Those aren't actually that good-if you put it in a glove it'd die very fast as they don't like constantly changing shape.

If you want heated clothing try these guys:-

Sixy has a set of the heated insoles and thermal socks. She loves them.

the heated clothing seems good, i find a balaclava and helmet keep my head warm fine on the boat but once hands are cold, everything becomes difficult to do.

That's the main problem. I've got heavy ski gloves but still find the tips of my fingers start to go cold after a bit.
That site Nos linked looks good. In the long run 26 for a pair of heated gloves aint to bad!

Fair.

I did wonder if it was possible to fit a pair of heated bike grips to one of the grabrails so I could grab it every now and then. The heated grips get so hot you need to wear gloves and the gloves will be steaming after a few seconds if they are wet.

Bear in mind I don't know if those heated gloves would last more than 5 minutes given ribbing abuse.

I just found these with a google:-

http://www.heated-motorcycle-clothin...oveliners.html

They look like a better bet if you've got waterproof gloves?

yeah they do. The thing is about all this though is what if you end up in the water. You need clothing that is going to keep you as warm as possible un aided.
But at least with the ones in that last link they can be added to what ever you normally wear on your RIB.

maplins heated gloves

I use these on my pushbike down to minus 2 so far,ideal for that as although they dont develop great heat,they work with the heat i,m producing to keep my hands comfortable,had to restitch them a few times though,a bit flimsy.
Used the heated waistcoat on my motorbike,couldnt discern any real heat coming from it although it kept me warm,probably as its quite thick.

The waistcoat on that site looks identical to the maplins one ......except maplins one is only 20 (were 40 but 1/2 off now) ...the gloves look almost identical too ...worth the tenner imho

at the moment i manage with a set of industrial marigolds that the fisherman use (about 2 a pair) with some wooly gloves underneath. They work ok and are very dry, but after 2 hrs start to get cold. They are the best at being waterproof though in my experience.
