    I have gone through loads of different gloves over the years, from those expensive sealskin gloves to cheap asda 50 p gloves and I have found the best winter gloves seem to be builders gloves....

    The ones with latex on and material which cost a out a tenner for 20 pairs on ebay.
    Most gloves tend to last a week before ripping but builder gloves last about 4 weeks before they are finished. Not bad them about a pound a month in cost.

    Yeah, I'm with smurf on this one. Skytec's are fab for the money. Sometimes I end up taking mine off mid morning as my hands are too hot! I think I got 2 pairs for a tender at arco last yr.

    I fancy a pair of those.....are they nice and tight on the fingers to allow for detailing?

    I am currently using these:

    Great gloves, tough, warm and waterproof, but not too good for detailing as the finger tips are padded. Not ideal gloves for the tradder because of this.
