Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I don't like my issue leather gloves, I find them too cumbersome and slack. I got a smaller size but they still don't feel right. Anyone with any recommendations where I can get a pair that fit snuggly whilst not restricting my movements and keeping my hands warm?

    Berghaus windstoppers are very good, borrowed a pair from a mate for a bimble up in scotland. Highly recommended!

    ...they wont stop you from getting them wet though.
  3. Never felt the need for them meself

    Pockets do me fine.............. :thumright:
  4. I got a pair of those Sealskinz for a trial. God they were great... for the first day. Once they got damp they were fcuking freezing, and I was better off without them. A liner pair sorted it out, but honestly, the issue jobs are heard to beat.
  5. what about these?

    Iwas going to ask the same thing, i ive seen people wearing fingerless gloves as you can still operate things easily but they don't really keep your fingers warm!

  7. go for a divers glove once wet they will keep you warm or do as most sappers do and use your pockets thats what they were designed for if the army had wanted you to put stuff in em they would have given it to you already

    I still have a very old pair of NI gloves.......excellent product.
  9. I'e never used them on land, but when I'm out on the water in winter neoprene sailing gloves are the dog's bits. Becuase they are neoprene they fit nice and snug and make doing fiddly jobs easy. They are waterproof and toastie too. I should think they are just as good in a field or half way up a mountain. About £15 a pair, just type 'sailing gloves' into any search engine... or try this one

  10. I've still got a pair of the firs issue green gloves going strong
  11. Aye, neoprene diving or sailing gloves are very good for wet conditions.
  12. Seconded. Dirt cheap and very hard to beat. They'll take a bashing and they're warm as hell too.
  13. Take a bashing or give a bashing?
