Castelli Diluvio Deluxe glove

Latest Deal


On the face of it the Diluvio is an outstanding winter glove, exceedingly well cut and constructed with a long gauntlet for wrist coverage, palm-gripper and a nose-wipe.

What’s not to like? Cold hands, that’s what, and having had three people in the office try them, everyone suffered the same problem: 20 minutes in and our hands were freezing.

The cut is clever but somewhat over-aggressive as it holds fingers in a fist with the seams positioned right on the fingertips.


If Diluvio is warm enough for you then it’s probably a great 
glove but for the rest of us it’s 
not a winner.
