As stated I have solved my gloves matter in my own way, which works for me. My tube hand covers are very basic and even I know that they are a 'bodge,' but surely a designer could design something similar in a good way? For example a simple 'clip-on' 'velcro on' even magnetised perhaps, just to achieve the desired result. After all its not raining all of the time rain is generally an intermittent problem in my experience. For example, I can see the benefit of those simple cheap gardening gloves, easy to put on and off, treat them well or badly, easy and cheap to buy a new pair. The task as I understand it is to keep one's hands and gloves dry when it's wet, and of course to keep hands warm, I can honestly say that I have no problems in achieving this at all, but I don't think I could achieve it if I just relied on gloves or mittens.

I like Buffalo mittens for when the temperature gets down to a few degrees above freezing. I have a larger pair, under which I can fit thin fleece gloves. However since I got them last year, temperatures have not been that low. I know it's tempting providence but we've not had really cold weather in Derbyshire for some years, by which I mean zero and below.

We have had some cold weather in Aberdeenshire. It was -5 a couple of nights ago and we had the briefest dusting of snow. This year was the first in over 20 years living in Scotland when we had frosts in August. Winter is coming.

Do Hely Hansen still do 'Everest Mitts' ? Mine must be 40 years old and still work great on those most cold days

I have use something similar to these for more years than I can remember.  I buy mine at the local garden centre.

I wear my woolly gloves under them.  100% water proof.  Perfect for snowball fights when the kids were young and I had a pair in my ruck sack for this evenings walk.    O0


I have some of those gloves for garden work. But Iíve recently got a pair of similar ones but which have a synthetic knitted liner instead of the cotton. Iím thinking they should be warmer and deal with water getting in better?


Theyíre OneTouch 4131X if anyone is intera
