    Right folks, I know I can rely on you for personal recommendations. After getting soaked this morning, I need a pair of decent gloves. I would rather they were lightweight and waterproof. I have bulky ski gloves and while comfortable, they are totally impractical.

    I've heard good things about SealSkinz but the question is, which ones?

    Any other recommendations welcomed!!

    I had some Sealskinz last for over ten years - they were the "grippers" and were absolutely superb. At present I have some Mountain Horse padded leather riding gloves which are also superb - waterproof, warm and still allow dexterity.

    I have noticed Sealskinz do riding gloves....maybe they are the Holy Grail of the glove world? :eek: :D.

    Link?? :)

    Which SealSkinz do you have? I like the look/price of the Amazon ones.

    I tried to find mine last night for someone else and I think Mountain Horse have discontinued them to be replaced with another sort. I think they were padded "general purpose" or "utility" or some such name. Sorry :eek:. Rideaway Equestrian Equipment - Horse Riding Wear, Saddlery & Riding Boots | Ride-Away has a huge selection of gloves including MH and Sealskinz.

    I have the Ladies All Season gloves. They are amazing for when it is really cold, my hands were toasty warm last winter. They aren't too bulky either so I can gets stuff out of my pockets without fumbling around too much.

    I am using the ones from Amazon at the moment, especially when it's raining & Roxy is on a long lead - my hands were getting filthy, cold & wet otherwise

    Sealskinz Ultra grip for me :) They are excellent.

    I hate bulky ski type gloves because I find it really hard to use my hands! Clipping leads, picking up poo and getting treats out of pockets is impossible!

    The Sealskinz Ultra grippers are lightweight, non-bulky, but water and wind proof so lovely and warm, even when making and throwing snowballs!

    These are the ones I have:

    These are what I'm leaning towards at the moment. Did you order from the website or is there a cheaper supplier I'm missing?

    I've had mine for ages and they were a present so not sure where they came from. It does seem a bit pricey for a pair of gloves I know, but I promise you they will last for years and you won't regret it :)

    Another vote for Sealskinz Ultra Grip... I have a horse so the fact that I can use my gloves for both riding and dog walking, is a winner :)

    They are amazing!

    And my SealSkinz are three years old now :)

    Lowe Storm Glove Womens Black - Lowe Alpine - Lowe Alpine - All Brands - £27.00 - Trekitt Mountain Sports

    I got these while I was on holiday in Wales. Recommended by one of the outdoor shops. Not tried them yet but wanted waterproof as well as warm. How many times have I had nice warm gloves on a dogwalk only to get soaked in the winter and end up with freezing fingers :). I tried getting dog treats out of my treat bag before buying and they are such a good fit and not at all bulky so it was easy.
