Very trick, but not cheap, but quality never is.

You can go more 'winter 3-season' (e.g. the Warm N Dry which I used in colder climates i.e. England, where I was, vs New Orleans, where I am now, and had no issues throughout one of the worst winters on record), or 'summer 3-season' in their range. But regardless - having worked with the Held family and visited their HQ in Bavaria, I have absolutely no reservations in recommending their wares.

Hope that helps,


Held Warm and Dry are my choice. They are a tad warm for 60 degree plus but I still wear them when it's going to be wet. I am a fan of Held build quality and have no issue with the price. They perform, period. I carry them as a backup in the shoulder seasons and they have never let me down. One nice feature is that no matter what the temp, when you pull them off the lining stays in the glove where it belongs.
