Are £50 heated gloves worth the money?

I want to get heated gloves, the prices massively vary but seen a good pair online for £50. Is it worth it? I'm sick of having cold hands!

What's wrong with gloves over the radiator before you put them on?

Pinkyandthebrainz · 10/01/2021 11:04

Ugg gloves are incredible. Had them for 10 years still in great nick and wash well.

Soutiner · 10/01/2021 11:04

I wear mittens rather than gloves as they keep my hands much warmer. I am out every day walking/hiking with my dogs and my hands must be warm.

LubaLuca · 10/01/2021 11:08

I'd say probably not worth the money.

Last year I bought a pair of suede gloves with cashmere lining from TKMaxx for less than £20, and they are the warmest gloves I've had by far.

Because they only have about 4 seconds of warmth in them. Heated gloves I'd have heated when I'm walking outside

As someone with probable Reynaud's syndrome (I've never been diagnosed but my mother was and I have exactly the same symptoms), I would say possibly.

If you can get gloves with elements that extend down the fingers, they are definitely worth paying for. If the gloves just heat the back of the hands then a cheaper option will be as good.

No. More money than sense springs to mind.

User478 · 10/01/2021 11:17

Could you get 2 rechargeable hand warmers instead? Cheaper and you can wash your gloves.

If there are ones with heated fingers link then here! After walking yesterday my fingers hurt all day from the cold!

NoddyHoldersCrazee · 10/01/2021 11:36

I got some £80 down from £100 in the Amazon Black Friday sale and I think they’re great!

How rude.
For all you know £50 could be pocket change for the OP. What people choose to spend their hard earned on is their business and just because you wouldn't spend £50 on a pair of gloves does not make her 'senseless'.
CottonSock · 10/01/2021 11:54

I'm interested too. Get very cold and it's miserable

TheNestedIf · 10/01/2021 11:55

The ones with heated fingers that I bought were a previous generation of these. Expensive but worth every penny. I managed 6 hours outdoors during The Beast From The East in the ones i have. With my useless circulation, I struggle to unlock my door in normal gloves when the temperature is 1C.

I also thought the comment from @chairthistle was very rude. I can easily afford £50, I'd spend it on other items of clothing I'd use far less. I guess a case of being able to be rude as you want when you have a screen to protect you!

@TheNestedIf thank you so much they look fantastic!

As someone who suffers with joint problems, especially in my fingers, I'd happily pay £50 for a pair of gloves that eased this.
The motorbike ones are a bit bulky for me though, do they do them any more fitted at all?

Redannie118 · 10/01/2021 12:38

I have severe Raynauds and sadly cannot afford 50 for heated gloves, but i do wear thin gloves with silver thread( about 8 pounds from Amazon) under sheepskin mittens. This works a treat. My Rhuemy told me any kind of thin glove under mittens is a game changer.

More money than sense does not make one senseless, it just means that they have more of one than the other.

lljkk · 10/01/2021 12:44

I'm tempted.
My current best set up is silk liners (full finger) under fingerless mitts under fleecy full size thick gloves. This works ok to stop painful hands (cycling) down to about -2 and only for about 75 minutes.

lljkk · 10/01/2021 12:45

oh... and wrist warmers with that set up, too.

I can't find easy to use booties so my feet just come back as frozen blocks of ice.

Setal · 10/01/2021 12:46

OP surely if you live in England it’s not cold enough for that?!

They sound fun though so I would probably buy them.

BertieBotts · 10/01/2021 12:55

Go to Decathlon and look at their skiing stuff, it's really warm. They also have mini hand warmers you can put inside pockets or gloves.

It doesn't have to be cold for one to need heated gloves. Raynauds as several people have pointed out on this thread, plus a plethora of other joint issues will make them extremely useful.

Its rather unfortunate that you seem to have a lack of manners and understanding, and no amount of money, senseless or otherwise can buy you those.

Tell my sister that...


She ha spoor circulation, possible Reynauds, about 2% body fat and her hands are f'ing freezing most of the time. Her hands bier they're so cold
Now she has rechargeable heated gloves (the battery pack is removable,so gloves can be washed) and they make dog walking/bike rides bearable now. She will be wearing gloves, coat, hat etc even when others are just in a light jacket.

Her hands hurt they're so cold*

Well obviously I don't think it's senseless to spend £50 on something I really need and would use daily in winter, for years. No different than getting a coat.
