Our review

Well made, but not weatherproof enough for the worst conditions
Skip to view product specifications

These gloves are surprisingly warm for their low bulk and they offer reasonable wind-resistance too, although cold air can get in through the towelling thumb-back so they’re not suitable for the coldest weather.

They won’t keep rain out either, although the faux-leather and rubberised palms are tough and a small amount of gel padding on the heel of the hand adds comfort. 

You also get an internal pocket on the back of the hand that can hold a warmer – such as an iron powder pouch – to add extra heat. 

The section between your thumb and forefinger, where you rest on the hoods, is well reinforced while extensive reflective panels add a heap of visibility.

We found the elasticated wrist a little loose but the overall build quality is high.
