  • I'd like some too!. At the mo I use the yellow x gloves with latex gloves underneath

    There is guy on Ebay that does 12 pairs for £50.00. They are fully coated and thermal I get about a month out of a pair before the coating starts to go around the thumb and fingers and then lets moisture in, but for less than a fiver a pair I have not found anything to  beat them. Cant do a link from my phone but the seller is ruftuf-workwear if that's any use.

    I find these hard to beat and virtually indestructible no matter what I'm doing, the amount of concrete & concrete products I Handle they still keep my hands dry when I'm cutting wet grass

        +1 for skytec argon. Very very warm and rubber coating is really tough and lasts for ages. Screwfix used to do them though i think i bought online last time. I do construction and only go through 1 pair over the colder months they are that tough.

        I will have to give the above Skytec Argon a try as others of this type i have used in the past I have found not that great and ive some poor circulation in the right hand

        Untill they get wet I have found the briers thermal riggers good, but they are bulky and not good for holding finer things and used the briers thermal gloves

        I once ordered the Engelbert Straus winter test set as i find the summer gloves fit well and last. https://www.engelbert-strauss.co.uk/work-gloves-sets-accessories/gl...

        Of that set i found the rigger too short in the fingers, the winter glove ice grip (red) too woolly and didnt like getting wet but the Nitrile Foam evertouch gloves (blue) Im still wearing now on the colder days and they are good

  • Wonder grip therm plus are good, water proof, warm and last. Under £5/pair. 

  • These are great https://www.safetygloves.co.uk/295_8_single.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI...

    Shop around though to get the best price. They keep out the wet and cold and are pretty hard wearing (I do Grounds Maintenance/gardening) but they don't keep out the thorns. They look preety cool too!

  • I would back up the last choice, the Ejendals Tegera 295.  The 297 are my first choice for winter moleing now.  The fleece is a little thicker.  Any thicker and I cannot feel the tunnels properly.  As said, they are not thorn proof, but the leather does give good protection.  The 297 has a velcro-closing wrist too (slightly warmer, and, for me, stops more of the soil getting caught up by the glove).
