    Which might be the case, but being a mediocre trail rider(slow) I don't find them that bad certainly kept my hands warm and dry
    Thats 2 pairs of 'loose fitting" gloves

    Good point, good gloves will be shit if they don't fit right Very Happy

    I got some Sealskins ones recently , £25 odd , looked good to start with as the liner seemd to be sewn in , so didn't pull out , but after a wash & dry they seem to have shrunk so now are a pain to get on . After a minute of having one glove on , and trying to force my fingers into something far too small , I was beginning to get that Michael Jackson feeling too .

    I'm thinking we should maybe put a "recent forum post" on our home page - just to let newbies know what they might be letting themselves into ...

    ...muffsters ones would probably reduce the Christmas ride out to just 4 of us
