New to the grimy world of shoe coverings are the GripGrab Orca All Season Overshoes, a lightweight offering to complement their deep winter Hammerhead overshoe. It aims to be a covering for the spring rain and spray - perfecting timing for a review.
With so many options to cover your feet, picking the best one for you can present a challenge. The Orca is a thin neoprene shoe covering for when the weather is fresh but not freezing; too cold or wet for a oversock. A slick finish to the overshoe - like a wetsuit - means it is wind and waterproof.
GripGrab's Windster Cap is a good option for winter riding. Keeping your head and ears warm can be a challenge when cycling at this time of year and the Windster has a windproof front panel with good insulation around the head that should give you a head start (sorry) when it comes to staying warm.
The GripGrab Hammerhead Winter Overshoes have been rock solid in winter weather with their coated neoprene construction doing an unbelievable job of keeping the weather on the outside, and not in my shoes where it usually ends up after a couple of hours in the wind and rain.
The GripGrab Urban Softshell Gloves are possibly the best winter gloves I have ever used.
GripGrab is a Danish company, they've been around for a couple of years, and now the online retailer Wiggle is bringing them into the UK. They only make gloves and other accessories like overshoes and hats, and their range is comprehensive. There's a glove for most conditions and weather types.
