Alpinestars WR-3 GTX gloves, £94.99
Miles covered/time: 2500/eight months
What’s good? A ‘middle-warmth’, leather glove that achieves that tricky compromise of near-sports glove-style snugness and finesse but with enough Gore-tex and whatnot warmth to make them sufficient through most of November and February.
They’re easy to get on, comfy and showerproof, made of full grain leather with a Gore-tex membrane, suede palm, padded knuckles and have a Velcro cuff. No fuss, they just do it.
What’s not? The styling’s a bit bland, both for my taste and the price, and the cuffs could do with being a tad longer, but I’m starting to be picky now. They do what it says on the tin. End of.
