Heated gloves for your cold fingers

Blazwear_heated_gloves.jpgCold fingers rule at the moment, at least in the northern hemisphere. Waiting for the bus or train, skiing or snowboarding in the mountains, your fingers are the first hit be low temperatures.

Let’s have a look again to the heated glove market if there is a warm alternative to cold fingers. Sure, using good quality ‘normal’ gloves do the job but heated gloves give you really the cozy feeling in your finger tips.

We have covered heated gloves last December from Zanier but they come for around $ 500.- a price tag that might be too steep for some.

The Blazewear Deluxe Heated Gloves might just be the right thing for your cold fingers. These heated gloves feature carbon polyester based heating elements which warm up to 60 ºC with over three hours heating time delivered from rechargeable or standard 3x AA batteries in each glove.

Blazewear heated gloves are waterproof, windproof and include heating elements in the fingers and the back of hand, which means that the heat reaches the whole hand rather than just the palm.

Unlike the Zanier gloves, the Blazewear only have one heat setting where the on/off switch allows heat to be turned off if too warm but they come at a much lower prize for just $ 49.59 as seen on this online shop (delivery to EU only).

There is no need for cold fingers anymore with these really affordable heated gloves but you need to hurry if you want to buy a pair. We found very few shops which do have them in stock. According the manufacturer the next production will be only available for coming winter season 2008/09.

  1. I just wanted t know if anyone tried the new Vaso glove? Last year’s worked fine for me, but this new one is supposed to be warmer. They’re having a pre sale discount at v5glove.com, any reviews?

  2. Yes, I tried the 08/09 vaso glove, and I must say I was amazed. Soft fabric, 5 diffrernt setting, small battery, this is a product I’ve been looking for for years and I finally found it. Worth every penny to not have cold hans any more! Hope this helped you make the decision!

  3. This purchase was the worst product I’ve ever bought online or in a stare for that matter. The reasons are listed below:

    1. The heating elements/wires moved to the side of the fingers on 8 of the 10 fingers, leaving only that side to be warmed.
    2. The battery housing will break if dropped. Thank God for duct tape.
    3. The power connector doesn’t fit snugly into battery, but a rubber band around the entire battery will secure that connection.
    4. Battery life is very short lived. Recommend you buy rechargeable batteries.
    5. It’s best to turn the gloves on ten minutes before you need them inside. This will warm the gloves up before you get into the cold. Otherwise what little warmth you feel will take a while.
    6. The seams do not seem to be designed for any physical work, because they will split. So don’t shovel or even use a snow blower.
    7. The wire to the battery plug disconnected from the heating elements. I had to cut into the lining in order to reconnect that wire. The manufacturer should try solder and not crimp on connections.

    That’s about it… This produce reminds me of the old George Carlin line. “If you put together two things that have never been put together before, some schmuck will buy it.”

  4. These new Vaso V5 gloves sounded great but they are absolutely useless. I pre-ordered them and had to wait 8 months before they arrived and that was after sending about 5 e-mails to their customer support and being told they would ship at the end of the month (every month). Anyway, they finally arrived and one of the batteries was dead so I had to return that. When I finally got to test them out on the ski slopes, the first battery went dead after about 1 minute (no LEDs lit) and the second battery died after about 2 minutes. They’re just garbage. The instructions say that the batteries have an auto cut out chip to protect them if they get wet and then you have to put them in the charger to reset them. Well, that’s not much use if they cut out on the slopes. If Vaso can sort out the battery problems then this glove might be decent but right now they’re useless. I wouldn’t recommend buying Vaso products because the old gloves and the new V5 gloves have both been a waste of money for me and their customer service is appalling.

  5. This is in reference to my post on March 4, 2009.
    I must say the quality of service of BlazewareUSA far exceeds the quality of the gloves I purchased. I received this email on July 20, 2009.

    Hello David,

    I have just read your review of our Blazewear Deluxe gloves. I apologize for your unfortunate experience with our product. While it is true that a number of your points have been reported by others, I am not aware of another case where so many defects existed in one pair of gloves.

    We, at Blazewear Distributors, LLC, take pride in our products and our reputation for resolving customer issues when reported to us within a reasonable time. As an exception, in light of the considerable inconvenience you have experienced, I am offering you any one of the following three options in restitution..

    1. We can exchange your gloves for a new pair of the same kind.

    2. We can accept your gloves back and issue a full refund of the purchase price.

    3. If you wish to wait until early September, we can exchange your gloves for the upgraded ones that we will be selling in the upcoming season. (If you choose this option, we would like to receive your new review.)

    Please indicate your preference by return email.

    Regards,

  6. Hi

    Just purchased a pair of heated gloves I am trying to find the best way to put the gloves on .The solution i have come to is to switch on the heat,fasten the glove then put the glove on as i find the amount of material in the cuff is exsessive and awkward to fasten tightly.The way i want to wear the glove is with my sleeve over the glove so that the rain dose not run in the glove.Less material would be better with longer thinner inner cuff with the battery holder on that to make it less bulky.
    Thanks Keith

  7. If you suffer from Renaurds syndrome as I do, don’t bother with these gloves.
    First thing is they only heat the fingers and not the thumb.
    Second thing is they heat the back of the fingers and not the fleshy part underneath which is were you want the heat if you suffer from Renaurds.
    Third, when I use the word “heat” I use it loosely, they only work with batteries in absolute peak condition, if the batteries are only slightly down you wont feel the heat, and with rechargeable batteries they are worse still.
    So dont waste £35 as I did

  8. I am still looking for a suitable glove, unfortunately the only ones that seem to be any good are for motorbikes that plug into the bikes battery system. But these are to big and clumsy for driveing a car. There is a battery powered glove insert available that you can use in any glove but its only on sale in america, I intend to look into this the next time I am over there.
    Regards Howard

  9. I bought the Vaso glove last year. They worked great for about an hour then they lost heat. They sent me new batteries but the same thing kept happeing. I too have Raynauds and I am still looking for something but all reviews of other gloves seem to be from a year ago. Nothing recent.

  10. Have been looking at these myself:

    http://www.exo2.co.uk/exo2.html#lglove

    But the price has put me off trying them, it’s a big investment if they turn out to be crap. The marketing blurb makes them sound great… but doesn’t it always? Anyone have any experience/know anyone who has them and can share a review?

  11. I bought these gloves last year. They were barely even warm – I contacted Blazewear USA and they recommended first that I upgrade the battery, but the output of my batteries was 2000mAH which is quite good. Anyhow, eventually in the email exchange they mentioned that in fact the gloves are not supposed to get warm and that I misunderstand how they operate. Funny… I misunderstood and thought they were heated gloves… crazy me! This year, I’m stuffing chemical hand warmers in the glove!

  12. I use these gloves while commuting on my motorcycle on cold days. These gloves keep my hands and fingers warm when nothing else would! I’ve not had the same problems as some of the above reviews and would buy this product again because I hate freezing fingers!

    Thanks,
    Ben
