With a silicon-print palm, windproof membrane, thermal filling, and a pretty water repellent outer surface, these BBB Highshield gloves tick all our British winter boxes.

Internally the bulk packs down so what initially feels quite restrictive soon becomes far airier.

A long cuff with a pull is snug enough to prevent draughts for most folk, but not so bulky that it doesn't fit under a jacket sleeve. The breathability isn't as high as some higher spec gloves but then neither is the price.
