Cycling Weekly Verdict

Excellent gloves that really do provide warmth from the very first pedal stroke. The wind protection is second to none and waterproofing proved to be excellent, too. I'd like a nose/sweat wipe and better touchscreen capability, but will still be reaching for these until spring.

My initial reaction when unwrapping Stolen Goat's Climb and Conquer gloves was one of extreme surprise. The packaging declared them 'deep winter' gloves, but what rested in my hands looked more like a wooly pair you might purchase from one of the 'can we interest you in...' buckets near the till of a supermarket. They didn't look high tech to me - but I was mistaken.
