Theres probably different variants of thinsulate quality. Primark sell thinsulate gloves which have the thinsulate lining inside - which appears to be more or less some sort of felt. Looking at some dearer thinsulate gloves ~£30 the lining is much more robust

iv got cheap £2 ones from primark and there very good whilst not so robust but very warm and good water resistance thanks to thinsulate.

Your running jokes are far from funny zekespah

Do they make you thin then ?

Can also be used for bosoms.

One man's hobby was running, he spent all his weekends on the park trails, paying no attention to weather. One Sunday, early in the morning, he went to the park as usual. It was still dark, cold and raining, so he decided to return back to his house. He came in, went to his bedroom, undressed and laid near his wife. "What terrible weather today honey," he said to her. "Yes," she replied "but my idiot husband still went running!"

Who wants thin bosoms?

Point proved!

Do these come with long johns?

Good stuff +heat

Congratulations zekespah, you are now the first user on my ignore list!

:-o

Too many, I've seen more of them than the Flame Deer!

Beware! They are not 3M as you may imagine. I bought the gloves and have to say I felt cold on the gloves than without. Then I went and bought a proper 3M ones for £3 from Peacocks which I feel much better. You get what you pay for.

Excellent! Merry scouser Xmas!

I think Zekespah has a valid point. You never know whos wearing whos gloves once your running.

Im guessing they are fake, I paid £6 for one from asda living. (Over the odds i know) but if these are real this is super hot as these are real good quality. Voted hot anyway as £1 for a thermal hat is good!

mine too

Nice to see Stan Boardman making a comeback with the same jokes that people were bored to death with 20 years ago! I think you are deluded if you think you are remotely funny.

Wow I need one! It's just to cold to get to my local shop

unlikely to be fakes - uk has pretty strict copyright laws that are enforced, as a uk company poundland wouldnt risk it

the thinsulate gloves i bought from Next last year for a fiver were diabolical. the inside lining came undone after a week. if these are the same they aint worth a quid

They're just thinner than the Primark ones which is double the price which I use as a teapot cozy to brew my latest concoction blend of leaves. I am going off strong tea and mixing in a lot of Chinese Jasmine lately with a little Earl Grey and Darjeeling, lol. BTW lol is so girly, should stop, lol. Also Poundland & 99pStore sometimes have buffs and if you're lucky the semi-thick wooly versions, all of which cost about £12 to £15 online or in gear shops. Those wild campers amongst you know what it is. I have tons and always have a thin buff instead of a bandana in my pocket for rain, wind, cold, anonymity, etc. Sometimes they have the rare folding baseball caps too. buffwear.co.uk/pag…php

Good deal for a quid. Laziest description I've ever seen by an op though.

You're right, they'd be worth at least £ 2.50...... you got mugged off in Next.

I have a pair of these gloves. They ae no good for this really cold weather, the cold gets through them in minutes.

As someone else pointed out, these are not 3M thinsulate but a lower quality, and only just worth a pound.
This is not really a hot deal in my opinion, as it's been possible to buy thinsulate hats for a pound in some shops for ages now. The wholesale price is around 60p so even market stalls should be selling these cheaper quality ones for a pound.

It's not working mate

I've got a pair of the gloves and I reckon they are well worth a quid - good fit and keep my hands warm no bother and I'm in one of the colder parts of the uk.

Nonsense -- the photo on Poundland's website even clearly shows the 3M logo. As others have said the UK has strict trademark and counterfeiting laws and Poundland's directors would soon be paying a big fine / in prison if this was not 3M.

I have to agree, I can't stand it when people post a deal for a Beatles CD then copy and paste information telling me that they were a band from Liverpool and blah blah bleedin blah

But since the subject came up

Thinsulate is a trademark of the 3M Corporation, for a type of synthetic fiber thermal insulation used in clothing. The word is a portmanteau of thin and insulate. The material was first sold in 1979.

Thinsulate fibers are about 15 micrometres in diameter, which is thinner than the polyester fibers normally used in insulation for clothing such as gloves or winter jackets. Advertising material for thinsulate suggests that thinsulate is more effective due to the increased density of fibers with decreased size of fibers compared with more traditional insulation.[1] Like most insulation materials, the gaps between fibers not only reduce heat flow, but also allow moisture to escape. The insulation properties are beneficial for retaining some of the heat produced by the body for comfortable warmth while the moisture produced, e.g. by sweating, is supposed to evaporate.
The manufacturer claims that, for a given thickness of material, Thinsulate provides 1 to 1.5 times the insulation of duck down, while being much less water-absorbent and much more resistant to crushing. Based on an insulating value for down of 4.8 Clo per 1.1-inch (28 mm),[2] that would mean Thinsulate provides about 6.5 Clo per inch (i.e., an imperial R-value of 5.75 per inch).[original research?]
Materials Safety Data Sheets from the manufacturer show that different varieties of Thinsulate are made from different mixtures of polymers, but most are primarily Polyethylene terephthalate or a mixture of Polyethylene terephthalate and polypropylene. Other materials in some include polyethylene terephthalate-Polyethylene isophthalate copolymer and acrylic.

History

In 1979, Thinsulate insulation was introduced, marketed as providing "warmth without bulk". Marketing material suggests it retains its insulating ability even in damp conditions.


Merry Christmas!

I bought a pair of the gloves but they didnt fit, I'm a size ten and it said one size fits all. So I had to go and buy some new socks for £4.99 from Waterstones, very disappointed.
