This is almost like an oil question!! Haahaa. I have both, but prefer the heated grips with good waterproof gloves. Even with my vented gloves the heated grips come in handy for those cool mornings. The gloves are very nice and heat all sides of your hands, but they are a hassle to hook up, v the grips, turn on.

I have heated grips on my BMW. Cooks my palms and freezes the back of my hand. Muffs for the win. I have put my muffs on my BMW wit the grips on low. Best of both worlds.

I am surprised that Hot Hands type chemical heat packs have not been mentioned. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Hot-Hands...hoCimQQAvD_BwE

Put them in your gloves, your boots, your jacket..... . They are less than 50 cents each and really do last 8 or 10 hours.

I travel a lot and have grip heaters and a home made electric vest, but they don't do it for my fingers and TOES. So, I keep some Hot Hands in my kit. One in each glove and sock is good for the whole day.

I have grip heaters on my "road toilet" and use them with gloves and sometimes with rain covers/mittens over the gloves.


PS The Hot Hands idea sounds intriguing; I'll give them a try this winter.
