Default Heated clothing?

Hello everybody,

A friend of mine told me something about heated clothing, does anybody here has any expierience with that?
I am wondering if it is comfortable and easy to train with, he told me it is better to train with that, so I am asking for your opinion on all this.

Thanks in advance

Pointless in my opinion. It isn't hard to stay warm.

Agree with that one. Gets to -6C here, the only part of me that gets cold is my finger tips and toes.

Heated gloves please, Q.

It does, but I think I'd just switch to ski gloves and then go with those chemical warmers for the very coldest days. Here in Vancouver it doesn't get THAT cold, though. Those further east or north in Canada are better qualified to comment.

I have them..They have very even temperature aound the whole glove but still can have problems with fingertips on colder days..A great glove for warmth but not perfect.
