BBB Aquashield winter gloves review£29.95

The BBB gloves are some of the cheapest here but it doesn't show in their performance. The mid-weight insulation allows your fingers to be mobile enough for reasonable control and a waterproof liner stops the wet before you lose too much heat.

The BBB gloves are some of the cheapest around but it doesn't show in their performance. The mid-weight insulation allows your fingers to be mobile enough for reasonable control and a waterproof liner stops the wet before you lose too much heat. Long thermal cuffs seal the wrists well and cosiness is consistent throughout the gloves once you've warmed up. They're certainly comfortable well below the frost/frozen peas mark.

The grippy palms are fully reinforced, they provide ample control and a gel pad in the heel of each glove adds some long ride/crash comfort, and they're Gripshift reinforced too. Factor in the low price and you've got some excellent full winter gloves.

Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
