During today's run in heavy rain and wind, my gloves (Saucony Protection) got soaked and my hands were freezing. I've been on the 'net trying to find something that will keep my hands toasty in similar conditions (if I ever venture out for another run in mad weather) but I'm not getting much joy.

Has anyone found the ideal glove for wild, wet and windy weather? If so, what is it?

I've got some Craft £5 gloves and I've had them for years. They're not waterproof and they dry out straight away after getting soggy. I've never had cold hands with them and I wear them all the time as soon as it starts to get cold and wet. They are v old tho', so prob not available now.

I have a pair of altura waterproof gloves for cycling. They come with an inner glove that is very cosy. Might be too warm for running in though.

I wear these for BMF - press ups in the mud and all that - totally waterproof and very warm so far.

All the gloves look v substantial and I know I'd be too hot in them. I used to wear my cheap ones for BMF too; they got caked in mud regularly. It was a case of them getting wet, warming up on my hands, then the water dissipating. Maybe my cheapies are made out of some amazing material. :)

Yesterday I just carried a spare pair of my thin Ronhill non-waterproof gloves, tucking hands into jacket sleeves to keep dry as long as possible. Changinsg into warm gloves when the first pair got really wet was lovely :)

Thanks for all the advice. I went with Sealskinz in the end. Too thick for most runs but i've done 2 races in persistent torrential rain, when I've got drenched and ended up with frozen fingers, so they are for those sort of days when the heavens open.

Got something to say?
