If you’re in the northern hemisphere, you know it’s coming (if it’s not already here): Winter. Cold. Snow. Shivering. Ick! I’m sure we all know by now to layer our clothes, and to make sure the inner layers are moisture wicking, and all that. But if you’re going to be out for a long time, it doesn’t seem to matter how good your shoes/boots and gloves/mittens are, you’re going to get cold. And cold can lead to frostbite if you’re not careful.

Hammacher Schlemmer aims to ease the pain for both your hands and feet with some pretty darn nifty gadgets this winter, although neither of them come cheap. Their Heated Glove Liners can be worn inside your regular gloves or even just on their own, and the really great thing about them is the heating elements are positioned on the top of each finger rather than just in the palm. On their lowest setting they will keep your hands warm for about six hours, or on their highest setting for about two. Each cuff has a push button control so you can decide how much heat you need, with their lithium-ion batteries zipping into a compartment on the underside of each cuff. They come with an AC adapter, and it takes about two hours for the gloves to fully charge.

Each pair of Heated Glove Liners costs $169.95 US (see what I meant about not being cheap?), but if you spend any length of time outside they’re most likely worth it.

heated insoles

Moving on to your feet, Hammacher also offers RC Heated Insoles to keep your tootsies toasty warm. Unlike other heated insoles, these are run with a remote rather than having a button on each one, and the remote comes with a lanyard so you won’t lose it. The insoles themselves are water-resistant, and can be trimmed to fit your needs without worrying about cutting into their heating elements. Their lithium-ion batteries charge in about four hours with the included AC adapter, and each one will keep your feet warm for about five hours on a charge.

Each pair of RC Heated Insoles costs $129.95 US, but again… if you spend any amount of time outside in winter, they’re not a bad investment.
