    Winter gloves Bar mitts What are you using?

    Today was the last straw! My fingers got so freaking cold on the way home
    Are you guys using heated gloves or bar mitts? Came across these heated gloves http://www.thewarmingstore.com/ventu...l#.UxKsoR69KK0
    Thanks for any recommendations...

    I use symtec heated grips and tusk bar mitts. Heated grips are the cats meow. I just put my on last fall and I cant believe ive road all these years freezing my hands off.. I wear regular leather summer gloves in the mid 20's and its nice. I did put a switch on the headllight to turn it off if using the grips on high.

    +1 on the heated hand grips they are the best. I have done a lot of cold riding this year and they have worked great.

    I have Oxford heated grips and a set of Hippo Hands, this is a very effective combination, I can ride in 40* or lower with the grips on low using a pair of plain leather work gloves.

    I've used ATV Mitts for several years now. They are so comfy. I'm sure the heated grips are a great addition to mitts like smalls mentioned.

    I've used heated grips only on an atv, and while the contact area of my palms and fingers were toasty warm, my out hands and fingers were still freezing.

    Additonally, mitts can help keep the elements off.

    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    Got to agree that ATV mits make a noticeable difference & don't get in the way even with my chunky gloves
