Fingerless heated gloves often work best, as they aren't as restrictive. If you're after a more lo-fi option, some gloves have a pocket for heat warmers.

These disposable packets contain a mix of iron, water, activated carbon, vermiculite, cellulose, and salt, which release heat when exposed to the air. They're a good alternative if you don't want to plug in, but aren't rechargeable.
