Perfect for people who get cold hands

This is my second pair of heated gloves from OR. My first pair work so well, I needed something a bit lighter. The Sureshot checks that box. Perfect for light to very cold weather (for Wisco that's at and below freezing), for all sorts of use and applications such as casual wear or skiing

Sizing Way Off

I ordered the gloves, using my standard glove size, and they are wa too small.

Bad batteries or bad gloves

won't heat for longer than 45 mins on LOW. PLUS they are not warm all over the gloves.

Beware of Sizing, Run Very Small!

Typically OR gear fits true to size and fits me well. I own various gloves and mittens in size XL and they all fit great. Likewise with OR clothing. However, these particular gloves fit VERY tight. They are NOT XL in size. In addition to being tight everywhere, the fingers are super short. So for a really expensive pair of gloves, I haven't been able to wear them and can't comment on their long term heating ability in the field.

Good glove for casual events only.

These gloves are quite effective for casual strolls in town or social gatherings with friends. However, they fall short under extreme conditions and are not waterproof, so additional waterproof layers would be advisable. Another point of contention is their sizing chart. I found the large size too restrictive in the thumb area, whereas the XL seemed overly spacious, almost half of an inch around the fingers. The sizes appear to vary significantly. I initially purchased both the large and XL sizes, but eventually returned the XL. On the upside, the gloves do keep your hands warm and largely align with their advertised function, although there is room for improvement in terms of waterproofing and sizing.

Product Broke

I wrote a 5-star review for this after using the gloves for 1 month (see B Brown review). Unfortunately, the product broke after being used for only 2 months--the on/off switch stopped working on the right glove. Worse, when I called OR for service, they said I would need to wait 4 weeks before they would even respond to me! I expect that with some back-and-forth when they finally get back to me, plus mailing delays, it would be 6-8 weeks before I would see a replacement. By that time, the cold weather would be over. What's the point of cold weather gloves if they aren't available in the winter?

Great for biking!

These gloves are great for biking! I've used them on around 20 bike rides this year and it has made my winter rides so much more enjoyable. First, some background. My hands get painfully cold when biking below 40 degrees. I would wear a set of glove liners underneath my ski gloves, yet my fingertips would become painful after about 30 minutes. My riding style is a road bike, averaging 13-15 mph for 1 to 2 hours, with intervals of 20-25 mph on downhill slopes. I even tried chemical warmers (my ski gloves had a pocket for them), but no luck. These gloves just solve the problem. They have plenty of dexterity for operating the shifters, brakes, buttons on my bike's lights, etc. The batteries aren't uncomfortable at all - after 2 minutes I hardly know that they are there. Most importantly, my fingertips stay just fine during the ride. When the temp is 32-35, I stay on high setting the entire ride. When the temp is 35-40, I stay on high for 15 mins and then drop to medium. The gloves are good enough without battery heat between 45-50. Above 50, the gloves are too hot to wear even with their heaters off. Some tips, if you buy these gloves. 1. I pre-warm the gloves for 5 minutes on high before each ride. 2. Don't expect your hands to feel toasty warm when you are riding at 12-15 mph and 32 degrees. They will feel slightly cool, but not uncomfortable. 3. The gloves feel very stiff when new. Don't panic. After 5 or so rides, they soften up and feel soooo comfortable! 4. I charge my glove's batteries after every ride. It takes several hours to charge them each time. This is no big deal for me. 5. I don't know how long the batteries will keep the gloves warm. I've never had a problem. I've probably kept the gloves on high for a maximum of 75 minutes (typically 15-45 mins).

Good regular glove - but lacking as a heated glove

I had high hopes for this glove as OR has alway put out great gear. Unfortunately this glove fell short. The glove itself was great but the heating aspect was not good. On lower settings you could not tell it was on and when using the high setting the batteries died in just over an hour - plus it takes a long time to charge the batteries. Not the glove I was hoping for and would not recommend it.

Only "OK" for cycling

I've used twice at a few degrees below freezing while road cycling. They worked OK but I could not keep on the high setting for too long for multi-hour rides (high setting limited to 2 hours) and so I kept at lower settings with fingers cool but OK. Gloves probably not designed for so much wind. I may try with cortex overfits on top next time. I have also used for photography at the same temperature where they worked great.

These are junk. Do not buy.

These are such a waste of money. They are only warm on the hottest setting. The battery lasts an hour at most and takes 7 hours to charge. Mine stopped charging after only using them a handful of times.
