On-demand warmth.

When commutes to work feel like an epic journey, pull on the Outdoor Research Oberland Heated Gloves. Designed for use with AltiHeat technology—a rechargeable battery-powered heating system—these gloves offer on-demand warmth. Different colors act as heat indicators for the different settings (red for warmest, yellow mid-warm, green low-warm), and they work with one simple button.

In addition to battery-powered heat, EnduraLoft insulation provides essential warmth on moderate days. The WINDarrest shell shields your hands from wind and water, while the water-resistant goat leather palm offers superior gripping power. With an under-cuff design and in-town styling, you'll be ready for anything Jack Frost throws at you.

Good, not great

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've never had heated gloves before so I don't have a comparison but I've found these good but slightly disappointing. I have Raynaud's and I will say in general heated gloves are way better than not! I live in the upper Midwest where single degree highs and below zero windchills are not unusual. I use these for day to day commuting and walking my dog. My early experience with these is even with three warmth settings they don't get as warm as I would like, especially in the fingers. I'm sure it's hard to distribute the heat to each finger but it could be better. Also, battery life is not as advertised, so that was disappointing. It's not terrible, it's just not as advertised. That said, the gloves are pretty warm on their own. They are stylish. The touchscreen tips work great. The battery and charging system is designed well and simple to use. Overall, I'm glad I have heated gloves and find them worth the extra cost. But for the cost I find these to be a little lacking in overall heat and battery power.

HI Jeff, I have a pair of our heated gloves and havent had an issue with the battery life. Are you charging them fully (8+ hours)? Also, only 2 hours on high... 6- 8 hours on low. If you have changed them fully and they are still not right, please reach out to OR and they will replace them for you.

Thank you for writing!

Thanks Leta, I'll do some more focused testing and contact OR if I think it's valid. Can I ask you, is there a difference in actual heat between gloves and if so what would be a step up from these?

These gloves are the best.

Ive used them a couple times now and they work like a freaking champ! These gloves are amazing when your hands get cold on the slopes! Heats your hands right up!

Thanks Tanner!
