This is the week when it seems that Winter has finally hit. The Midlands, where I live, has a yellow weather warning in place at least up until Thursday, with a 60% chance of snow. Mornings are extremely cold and frosty, night time is exactly the same. It is the perfect time to be trying out some products that positively love this weather. I am talking about some products from the Heat Holders range.
I am a huge fan of Heat Holders products, which I have reviewed and featured on the blog before. (You can check out previous reviews here and here. This time around I was sent a couple of different products, some of the men’s Workforce Socks that offer warm and protection for the feet. I was also sent something completely different, a very glamorous pair of Heat Holders ladies Leather gloves, that are beautifully presented in a gift box. I was excited to see if the products would live up to the standards of the previous Heat Holders ranges.
Mens Heat Holders Workforce Socks
My husband Peter works outside a lot as part of his job doing loft conversions. In Summer this can mean a great suntan, but in Winter, especially in bitter conditions, this can be a very cold and uncomfortable time. Pete was happy to try out the Workforce socks, which promise to combine the original thermal power of a 2.3 tog rating with a reinforced heel and toe for heavy-duty usage.
The socks are a great buy, especially if you work outside. They are warm, and snug due to the elastication around the top, but they do not sweat the feet – they heat, but do not overheat. The reinforced toe area offers extra protection for that most vulnerable part of the foot, and these fit snugly under work boots. Pete has been wearing these since going back to work after the Christmas break, and they have already shown that they wash well. The soft fluffy lining gives them a luxurious feel that makes them a treat for your feet.
Ladies Heat Holders Leather Gloves
Part of the problem with warm, thermal items is that they can sometimes lack style, and gloves are a key item when it comes to this problem. Leather gloves look stunning and elegant, but they can be very cold to wear, espeically if the wind can go through the opening at the top, leaving fingers like a block of ice. Heat Holders has come up with a solution to this with a beautiful pair of black leather gloves that combines style with warm.
The gloves are beautiful, with a pretty bow detail on the front that gives them a retro look. So far, so fashion. But then we look at the lining, which has the super fluffy Heat Holders thermal fur style lining that makes your hands feel warm and snug. What I also really liked about the gloves was the knitted cuffs which hold the gloves snugly to the wrist, this stops all the warmth escaping, and stops wind and cold getting into your hands.
The gloves are beautifully boxed, and are a great gift idea for someone with a January birthday, or even with Valentine’s Day coming up next year. At £24.99 these are really reasonably priced for genuine leather gloves.
