Has anybody had any success replacing single gloves when a single one is lost? I think I probably know the answer already but just thought I'd ask before shelling out hard earned cash on a new pair. I lost a mountain equipment Randonee glove in the Alps this year after little use at a cost of around 50 which is very frustrating. I've emailed mountain equipment but had no reply, I guess lost single gloves helps them sell more pairs.

In reply to Alan.T: my girlfriend at the time, now wife lost a flip flop between the rocks in a bay. I told her to check a website called "repairthepair.com" i thought it was worth a try?

The decent thing to do is to throw the other one after the one you dropped - that way at least somebody has a chance of getting a pair of gloves, even if it's not you.

Alternatively, buy Dachsteins.

A flip flop? Even tighter than me, they must only be a fiver a pair, got yourself a good one there, not surprised you married her. I didn't think about throwing the other one off for somebody else to find, a good excuse for going back next year to try and reunite the pair. Already have mitts but like to have gloves also, would buy cheap ones if I could find any warm enough. Thanks anyway.

buy another pair and you'll have a spare.

it'd be daft for anyone to sell single gloves (unless they were chainmail or chainsaw ones or something). Can you imagine all the space they'd take up in the warehouse? :-)

In reply to Alan.T: Don`t give up! I lost a glove skiing in the Jura last year,I thought I had dropped it getting into the car at the end of the days skiing but it turned up 5 days later by a bus stop in Geneva where I had stopped to clear ice off the car window!

I think it's time for my fabulous new business: the GloveMatch.com website, uniting lonely gloves across the globe with other halves which match: for every left glove lost, there's probably a right one goes, and for evey one found ... well, you get the picture. If I charge a quid for every pair that is re-united or made up afresh, I'll make.. oh, 2.50 ... But how long before Russian glove-forgers on the make get wind of it and start posting alluring picture of attractive gloves to snare the unwary and desperate?
