"Nanotech Gloves Heat Hands to Ideal Temperature"
"I was fortunate enough to discover the Chaval response-XRT gloves while researching heated gloves for Reynauds. I spend many hours outdoors and enjoy skiing, snowshoeing and winter hiking in New Hampshire oftentimes in temperatures in the low single digits. I also volunteer as a USSA (United States Ski and Snowboard Association) physician, and will spend full days outdoors at events covering these remarkable athletes. I can honestly say that these gloves are the most effective and most comfortable I have ever owned. I highly recommend these gloves for anyone with circulatory concerns or those who just hate having cold hands!"
Joshua A. Siegel, MD, Exeter, NH
"I've had 3-4 pairs of heated gloves over the years none of which were anywhere near the quality of your product."

"I really like these gloves. They feel good and look good. I use them for both skiing and motorcycling."
Director and Creator, Diamond Sessions, Ski & Snowboard Schools of Aspen; Examiner for Professional Ski Instructors of America, Rocky Mountain Division; Former member PSIA Alpine Demonstration Team
From PSIA Level III Ski Instructors in Aspen CO:
"Your heating system works quite nicely. I could dress lighter on my upper body than I typically would and not worry about cold hands. And when my hands did get cold I simply turned the heat on."
"And when clients appeared to have or complained of cold hands I would swap gloves with them, and they would be more relaxed, comfortable and happy."
"I got to try them on four very cold days and they worked very very well. I give them to my clients when they are freezing."
"I think you have an outstanding product and I'm honored to be testing it!"
"The gloves look good and are easy to wear."
"Today was COLD!!! I was a VERY thankful girl that my Chaval gloves were in my pack once the sun went down in the mountains above Salen, Sweden. I rode home in cushy warmth and was SOOOO very thankful!"
-Emilie "Skadi" Moreshead
Pro Backcountry Snowmobile Freerider, 2012 Women’s International Freeride Tour in Sweden
"This level of performance is honestly something I wasn’t expecting... On the most brutally cold day so far this winter, they were amazing... this has been a gamechanger."
-Sidecut (read the review!)
"...in the past few years my husband has developed Reynaud's in his fingers ... there is no way he would have been able to withstand the cold if he had not had the Chaval gloves on during those ski days. The gloves allowed him a full day of skiing with his family that would have been impossible for him without them."
-Elizabeth Atalay (ski trip report, 0 to -20 deg F, Stowe VT)
"My palms never got sweaty or too hot; they were, in fact, very comfortable… overall, I give these gloves very high marks. I loved them. And for people with poor circulation and/or Raynaud’s disease, they would be a perfect holiday gift."
-Marc Hemmes, Skier and blogger
"In northern Canada, the weather can get really nasty. I wore my Response XRTs in -15 deg F and 40 km/h conditions and found the comfort level to be perfect. They kept my hands toasty warm without getting uncomfortable or sweaty."
-James M., Constable, Royal Canadian Mounted Police
"All in all these are without a doubt the best electric gloves on the market in terms of heat, battery life, and quality."
-Dr. Eric Nelson, South Carolina
"I got these gloves for my wife who has suffered with cold hands for years despite the best gloves available. We just got back from a ski trip to Vermont where it was well below zero every morning and during some of the days as well. These gloves have changed our lives. My wife no longer needs to take frequent breaks to warm up. She is thrilled with her new gloves!"
-Michael Marston, New York
