"I work on the roads in all weathers, these gloves were bought mainly because of the weather proof feature, for too long I have had to endure cold wet hands due to the slightest drop of rain or the equipment being wet. The vivid bright orange is a help working on the highways but not essential, the main thing is to have dry warm hands. For the past few days we have suffered some of the worst storms in years[31-12-2013 to 03-01-2014] and I have found these glove to be the best purchase I have made In years. They have kept my hands dry and very warm, and if you work outside you know how painful cold hands are and how long it takes to warm them back up. The only down side I have found with them is that the cuff could do with being made slightly longer in the style of a rigger glove maybe, and that you have slight trouble in picking up small objects from the ground. Overall these are the best wet weather gloves I have ever purchased and I will be buying them again."
