If Diluvio is warm enough for you then it’s probably a great glove but for the rest of us it’s not a winner.
Good wrist coverage
Not warm enough
On the face of it the Diluvio is an outstanding winter glove, exceedingly well cut and constructed with a long gauntlet for wrist coverage, palm-gripper and a nose-wipe.
What’s not to like? Cold hands, that’s what, and having had three people in the office try them, everyone suffered the same problem: 20 minutes in and our hands were freezing.
The cut is clever but somewhat over-aggressive as it holds fingers in a fist with the seams positioned right on the fingertips.
