Mechanix Wear: ColdWork M-Pact Heated Smart Glove

gloves

The Takeaway: Heated gloves are no longer a novelty. They’ve gone mainstream, and we’ve tested these heated Mechanix Wear ColdWork M-Pact gloves and can say that working outside or in uninsulated spaces in winter is a lot more enjoyable with them. Each one warms up with an electrical current provided by a small lithium-ion battery and heating circuit. They even have a thermostat that senses your hand temperature and controls output accordingly. This keeps your hands more comfortable, reduces sweatiness, and prolongs the battery charge.

  • Effective in cold-and-wet or cold-and-dry conditions
  • Thermostat senses your hand temperature and adjusts the heat output
  • Batteries can pop up for recharging, just like those on power tools

Feature:

Cold hands in the winter are more than uncomfortable. They can be downright dangerous, causing you to lose control of a saw, make a misplaced blow with a hammer, drop a heavy object, lose control of a piece of outdoor equipment like a snowblower, or slip off a wrench. These gloves solve the tough problem of keeping your hands warm without adding so much bulk that you lose dexterity.

Review

The bulk of your index finger can make for a close fit with some types of circular saws (particularly my old school worm gear model). A lot depends on how the handle and the trigger is designed; some power tools are not particularly good at leaving allowance for an operator wearing a glove. I could see where people who have large hands might need to give extra thought to the power tools they will be able to use wearing these. If your hand makes a close fit without a glove, then there’s no way it will fit wearing these, which increases your finger diameter by a half inch or so.
