Rated 5 out of 5 by BCteach from Easy Control and Warm! I am a ski instructor and spend all day on the mountain, these gloves make the experience that much better with easy, three temperature controls, they are durable and well constructed, and have great style. Highly recommend for the daily skier or weekend warrior, stay warm out there!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Biko from High quality gloves, but....they have their limits After using the gloves for a season I learned some things. The gloves are very well made and without batteries turned on are fairly warm - I am comfortable down to about 25 degrees Fahrenheit (I am 71 and my circulation is not what it used to be). I am a ski instructor and have to be out all day. The days that had a low of about 5 to 8 degrees with a high in the teens and not much wind only required the medium to low setting and one set of batteries lasted all day. At those settings, my fingers didn't feel warm - which I don't want - the just didn't feel cold or felt slightly cold. All it takes is the temps to drop about 5 degrees and the winds to pick up for me to need two sets of batteries (which I have) to last all day. The caution I would give is that when the temps stay near zero or below and the winds are 30 - 50 mph, I will not use these gloves. I tried them on a very cold and windy day and the batteries turned on high did not come close to lasting 2 hours. They quit when I started a lift ride and by the time I got to the top on a high speed quad my fingers were really cold. Luckily I was able to go in to the lift shack to change batteries. If I hadn't been able to find cover, changing batteries out in the open in those conditions could have resulted in frostbite. They are very good gloves but they have their limits.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mark from Solano not, but Cold as Ice These are not good gloves, battery or not. I’ve endured about 60 days in these gloves and they are only reasonably warm north of 30 Fahrenheit, also the moisture buildup makes it colder and clammy. The quality and construction are low standard as well, the pretty yellow stichings on palm/thumb are popping at the seams already. Another worthless and expensive outdoor equipment. Bad BD, no donuts for cold-as-ice Solano.

Rated 2 out of 5 by raztec from Well built but not warm I bought these gloves because I have Reynaud's, a circulation problem in the extremities, and am not too impressed. Other than the build quality, which is exceptional, the gloves just aren't warm enough. Except perhaps at the highest setting, but that only lasts about 1.5 hours in the cold so it's of limited use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Michael from Good quality gloves for active ski patrol work Purchased to support a circulation issue and they seem to do the trick! Waiting for the extra batteries to become available or the would be a 5 star!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marc from Very Warm and Comfortable My wife may not have been diagnosed with Raynaud's but it wouldn't surprise me if she has it. We recently purchased the newer generation of the Solano glove and it is much improved. We like the lithium ion battery and the easier to use temperature control tab on the glove. The battery life isn't as good as advertised (about 65-70% of what is suggested depending on the temperature) but it can be moderated by turning the gloves off occasionally. It would be great if additional batteries could be purchased. Overall, very warm glove that allows us to enjoy more of the cold and fun outdoors. I liked them enough i purchased a pair for myself as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EagleSkier from Best in the market This is absolutely the best heated glove. Temp setting is easy to pick. The heat lasts a good amount of time depending on the setting chosen. The fit tends to run slightly bigger than expected size. The company is absolutely the best and stands behind their product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by James from 2nd Generation Solanos Are the ticket To warm and comfortable hands and fingers. The First generation Solanos kind of reminded me of 60s era transistor radios....flimsy cables and connections wore out soon and just kind of died. These new ones have beefy yet unnoticeable connections and stay warm. The leather is supple and dexterity is improved greatly. Sure pricey, but quality and comfort doesn't cost that much more. BD has taken a good glove and made it a fantastic glove.
