The Chipolatas prove that you don’t have to be ﬂash to be thoroughly practical. The ﬁt is fairly loose, good for trapping the warm air around your ﬁngers with their Windfoil ﬂeece construction.
The palms and ﬁngertips are reinforced in all the right places and the loosely elasticated cuffs are long enough to cover, or tuck in to, jacket sleeve ends.
They wash easily, dry quickly, they’re hard wearing and great value, they keep your hands toasty at a few degrees below zero plus they’re shower resistant. Unlike a lot of cycling gloves, they also double up as general wear and ski gloves.
