Waterproof thermal gloves
« on: 00:21:36, 09/02/21 »
Could anyone recommend a pair of good thermal gloves. I'm looking for ones that don't restrict my fingers or are too bulky. It's Baltic out at the moment. I've bought lots of gloves in the past that are not warm enough or restrict my hands too much so I can't get anything out my pockets etc.

I bought Prism gloves. I probably should have bought the mitts as I am told they help warm your hands up faster but the gloves work fine.
 Currently Medium sizes on sale here

Sevenup,
Thanks for the link to Mountain kit, not seen it before and sure I will be using it, I rate Montane stuff highly.

I use Tegera gloves in very cold weather. Tegera model 297. They are industrial gloves made for working in freezing conditions, they are also waterproof. They come in different sizes dependent on measuring round your hand so a really comfy fit. 16.79 at Work Gloves.co.uk
It's all uphill from here.

Check out Montane Extremes or Extremities for decent deals.  It's the best time to buy winter gear as the season is coming to an end (not if you actually want to use it this season obviously, but from a deals perspective).


If you want super warm + doesn't restrict fingers then I'd recommend a fold-over finger mitten glove which gives you some dexterity if you need it.  All the rage in Scandinavia for the super-low temperatures.

Might be the sort of thing which is cheap and cheerful.   They do a fully waterproof version on the same site too which is slightly more expensive.

Also worth considering sizing your new gloves so you can wear a pair of thin silk or merino liner gloves inside for extra warmth and to retain some warmth if you have to deglove to do something dextrous.
