Control your weather

Fed up of rain, snow and wind?

TBH, I'm not. I like such conditions.

That said, I'm aware that there are folk out there that don't like the wintry weather. They sit around moaning about it, wishing that it could be changed.

Well, I've found the answer to all of their prayers. Now they can do something about their local weather conditions!

According to LFTO/Trail, all they need is a pair of these new Mountain Hardwear OutDry gloves:

  1. The gloves look good, don't they. It would have been good to have some to test here in Ottawa in -30C conditions. The old Regattas are occasionally struggling!
    We've had nearly 2 metres of snow so far this winter. It's routine.
    It's quite strange to see all the UK outdoors bloggers concentrating on the weather just now.

    @Martin Banfield - Yep, "cool" gloves. The trouble with such things is the shape - I usually have to go through the whole shop-stock before I find a pair that fit well (I've wide palms and short skinny fingers). So far, the only gloves that I've found that fit well and provide sufficient protection are Outdoor Designs Winterflex Infernos (which, IMHO, are the best tactical snowballing gloves I've ever used).

    I've been enjoying the reports of your Canadian adventure - impressive stuff!

    For heaven's sake. Those aren't gloves. They're handwear technology!

    @Scott - Sorry, my mistake. I'll go get the sackcloth and ashes.
