ALL YOU NEED IS GLOVE
Conor. The glove question is good. First port of call might be McRichly 's Glove Emporium where you could probably buy 2 or 3 pairs of barely used (I write “barely used” because how often can he have worn them – in 1 lifetime?). Next perhaps you could buy into the reality that only a pakamac is completely waterproof and windproof and you have to be 90 and very slow moving to get the benefit. However if you are into cheap and also good you could try this. Walk past the hilly shop (yes I know, it is really difficult) and into the cycling or fishing or shooting shop and pick up some cheap Goretex (or some tex) overgloves or mitts – then a foray into Centra or the like and pick up some v cheapo wool/acrylic gloves to go underneath. This is very good because you only have to wash the inner gloves – but on the hill you get properly wicking gloves which generate heat and also keep it in. Incidentally mitts, cartoony as they are, are the preferred choice of the serious old boys on the Scottish Munros – the waxed wool ones. I have been at this game for 150 years and I have yet to find the perfect gloves but I have found one solution – which doesn’t really help you at the moment – and that is to buy jackets at least a size too big – the sleeves come down over your hands which means you can go without gloves sometimes and when you do put them on you get double warmth heaven.
