At this time of year you’re probably thinking about moving to long sleeves and maybe even full leg coverage, but chances are the first thing on your autumn list are full finger gloves. It’s a little early to go full winter, though, so a mid-level set of gloves that don’t boil your hands are a sensible purchase, and that’s what Giro have here.
The Blaze gloves offer a very good level of wind and rain protection for mild to colder conditions. They work really well in typical autumn conditions and managed to keep my hands warm and dry on changeable days.
One thing you’ll notice about the Blaze gloves as soon as you put them on is that the palms take a little while to wear in as initially they’re not all that supple. But after a few hours of use they’d moulded to my palms nicely and were far more comfortable.
