I have to mention these to everyone. I was so impressed with their performance I just can't say enough about them. I have been searching for something I could use to keep my hands warm without have to take out a 2nd mortgage. I found these on Amazon for $18 and some change.
Amazon.com: SuperBike Motorcycle Handle Bar Mitts Muffs Gloves Hand Warmer: Toys & Games

They look weird but work VERY WELL!!!! I have a roughly 45 minute commute to work and in 27 degree weather I was wearing summer gloves and almost needed to take them off. These are much cheaper then heated gloves, and they slip on and off pretty easy.

i like those. i had been looking at some half mitten type gloves (3 compartments, thumb and fingers paired up in the other two. think spock gloves), but i've only seen them on ebay in england, and they were a lot more. i may try some of these.

edit: ordered a pair. we'll see how they do.

I had similar handlebar warmers on snowmobiles better than 20 years ago & they made a big difference over just wearing gloves alone.

Yes, but how easy is it to get your hand back in after waving at peeps on mopeds and HD riders and at people in jeeps and guys on black bikes and guys running darkside and ......
Just had to go there! Glad your hands are warm, but seriously, if you have to remove your hand how awkward is it to put it back in while in motion? I'm thinking face shield adjustment or glasses, you know something that may very well come up? Not trying to start anything, just curious. I am cold natured and like warm ideas!!!!-

It definitely is something you have to get used to. You have to put your hand in the mitt at the proper angle, It is a little awkward but not to the point of being a major distraction. They are stiff enough to hold their shape. I will say that it is enough awkwardness for me to not remove my hands unless it is important.

The wife saw those and fell in love. I told her I'd buy her a pair when we move to Arkansas. We don't need those in Texas.
(I'll probably end up buying her a pair right now.)

Cool! ...As much as they look like they'll keep my hands nice-n-toasty, I'll just need another pair for my feet and I'll be golden :mrgreen:

I got a pair of heavy winter gloves at the motorcycle show in DC. Paid about $25 (I think). You don't need a second mortgage if you shop around.

But....if you are used to those mitts and like them...good for you that you found something like that.
