    Suggestion I made some time ago is to take off gloves and to sit on them whilst driving to next job. Nice and warm then.

    Only downside is that if they are slightly damp they will leave hand prints on yer bum.......

    Stellafella, try LEWI gloves, i just got some last week £22 they seem so far bob on, time will tell on longevity, i tried sealskinz last year and they were the kevlar ones.....pretty **** to be honest in my opinion, similar price, werent water proof and were knackered in a week

    I don't wear them unless I really have to. The chillblanes kill me. I don't know how I managed when I was trad using cold water in -5 weather, water freezing in the bucket and ice on the ladder. Thank god for WFP.

    Yep, and you knew you were in for a day of it when the applicator had frozen solid in your boot over night. Try mopping a window with a solid applicator. No fun.
