Lenz Heated Gloves are some of the best I've reviewed. Let me show you how these compare to other leading heated gloves for men and women.
Lenz now has a small line up of heated gloves and mittens so in this review I'm going to discuss all of them so that you can decide for yourself which is best for you.
Here are the different gloves they currently make and sell.......
The most common and well known gloves in the Lenz lineup is the Heat 2.0 so that's what I'll be discussing first.
If you're more interested in one of the other options please click the appropriate link above to jump to that glove.
The Heat 2.0 makes both a Men's and a Women's model and they're basically the same glove other than the sizing and fit. Let's get started.
Lenz Heat 2.0 Heated Gloves Overview
As I said before these are some of the best heated gloves on the market.
The Heat 2.0 gloves are an all purpose winter glove but they're made with skiing and snowboarding in mind so you can be sure these would be an excellent glove for hitting the slopes.
Since these gloves are German made you can be sure that the engineering and craftsmanship of them is top notch.
Comfort & Warmth
These gloves are made out of polyester, polyurethane and goat leather with the majority of the palm being goat leather.
The leather palm provides excellent grip and water resistance but the benefit I love most about it is the comfort.
As you wear these gloves the leather will form to the shape of your hand and become more and more comfortable the longer you own them.
The interior of the gloves is made with a really soft polyester which is both warm and cozy but also comfy on the skin.
How warm are they??? Really warm. They are insulated with a synthetic Dexfill insulation but it's not bulky or loose feeling.
They feel really low profile and they can get away with it because they have the electric heat so they don't need to bulk up on insulation.
Basically they use just enough insulation to retain the electric heat so they can be both warm and dexterous which you won't find with a non-heated glove.
There are three heat settings and the highest setting is crazy warm.
The heat runs along the back of the hand and all five fingers right to the tips.
For Comfort I'm giving them a 19/20 and for Warmth I'm also giving them a 19/20.
These gloves are completely waterproof and I put them through the bucket challenge so I know they will keep your hands dry under pretty much any conditions.
They use a Dry Tec membrane in between the shell and the lining and in addition to being wind and waterproof it's also breathable for optimum comfort.
I actually think that this Dry Tec membrane is just as good as Gore-Tex and maybe even better because it's not as stiff feeling as Gore-Tex.
For this category I'm giving them a 20/20.
When I rate the quality of gloves I look at things like the materials used, the tension of the stitching, the electric components and I inspect all parts like buckles, buttons and zippers.
These Lenz heated gloves excelled in all of these areas which isn't a surprise considering how much I also loved the Lenz heated socks.
Lenz has been making gear for over a decade now and they have an amazing reputation for quality and durability.
These gloves were right on par with that so I'm giving them a 19/20 in this category.
The battery life is probably the number one thing people complain about after using heated gloves.
The issue is that so many people go out and buy really cheap heated gloves and then they're surprised when the battery dies in 2 hours.
These gloves come with two batteries and a usb charger so that you can charge them in a wall outlet or a computer with ease.
If the batteries are completely dead it will take about 5 hours to fully charge them up.
On the lowest heat setting you should be able to get 10 hours of heat and on the highest setting you should get close to 5 hours which is very good.
This is right up there with the other top brands in the heated gloves industry so for that reason I'm giving them a 19/20 in this category.
So based on the fact that these gloves scored a 96/100 you can probably tell that I really like them.
Now Lenz has actually come out with two other pairs of heated gloves.
Lenz Heated Mitts 3.0 and Lenz Heat Gloves 3.0
Just when I thought the Heat 2.0 gloves were perfect I tried out the 3.0 versions and was shocked to see that they actually made them better.
They made three improvements on the 3.0 series.
- They added an adjustable cuff
- They added a drawstring to the gauntlet
- They added some color
So if those are things that you value then you might find that it's worth your money to spend the extra $20 on the 3.0 for those three features.
All in all you can't go wrong with any of these Lenz Heated Gloves or mitts. They are of the highest quality and in my opinion they're well worth the price.
Thanks for stopping by.
