PRODUCT REVIEW – SealSkinz Ladies Fit Windproof Gloves by Gail R4W Member
STYLE – Although having the manufacturer’s logo on the index finger didn’t quite make them everyday gloves! Score 5/5
COMFORT – I had some friends at my sailing club try them on. Two of them have complained in the past about gloves being too long in the fingers. These were perfect and I have been asked to source them.Score 5/5
BREATHABILITY – Although only rated as 2 for thermal, I found them delightfully warm. But hands didn’t get overly warm either. Best gloves I had had for a long time and the grips on the palms and index and middle fingers were excellent. I could lock and unlock my front door without having to remove my gloves. I don’t usually drive in gloves because they slip. These gripped perfectly.Score 5/5
QUALITY – They seem well made and therefore durable. Score 5/5
OVERALL Comfortable, warm and not bulky. Perfect for winter walks and just being outside on frosty mornings. They may be a little too warm as running gloves. Certainly they are windproof. Score 5/5
