Glove review: Held Orkney

Held Orkney winter gloves, £54.99
Miles covered/time:
3000/six months

What’s good? Once you have the sizing sussed (see below) the Orkneys are superbly comfortable, break in quickly and aren’t so bulky that can’t feel the levers. The visor wipe and reflective piping are nice touches and the glove is neatly stitched together.

The cuff is very thinly padded which allows it to be easily fitted up a jacket sleeve but may be the cause of the gloves’ disappointing performance…

What’s not? The Orkneys just don’t keep my hands warm enough. Even when the air temperature is in double figures my fingers feel the chill.

Sizing is real issue too, I’m a large or an extra large in most other brands, in the Orkneys I’m a size 11 (XXL), so beware of buying online.

Rating: 2/5 stars
