Keis heated gloves
« on: January 16, 2019, 09:56:28 PM »
Bought some of these as it is the back of my hands and fingers I have trouble with.
Ive had heated grips before and they are help but I fancied trying this approach

Fused connector from the battery simple to fit and pops out front edge of the seat.
Ran the leads inside an old soft shell jacket I wear as a layer when it is colder.
No separate controller, each glove has a push button on the back to turn on/off to one of three heat settings.
Dont notice the leads, gloves are comfy and warm as they are (3 season weight /thickness). Once the turned on they give a good consistent heat across the back of the hands and down each finger.
They were just what I needed for a 2 hour round trip on Monday night. Dual carriageway and 4degrees. Kept hands comfortable on the middle setting.
Very pleased

Plus 1 for heated gloves!

I went cordless though- Bering. Good enough for 2-3 hrs on a full charge.

I too had heated grips and my palms loved them but back of hands always still cold, not anymore  :305:

Id thought about going the battery route. Those RST ones have the battery in the cuff? Wasnt  sure whether that bit of weight on the wrist would be a distraction/hinderance.
The Keis ones can be fed from a separate Li battery. Ive actually just got a Keis heated waistcoat as well and the gloves can be daisy chained off it. Again has the option of sticking an Li battery in a pouch.
I tried the waist coat and gloves combo today. I was disappointed it was 7 degrees! With both on the middle setting and with no usual extra layers on it was perfect.
Ive got used to plugging in and switching on now after only a few uses.
I needed new winter gloves and a new inner layer so going heated was only an extra on top.

You really dont notice the batteries, they are completely unobtrusive.

Used the heated vest and gloves on a hour a half ride in 2degrees today. Awesome - keeping your core warm really helps maintain all over comfort and the gloves just keep my hands comfortable ( no roasting hot palms and frozen fingers)
Im a convert
