Our Acting Consumer Editor, Dan Sutherland, has clocked up 5,000 miles in these winter gloves over the last couple of months. Here's his thoughts.
These Montana 120s from Weise have been my go-to gloves since mid-December last year and have seen off thousands of commuting miles in all weathers, as well as a handful of road tests.
With a mixed polyester and leather construction, the gloves offer a quality feel and the waterproof and windproof Hipora lining means my hands have stayed dry on even the most sodden of rides. Combined with a set of cheap thermal inner gloves, my hands have also remained warm enough for at least 30 miles at as little as one or two degrees, before the winter chill starts to take hold.
As well as keeping me warm, these gloves also offer a degree of protection, with integrated reinforcements on the knuckles and fingers, as well as twin-layered leather across the impact points.
My biggest gripe with these gloves is that they don’t come with a visor wipe on one of the fingers. It’s such an easy addition to an all-weather glove and would prevent me having to use my palm or finger, which causes me to smear most of road salt and grime across my visor, rather than remove it altogether. The pull chord fastening system on the wrists can also be a bit fiddly to open and close.
What about a Weise glove for ladies? We've tested these too.
Our Office Manager, Ali Silcox, tested the Weise Outlast Sirius gloves and gave them a four star review.
