- Not much at all!
Price as reviewed:
SealSkinz have to be pretty confident in their Ultra Grip gloves to claim complete wet weather and wind proofing, especially with the very reasonable £35 price tag.
The outdoor specialist, who sell a range of clothing items aimed at a wide variety of sports and activities, use an ‘Aqua Dynamic design’ that features durable, stretchable and breathable material – topped off with its wind and water proofing, make for an ideal winter wet weather gloves for cycling.
Available in sizes small to extra large and come in two hi-vis colours; yellow and orange, as well as a number of quieter alternatives too, would suggest that SealSkinz have got it covered not only for the cycling market.
We haven’t found another glove that allows for high levels of protection without the horrid sweaty build up you get, especially with neoprene products. Different material composition including Merino wool, Nylon and Elastane on the inside help keep temperature and moisture regulated, whilst retaining shape and comfort. A Nylon and Elastane only shell keeps the elements out, which also acts as a great giant hi viz nose wipe.
We think these SealSkinz Ultra Grip Hi-Vis Gloves could happily take you through a wet winter. From 10 degree to freezing with a soft inner for comfort, long cuffs for coverage and hand hugging material that remains shaped even in the wet scores highly for us. Though we would suggest a glove liner if temperatures go below freezing.
