Do you love to stay active and get outdoors even when the temperature drops? Many people think cold weather is a sign that they should hang up their hiking boots, hunting gear, and mountain bikes, because to go out in the cold, wind, wet and snow is just too uncomfortable. Without the proper gear, going outside in the cold for long periods of time can be disastrous, as you leave yourself exposed to temperatures that can slow your blood flow and cause you to get frost bite or even lose your finger and toes. You can avoid all of the hassle of having to periodically come back inside to warm up by using battery operated gloves.
Now, if you’ve never heard about battery operated gloves before, and you think they sound more like a prop from a science fiction movie than something you can use on your next winter trip, it’s time to think again. These gloves represent the latest innovations in heat producing technologies, and while being incredibly successful at keeping your fingers warm and flexible in cold weather, they are actually quite comfortable and affordable. You don’t have to stay plugged into the wall while you wear them, because they are fitted with their own long life battery to supply the power.
There are several options available to you when you go to shop for battery operated gloves, and you should do a little bit of research to know which one will be right for you. Which type of glove you choose will depend on the size of your hand and how you plan on using the gloves. Some activities, like skiing and snowboarding are very active, and often allow you to keep your blood flowing without much extra protection. For the coldest days on the slopes, you will want to look for battery heated gloves that have a long battery life so you can get more runs in.
If you are going to be spending a lot of time out in the cold in the same position, such as in a hunting blind or in a tent, then you’re going to want the most heavy duty battery operated gloves that you can find. These gloves will have the longest battery lives and will also be made from thick sturdy materials that can protect your hands from the chilly temperatures after dark.
