Re: Gloves for heated grips.

Hi Dick,

I have not used those gloves.

I have used some Armored Icon gloves and Lined Winter Armored Icon Gloves. They happened to be on sale as well.

Anyway, I recently went down on the low side and wore my armor down on my gloves. Maybe 1/4" of the plastic worn flat.

From my experience (at least recent), I would suggest looking for something with more protection.

Heck at that price how can you lose? I run the summer air flows until it gets down to 25 degrees (with the grip heaters blazing of course).

Re: Gloves for heated grips.

Depending on how bulky they are, you won't feel the heaters through the gloves. Thats my problem with my winter gloves. I think I'm going to get the Ultimate gloves and the lower voltage liner from 12voltclothing soon.

Severall years ago, Bruce Coleman found some gloves that were made expecially for use with heated grips. They had good protection on the top side, and a thinner palm area for being able to pass the heat from heated grips. I've been looking for 'em for the last month or so - no joy. They aren't being made any longer. Were being sold by Hot Grips, who ran out of his inventory and no more to sell.

These from leatherup are for sure not as protective as many gloves are, butt shouldn't be much worse than the three or four pairs of gloves in my current inventory. Any warm glove I have now, or have had in the past, has been uncomfortably bulky; doesn't pass heat well from heated grips; and the pre-curved ones put my hands/fingers in a cramp after a bit. I'm gonna try a pair of the leatherups and see if they do actually allow heat transfer. Thought maybe someone here already had experience with 'em.

I bet Denise at LoneStar can fix you up. I bought my last pair like that there.

Uh, they weren't 14 bones, though.

Re: Gloves for heated grips.

I recently ordered a pair of motorcycle "shoes" from them. Shipping was fast enough. Price was great. The quality seemed OK and seemed to definately be worth the cost. But they were way too small and I had to send them back for exchange. The return was easy enough and hassle free but it took forever for them to acknowledge they got them back (nearly a week and a half from when UPS says they got there).

If the size is right, the quality will probably be higher than you paid for and they will arrive quickly. I didn't see any comments about them being small like with my boots, and I did order a size larger than I wear.

Hey, Chris - thanks for the input. You know what - it sure seems like some companies 'get it' when it comes to customer service and some don't. I tend to think more-n-more of 'em are comin' around to realize they have competitors out there and one *easy* way to shine and garner repeat bidness and good spread of the word is in customer service - hell, it's free!!

Glad your experience for the most part wuz a good'n.

Dang me, dang me. I bought a pair of lined chaps from Denise awhile back and stuffed 'em in a Container Store plastic .... uhh... container! and parked 'em down in my storage unit. I honestly meant to go git 'em this afternoon for tamale's way early ride to the *$$ gig we do. Gonna be at or below freezing on the ride!! They're gonna be too stiff to wear if I drop by and pick 'em up in the morning. Dang me!

Your post, Ray, just reminded me that CRS is still alive and well here!!

Re: Gloves for heated grips.

Like I said earlier my boots (shoes) from Leatherup didn't fit and had to be exchanged. My first option was an exchange for a larger size. Second option was a refund if out of stock. The other day I got an email from them that the size was out of stock and they would be refunding the amount to my credit card and it would take 3-4 business days. Yesterday (the next day) the credit was posted. Good prices, decent quality and good customer service!

Thumbs up Leatherup discount code!

I wish I had found this before some people placed orders from Leatherup.

I have a discount code for 10% on orders. The code is 55632 for unlimited use too! It doesn't appear to be customer specific either.

Use and enjoy.

Thanks for sharing the code, Chris. Good on ya. I won't use it, cuz these gloves are pretty inexpensive - and hopefully, someone else can take advantage of it, if ordering some bigger ticket items.

Have great Holiday season, Chris.

Re: Gloves for heated grips.

In my experience, the heated grips put out plenty of heat for cooler gloves to be used. I have armored gloves that are supposed to be good in the hot weather (specifically these), but I haven't really tested that yet. But in 40F, they worked fine. Heated grips did the rest, sometimes on setting 1, sometimes on 2. If the breathe, they probably let the heat through fine.

In case that wasn't enough, I also got some waterproof liners to wear inside, but haven't had the need to try them. I think that's the way to go, though, rather than bulkier, warmer gloves that may negate the effectiveness of the heated grips. Just MHO.

Re: Gloves for heated grips.

I actually have a pair of these. Not bad for the money.Never tried the rain cover but it is there if you need it. That being said, I do not wear them anymore. Changed to Columbia Titanium gloves. Lack protection of true cycle gloves but they are by far the warmest gloves I have ever owned. Great heat transfer from the grips. Ridden down to 20 degrees and hands were toastie (grips on low). Hard to believe for as thin as they seem (for winter gloves).
