- Desperate for some super warm gloves
I’m really feeling the cold in my hands now when out walking…and with 3 spaniels, I’m out every day. I’ve a pair of Sealskinz all weather gloves, great on the bike, but just don’t keep my hands warm walking. Used to have some woollen gloves that were good.
Anyone got any recommendations, not bothered by technical stuff or waterproof, just warm!Posted 1 month agochakapingSubscriber
To elaborate on my earlier comment, I used to have a pair of Sealskinz MTB gloves that were the only things which did the job when it got a few degrees below – but were too bulky for technical riding.
Now when it’s really cold I wear some Polaris liner gloves under some Aldi winter cycling gloves and my hands stay toastie with good bar feel.
Works just as well on dog walks.Posted 1 month agoballsofcottonwoolMember
It might be worth getting checked out by your doctor if you don’t normally feel the cold. I’d been getting more affected by the cold over the last year, initially put it down to age having just turned 40 but after a couple of bloodtests doctor discovered I was borderline anaemic due to low folate levels, 10 days on folic acid tablets and it was like my central heating had been turned back on.Posted 1 month agow00dsterSubscriber
I’ve got a pair of North Face gloves, for the UK I don’t need a liner underneath them, in Finland recently it was -22, same gloves with a silk liner was fine.Posted 1 month agoCountZeroMember
I’m outdoors all day, but I have to be able to use a handheld device, and gloves with touch-screen fingertips are rubbish, they just don’t give enough accuracy when using a phone, so when it’s cold, like it has been the last few days I wear Thinsulate-lined woolly shooters-mits. The only disadvantage is when car screens have a lot of condensation on the inside, I have to squeegee it off before I can drive, and it gets the glove wet, which means chilly fingertips, but most of the time my fingers are nice and warm, I’ll quite often just have my right index finger exposed while using my handheld for data input, then tuck my finger back into the warm.Posted 1 month ago
Works a treat.
£5/pair, I’ve got several pairs, they’re the mutts wotsits. 😁houndlegsMember
I picked up a pair of neoprene ones in Aldi yesterday, fishermans gloves using same principle as countzero’s. I’m hoping for a fiver that they’ll be grand for work. The tips fold back on 2 fingers and thumb so I can use my touchscreen device and just flip the tips back when I get the frozen stuff out of the van. Could’nt find my bike gloves last night so used these, they were very good for an hour and a half, actually a bit warm to start off. https://www.aldi.co.uk/crane-two-fold-green-fishing-gloves/p/021375327806804Posted 1 month ago
