These winter gloves may raise a few eyebrows when you hit the trail – they certainly aren’t the norm. Well, unless you’re off surfing, that is.
They’re made from Neoprene, which consists of thousands of tiny air bubbles and creates an insulating barrier to retain body heat. Although this makes for a layer of protection against the elements, water seeps in through the seams and you feel the effect of that straight away.
Over a long period of time, wearing these is going to be a real love or hate affair. Our fingers felt like prime pork sausages and there’s a tendency for your hands to roll about inside the glove. On the plus side, the printed palm does offer up great grip.
