VELAZZIO Waterproof Breathable Ski Gloves

These new Ski style gloves from VELAZZIO arrived simply packaged in a ziplock bag with no product box or other marketing information. This is a pity as had they been nicely boxed they would have been all the more attractive as a gift can easily have been sold at a higher price point.

The gloves, which are perhaps the thickest and warmest I have ever worn, are nicely made from waterproof Polyester DWR Coated material (whatever that is) with a waterproof Fan-Tex membrane and a fleecy 3M Thinsulate lining. I can see no sign of loose stitching or any other manufacturing shortfall and they certainly seem well made.

The gloves have a velcro belt which fastens just below the palm and a drawstring fastener just below the wrist. Each has a small zipped pocket on the back large enough to hold a key or credit card. A sizing guide is helpfully provided on the Amazon product page and the Large size I chose is a snug but not uncomfortable fit on my normal to large size male hands. If you like a looser fit or have large hands than get XL. The gloves although heavily padded as surprisingly giving and flexible when worn and do not feel as constricting as many similar gloves have been for me in the past.

The gloves are warm. well padded and comfortable and although perhaps there are better gloves on the market I doubt if you will find them for less than £20. Priced at just £19.99 on Amazon with a current additional £3.00 checkout voucher you are not going to find a much better buy than this if you need a pair of budget-priced but decent quality padded skiing type gloves.
