Service rating : I ordered the gloves on the Friday and they were delivered before midday on the Monday which I was very impressed with. I also received text alerts to tell me what time I could expect the delivery. This made my day much easier to arrange.
Product : These are mens gloves but I bought them regardless as I wasn't a fan of any of the selection of ladies gloves.
I ordered the gloves on the Friday and they were delivered before midday on the Monday which I was very impressed with. I also received text alerts to tell me what time I could expect the delivery. This made my day much easier to arrange.
The gloves came in a clear plastic wrapping, as expected.
I ordered them in a size Small as the sizing guide suggested they would be the right size for me. They fit well across the palm but my fingers are unfortunately not long enough to fill them. This does cause me some issues as it makes it a little awkward trying to do simple tasks like pulling a zip up without having to remove the gloves. It does also mean they sometimes feel like they are slipping off.
They can be put on and taken off very easily thanks to the velcro strap around the wrist. I find the double protection of the stretchable fabric to cling to my wrist and the gauntlet style of the glove allowing me to wear it over my jacket keeps my hands nice and warm.
I bought these gloves to keep my hands warm and dry during the approximately 40 minute journey I take on the motorway 3 or 4 days a week. They work well for the first 30 minutes or so of this journey but I do find my hands start to get cold in the last few miles. Were I travelling any further these gloves probably wouldn't be of much use. I have not yet had a chance to see how they fair in the rain. Strangely I haven't been caught in a downpour yet since I purchased them. I imagine they would be fairly good at keeping out water but I'm not sure if I believe that they are entirely waterproof. Only time will tell if that is the case.
I would recommend these gloves for anyone looking for some reasonably priced winter gloves especially if they are only to be used for shorter distances.
