    Now that the cold is upon us, I'm going to have to dig deep for a pair of waterproof gloves. I used to use some Unger gloves(which were good, except easily ripped due to being made from Neoprene- I think?). I'm also looking at some Joka Hold gloves on EBay which look quite good. Any recommendations for quality gloves that are cost effective?

    These are not the best, but I used these last winter and worked ok.
    Not 100% waterproof but kept my hands warm. Used about 3 pairs in a day on wet days

    There warm though. If you look in shops for them you can get a good piaire. Some of them have not been made properly and have rubber all done the fingers.

    Well broke my duck with the real cold this morning, it was freeezin. Started off with a pair of latex gloves underneath the Unger hi-flo ones and was doing trad, boy they are no good for trad my fingers were killing me and in bad winter won't be much good for wfp if ya get em soaked so I'll keep using em for biking instead.

    I was only round corner from home so popped back and nicked my lads magic gloves, I put those on with a pair of latex over top and then a pair of heavy duty black rubber gloves over that. Sorted, hands were dry and didn't feel cold again but was still able to trad ok with all those on.

    iv always found gloves to be more hassle then there worth for trad, yes they keep your hands dry, but not your cloths, makes detailing a nightmare!
