Thinsulate Fleece Ladies Gloves
Advantages: Warm, warm, warm
Disadvantages: Nothing major but too thick to drive with
When the weather starts to get really cold, I immediately reach for my hat and gloves. Last year as a little extra for Christmas my husband bought me a new hat and gloves. Now, he knew that I needed a new set but I had warned him that the most expensive doesn't always mean the warmest. Anyway, I was very pleased when I received a lovely purple hat with purple gloves to match. The gloves that he bought were these THinsulate Fleece gloves, although mine come with with a little velcro wrist strap, which is really more decorative that anything but you can tighten or loosen the wrist using this if required, as the gloves themselves seem to be one size. I suppose as well the velcro strap does keep the heat in to a degree rather than in gaping at the wrist.
Thinsulate is a recognised name in the world of warm winter hats and gloves, so I was confident that these gloves would be warm. To be honest, I don't go for the latest look when it comes to gloves since we do a lot of walking and I simply want a warm pair of gloves, regardless of whether they are 'trendy' or not.
I'm not sure what exactly my husband paid for these gloves, but having a quick search online, you can pick up a pair at a cost of anywhere between £3 and £5, so they are not expensive, but yet do the job perfectly.
These gloves are made from fleecy material and have a fleece lining as well making them a really warm choice for a glove. They are meant to trap the body heat and that is exactly what they do. From the moment you put them on you feel the warmth in the gloves and then when you actually start any physical activity, you really do feel the warm grow so much so that I sometimes have to start stripping the gloves off near the end of our walk as my hands are sooo warm. That said, it snowy conditions, I doubt I would be wanting to take them off.
The other great thing about these gloves beyond their obvious warmth, is that even if it is wet, they don't absorb the water and your hands will be kept dry inside, so of you are out walking in hail or rain in cold conditions, your hands will still be toasty and warm and dry.
These gloves are actually far warmer than the gloves that I previously owned which would have cost more money, so as I had warned my husband, higher prices doesn't always equal more warmth. Although the weather last year wasn't snowy like the previous couple of winters, there were plenty of cold cold days last year when I got to try these gloves out and even a few this Autumn, and they really are terrific gloves. If I had one complaint, and I think this is the case with most warm gloves, they do restrict your hand grip, so I wouldn't like to drive with these gloves, but then again I have never had a glove where I can do that, so I've never been used to it!
Summary: A great priced warm glove
