Following the success of our Aquafleece top, combining the warmth of a fleece inner layer with the wind protection of a Polyurathene outer, we wanted to utilise these same qualities for our new Winter gloves. We have been working hard to further develop the material by increasing the stretch capabilities needed for a comfortable glove. The result is the all new Rooster AquaPro glove with new longer lasting ´Super Grip´ coated palm and velcro strap fastener around the wrist. This ´top of the range´ glove virtually eliminates the wind chill experienced with neoprene gloves whilst still giving the user the control and feel that you would expect from a top product.
QUICK TIP: If you have got them wet on saturday and you are sailing on sunday - pour warm water into them and put your hands in - they will be toasty all day!
´January training in Weymouth brr! But thanks Y&Y for the Mini Test on Rooster Aquafleece gloves (January 7 2006 issue), brought some at the London Boat Show and headed straight down to Weymouth to train with the rest of the GBR development squad. At last a pair of gloves that keep the fingers warm, grip well and aren´t too bulky. Well done Rooster.´
