Anyone else tried them?

They are waterproof, thermal lined, breathable and have an amazing dot grip pattern printed on the palm which is almost tacky to the feel - this makes holding on to things a breeze. Because they are not bulky at all you can do most of the things that you would normally have to take your gloves off for.

If they ever wear out - I will certainly be buying another pair...
Great - will order myself a few pairs - thanks for the advice!!!

Mine are a similar style but have plastic cuff rings to connect to the drysuit not the latex wrist seals and are used mainly for diving. Divers use a section of tube to equalize pressure inside the gloves through the suit, maybe that would also work for some breathability.

Now there you go... Actually that has been a lifelong habit of mine... I enjoy the hand warmers, both of them! I confess.. I am a glove hater!

get down the pound shop and pick up some bargain gloves, pick up a few pairs so if they get wet then change to a fresh pair. they are cheap and warm and almost disposable
