    Tell me more, because my hands kill me in the winter. I have ariat glacier tall boots for my feet....but hands...they freeze.


    Why do you find these gloves to be the best. Inquiring minds want to know before shelling out 45.00.

    My absolute favorite has been the SSG Winter Trainer glove. Wore them in Montana to ride, and they kept my fingers toasty through a LOT of snow removal and barn work as well as riding last winter in Virginia. I kept them water resistant with mink oil, and they have yet to let me down, even pulling ice out of troughs. They stay soft enough to ride with a good feel in, too.

    LOVED MY SEALSKINZ! I had a pair for winter 2 years ago, and I did everything in them, including breaking ice in troughs and general yard work- never cold, never wet.

    Why don't I still have them? We adopted a dog, and after she moved in I accidentally left my hat, with gloves in, in the kitchen with her. The hat contained a pair of 2 quid thin cotton riding gloves and my 30 quid or so sealskinz. Guess which pair she decided she wanted to eat.

    You can check on them here; http://www.sealskinz.com/
    "Laminates"
    A more durable method is to use a waterproof breathable film or "membrane", which is laminated (‘glued’) to a layer of fabric inside the garment. SealSkinz® socks and gloves incorporate a Porelle membrane which is laminated between the inner and outer layers. Porelle membrane is both waterproof AND breathable, and will never wash away.

    For those of you that have them, how do their sizes run? I have pretty small hands, so I'm not sure if I would go with "X Small" or "Small"...

    That sizing chart printed at -10% based on the sclae at A. So - allowing for the 10% error and conversion to inches, the sizing around your palm is as follows (measuring B to B);
    XS = 6.5"
    S = 7.82"
    M = 9.21"
    L = 10.35"
    XL = 11.23"

    Why didn't I know about these when I was a working student???
    I searched long and hard for something warm AND waterproof, that I could do my work in (and maybe ride in as well) to no avail! These seem absolutely perfect. And if you have to do a lot of barn chores in the winter, breaking/picking ice out of troughs especially, you know the gloves are worth every single penny of $45.
