    The last few weeks there has been a few chilly mornings and I was wondering what gloves people wear during the really cold weather?? cold water and my hands don't mix very well in single digit temperatures so any pointers to decent gloves will be very welcome!!
    Cheers, Gary

    Still in shorts and T shirt here :). I used gloves for the first time ever last Winter. I bought some Sealskinz. Not bad, but wore out before Winter was over and they kept my hands clean. Your hands do get really dirty in the Winter months.

    I have several types of gloves. The cheap asda garden material gloves for most weather until it gets to about 5c then the thick waterproof work gloves that look like surgeons gloves. Like in the movies where you can literally dip your hands in acid. But it has to be cold to wear those.

    Talking of gloves, we had a clear out over the weekend and I found some wooly Lacoste gloves that I bought in Spain on a lads holiday about 30 years ago. They're as good as new with a silver crocodile on the left glove. I gave them the nipper and he reckons they're well sick :confused:

    I was advised to get sealskinz gloves, I do like them, but did wear through quite quick, but still usable, probably get another pair for winter. Good thing is they are quite tight fitting so can detail with them ok,
