Hmm more fun with Gore-tex. Well I hate to break this to people, but it doesn't work in gloves or boots for that matter. They simply have not built a material which will cope with the wear and tear of extremties usage. It does work on jackets ( though only in the right conditions ). I think the problem is people are very sucked into the hype from all the companies. Nothing is perfect and certainly with the top designers using Gore-tex we are all probably using it, but we have to be aware that is it limited and by no means a 'miracle fabric'.
The only gloves I know that stay usable are the range from Extremities, but that is really due to their construction being bomb-proof rather than the goretex insert.
Also consider Mitts rather than gloves...less seams = less chance of failure!
I can't be doing with hitting the high street and braving the masses trying to get a bargain. I know that my mate Tim always has good prices and has a sale on at outdoorgarage.com, but I was wondering if he has some competition? Particularly on climbing products??
