    Heavyweight warmth in a battery-powered package.

    The Outdoor Research Lucent Heated Glove uses AltiHeat's battery to provide heavyweight warmth at the ski resort, and three different settings accommodate more than just the lowest temperatures. Gore-Tex gives this glove guaranteed waterproofing that's still breathable for active endeavors, and EnduraLoft insulation ensures warmth. Outdoor Research padded the back-of-hand for protection and added a leather palm and overlays for traction and durability.

    What do you think about this product?

    Have questions about this product?

    Solid product - see additional comments

      First pair had one defective battery, so I had to replace - in short, a nicely made glove that does indeed provide additional warmth but may need some help in biting temps. I am just finishing a week of skiing in Colorado where temps where at times below zero F. On brutal days, I needed hand warmers along with gloves running on "High"; when temps were above 18-20 F, gloves alone were fine. So net/net, while helpful, the gloves alone may not suffice in very cold weather.

      Additional comments:

      1) Fit was very good - comfortable and high on the cuff
      2) Slim profile on batteries much better than some other chunky batteries I had tried in which I was very aware of little bricks on my wrists - not so here.
      2) Power indicators easy to read/use, but -
      a) would be great to have a battery level indicator - perhaps illuminate just the 'O' or "R" when below 50% ?
      b) I found my power levels changing when I was unaware - not difficult to make contact with the button inadvertently, so perhaps a second button or switch when changing levels would eliminate unwanted changes.
      c) Would be great if a USB connector could be used - so many places have USB inputs on lamps etc which would allow one to simply bring a cable versus the power connector. Not to mention minimizing impact if one loses the original....
      d) would also be helpful to have a more powerful heating element nearer to the fingertips as opposed to the rest of the hand.

      Again, overall, a good product - while I would not accuse these gloves of being wildly inexpensive, they do provide help, and I found myself focused more on my freezing face (even with mask) as opposed to cold fingers.

      I would recommend this product


      Stay Warm - Ski Longer

        I'd recommend carrying an extra set of gloves with you on long days. These things are warm, but, that also means you sweat. After several hours, they can get wet/cold.

        Outdoor Research Lucent Heated Glove

        I'm hoping the vendor rep can answer a question for me.

        Currently my hands get cold snowmobiling. The snowmobile has heated grips, so my palms burn when on the highest setting, but by nighttime, with the wind and lack of movement, my fingers get cold. Thus, looking at heated gloves.

        These Lucent gloves claim to be made with GorTex for waterproofing, but what about windproofing? Do you think the Lucent glove or the StormTracker glove is a better fit for snowmobiling where you have cold + wind?

        Thanks for any help.

        Not what I had hoped

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        I also have Reynaud's and used these gloves for the first time at Vail this past weekend. Even though I had the gloves on "red", my hands froze and I was very uncomfortable. I could tell there was heat in the gloves but it wasn't hitting my hands where I needed it and my hands were painfully cold. Am actually returning these gloves for a refund.

        Kimberly, I am so sorry these did not work for you! I was in Vail at 5 degrees last month, and I also have Reynaud's. I was sweating on high, so I had to keep them on between low and medium.

        The Lucent Glove and Mitt have TWICE the heat contact on the back of the hand than the next closest competitor. They also give out 47% more heat (watts) than the competition.

        Really not sure why these did not work for you, but I am sorry. Both OR and Backcountry have great return policies. Hope you find what you are looking for!

        The gloves I've been searching for.

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I have reynauds--for the unfamiliar, it's a circulatory disease. In cold weather, blood vessels in your extremities shunt, and your hands freeze. Freeze. These are the gloves that have saved my outdoor happiness. I've spent thousands of dollars on gloves, glove heaters, mittens, etc. These render them all past history.

        They're as warm and waterproof as a premium pair of goretex gloves should be expected to be. All day in the snow? No problem, whether the snow is dry or wet. As gloves, they're really nice gloves.

        And then you turn on the power.

        With the power on, they're life-changing. There are 3 settings. On the low setting, battery life is over 9 hours (that was the limit of my patience, not the batteries). On low, you don't notice the heat. You don't really notice your hands. It's just that your hands never get cold. On high, battery life is around 3 hours...and the gloves are palpably warm inside. It's amazing. I haven't tried the medium setting for duration yet.

        We haven't had super cold temps yet; I've worn them down to 0 degrees...but nothing colder. They've been great (on low) at those temps. They're completely windproof and waterproof.

        When you insert the battery pack, make sure that it's all the way plugged in. That's the only issue I've had--a loose connection caused by my failure to fully plug in. Charging is quick and easy--a couple hours to a full charge (and it charges both batteries at once).

        I picked up a spare set of batteries, and recommend it. You can have a good, long day of coverage with some high and some low. You can take the gloves off, your hands get cold, you put the gloves back on, and instant warmth. The heating grid is incredibly well designed--the parts of your hand that would otherwise get cold...well...stay warm.

        Next to my Arcteryx Macai jacket, these are my favorite cold weather gear. Highly, highly recommended.

        The gloves I've been searching for.

        Hey Lawfarm - GREAT review, Thank you! These heated gloves are really amazing and your review is spot on. More than double the heated element of our next competitor (more surface area for heat) and 47% more energy output (5.3 watts vs 3.6 watts). Enjoy the warmth!!

        What is the difference between the Outdoor Research Lucent and the new Capstone heated gloves (besides the big increase in price)? The tips of my fingers are constantly cold and I've tried heated gloves in the past with no success, so I'm curious if I'll see better results with either of these gloves. Are there any other heated glove options you would recommend, like the Black Diamond Solano?

        Best Answer

        Hey Nicholas - The Capstone has a higher quality of synthetic insulation (PrimaLoft HiLoft Silver) as well as a goat leather palm and moisture wicking fleece lining. The Lucent is mainly nylon with some leather in the palm and overlays. I would recommend either of the Outdoor Research Gloves over the BD Solano. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.

        Nicholas,



        Kyle is right on. Both actually have Primaloft, but the Capstone has more of it. However, the main price difference is in the heating element: The Capstone has TWICE the coverage of the Lucent (198" of heating element vs 99" of heating element). The next closest competitor has 46" of heating element - big difference!



        Hope that helps,
