Gloves

probably one of the most important bit of kits at the moment.

what you guys wearing this season?

i'm looking for ones that are
1. warm
2. water proof
3. not too padded, i still need to be able to play with the switches
4. good grip, dont want that steering wheel slipping in my hands!

any suggestions?

in the last few years i've bought several pairs of which none have been good at all of the above.

looking at some of the other posts recently on the same subject it look likes the sealskinz get good reviews.
only issue i have is on the grip spots on the palms and fingers. The Henri Lloyd gloves i currently use have those and i dont find them that effective.

maybe sealskinz are better in this department!
