    Winter gloves recommendations?

    I'm starting another season of winter riding and am looking for recommendations. I've been using the Amazon Ninja Ice gloves for the warmer temps (down to about 25-30) but I'm riding in colder temps than this.

    What are you guys having success with? Should I be considering pogies?

    I am partial to Dakine Excursions. I bought one pair a few years ago, they are awesomely warm (the liners are 64% wool), they breath very well, and my hands stay dry. I bought a second pair after a year, not because the first pair was worn, just because they were exactly what I wanted in a cold weather glove, so it was worth having a pair in reserve.

    Pogies are hard to beat if youíre riding fat bike in the snow or when itís super cold, thereís just no way to keep warm without them below zero.

    My normal winter riding temps are 10-30 degrees and Iím happy with a sort of modular system. Merino liner gloves with some OR soft shell/leather shells. Keeps me warm enough to start and then I can take off the liners and keep the shells on once my body temp is up and circulation is going.

    Or just buy an ebike and put some Moto heated grips on it.

    Trigger mitts/3-finger mitts, assuming you have one finger brakes.

    For instance, an FTP RX3 Pro:

    With the spring liner (index finger is too stiff with the stock liner IMO, even after treating the leather):

    I'm sure there are other choices, but the trigger mitt is the key concept.

    My hands get cold easily. I ride until the snow makes desperate skiing possible. Lobster mitts work well for me. The Pearl Izumi Amfib Lobster is quite warm.

    I'm thinking about trying the 45nrth 4 finger gloves. My current main cold riding gloves are Pocs. Pretty warm, pretty good control and dexterity. My main complaints are the wrist cuffs are big and open and kind of let warm air out. Also pretty expensive if you're paying retail.

    I really like my PI amfib lite gloves for cool weather but the full insulated ones are a little too bulky with the gel pad in the palm plus the liner isn't attached to the glove and pulls out when you take your gloves off on a ride so you have to fight to get the fingers back in and it's really dumb and frustrating, plus they aren't warmer than the pocs. And the gel pad is really stiff and feels like shit and I don't like pads in my gloves anyway.

    I recently got some of trek's gloves to try out- the velocis softshell "waterproof" gloves. I was expecting them to be a little thinner and lighter and more of a spring glove but they seem to be the same as the winter cycling gloves but more water resistant. They're ok, not great. after handling some wet plastic stakes and tape last weekend doing some cyclocross course setup I could feel water in them so not "waterproof." kinda bulky and harder to do things with your fingers, doesn't seem as warm as the pocs. Keep your wrists covered and warmer though.

    Light liners plus my old ski glove shells seem to be my current best setup for really cold. Probably should consider getting some bar mitts but I feel like when it's that cold I should just do something else.

    Just go with the pogies. Once you have them installed you will wonder why you even asked this question. Can store snacks and spare gloves in them too. I ride with a light xc ski glove all winter long.

    Work gloves (like Mechanix) for chilly weather. Pogies when it gets COLD.

    I have some warmer bike gloves from Pearl Izumi - they're better than ski gloves because they breathe a little bit more, but my hands will still get sweaty. With pogies I can wear summer gloves and be comfortable.

    Recommend carrying some disposable latex type gloves with for emergency use. They'll add enough warmth to get you out of the ride without frostbite.

    Great suggestions. For those riding with pogies - which are you using?

    For flat bar riding, I just have some ATV pogies. Fleeced lined, work just fine and might have been $25 at a ranch supply type store.

    For drop bars, get the neoprene ones from Bar Mitts.

    I have some simple neoprene pogies from Amazon, for mountain bike handlebars (road bar ones are shaped differently). Inexpensive.

    Pogies with regular riding gloves. If it is wicked cold then pogies with hand warmers inside.

    I plan to put these on my christmas list. They make some great looking bags, and the flat/drop bar compatibility would be great.

    Maybe a better recommendation for schindlerpiste, but I got the pricey https://www.45nrth.com/products/cobrafist#/ for a gift, and only wear lightweight gloves no matter the outside temp.
    Well maybe I'm the faggot America

    If you ain't looking for chi-chi pogies were really easy to make IME

    I turned a section of car inner tub inside out, sewed it shut with fish line, cut a hole in the side to slip my hand thru, I kept the hole open by sewing some electical house wire into the rim, turned it back inside out and strapped it all to the bar

    Its hard to find a car inner tube nowdays and actualy they were kind of heavy but If you got some old rubberized rain pants I betcha that would work

    IME no lining was needed with just my normal Motorcycle leather riding gloves I could ride 2 hrs in the rain cuz the pogie kept the glove dry and the wind off my hands

    I did too till I got the expensive pogies and now itís just a lot nicer for shifting and braking to have that dexterity.

    Iím sure theyíre nice, if you ride where itís consistently cold.
    Itís pretty moderate here and it fluctuates between 15-50, within a couple of hours.
    Plus I have a couple of different bikes I ride in the winter, so changing gloves is just easier.

    This is me. A lot of the days it's multiple times per day.

    I am holding out on pogies for a number of reasons, probably most because I hate the way they look. I have very little bike fashion considerations, I run unmatched tires, hardware, I couldn't care less about scratches, etc. etc.

    I just hate the way pogies look on a bike.

    I may have to break down, although I ride a variety of bikes depending on the conditions so I'd probably need multiple pairs.. which just brings me back to having nice gloves that I use for other activities too.

    I also like being able to regulate my temperature a bit by removing my gloves, it can be the difference between sweating or not, especially in my terrain where we have lots of shorter climbs.

    Not sure where everyone is located but here in the PNW a lot of our winter riding is not below freezing but usually pretty wet. I just picked up 3 different pairs of black diamond climbing gloves and like them a lot so far. Climbing gloves are great because they are pretty lightweight but also very streamlined and fit snugly.

    Who care about how pogies look?
    If you're riding in the winter, you're automatically a freak. Embrace the kookfest. Anyone who gets it is already kickass and doesn't give a fuck.
    Judgemental twerps who don't get it can go to hell.

    Black diamond?
    Climbing gloves?
    Do tell, product name?

    Been riding later into the winter more and more lately; and earlier in late winter/early spring as well.
    Been struggling with cold hands. Testing out new gloves currently. Mebbe just need pogies.
