I had to track some of these down for a friend who works for a laundry service picking up and delivery really heavy bags.....managed to get some thinsulate ones from ebay. So she will be chuffed that they will be in wider circulation...if nothing else!
I love 'em! They're really good for sports. Back in the day, when I was a climber, I even used them as 'crack mitts' in a pinch, so I could shove my hand in stone clefts on the cliff w/o taking the skin off the back of my hands. They're so good for running.
absolute waste of money, always hated them but when I was 11yrs old and went over to a very cold, unheated church to practice the organ we decided that they would be useful.............NOT AT ALL. As someone else has mentioned the fingertips still get cold - and it's them you need to use!!!!
