    Warm, with just enough grip.

    The warmth of fleece gloves with thin, unobtrusive, grip pads on the palm, up the thumb and on the tip of the index finger.
    I drive a classic campervan and need warm gloves in the winter. These give enough grip on the steering wheel and all the warmth that I could ask for.
    I bought these to replace a 5 year old identical pair that are just starting to show signs of wear (and my son has stolen them!)

    warm gloves

    these gloves are good as a inner layer for a waterproof gloves, they keep your hands warm, only problem be it only a small one, is the elastic over the wrist is a bit tight if you have large hands and wrists, but just easing the elastic a bit helps, but they are still a good cheap pair of gloves.

Adapted clothing
The body produces heat during exercise, which is preserved thanks to the thermal insulation of the outfit. If the clothing is unfit for this purpose, the body will cool down and the blood flow to the hands will drop in order to keep the central core warm. The gloves and clothing should therefore be adapted for use to keep hands comfortable. If you're not sure, it's always best to select a pair of hiking gloves that are slightly too big rather than too small.
Recommended temperature = 1°C
Corresponds to the ambient temperature that 100% of testers considered acceptable. This is 1°C for Forclaz 100 gloves.
Limit temperature = -4°C
Corresponds to the ambient temperature that 90% of testers considered acceptable. This is -4°C for the Forclaz 100 gloves.
How is the use temperature measured?
All our gloves are laboratory tested using a thermal hand to determine the level of warmth as well as the minimum usage temperatures. The minimum use temperatures (recommended and limits) are based on a study carried out on a panel of 23 testers in walking situations exposed to temperatures ranging from 5°C to -20°C and wind of 10 km/h. These temperatures are only valid in walking situations.
Dexterity of the glove
The dexterity of a glove is its ability to manipulate objects. Our gloves have been scored in the laboratory on a scale of 1 to 5. The nearer the glove's dexterity rating gets to 5, the closer the manipulation when wearing the glove gets to that of a bare hand. In particular, we tested the ability to easily put on and open your jacket.
