Love: the soft inner & general feel

What I would change: Women-specific or Slender-hand fit

Dry hands, that luxury above all luxuries, on a day out in rainy hills.  However ‘waterproof’ any glove proclaims to be, it’s simply not possible to keep them dry when there’s a stonking great hole to shove your soggy hands into. Most gloves have been disappointing in one way or another.  I therefore went into this review experiment with very low expectations.  My review is of the Trespass Shino unisex Adult GLX Glove in size XS/S, which boasts the following features:

What to Pack - Scottish Winter

"2016 was my first experience of the full power of Scottish winter. As a complete beginner, I headed into the mountains for some training with my friends and colleagues.

Mountain Hardwear // Medusa Glove: Review

Mountain Hardwear Glove Review02Love: the waterproofness.

What I would change: Need to have women's sizes.

Best for: Wet Scottish winter climbing, walking and mountaineering.

Description:  Inner and outer glove - Inner is a windproof soft-shell with palm grippers, which covers the hand snugly.  Outer is a separate super-waterproof glove, with  high gaiter, nose-wipe thumb panel, easy function gaiter-tightener and arm-hangers.
