Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Afordable heated gloves ?

My OH has had Reynaud's for years. She find Blazewear heated liners very satisfactory. Liners better than gloves as more flexible.

Liners would be nice but then I would need new gloves because my current glove has a non-removable liner so it may be a bit too tight unless the liner is really thin, is that the case ?

@AndreSilva, it is probs thin enough, not much thicker than silk liners. Importantly, heating elements all round fingers Happy

They are a great product (Miss Fartbagette, who has Reynauds, has them thanks to your recommendation) - but while they are not thick per se, they are considerably thicker than silk liners.

@AndreSilva, she has the older version, I think a bit thinner, but probably needs new ones for next season.

Does she use it under her regular gloves? Or does her gloves are just a shell for the heated liner?

She has Hestra Heli Mitts - and they just about fit under, with the lining left in. Ideally, she needs the size up. Nb. There is more room in Mitts, as there are no fingers to contend with.

I have Hestra Gloves and would need the size up to be comfortable.....but could use them with some Ami Chaud Mitts that I have.

I like the ones I got off of AliExpress that I mentioned in my previous comment, above. They’re now showing up on Amazon (US - maybe other countries as well). USD130 for the mitten version. Got 30 days in last season, and these mittens never let me down. I usually kept them on the low or medium setting; although the temps were pretty mild up at Lake Tahoe last season.

Two accessories I’d recommend, especially with these mittens:
1. Wool glove liners. I used SmartWool ones - very thin. Mainly as a wicking layer. The mittens have a synthetic fluffy lining that made my hand sweat. Adding the SmartWool liner worked perfectly. And I could leave the liner on and still use the touchscreen on my phone when needed.
2. Wrist sweatbands. I’ve been using terry cloth sweat bands on my wrists for years - keeps the blood warm as it goes past that gap between the jacket sleeve cuff and the glove.
