After reading the reviews of gloves here on WH I plumped for the Rab Latok ones - wind and waterproof. They also have a grip like a gecko.
Cheers sloosh! Missed that review, God knows how!! Will have a close look now though, but the Rab's are a wee bit out of my price range I'm afraid. Boy they look good though

Currently have a pair of these- can use the outer and liner separately or both together - I don't tend to like "normal" gloves as the lining tends stick to my hands and comes out esp in the cold - these solve that problem as the fleece glove is the liner.
Also, I use a normal fleece glove with a goretex outer mitt - the latter can be bought from army surplus type online shops for £10 - £15 and provide a waterproof outer (albeit in mitt format).

They weigh 94 grammes (XL). Claimed 'lightest waterproof'. There seem to be a lot of gloves in this category, but these where reasonably priced at £ 19. Durability??
I wear fingerless liner gloves underneath.

So warm you may fancy taking em off!
general windproof nice day gloves, any 2 buck pair of woolies will do
Scrambling over rocks - Garden gloves, leather work gloves, may not be the best of fits, but why spend 40 odd quid on technical gloves that get torn to shreds on rocks, i recommend cheap a chips gardening gloves, for scrambles - you will get them for 2 or 3 bucks in lots of places - easy to replace - easy to carry spares
