|Out of focus gloves … they kept trying to crawl off!|
When you first put them on they do feel a little odd but after a few minutes all is forgotten and they just feel like, well gloves. Although they’re made from 3mm Neoprene, the pre-curved fingers mean there’s very little loss of dexterity. The shape combined with the grippy nature of Neoprene also means that they feel very secure on your handlebars … no slipping or sliding.
If you’ve experimented with waterproof gloves before then I’m sure you’ve come across the problem of removing a glove, getting your hand wet, then trying to get your wet hand back into the glove … most waterproof gloves have an inner liner which tends to ‘snag’ on damp skin resulting in either 10 minutes spent gently massaging the glove back on, or 30 seconds of frantic pulling and swearing. There’s no waterproof liner or membrane in these so the problem doesn’t arise, you still need to be gentle putting them on wet hands but it won’t result in you feeling like you broken 3 fingers in the process.
|I’m saying nothing.|
I’ve had this pair for over 12 months and they’ve seen active service over hundreds of miles, they’ve not leaked, my hands have remained warm and they’ve even started the occasional conversation … Glacier ‘pre-curved’ gloves, available from all good window cleaning supply shops across the internet and beyond, for less than 30 quid.
