Columbia Sportswear battery heated gloves; especially what do extra batteries cost?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I was looking at the Columbia Sportswear heated glove and wondering what extra batteries cost.
I can get a deal on the gloves, but so what since the battery only lasts 2-3 hours. Most people ski all day.

I can't seem to google or find extra batteries or what they cost.

 

Guess I'll go with with $2.97 army wool glove liners :)

I don't feel that Hood gets cold enough for gimmicky stuff like that. Just get a quality waterproof breathable glove, and a decent liner. Wool army ones might be a bit overkill.

"Cold enough" is all relative. My sister has raynauds so 40 is cold enough for her to need her swany's w/ liners. When it gets down to 10 a heated glove would be great but like you said, 2-3 is pretty worthless and $400 for the glove itself is outrageous.

I could probably buy a lifetime supply of chemical hand warmers for $400.

Any mountain gets cold enough for my hands. It's just my hands and not someone elses'.

Columbia told me they don't make extra battery packs. Not going to buy the things.

I can get hand warmers pretty cheap and put one in thumb and one in the fingers.

May I suggest Marmot Randonee gloves. Even in the nastiest weather have i had an issue with warmth. Even after taking them off to take some pictures, and FREEZING my hands, putting the Randonees back on restored warmth in a few minutes.
