I am going to need some decent gloves for the colder weather as I suffer from Reynauds.

Any suggestions for ones that do good job and are also waterproof to a certain extent?

Should I be looking for a fingerless pair or a normal pair and just cut the finger/thumbs off as required?

Thanks

I use these if you can get a pair as they seem not be on the sealskin site any more

Have a look at motorcycle gloves as they are thicker for winter and remove which ever fingers are necessary. i also suffer.

A few tips which might help - wear a hat as it will keep you warmer all over, put petroleum jelly on your hands to keep them warm, if you cut just the tips off gloves you will have less skin uncovered, two pairs of gloves for very wet days is a good idea and change over to the dry ones after they get waterlogged.

You can't wear gloves if you're trying to deliver letters, you can't split the post apart.

Man up and wear no gloves.

I'd love not to wear gloves, unfortunately due to a medical condition I need to, sometimes even in summer.

Thanks for the helpful reply though ;)

You can with those blue ones with the pimples on the fingers that RM issue, they are thin enough to still feel the mail and the pimples allow you to grip and sort the letters. Only problem is your pda, you'd have to cut the finger tip off one of the gloves to be able to press the screen.

Or buy a conductive pen type device they cost 50p before brexit.
