Re: Do you use driving gloves?

I the winter, yes. My late Dad was a Police driving instructor (retired in 1976) and I use a pair of his old Brown gloves. The are lovely ans are still in great condition.

I used to have a really nice pair of Dent's driving gloves (tight fitting, two colour leather) amd quite similar to the 90 euro masser gloves but can't find them anymore

In winter, in the Spider maybe sometimes. But not normally I'm still at an age where blood ciculates to my hands...

Re: Do you use driving gloves?

I have arthritic hands so does that qualify me to wear them and have a reason to look "uncool"

Re: Do you use driving gloves?

I really like driving gloves, I have made (yes knitted, how cool is that) arm warmers with a hole for my thumbs which I can put gloves on underneath.

Sorry Big Foot, the picture didn't load but if they are how I picture Maz. would design gloves, I would buy them.

There's a thing they wear in this neck of the woods thats a bit like what your describing - except you can keep your whole body warm with it not just your arms..... it's called a Jumper - they come in all differant size's and you can get one's for men and women... I believe there a new invention

Erm.... I guess so....

But then again other than gloves will keep your hands warm, they don't help you tighten the grip on the wheel.

That's why I said I wear them sometimes in the Spider, when roof down, my hands will cool.

In your new 159 Simon, there should be no such issues....

Re: Do you use driving gloves?

I wear gloves when driving in the winter although they are just ordinary gloves, not specifically driving gloves. When driving the Monti it was essential to wear them as the steering wheel was very slippery and as it didn't have power steering, you needed all the purchase you could muster on the wheel. Otherwise you were forever slipping off the wheel, especially when parking
