Rating: 5 / 5
These are a real find. I was waiting for the BPL Gear Shop to get them back in stock and am glad I waited. My partner got a pair of gloves from another New Zealand supplier and although they are great they are just a bit thinner than the BPL PossumDown gloves, and I wouldn't trade mine for hers.
I would photograph them to show what they are like but they are black and will not photograph well enough to justify the effort.
First thing I notice about them that gives them a 5 rating is the softness and comfort, the picture at the Gear Shop really does not do them justice. They are so comfortable and immediately warm and warming that it is a pleasure to own and use them.
We will have to see how durable they are, but they appear to be very "strong" gloves that will last with care. Don't know about how they will handle hot pot handles yet, and may not even test them because they are so warm, so comfortable, and lightweight enough that I don't want to damage them.
This product is worth the price and a try if you are looking for a glove for freezing, near freezing, or sub freezing temperature.
