick.

Not a bad habit at all. People have discussions. It's not all about the OP and what they want to talk about. If someone doesn't like it they can start their own forum, but it probably won't be very popular.

Yep, these https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...-heated-gloves seem to be the best choice. The market sucks. Buy from RevZilla or Amazon, keep the packaging and return if/when they fail.

These aren't moto-gloves but I wear them on my bike anyway. I got them for skiiing, snowshoeing, flyfishing on the East Walker in the Winter.

They are fuckingtoasty, and kind of cheap.

Seems that the fly heated gloves look about as bulky as my Cortech Scarab winter gloves. They keep me warm just fine, but lack the dexterity I crave, just like every winter glove I've used. I installed "Heat Demonz", under grip, grid style grip heaters, after reading all the good reviews. Installed and wired them in to a switched power source, with a custom made switch bracket so everything looks OEM. Other than the fact that they are warm, when I take my gloves off after the ride and touch the grips, I wouldn't even know they existed on my bike. Looking at Barkbuster Storm hand guards after a friend at work who had the same result with factory heated grips for his MT10 (FZ10) added the handguards and said it made a big difference in being able to keep his hands warm and to feel the heat from the heaters...

One advantage of heated gloves over heated grips is you keep wearing them on your rest stops, and without wind your fingers warm up quickly.

Don't pick gloves that aren't designed for motorcycle use. In an accident they'll rip apart in an instant.

OP, again I suggest getting some quality gloves from a reputable motorcycle manufacturer. Gerbing and Warm & Safe would be the top choices. Then figure out the battery part of the equation. The gloves that come with a battery for each glove either aren't going to give you the heat you need or they won't last very long. That's why I suggest finding a place on your bike for a good lithium ion motorcycle battery. Make sure it's secure and can't be ripped off. Or make it super easy to attach and unattached so you can take it inside the office or home when you arrive. Make the holder the battery goes in easy to attach to the bike. Lots of quick disconnect connectors out there. If you've got a rack, that will make it much easier. Then get a cord from either Gerbing or Warm & Safe that will run inside your sleeves. And be sure to get a proper controller so you can adjust the heat. If you can mount it on your bike that makes it much easier to use.

Good luck.

I'd question the crashworthiness of those as they're designed for snow mobile use. See my other posts.

The durability is a good point. I don't need them to last long though so i'd still prefer battery on glove. If they last an hour that's plenty. I wish i read that were snowmobile gloves before ordering.... Oh well hopefully the return policy is decent if they turn out to be too fragile.

Another thought would be to get an electric jacket liner. For that you'd definitely need a larger battery. But the nice thing is that the jackets come with the glove connections already built into the arms of the jacket. At least Gerbing does that. Very handy. Put the jacket liner on, grab the end of the connector with your hand as you put your arm in your outer jacket and then the connector is just hanging there out of the sleeve, ready to plug the gloves into. Just one connector going to the controller.

If you ever consider going with that option, make sure you get a battery up to the task of powering both the gloves and the jacket.

Or.....you could get a small Honda generator and mount it to the rack. Extend your bike's range as well!

OP, the best option seems to be battery heated glove liners.

From what I've seen, good options don't come cheap. The ones under $140 aren't well rated.

Also, I would look to get a 20k mAhr battery charger, a 5v system and run the wires up the sleeves and to a pocket. You couldn't get a second battery charger as a backup. Alternatively, you can get a 12v system and wire it into your motorcycle but that seems like a pain.

These guys seem to have a bunch of solutions: All Heated Glove Liners

Also, I know we went off topic for a bit with the hippohands stuff, but maybe that's enough to keep your hands warm on the ride. Yes, they look incredibly dorky, especially on a Zero, but often times looking cool goes less-than-stellar comfort or utility.
