Altura's Firestorm gloves arrived as part of a bundle, delivered before the Cycling Weekly team embarked upon the Red Bull Timelaps: a 25-hour relay race running overnight.

With high winds, rain and temperatures typical for 2am in October, the event certainly made for a ripe winter kit testing ground, and I've been layering up with these gloves ever since - throughout November and December.
