MCNs Sports Editor, Michael Guy has been testing these Five HG1 Waterproof Heated Gloves for 18 months now and has worn them for 7000 miles. Here’s what he thinks…
What’s good? When I first started using heated gloves five years ago I expected my hands to be toasty whatever the conditions, but from my experience, that is not always the case. Rather than having hot hands, I’ve found that heated gloves in fact just prevent them from getting overly cold.
However, these Five gloves are the best heated gloves I’ve used. They are well made, comfortable, fully waterproof and easy to operate with a single button – enabling you to select any one of three heat settings. On the highest heat setting, they last just long enough to complete my 2.5-hour daily commute.
What’s not? They could be warmer and the charger is annoying, as it only comes with a two-pin plug which means you need to use a convertor to fit the UK power supply.
