Alpinestars Tech Road GTX gloves £149.99

Time tested: 1500 miles/6 weeks

What’s good: These have barely been off my hands over the past six weeks as my daily commuting winter gloves. They have seen temperatures as low as -8°C, lashing rain, snow, sleet, and more rain. So far they have been impregnable which comes as a massive relief, having had to replace a really old set of Dainese gloves that wore out. There are some nice touches too. Each index finger has a rubber point for use on a satnav screen and the left thumb has a rubber wiper blade. And unlike many modern gloves these don’t have an infuriating double liner.

What’s not: The price. You can get them cheaper than the £149.99 RRP but they are still expensive.
