Three features Frosties want in a heated glove: Warmth down to the fingertips, maximum dexterity, and not to look like Suzie Ski Bunny. We want it all! Finally we’ve found one that comes closer to meeting the above needs than others we’ve tried to date : Verseo ThermoGear Heated Gloves. Not surprising considering this is the same manufacturer that developed ThermoSoles wireless, rechargeable heated insoles.
The first thing worth noticing is how thin and flexible the glove material is. While most heated gloves are thick and barely pliable enough to wrap around a ski pole, Verseo’s material is spongy, soft and supple, but still manages to keep the wires tucked comfortably away from the skin.
The gloves are thin enough to be used as a liner inside an outer glove for added protection, but are warm enough for toasty heat on their own for most daily uses. The secret to the gloves is their combination of a “micro-thin elastic material with high-tech carbon fiber bundles that spread even heat through each finger and thumb without impacting dexterity.” We’re not sure how the technology works, but it sounds divine! The stretchy fabric also helps ensure a good, comfortable fit.
The gloves are lightweight and so are the environmentally-friendly Lithium Ion batteries. Three levels of heat can be switched up, down or off through an easy-to-reach button on the cuff – no need to expose your fingers to the cold while making adjustments! The warmest setting is 93 °F (34 °C) – not the highest level we’ve seen on a heated glove, but plenty warm for everyday activities and will certainly take the chill off that cold car steering wheel in the morning.
The actual heating time will depend on the outside temperature, the heating level selected, and whether or not the gloves are worn alone or under another glove or mitten. Generally, the batteries will last 2 hours on High, and up to 5 hours on the Low setting.
While trying the gloves on one chilly fall day indoors for a first impression, the heat on “High” got too warm, so I turned them down, and then started reading a document while sitting next to my laptop. Some emails came in and I went to check them. Then moved some files between folders and suddenly realized – I still had the gloves on. How was that possible while wearing heated gloves? The dexterity is amazing!
These may not be made of the warmest material we’ve seen, but the balance of heat down to the fingertips, plus the level of manual dexterity they support, is a combination we’ve yet to find in any other heated glove. And they are light years slimmer and less noticeable than others we’ve tested. If you can fit the skirt under a coat or a jacket, they’ll look like a regular pair of stretchy gloves.
