RE: Electric Gloves/gear
Thanks for the heads up, JD. All I know at this piping is the batteries charged quickly. Next cold day, I’ll test the battery life.

RE: Electric Gloves/gear
I purchased (well ,my buddy did through his shop) a pair of gloves before my mountain trip. As stated, GIANT pain in the butt to wire them through your riding jacket. I ended up taping the wires in under the jacket liner and this helped with the bird nest of wires and the controller.

I wore the glove liners under my Klim windstopper gloves and was very comfortable other than being a little tight. I may purchase another pair of Klims in a larger size just for cold weather riding with the heated liners (the Klims are remarkably warm for how thin they are, almost no wind through at all).

The gloves are great, the brand escapes me right now, and they were on closeout for $77. Seems like a good deal. However, I will now be buying a heated jacket liner just to ease the use of the gloves.

It never ends...

RE: Electric Gloves/gear
The quickest of early reviews on the Joe Rocket Burner gloves....

Was not out long enough to test battery life, but I've used the gloves for a total of about 1.5 hours with 1 hour of that on "High" and they are not yet in need of charging.
Gloves get plenty hot when out of the cold/wind.
My fingers still got very cold after 15 miles (about 50 minutes) on the bike. However, it was +3f with a -12f windchill and I have neither heated grips nor hand guards on my bike.

Not great results, but also not a very fair testing environment.

More on these gloves at a future date.....probably February. LOL
