A last Look – Sealskinz Cold Weather Glove

Sealskinz Cold Weather Glove

Review by Arnie

Time for me to complete this review for the Sealskinz Cold Weather Glove under the unique conditions we are all experiencing. My outdoor activities have continued but with changes like covering my nose and mouth with a bandanna and keeping my distance from others. I reduced food shopping to every 2-3 weeks, but I continued to take local walks. I wore Sealskinz gloves when temperatures were below the mid 60’s.

The lower temperature was about 25 F and the upper range was in the high 60’s. My walks were in my neighborhood and were from 60 to 90 minutes. One part of my walk is along Silver Lake. There are no houses along this stretch of the lake and the view is always good.

I was not surprised when my hands were comfortable at the lower temperatures. Ii surprised me that my hands were still comfortable when the temperatures were in the upper 60’s. At some point during the walk I could feel sweat rolling down my calves. I could feel the warmth on the back of my hands caused by the intensity of the sun on the black surface of the gloves. I wore a black shirt that day and my back felt like it was burning.

My back felt like it was burning, yet I was not feeling anywhere near that hot on the back of my hand. The outside of the glove felt hot to the touch. I think this speaks well for the insulating properties of these gloves.

HOKA One One provided the Tor Summit Mid WP men’s boots for review purposes.

The roller coaster weather patterns have continued during this test period. We have had several snow storms with snowfalls ranging from a few inches to 8 inches in places. The temperature ranged from a low of -10 F to a high in the upper 50’s. I now have had a chance to try the HOKA One One Tor Summit Mid WP men’s boots in cold, icy, and snowy conditions. My daily walks and weekly group hikes have continued during this period.  To read more please click here.
