What have you bought that hasn't come up to expectations? Mine most recently is a pair of Rukka Virium gloves. I wanted some dependably waterproof summer gloves that would last and wouldn't suffer detached linings. Bought the Viriums back in the spring thinking you can't go far wrong with Rukka even if it does cost. They'd had only light dry weather use up until my trip to Scotland. First exposure to a couple of hours of heavy rain and my hands were wet. They're also very cold, even in summer, more so than a much cheaper pair of equally thin three season Held gloves gloves I've got. Also found I was getting numb thumbs and picking up vibration that I'd never noticed before with leather gloves. And now after less than six months light use the lining is letting go and one of the index fingers is starting to bunch. The only good thing I can say about them is you can use the sat-nav screen with them on and they dry quickly in the airing cupboard. Not what I expected of Rukka. Luckily I took a pair of four season Richa gloves with me to Scotland in case some of the early morning starts were a bit nippy (never got round to fitting heated grips) and they were perfect. Not too hot, totally waterproof, no vibration and half the price.
