    Cold weather gloves?

    (Apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere, but I searched and didn't come up with anything)

    Anyone have recommendations for riding gloves that will keep my hands decently warm when its between 20-40F out? Don't need them to be waterproof, but wind resistance is obviously key. Would like to maintain dexterity, but understand that it will need to be compromised somewhat. The info on the web is pretty weak, so was hoping that you all may have some thoughts. Thanks much

    I've been really happy with my Tasco Dawn Patrol gloves. They're more of a cool weather glove; I wear them between 30-50 degrees and they're just warm enough with barely any bulk. I have another pair of very cold weather Pearl Izumi's but I often grab these and sacrifice a little hand warmth for the dexterity of a regular bike glove.

    Because I'm a pro-level loser/destroyer of winter riding gloves, I just get the Head water/wind proof gloves from Costco. They're cheap and work well down into the 20s. If it's colder than that, I'm typically not riding.
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

    I've been using a couple different pairs of Holmes Winter work gloves the past few winters, Costco has carried two different versions, one with leather palms, the other synthetic. I've been amazed at how dry my hands stay, no clamminess from sweat at all. about $25 for a two pack if I recall correctly. Here's a pic of one versionName:  holmes.jpg

    I generally ride outside down to about 20* and these days mostly Mtb, generally run a bit hot. Least dexterity to most over many years of not particularly snowy PA winter miles.

    Sugoi thermal winter 5 finger gloves, think a relatively light winter softshell ski glove. COLD road rides and Mtn rides, including snow rides. Windproof, thermal/decently warm. Sometimes paired with a summer MTB glove liner for extra warmth. 20s-30s
    Can't find a link, but these are generally warmer style of most brand gloves.

    Specialized Deflect non-H20 glove (looks like Trail thermal replaces these?) - these fit really tight so can't fit anything under them, but are good for cold (mid 30s) road/gravel rides, rely on working pretty hard to keep warm. Windproof softshell, not warm.

    Pearl Izumi Thermal lite, thin softshell - use these layered with a summer/mid-weight MTB glove, work great as an easy on/off layer. Decently windproof, breathe better than Spec Deflect. 30s-40s always bring another glove to layer on top or ditch if I get hot.

    Hand Up Gloves winter - looks like these are discontinued, but are a great cool weather Mtb glove in the 40s+. Great dexterity try to wear these as much as possible and will often switch from one of the above to these as I get warmed up riding.

    I'm really happy with my 7iDP Arctic gloves. Looks like the current iteration is called the Chill

    Right now I have

    gore c5 infinium: https://www.gorewear.com/us/en-us/c5...-gloves-100501

    I got these because my PI softshell lite gloves were a touch too small and they didn't have any in XL. The gores are pretty good but could be a touch warmer. The PI lites have a little more material on the back and had been my favorite cool weather gloves.

    poc thermal gloves https://na.pocsports.com/products/thermal-glove

    These are expensive and I wish the wrist cuffs weren't just wide and open. I feel like that lets warm air out of your gloves. But otherwise they are pretty nice and very warm and can handle low 30s - high 20s. If it's 40 they're too much.

    I kind of want to find something for in between, and then figure out what to do when it's really cold. I have the clothes and good boots for riding when it's like low 20s but the hands are an issue. Ski glove shells over liners with heat packs stuffed in them worked ok.

    Oh also I just put on some carbon brake levers and haven't noticed my index fingers getting cold lately.

    I'ts been just either side of 0C which is too cold for mtn biking with riding gloves so I'm just wearing some BD ski gloves they even got the full cuff, I'm on an e bike so the display sez I'm averaging 13kph probably faster & more windy than rididng an acoustic bike, not as g=fast as road but I am going higher & colder

    Reynauds here, so pogies and medium weight gloves. Nice dexterity and plenty warm. Can go regular mtb glove if it becomes too hot. No problem getting the hands out quickly when needed. Just like SPDs you learn how to escape.

    Also look at xc skiing gloves. Generally dexterous and not too warm.

    Welding gloves. Snow seal the shit outta them in front of a fire and they're supple AF. Open cuff but that is good, lets heat out when youre lightly dressed but if you have a coat on it blocks the heat escape. I use them 0*c to -15 or 20*c (32 - ?f)

    I have been using these the past couple years. They are warm and really just feel like summer gloves just warmer.

    Yep.
    These Hestra's are a bit spendy, but are the best balance of dexterity and warmth. Most warm gloves, work gloves, etc. are too bulky

    Those are great and I use them between 30 and 50 deg. Once it drops into the 20s, I need something a bit warmer... which I don't have because I basically stop biking at that point.

    I'm about to buy these for nordic and they would probably work well in the 25-40 range. https://www.hestragloves.us/windstop...er-black-print

    I've been using these for years for commuting, touring, and nordic stuff. The windstopper is great and my hands have always stayed warm. Only issue is the touchscreen thumb/forefinger part comes off pretty easily but I don't use that so I don't mind.

    back in the day when i was broke teenager i made pogies out of an old car innertube for motorcycle riding in rainy Vancover

    I took an 18 " section of inner tube, sew one end shut with fish line, cut a hole for the hand in that end, sew a piece of electrical house wire into the edge of the hole with fishline to keep it open and strap the pogie to the bars with a cable tie, the rubber was water proof so it kept the gloves dry and I could easily get my hands in and out

    while i was at it I made a tool pouch by sewing an end shut on a section of inner tube, it all cost zero

    Ninja Ice are my faves, tough, waterproof palm/breathable back. Great for skinning as well.

    4 for 14$? I got ripped off, they were 11$ at the ACE. Oh well, $11 a year is a reasonable glove budget.

    I didn't read well, 4 for 14 equals two pairs. Still a bargain. They showed up yesterday and seem great.

    Quite, I would think. I wear a large and my wife a medium, and we're not especially big people. Large is a nice snug fit for me.
