Topic - Skytec Argon Gloves. Really?

Dave 88 - on 03 Jan 2013
After everyone raving about these gloves on here, I decided to get a few pairs for work and also use them for climbing if they seemed ok.

Wore them for the first time today and I have to say; I really don't understand the hype.

The fit wasn't great, the thick coating made the gloves very un-dexterous. Even the huge krabs we use at work were a struggle. Also the coating made gripping anything a real hassle. Even just making a loose fist was a bit of a workout, fighting against the material of the glove which seemed to want my hand to stay open.

To top all of this off, it was probably no less than 5 degrees today and after a few hours work outside, my hands were pretty cold and clammy. Not ideal for a glove supposed to be used in cold environments, I was hardly pushing the limits of human endurance today!

Anyone else found these problems? To be honest, I was just a bit miffed after the praise they received on here, that the turned out to be so very naff.

This is them for reference-

Worst bit is, I've got to spend the next week pretending how good they are so I can sell all my pairs to my workmates!
