PostSubject: Armadillo Gloves   Sun Dec 06, 2015 9:47 am

Me & Yorky visited J & S Doncaster on Friday. Whilst looking around the clothing section we spotted some "Armadillo" winter gloves in the bargain bin at £30.00 a pair.
They're a little bulky but not too bad, are windproof & waterproof with a "sticky palm" ... sort of a rubbery type pattern on the palm / fingers to aid grip and of a soft fabric construction ( look / feel a bit like skiing gloves ) and after buying a pair each and riding from Doncaster to Squires cafe I can honestly say they are the warmest gloves I've ever come across. Not sure about how they'd perform sliding down the road however !

A bargain at £30 for sure ...... there's nothing worse than cold hands when riding in winter !

Here's a review I found on Youtube, it actually compares them with a Piaggio branded Dainese  pair of gloves but shows you the features of the Armadillo ones clearly.....
