- Poor Quality (Review by LMV)
I live outside of North Pole, AK. I bought my first pair last fall to have something to warm to wear when playing outside with the dogs. I had to return that pair (to REI) within a couple of weeks. The heat will not stay on. I bought another pair in December (from REI) and after two month of use, the heat will no longer stay on. For $350 I shouldn't have to go through series of items to trouble shoot the problem,. Nor, should I have to recharge the batteries haver every half hour of use. For $350 I would expect something that would stay charge for at least an hour or two. I will be returning these gloves to REI and looking for another brand. DO NOT buy these gloves.

- Best Gloves (Review by Rod)
Like some other reviewers my hands have been very cold sensitive over the last few years. These gloves let me get outside in the winter with comfort. I agree that is would be nice to have heat over the palmar side of the gloves as that side of my fingers will get cold when gripping poles. Sometimes the battery will pull away from the connector after taking the gloves off and putting them on so some sort of clip to hold those together would be nice. I carry extra batteries for long outings, and I still use glove liners to boost the heat. I have tried other battery powered gloves and these are by far the best out there. Great work OR.

- Great gloves (Review by David)
I wear these gloves to commute to work on a motorcycle in subfreezing temperatures. The wind chill has to be off the charts since I do not have hand guards. My hands have never gotten cold. On longer rides wearing regular gloves my hands get cold after a couple of miles when temperatures are in the 40's. But not with these gloves, which are top notch although not designed for this use per se. For me the improvement would be better knuckle protection like that in the Piledriver.

- Heat in the wrong place (Review by Lance)
The gloves put out the heat but the location of the resistors is wrong ... the back of the hand and dorsal digits. I want the heat situated on the palmar side and same for my fingers, the heat source volarly. Anatomically the neurovascular bundles locate on the palmar side of the hand, the volar-lateral aspect of the fingers, and when heat is applied there the blood flows as vasoconstrictive factors are defeated. I have never cared if my dorsal hand was well heated when volar fingers were still cold. I have boot heaters and damned, they put the heat in the right place, the plantar toes. The gloves have a design issue for me, the heat is on the wrong side. Can durability be engineered into volar heated gloves? I don't know, but that would be my design target.

- Great Heated Gloves, need better connectors (Review by Jeremy)
I have previously owned Hestra, Snowlife and Black Diamond heated gloves, and all of them failed at some point, often within 2 weeks. The Lucent gloves generate much higher levels of heat than the other gloves, which would generally be 'not cold' rather than supplying positive heating.
So far these Lucent gloves have lasted 4 weeks of skiing every day, with the only weakness being the battery connectors. As another reviewer mentions, I have often thought the battery had died, only to find the connector was lose, not disconnected, but not fully pushed home. A more positive lucking connector would make these gloves perfect.

- Wow these are awesome (Review by JimZ)
The past 2 years, I've been dealing with some neuropathy issues and my hands have always been cold. Haven't found any glove warm enough and handwarmers are a pain. These gloves are exactly what I needed. They were sold out when I tried to order early in the season, so I tried a pair from another manufacturer - still left my pinkies cold, wires cut one knuckle, couldn't wait to return. These OR gloves are perfect. Fit well, nice curve, but not stiff. Warmth is uniform - no hot or cold spots. We had an incredibly cold winter in upstate NY this year, but it didn't phase these gloves. I skied and hiked in 10 degree weather with a wind chill to -20 and my hands never, repeat never, got cold. I could get 2 hours use on high so I bought and carried another pair of batteries to get me through a full day. This way I always have a charged pair ready to go. These gloves are worth the expense. I look forward to seeing how many seasons they hold up.

- Great gloves overall (Review by Rod)
My fingers have become extremely cold sensitive over the last few years. These gloves let me get out and stay active through the winter. I think there should be some sort of clip to keep the batteries from pulling away from the connector in the glove. This happens if I have to take the gloves off and on a few times. I have to open the batttery compartment and push the battery back on to the connector. Otherwise great gloves!

- A Great Mitt! (Review by Bobbo)
The mitten in itself is awesome! The construction is first class. It is sized correctly. When the heat is not on I've found my thumb gets colder faster than the rest of my fingers. But, it is all alone!
With the heat on I've gone all day in single digit temps without running out of power and never had to use them on high. The cuff/ gauntlet area is a bit small and doesn't fit over my jacket well. That said: if that was taken care of the Mitten would be five stars plus! I would also like to see a piece of material that could be used a spot for a runny nose.

- EXCELLENT!! (Review by Marc)
I have purchased every heated glove over the years from all of the top outdoor manufacturers hoping that I could finally have at least some tolerable cold hands as I pursued my backcountry winter endeavors. They all failed and I finally had to switch to mittens. It was very sad. OR has figured it out!! The ALTIHeat technology is fantastic. When the digits start getting cold I switch them on to red for a bit then switch to orange or green depending on how cold it is outside. When I'm touring it takes about 40 minutes till the internal furnace is fired up but these babies somehow can keep my fingers right on the edge. Not hot, not freezing, but just right there in my acceptable zone which is incredible. I carry the Lucent ALTIHeat gloves for those blistering -20 to -30 days and they work just as well. Dexterity is BACK!!
