Good Gloves - Page 2

post #31 of 35

So, when one uses Sno-seal or Hestra leather balm, does it cause breathability issues with the glove that ultimately lead to wet and cold hands, or is that not an issue?

+4 for Hestra but no gardener chic in their current range wink.gif
 

They are generally only leather on the bits that do the work so there is the back to do the breathing if the palms don't.

Not an issue - for Hestra at least.  I'm a sweater too and my hands are always just cozy in those things.

Thanks guys

I have used a lot of gloves and mitts over the years and the best pair that ive used and has been reliably warm and dry even in sub zero (-25F to 15F) weather are the Black Diamond Mercury Mitt. They are super comfortable, durable enough and the removable liner is great for multi-day hiking or mountaineering trips.

Im sure there are other great alternatives but this one is a proven solution.

I love Swany Gloves----Black leather, super soft, look great, good warmth, use hand warmers on cold days
