Tested to the limits!

Tested by our R&D team flying in the extreme cold of the Korean winter and developed specifically for paragliding, the GIN Alpine Heated gloves are durable, easy-to-use and simply get the job done.

Besides everything you would normally expect of a premium glove, our heated gloves offer the following unique benefits:

• durable thanks to the proven heating filament design

• paragliding specific finger heating and fit

• convenient to use in the air due to easy heating controls and retaining straps

A lifetime of performance

The most fragile part of any heated glove is the heating filament, which must withstand continued bending and heating. The filament in the GIN heated gloves has been designed for extreme use and tested for over 200,000 bends and under continous heating and cooling. The result is a lifetime of reliable heating performance.

Paragliding-specific design and fit

This provides extra warmth where it’s most needed, resulting in a more efficient use of the battery.

The roll-tip fingers also provide added comfort and durability.

Designer notes

GIN designer Gin Seok Song explains the motivation behind the development of the GIN heated glove.

“Testing in Korea all year round means we sometimes have to fly and work in the extreme cold. We have always struggled to find heated gloves that are durable, easy to use and actually keep the hands warm. That’s why we decided to develop our own!

One of the critical parts of a heated glove is the heating filament. We chose a silicone-coated, stainless steel filament. This highly durable filament has been designed for extreme use and tested for over 200,000 bends.

We also focussed on the fingertips, extending the filament over the whole fingertip and folding the leather over the fingertips for increased comfort.

We couldn’t be happier with the end result and hope you will be too!”

Battery Life and Lifespan

All rechargeable batteries are consumables and have a limited lifespan – eventually their capacity and performance decline such that they need to be replaced. Battery aging can contribute to changes in glove performance.

‘Battery life’ is the amount of time a device runs before it needs to be recharged. ‘Battery lifespan’ is the amount of time a battery lasts until it needs to be replaced. One factor affecting battery life and lifespan is the mix of things you do with your battery. No matter how you use your device, there are ways to help. A battery’s lifespan is related to its ‘chemical age’, which is more than just the passage of time. It includes different factors, such as the number of charge cycles and how it was cared for. To maximise battery performance and help extend battery lifespan, keep your batteries half-charged when they are stored, especially over the summer whe not in use. Also avoid charging or leaving batterires in hot environments, including direct sun exposure, for extended periods of time.

    I absolutely love these, the build quality is spot on, they feel comfortable, the size guide was spot on for me. Thanks Gin, can’t wait to go flying with them.

    They are a Christmas gift, so not sure yet – I’m not the pilot but they look good to me.

    Ordering was quick and easy. Delivery great – quick and arrived when it should.

    Lovely smiley face and thank you message which is a nice touch when you make such a significant purchase.

    Fingers crossed this could be a 5 rating if Chris likes the gloves and is pleased with their quality and performance.
