I suffer with very cold hands in the winter so needed something to keep them cosy whilst fell walking. I came across Sealskinz Ultra Grip Gloves which have a Merino wool lining and designed to be windproof, 100% waterproof whilst still being breathable. I tested the waterproofing out by putting my hand in a bowl of water and its true to its claim, not a single drop seeped through the glove. There are dots on the palm and fingers, which I find are really useful when scrambling on mountains. The only problem I have with them and this is a major problem, I just do not find they keep my hands warm. I dont know if its just me that has the problem as I have a problem with my hands getting excessively cold anyway. I dont think they are the most attractive of gloves, but then again most practical, outdoor ones tend not to be. They only come in one colour which is black. Sealskinz ultra grip gloves can be used for a variety of sports such as cycling, horse riding, water sports, etc. Another downside is the cost as they set me back £25.
