Lidl were selling black non latex gloves, bit more durable than the other sort when working on the bike

3.60 for 100

Didn't have large, only medium and small, but mediums fitted me ok

I find vinyl gloves are the strongest, as you say latex are not very good and split very easily, and some people are allergic to latex as well.

Latex also degraded by petroleum products so when messing with oil and grease (normal reason for wearing gloves) the latex is attacked by them.

I always use nitrile gloves - non-latex, but with proper grip.

Bought one of these for colder weather riding as I always wear two long sleeved Thermal -T-shirts and then a thin/medium fleece lined jumper in the cold.

So good I've just bought another.Total Bargain at around 3.60,

But I also have a thermal long sleeved Turtle neck one as well

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mens-Ther...bFh21kNbden6VA

that really keeps the wind off the neck along with a Thin Bike balaclava.

I've found the Turtle neck one I bought.It costs a bit more Bib but is incredibly warm for it's thinness and it's Turtle neck comes right up so no wind can get through under the Lid

14.99.
