These gloves are fantastic. The construction is excellent and they're fairly warm on their own but with the heater turned on they are incredible. It's amazing how much better your whole body feels when your hands aren't frozen. When on the first or second setting there isn't a sensation of warmth, more like your hands are just comfortable, neutral, like you're comfortably indoors with no gloves on at all. With the 3rd setting they bring the heat, no mistaking these gloves are heated. Worth the investment.
