i'd like them better if you could plug em into a cigar lighter fitting to recharge them. apparently the batteries only last 45 minutes!

i was out yesterday and for me it was bloody cold but my hands wern't so much a problem as my head. dont know what other people here wear but often hats i find are not warm and dry enough or itch like hell

was in by maplins today ....they also do heated body warmers, hats and gloves .......according to the young guy in maplins you turn them on for a minute or 2 to get warmth into them ...then turn off again ....rechargeable batts are one solution ....wont know till i try em

ended up with a body warmer for the mrs and gloves for me .....but she's took them away for wrapping ....the sad mare.

The mrs has just got a full set of the chillout gear though is yet to try it.
Saying that, a mate works for Oxford Products and he's very impressed with the gear. He's normally quite vocal if it's crap...

Will do.

We both ride in the winter but she feels the cold a lot more than me. If she likes it, it'll be very good.
