I'm using Oxford Muffs right now with heated grips. I find them to be very restrictive for hand movement. They seem a little flat to me and I have difficulty with the turn signal switch. At least I can wear summer gloves underneath which affords me a little more sensitivity and flexibility. What dont you like about the backcountry hippo hands? I feel like they would work better, giving you much more space to work with. With insulated gloves and heated grips, im sure it would be an improvement.
