Good Sporty Everyday Gloves
on 29 December 2016
I am 5"6 and have average sized hands for someone my size. I ordered the gloves in size S after reading several reviews, and they fit me well (snug lengthwise, roomy around the fingers). The gloves look just like in the photo. They are windproof, but I would not use them to keep water out as the material is not waterproof (water repellent is not the same as waterproof). They will be fine if handling something damp for a short period of time, like scraping ice off the windshield of your car, but they are not intended for snowball making. Not the most aesthetically pleasing gloves, but they do their job for casual attire and are perfect for protecting sensitive skin.
- Everyday use
- Bicycling in winter
- Going for walks
- Keeping wind out
Not suitable for:
- Skiing or snowboarding as they are not waterproof
- Vigorous activity as I imagine hands would get very sweaty
- Staying fashionable
Note: In the product description it says: "Adjustable Cuffs - Elasticated and adjustable cuffs for the best fit", and I have noticed that quite a few people seem a bit confused as to how to do the adjustments. I think the description is worded a bit incorrectly as the gloves are not adjustable in the sense that they have a velcro band or something to change the size at the wrist, but rather, they are suitable for different wrist sizes as the part that covers your wrist is elasticated.
I am happy with this product and would purchase again.
