I've got a tight budget this summer due to getting married, and there are a few things i need for the summer.

One of which are some mitts. I've put aside £15 for a pair. Ive listed a few ive seen on CR and Wiggle. Which would you all reccomend?

Endura Might Mitt
Endura Rapido Mitt
Mavic Espoir
Altura Airstream

Any other opinions welcome!

    Altura Gravity
    Gore Contest II
    Altura Airstream

    Out of the list so far I'd go with the Gore ones. Decent medium padding for the money.

    best I tried on recently - and I tried on everything! - were Gore Power

  • How do the sizes work with Gore? On wiggle there is a size guide but its small, medium larger etc. whereas in the buy now option the sizes are numbered..

    For Gore gloves the sizes are as follows:

    Small 7.8-8.3"
    Medium 8.3-8.7"
    Large 8.7-9.2"
    XL 9.2-9.7"
    XXL 9.7-10.2"
    XXXL 10.2-10.6"

    Weird I know...

    Measure by wrapping a tape measure around your hand, the braod part just below your fingers.

    Edit to add, small = 6 and so on

    If you can tolerate the design from a style point of view, prendas has 2 pairs for a tenner deal running on their own brand mitts, which is an excellent price for an excellent product.

    Slightly less stylistically challenged variants are a little more but still great value.
