“The thinner glove is perfect for driving, tasks in the garden on cold mornings offering grip and protection during tasks. The grip of the glove is superb for handling the steering wheel and picking up items in the cold that may be covered in condensation. I tried them on my training evenings and while playing football. They keep the hands at a good temperature without sweating due to the breath ability of the material” Mark said of the Lite Contact range.

He went on to expand; “The thicker glove – Pro-Trainer – is great for the very cold days working in the garden, stable or garage. It offers protection to the hands when using garden implements or metal tools that could be very cold. The grip ensures good control of implements.”
Mark further explained the versatility of the products; “In my line of work, I deal with a lot of people who suffer from poor blood circulation in their hands. This problem tends to get worse in colder weather conditions. I understand that the gloves were developed for equestrian sports, but they are very much multipurpose and can be adapted to everyday activities. Both gloves are ideal for persons with painful hands, arthritic changes as they help to keep the heat in, yet the sweat out. I would be more than happy to recommend their use to any of my clients”
