Wrong time of year for these Astars Drystars

but I thought I would pass this along. The previous winter I was using some oversize Racer gloves with heated Gerbings liners. They got warm for sure, but were bulky as hell and sweaty if the temp rose above the point where I needed the heat. I spent several months trying to find a pair of these heated Astars Drystar gloves last winter and was very glad that I finally found some. I cannot speak to their waterproof abilities, but they are amazingly comfortable, fit true to size (I bought a medium, palm is 8.25" around) and seem to heat the right amount in the right places. When it's too warm for the heat feature and too cold for my regular gloves they also do a great job of keeping my hands warm unplugged, in that PNW 40-50F gray winter malaise weather. Riding to work on Monday in the 55F morning chill I wished I had them on instead of my GP Pros.

These have been out of production for a season or two. Since I surf the bay for deals on gloves and leathers every day I thought I would share a rare opportunity to get some for a good price. If any brief interaction occurred in passing with this ebay seller, I do not remember it. My recollection is that they listed at around $140, but things were moving so fast that I did not take notes.
