New Winter Gloves
« on: November 12, 2013, 04:52:09 pm »
Hi Guys

I am in the market for a new pair of winter gloves, done a bit of research ( as you do) and fancy a pair of Held Warm n Dry gloves.
Does anyone out there have a pair of these gloves they could give me some feedback on. Also open to any recommendations.

Haven't tried the Held but bought a pair of Vanucci and found them very good:

should not be French  :110:, the site is German and from what I read the description is written in plain English... :187:

 Hi I use the held thermal. Very warm and waterproof. Quattrotempi 4.
Best gloves I have had. Bit expensive but worth every penny.

I don't know much about the glove you mention. However, I recommend you have a look at First Gear waterproof gloves. I've been blown away buy these gloves. They're not advertised as winter gloves, but I've been wearing them in temps down to the 20s (°F). Given the wind protection on the Trophy and the heated grips I've not wanted more.
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

Gerbing heated gloves best gloves I've ever had. I ware them all year round and carry the wires just in case. 5 years old 60K miles plus still water proof and amazingly comfortable. Not cheap but anything thats quality never is  :087: :087:
