    I picked up some Halvarssons Beryl Gloves to day for £40 when they are usually £80
    Apparently the Police use these gloves.
    I needed some as the ones I bought last year don't keep my pinkies warm in winter & well they are not really waterproof despite the packaging & salesman saying so.

    According to the shop the Halvarssons Beryl no longer fill the Cat 1 due to a change in the circumstances so he put them on sale (y)

    If they work for you (and I have been there), don't see a problem. You pays you money and makes your choice!

    Good buy at £40.00. (y)
    Got a Halvarson snowboard jacket its fantastic.

    Just replaced both summer and winter gloves summers were 8 years old winters were 6 years old.

    Strangely both replacements ended up being Richa very good gloves got 20% off but still a lot more expensive than £40.00.

    Wonder if you'd say that if you fell off.
    First thing everyone does is put their hands out.
    Cheap gloves = no fingers.

    OK!

    So let me understand this.

    You would rather lose all the skin, not to mention the tendons, on your hand your rather than pay £40 for a pair of gloves?

    How much do you spend on a meal for two when you go out got for an evening?

    £40 is a cheap pair of gloves. I think my winters were in the region of £120.00 and my summers around £100.00. I tend to use the same advice as when buying a new helmet. If you have a £50 head then buy a £50 helmet.

    After a week they are some awesome gloves & well worth the money.
    I have an inherent problem which means my little fingers don't fill the glove however I am breaking them with n before I set a test date.

    My last gloves were cheap £30 jobbies so a big difference.

    Yes. Very handy if you have to leap out of your MH and quell a riot at the CC Office.(y)

    I don't ride a bike, I gave up climbing Mountains when I left the Forces, when in snow I drove a Volvo Snow Cat,I don't wear gloves when I eat, and at the age of 75&2/3rds I'm no longer interested in participating in any sport, and;), I have two perfectly good pockets in my winter coat(y) which I bought from the Hudson Bay Company long ago, which will, so I was told keep me snug as a bug in a rug down to -30c. The Coat cost me C$25 in their summer sale.

    and the OP did not mention M/BIKES, else I wouldn't have said anything untoward:cool:
