    I am after some new winter gloves. I am looking at these Sealskinz performance activity gloves:

    http://www.sealskinz.com/UK/gloves/kj301-performance-activity-glove-black.html

    Has anyone tried these?. They are pretty expensive at 50 quid, but worth it if they keep my hands nice and warm. I have used the Sealskinz ultra grip gloves in the past but found they dont keep the hands too warm and tend to fall to pieces after a year.

    After last winter I fancy some decent gloves. These look warm and tough. Close fitting too, so ideal for detailing.

    I like gloves that are fairly tight fitting to make detailing easier. After last winters (and springs) temperatures I want to get a good pair.
