The Warming Store's Heated Glove Guide
Here at The Warming Store, the question of which heated gloves the staff wears is asked often. Our response? It depends on what we are doing, so we've compiled an easy guide to our heated glove selection for our customers. We know it can be daunting to choose between all of the available heated gloves, so we've simplified the decision for you! We’ll sort through gloves, mittens, glove liners, and 12V motorcycle gloves.
The Basics: We sell heated gloves and mittens varying in price, quality, and features. Higher-end gloves will heat the fingers and thumb, lower-end gloves will have a panel that heats the palm or back of the hand. What glove is right for you depends on your wants, needs, and budget. Looking for motorcycle-specific gear? We’ve got you covered with that as well!

Glove liners are a personal favorite by many of the staff at The Warming Store. They are exactly as the name suggests: a slim-fitting heated glove made to fit inside of an existing glove or mitten. If you work outdoors and need warm hands, glove liners are a must-have. Without a glove over the glove liner, the liner will still heat but won’t hold the heat. Glove liners provide the right mix of functionality and dexterity.
- ActionHeat Glove Liners – These liners are the perfect combination of thin material with the right amount of heat. Like other ActionHeat products, they use a rechargeable 5 Volt USB battery. The heating elements run along the fingers and thumbs for even warmth. Available in Men's and Women's sizes.
- Mobile Warming 7.4V Glove Liners – Mobile Warming has continually set the standard in heated gear. These liners are a bit thicker than other glove liners, but they get HOT. They also feature Mobile Warming’s balanced split cell battery. Mobile Warming also makes a liner and work glove combination which is perfect for those in the trades who must work outside or those who choose to work hard despite the cold. Check them out!
- FNDN 3.7V Liner Gloves With Mittens – These are the thinnest liners on the market. If you suffer from Raynaud’s, you’ll appreciate how close the heat is to your digits. FNDN combined their Skin Fit Glove Liners with a built-in mitt that easily slips on to trap the heat or pulls off when you need to use the fingers. Brilliant!.
Mittens are the warmest option available when choosing how to heat your hands. Mittens may stir up memories of being bundled up like the little brother in “A Christmas Story”. Heated mittens, however, offer huge benefits on the frozen tundra, on the trails or on the slopes. Below are our favorites. Click on the links to learn more!
