    Hello,

    We've spent a chilly and wet second winter struggling to find a good pair of gloves for wfp work. None that we've bought have lasted a few weeks before they've worn down and lost their water and wind proof promise.

    Can't find any recommendations online either.

    Which gloves do you use that you'd recommend?

    Thanks a lot,

    Jo

    I have been wearing Showa 377 gloves with a pair of nitrile gloves under them this winter. Wearing the Showa gloves on their own does make your hands pong.

    I've been using Showa 460 for the last few months. I tend to only wear them for the first hour or so until it warms up a bit. I leave them on a radiator over night and they're nice and toasty in the morning.

    I guarantee you if you get a pair of goretex skiing gloves you will not get wet or cold they will last for at least 1 year maybe 2 prepare to pay £50.
