Alpkit Aura Grip Gloves

£16 www.alpkit.com

These fleece gloves are warm. The thin silicon webbing pattern on the palms and fingers gives you excellent grip on a range of materials including walking poles, handlebars and metal flasks. They keep your hands warm in both snow and rain. In very cold temperatures or with wind I found they reached their limit, but they are thin enough to wear under a shell as a liner glove. The elasticated wrist helps to taper them to fit under the sleeve of a top or jacket. They felt a little loose after several washes, which means a loss of dexterity, but I could still perform basic functions with ease. Some bobbling also appeared on the fabric after laundering. In short, warm and grippy.
