These are pretty inexpensive and I'm sure there are better ones.

This will be the forth winter I'v had them on my ATV. I had a set on my Honda and a Polaris too so these are my third set. I also got the thumb warmer but it doesn't seem to work all that well. I am thinking about buying another one and locating it a little bit different.

80% of the time they are on the lowest setting and I wear summer motorcycle gloves in the winter too. I also have hand guards that are attached with Velcro that do an excellent job too.

I never had heated grips but my thumb warmers all had high and low settings, and low would be too hot if you didn't have gloves on. They had a self adhesive heating element that I put right where my thumb goes with shrink tubing over top of it. High felt really good through thick gloves at first, then it would get too hot and low felt good for a long time after that. When I had good snowmobile gloves on my hands didn't get cold, but holding the throttle all day cut the blood flow so much my thumb would freeze. I would suggest you also get a thumb warmer when you get the heated grips.

From what I'v read over the years Heat Demons are probably the best. Sometimes I just need cheap.

I think it was a POS brand.

I ruined my KFI and I'm now working on ruining my Warn.

I ruined two cheap ones on my Rubicon.
