I need new gloves for my Easter trip. Can anyone recommend theirs? I have had mittens in the past but might consider gloves this time. Quality warmth longevity are my priorities.

TIA

I have some Spyder ones that I bought in 2003 and which are still going strong. They are leather and look a bit like biker gloves but they are incredibly warm. Bit faded now though.

I've got some Helly Hansen ones where the thumb and index finger are separate the the other 3 fingers are together.
They're fab.

Bloke on R4 the other day who lives in Siberia said mittens every time! (generally around -30 there shock)

Don't get the gorgeous super soft and very expensive Salomon mittens I recently got. Cold fingers!

Hestra C Zone Powder mittens for me. They are too warm sometimes but Feb this year was freezing and I was still cosy smile

I always see hestra recommended. I’ve just bought some (mittens) for my always cold-of-claw daughter. Haven’t tried them out yet as we aren’t off skiing until next week.

@user1494670108 oh dear! We're they the Salomon natives? As I've been looking at Salomon ones

I also like the look of the Hestra c zone but can't find any. What is the sizing like?

I have Celtek ski mittens (which I really like and are very warm) but I also have normal Hestra gloves (which are amaaazing) and they size small ime.

Yes I have Salomon natives and agree they are not great . Not waterproof at all . I've a backup pair of trespass ones that are so much better
