Users comments
User works outdoors on his farm year-round. He has no sensation in his hands and is sensitive to cold. He recommends Minitech heated gloves. They are flexible and do not impede finger mobility. They only heat the back of his hands, but still keep the entire hand warm.

It is a bit difficult for the user to put on the gloves, especially to insert the plug between the gloves and batteries and he can barely manage the task.

One disadvantage is that the batteries only last about 2 hours, and then need to be recharged again. He needs an extra set of batteries.
