Reviews & Questions
Besides being stylish, these gloves are also very comfortable. Two heat setting buttons that are marked with + and – signs are on top of the gauntlet, in a suitable position for easy adjustments and clear visibility on the go. They require quite some pressure for an evident “click” so it is hard to be mistaken. Three separate LED lights indicate one of the three heat setting levels; low, medium and high. These LEDs are clearly visible day and night.
As for fitment; my daughter ordered 3XL for me, despite the fact that my hand circumference measures 24cm (9.5”) because I have long fingers. They fit me fine so they might be a tad tighter fit than the size chart suggests.
I used my gloves during a two day long trip. I kept my torso warm all the time. I mean; I had no notable reason to have cold hands. With my heated grips and heated gloves both OFF at 15?C (59?F), my hands were not cold at all. Below 10?C (50?F); I turned both ON at their lowest settings, but this was not really necessary. What was impressive for me was that my hands stayed uniformly (palms and backs) toasty for several hours at 5?C (41?F), with my heated grips always at low and alternating my Highway 21 Gloves between their lowest and medium settings. I mean, the medium setting was unnecessarily hot after a while. I do ride at sub-freezing temps provided that the road is dry but I cannot imagine myself riding at such a temperature that I will need my gloves at their highest setting while my heated grips are cranked all the way up because this scenario would almost certainly call for icy/snowy roads.
According to my measurements, the manufacturer is over-conservative with battery life claims. They last at least half an hour longer. Those who are interested in a semi-technical assessment can continue to read the reason why I think so but this may be boring for some. Other than that, I am very pleased with my Highway 21 Radiant gloves and I can recommend them to everyone but I deduct one star for the lack of status indicators for the batteries.
Speaking of which, it is surprising that the stock and spare batteries have identical specs and the exact same product identification code, WY165173, because the spare batteries are about 1.5mm thicker. This led me to test them for capacity. The thinner stock batteries delivered 2360 and 2361mAh* against the claimed 2200mAh. This is not unusual for batteries that have not been shelved for long. However, the thicker spare batteries set the bar as high as 25% more than the rated capacity: 2748 and 2765mAh*.
I also tested them for runtime. At the max heat setting; my left glove ran for 186 and 215 mins with stock and spare batteries, respectively, down to the widely accepted norm of 3.00V/cell.** In view of the manufacturer’s claim of 150 mins at max heat setting, these figures represent 24% and 43% longer runtime, respectively. Since the differences between claimed and measured capacities do not match the differences between claimed and measured runtimes, I suspect that the manufacturer’s runtime claims are based on higher power consumption than what the gloves actually consume. I didn’t go so far as to measure the current they draw because my actual runtime measurements are factual enough to base my battery swap timing on. However, I would like to know when the batteries are depleted without having to time my usage.
I sent an e-mail to Highway 21 to ask if there is a circuit breaker that turns the gloves OFF when the batteries are depleted down to their maximum allowable state of discharge. I got no reply. I am therefore timing my usage based on my above mentioned runtime measurements, in order to be certain that I do not deep-discharge my Lithium Polymer batteries as this could lead to catastrophic consequences. However, I do hope that there is a circuit breaker to prevent such consequences, even if the consumers are not informed about it. Without this hope (which should be rather realistic at this time and age) I would not recommend these gloves (and any unprotected Lithium Polymer battery powered device) to anyone.
* Discharge @.4A, after 60 mins rest time following full charge with OEM charger. Ideally, capacity measurements should be performed at 1/5 of the rated capacity which is .44A but my discharger can only be adjusted in 100mA increments.
** Under load, down to 3.00V/cell = 6.00V.
As someone said, the battery area can be tough but I was able to solve the problem by using the shorter side perpendicular to the arms. On short commutes I don't even use the battery and use my heated grips. They protect against wind well and allow the heat from my handgrips to conduct well. Very happy with the purchase.
I pondered this for a while, did a lot of research on cost vs ROI and decided to go with heated gloves. I then looked at tethered gloves vs battery powered. I was not a fan of being plugged into the bike so I then turned my research to battery powered gloves. There are quite a few options and after reading a lot of reviews, I decided to go with the Highway 21 Radiant Heat Gloves. They are not perfect, but I do really like them. Pros/Cons and photos below.
- Heats the fingers!! The ends of my fingers are the most susceptible and these do well in that area. These are fine for anything above freezing.
- Outstanding quality leather gloves - soft, shaped and are pre-broken in.
- Batteries last all day if you do some management - fire them up level 3 and then once warm, dial down to 2 or even 1 for maintenance.
- Can be used on all your bikes and even for hiking or walking in cold weather (my wife likes them just to warm her hands in front of the camp fire
- Awesome controller design - no problem to adjust while moving.
- The finger tips actually allow use of iPhone touch screen (nice feature)
- Nice case
- Batteries are finite - they need to be recharged every day you are on a trip. Forget and you go cold.
- Heats just the back of the hands/fingers to the tips - not a huge issue but it is an important consideration.
- Fit - They run big...I ordered XL based on the chart - had to return for L (super easy with Revzilla). They need to fit well in order to work efficiently.
- Getting the jacket sleeve ends under the rear collar of the gloves is tricky - wish they made more room - not a deal breaker.
- Hard to find spare batteries - still looking actually...may have to call the actual company.
- Batteries are a bit heavy, but I didn't notice it after a few applications.
- Cost ($180), but you get what you pay for so almost a Pro.
4 out of 5 stars - a keeper for me...

Warm gloves on setting 3 down to about 40 degrees before highway wind chill. Below that, the fingertips on my throttle hand would start to numb up (live in the Phoenix, AZ metro area so it doesn't get too much colder than about 30 degrees at worst).
Note, you will not be super warm at 20 degrees at highway speeds. Your hands will be chilled, but your hands are functional! That chill is nothing compared to terminal numbness that comes from gloves that are not heated at those temperatures. That's just painful.
I usually switch them on to heat up at the same time I start the motorcycle to let it warm up. That gives them time to get toasty and starting off that way really helps. I have not tried them in wet weather yet. But they block the wind really well.
I sized my hand according to the chart for an XL and they were a little big. Not a big deal, I really like these gloves a lot.
Battery life is decent, though I've noticed the edge on the 3rd setting (the warmest) to lack after about 2 hours. That's OK, a back up set of batteries is probably a good idea for longer days.
One tip: definitely unplug them from the battery when you're not using them. This could be anecdotal, but I found that even if I used them for a short period and left them plugged into the gloves, that the next time I used them they were not as warm. It's easy to do, I just have to remember.
Highly recommend these gloves!
