Rukka R star Goretex Carbon
The best gloves out there
Previously I had bought cheap gloves and I just had enough of freezing fingers. So I splashed out and bought these Rukka gloves. When putting them on they immediately fit snug. They have kept my fingers warm and bone dry all winter 2015/2016 and it´s now nearing the end of March. The temperatures in London have dropped below freezing on a few occasions. At most I do hour long drives to work and I have been more than happy with these gloves. The leather is quality, they are well made and make your hands feel protected. Inside there are two compartments in which you can put your hands. One for warmth and the other if you need to have more of a sense of grip feel, but I just tend to use the warmth part as I feel I have enough grip. They don´t feel too bulky. Rukka is a Finnish company and so you can guarantee they will be well made and they know what they are talking about when it comes to cold weather! One important factor to keeping your fingers warm is to also keep the rest of your body warm, so make sure you have some good base layers to keep your core body temperature up. If you don´t do this your fingers will get cold what ever type of gloves you have. These gloves have gone up in price since I bought them, but that is probably because people have cottoned on to how brilliant they are.
