Picked up this pair of odd looking Sealskinz gloves from Alex Harris yesterday and test rode them last night at Modderfontein Trials, temperature dipping to 7C (bit too warm for these so it felt like a nice oven).

In addition I’ll have a pair of First Ascent inner fleece gloves and normal long finger riding gloves. Hopefully this collection will suffice to protect my soft office keyboard conditioned paws.

6/6. Cold front is here and -6C RealFeel at 5am so time to test. Rode Sealskinz without inners (as per Alex Harris’s recommendation) and they were superb, almost too warm. Then took them off & used normal long fingers with fleece inners to get a perspective. They were fine but not as warm as the Sealskinz. Then I took all gloves off for last 2km, it was freezing! Gloves sorted, I’ll have warm hands at R2R 🙂
