    Winter Glove recommendations

    As per the title, looking for a very good water repellent winter glove.

    Really needs excellent thermal properties as the ends of my fingers really suffer after while in a lot of gloves. Iíve got a pretty good wool, thermal glove for dry conditions, would really like some thoughts on a more water repellent version for wetter days.

    Have been looking briefly at Sealskinz and Montane. Donít want anything too bulky like a ski glove, something a bit more urban outdoors would be great.

    Thanks

    +1 for sealskins.

    Used in a number of cold climates over the years including Iceland in Feb 2019, -10įC at one point at night.

    Still going strong today making snowballs with the kids. Still dry and still warm.

    Sealskins are great, also have a look at Hestra. As well as the ski type gloves which I know youíre not after, they also have some great casual type gloves too.

    I couldn't remember so checked their website, they look like the uninsulated all weather type at £45: https://www.sealskinz.com/products/w...-weather-glove

    As you can see (along with gratuitous watch shot) they have aged well. A couple of years ago they went white with salt "rings" but again, that went after a few wears in the snow.

    I have Sealskins. They are waterproof but they don't breathe like other gloves. My Spyder gloves are warmer and better for general UK use.

    I don't find sealskinz cold weather gloves warm enough. Got some tog24 with heat pockets which are better.

    If your hands suffer that badly I'd recommend heated motorcycle gloves that just have a small battery integrated, hands warm as toast then.

    Timely question
    Been wearing Hestra for years, just bought another pair in the clearance from The sporting Lodge.
    Love these gloves

    Exactly my experience.

    I'd say you don't really need fully waterproof gloves for day-to-day stuff, my Spyder gloves have never let anything in but they're much warmer.

    To give an indication, I leant my Sealskins to someone who was travelling inside the Arctic Circle. I don't use them for daily stuff.

    Iíve got these montane gloves. They are very warm and pack down to less than an apple. Not totally waterproof though so depends on what sort of balance you want
