Snugpak GeoThermal Gloves (2014)

£35.00

With the Snugpak GeoThermal Gloves a lack of dexterity is the drawback. They’re extremely robust and feel like they’ll last longer than many gloves of similar price. However, they’re so stiff that I found it extremely difficult to actually manipulate anything. This is due to these gloves having a very durable PVC palm that extends over the ends of the ...

For the price tag of just £25 these gloves are quite well featured. They get a polyester shell with an Isotex waterproof lining and Thinsulate ThermoGuard insulation.

Extremities Storm Glove (2013)

£40.00

The low price tag of these gloves is instantly appealing, but with that lower price does come a lower level of performance. The glove does have a Gore-Tex waterproof lining though, so it is no slouch in terms of waterproofness and breathability. The outer of the glove is polyester, rather than a tough nylon and leather combination that would offer ...
