Lindstrands Comet gloves, £59
Time tested: Four months/1500 miles
What’s good? They’re short gloves that are very comfortable and work well with all types of textile jackets, making it much easier to put them on and take them off for my 20-minute commute to the office. They’re also waterproof, which is useful in Britain as it seems impossible, even on the sunniest morning, to guarantee that rain won’t have arrived over us by the time the working day is at an end. They’re very breathable without being draughty and the suede-like palms give superb feel for the bars and levers. The price is also very respectable considering the build quality.
What’s not? Other than the inherent limitations of short gloves – there will be a gap if you wear a jacket with a shorter sleeve – there are no criticisms to report.
