WHAT THEY SAY: The Shield neo­prene win­ter glove is a great wet weather choice. Like a wet­suit, the neo­prene fab­ric keeps you warm when it’s wet.

WHAT WE SAY: Flex­i­bil­ity can be com­pro­mised when cy­cling gloves are fully wa­ter­proof. Madi­son gets around this with these com­pletely non-wa­ter­proof neo­prene gloves which in­stead soak up mois­ture which the body’s nat­u­ral heat then warms up to keep your dig­its toasty. The re­sult is a highly flex­i­ble glove with plenty of stretch al­low­ing al­most com­plete free­dom of move­ment. The large size we tested for our ad­mit­tedly large hands had plenty of give around the high cuff, too, which is im­por­tant be­cause you need good cir­cu­la­tion to your hands if the ab­sorbed mois­ture in the gloves is to be warmed up. A sil­i­cone panel over the palm al­lows for plenty of grip even when wet, while re­flec­tive de­tail­ing on the mid­dle and ring fin­gers aid vis­i­bil­ity when in­di­cat­ing. Avail­able in S-XL, these also come with a lim­ited life­time guar­an­tee.
