I will second Matts observations, I have had a pair for about 5 years, and they are still the warmest gloves I have ever owned

Thumbs up H.G. 3 finger gloves

HEAR HEAR!

Ive owned a pair for 2yrs now and i cant fault them, warm in the winter, but can get hot n sticky in warm weather. Can be a bit of a bugger if you want to gesticulate to someone who has cut you up on the road tho. Lol.

Yes that was the first thing I noticed... you have to give them the hand Italian style rather than just one or two fingers! I found myself slapping my head at people.... bit daft really.

I don't advocate road rage, but a friendly gesture or signal of intention is a good thing The w@nker sign also works in the Pathan (sp?) gloves , not as effective when directed at a female driver

I've had 2 pairs and I end up breaking the gortex membrane down in the left glove through repeated clutch action I guess. The right never fails. They're the best wet weather/winter gloves I've had, hence buying the second pair. They've got thin palms too so work well with heated grips. I've been wearing them as "wet" gloves for 5 years and will buy another pair if they wear out. Great bits of kit. " Live long and prosper" as Spock would say !
