Best gloves for buggy users - please tell me there's a stylish option out there!
I do a lot of walking with a buggy. This winter I'm facing the same question about what gloves are warm, waterproof and look good. At the moment I have two options; ski gloves (warm, waterproof and ugly) or thin wool ones (look better but I end up cold and wet).
Would leather be better? I'm trying to decide if it's worth it before I splash out.
I go for wool ones - they are warm enough for me even when wet, and I loathe fully waterproof gloves as they are always too thick. I tend to get fingerless wool gloves with fold over mitten bits on the end so I have fingers spare when the DC inevitably need help with zips/hats/whatever random shit they urgently need doing as soon as I don my gloves.
They may not be the most stylish but I love my 'Mummy Mitts'. They Velcro onto the buggy so you never forget them and you can take your hands out when you need to do something for your children which is very useful. And they're waterproof. And you can always pop your posh gloves into your bag/under the buggy for if needed, but for school runs you can't beat the Mummy Mitts!
Mummy mitts may be the single least appealing name for a product I have ever heard. I can imagine the adverts now: "Mummy mitts - because dads are too manly to need gloves". Annoyingly, i can imagine they are also really useful.
