These Merino Wool Fingerless Gloves from EDZ of Cumbria enable you to keep your hands warm and maintain dexterity, writes Mike Gormley.
My family I and have used EDZ Merino products for many years and they just seem to go on and on… Here we have their Merino Wool Fingerless Gloves.
On the face of it you sort of wonder why fingerless? It’s the end of your digits that get cold first! However you often need need them to do all sorts of tasks unencumbered, so it is good to be able to keep your hands warm yet still be able to retain the dexterity you need for so many jobs.
Clearly, as most of us know, Merino is a great material with some really good properties. I have been using these for a while now for such things as kayaking and, in particular, when out taking photos where I need my fingers to be fully operational. While out walking they are great to keep the hand warm while still allowing use of a phone / radio or compass. I find these gloves work really well as liners to mitts. The mitts can provide the overall warmth and protection but when that dexterity is required and the mitts come off you still have a fair amount of insulation when doing what needs to be done.
Available in three sizes and five colours, including olive green, these are a very handy and comparatively lightweight addition to the kit list.
