StormTracker Heated Sensor Glove
Some folks hide during big, nasty winter storms, but others like to go out on the mountain when the wind is blasting, the snow is pounding down, and everybody else has run for cover. For those hardy souls, as well as those with chronically chilly digits, the Outdoor Research StormTracker Heated Glove is a lifesaver. A Gore-Tex Windstopper soft shell is fully waterproof and breathable, while a goatskin leather palm adds durability and additional grip. A soft, moisture-wicking polyester fleece lining and AltiHeat battery-powered heating system combine to provide the ultimate warmth. Running off a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, AltiHeat provides three heat settings to keep your fingers functional when temps are so low that your spit freezes before it hits the ground. The gusseted cuff has a locking zipper to make sure heat stays in and snow stays out, while the StormTracker's light and dextrous design makes it as suitable for ice climbing and single-day mountaineering as it is for resort skiing.

These gloves are nice, quality is nice. But don't waste your money with these gloves! They run very large, and they don't keep my hands warm at all. At the highest setting, the top of my hands are slightly warm and only one or two of my fingers are warm. The rest of my fingers are so cold. It's also very disappointing that Backcountry charges the customer a return shipping fee. If the product doesn't work as advertised, it shouldn't cost the customer anything to return an item. Very poor customer service!

Excellent idea -- Poor execution
- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size
Given that my fingers are extremely sensitive to the cold AND I love cross country skiing, I've been limited to the right pair of gloves that keep me warm, but are thin enough to allow for the level of activity that skate skiing requires. That's why I was really excited about these OR Storm Tracker gloves. They seemed to be the perfect weight for cross country skiing, and promised to deliver heat all the way to my fingertips. Unfortunately I've been pretty disappointed with these gloves on a few fronts: It's been really tough to get them to work consistently. My first set of batteries lasted 7 times, before one of them died within an hour. Reaching out to the OR customer service rep, he said "our heated glove batteries have around a year life span before they need to be replaced, not surprised that you are seeing the low performance, and amazed you made it this long!" Replacement batteries are $50, so a significant portion of the cost of the gloves goes to having to replace the batteries around once per season, according to OR, which they don't advertise. Second, there seems to be something wrong with the connection as one of the gloves turns off by itself during activity. Finally, the heat it delivers to the fingertips (even on the highest settings) is barely noticeable. I would consider other options before purchasing these products.

Do the heating elements extend into the fingers?

What is the battery rated at in mAh ? Can we buy spare batteries? How much?

How long does the battery last? I am often an all day skier getting coldest towards the end of the day.

Hi Walter, the better lasts 8 hrs on the low setting, 5 hrs on the medium setting, and 2.5 hrs on the high setting.
