I'm sure flyover is vastly more qualified to advise people on this topic than I am.

I think the boot glove is an application of his layering principle. For proper bootfitting it's not possible to add extra layers inside. So the boot glove adds a layer outside plus provides a insulation barrier when boots are in/under the snow.

I've had a number of issues with them over the years, and now one of the rechargeable batteries has died and is outrageously expensive to replace, so I won't be doing that. Even though these were never quite satisfactory, I would try another brand of heated glove if I could get a good recommendation from a user. Has anyone had a good experience?

Yeah, I think that has been an issue with battery operated ski gloves. I've got mine here http://www.oxfordgloves.co.uk hoping this might help.

Thanks, Bryan. I looked at the Oxford Gloves website and the price is certainly right for their heated gloves, but they give absolutely no information about them other than that you get 4 hours per charge. And they're currently out of stock. How long have you had yours? Do you use them skiing, and have they performed well?

I have Reynaud's [circulation issues] and the best antidote for me has been a pair of RBH Designs vapor-barrier mittens and their vapor-barrier socks. They are made in W. Hartford CT and the craftsmanship was A-1. So nice to have warm hands again, will try the Boot Gloves again that Tony C. mentioned - already have a pair, they help, sometimes a tad inconvenient when one needs to unbuck.le. Vapor-barrier liners also have worked well for my sleeping bag in 0F snowcamps.

Stephenson's warmlite.com in NH makes v-b glove liners and v-b shirts that work great, RBHdesigns.com also make many v-b clothing items.

Now if someone can just make a pair of V-b booties for under my wetsuit so I don't have to walk on frozen feet over sharp rocks in 58F water.
