The best part is that it's always there, not hanging on a peg back in the garage because you were sure it wouldn't rain today!
I had a pair similar to those back in 1980 or so. They worked brilliantly well, but I haven't seen anything similar in the UK since. Another advantage was that I used to cross the Humber Bridge every day, and had to pay a toll of 50p. The little zipped pocket that the over glove fitted in was ideal for the coin. I could pay without even taking the gloves off.

Thanks for the tip, will look these out.
