Mountain Biking UK - - WRECKED & RATED -

The Hy­dro­mat­ics prove that wa­ter­proof gloves don’t have to be chunky or cum­ber­some. They’re im­pres­sively weath­er­proof, and the mem­brane doesn’t pull out when re­mov­ing clammy hands, mak­ing them easy to get on and off. While the cut is only slightly pre-curved, the palm doesn’t bunch too badly when you’ve got your hands on the grips. The long cuff sits nicely un­der jacket arms and in­cludes a strip of the palm ma­te­rial to help you pull the glove over damp hands. Be­cause the palm is made from polyurethane (PU), it isn’t the grip­pi­est once your grips get wet. The touch­screen con­duc­tiv­ity isn’t very con­sis­tent ei­ther, which makes phone use frus­trat­ing. We’d also pre­fer it if the fin­ger­tips were a lit­tle less roomy. On the plus side, the mesh-ef­fect back­ing seems to add some in­su­la­tion, so while these may not be great in deep win­ter, they do of­fer de­cent warmth on wet, wild days on the hill. Re­flec­tive lo­gos add a touch of vis­i­bil­ity in the dark too. Tom www.sil­ver­fish-uk.com
