Comfort is related strongly to performance and pleasure and consequently it is important to keep your hands warm and dry. It is also important to maintain a degree of dexterity for fiddling with equipment such as compasses or climbing gear. The trick is to use the right handwear for the job!

Gloves for kids can be found in the Childrens Gear section.

For general cool to cold weather walking, our most basic option is the Thinny glove from Extremities. This is a stretchy Meraklon one-size-fits all job, cheap and functional. Extremities also offer a range for high-quality fleece gloves in different weights (the Sticky Thicky and Sticky Windy, and the featherweight windproof Windy Lite. The Black Diamond Lightweight, Midweight and Heavyweight are popular as liner gloves in a layering system and on their own. We also stock thin, warm merino wool liner gloves fromIcebreaker and silk liner gloves from Outdoor Designs.

The concept of layering gloves is like wearing a thermal baselayer, fleece and then a waterproof. Gloves offer the greatest degree of manual dexterity and the thinner the better, whilst mitts offer the best way to keep your hands and fingers warm (or warm them when they're cold) as your digits can heat each other. If you need a combination of dexterity with massive warmth then you have two options: a really thick glove will work to a degree but dexterity will be reduced especially if the insulation beneath the fingers is thick, or a combination of a mitt and a liner glove. This gives maximum dexterity for short periods when the mitt is removed and maximum warmth when dexterity is not required. A mid weight glove with more warmth than a liner combined with a mitt that can be added at times of rest (such as belays) may be best for cold conditions climbers, but can require the occassional moment of suffering.

Outer layer gloves range from the Outdoor Designs Summit Shell, which can be used as alone or with a liner as a basic snow and ski glove, to the Black Diamond Specialist, an incredibly warm and fully featured mountaineering glove. Winter walkers should look at the Outdoor Designs Summit range of mitts and gloves, or the Corbett from Extremities. Climbers and mountaineers after an outer layer will want to go straight to the Black Diamond range for everything from dry tooling to high altitude expeditions. The Buffalo mitt is a great backup mitt for both groups, because it will stay warm when wet and packs down to a very small size in your rucksack.

If you are a traditionalist or just want a fantastically durable alround winter work tool then seriously consider Dachstein mitts and gloves from Huber. These are made from boiled wool, after decades of development in glove technologies, many (including our staff!) still consider them the best thing around. They will ice up in very cold conditions, providing additional insulation, or are ideal when combined with a waterproof shell like the Extremities Tuff Bags in wetter weather. Dachstein gloves and mitts can be seen on mountains around the world, and live in mountain and expedition sacks as emergency spares everywhere as well. They are absolutely superb. We can send them to you wherever you are- Europe, North America, Asia, Australia...

We also have waterproof gloves from Seal Skinz. The Ultra Grip glove is great for general use, and there is a model specifically made for mountain biking. You can stick you hand in a bucket of water in either of these, and it'll stay bone dry. They make great waterproof socks too.

Rob Smith - Offa's Dyke In One Sitting - A new unsupported FKT

I set out from the official start (or end) of the Offa’s Dyke National Trail in Prestatyn with the intention of running (jogging, hiking and a lot of hobbling) – the 177 miles to the other end of the trail at Sedbury Cliffs, just outside Chepstow. I did finally get there, just over 3 days later, setting what is, for now, a fastest known time for a self-supported completion of the trail.
