    This. Pogies are the shit, Iím convinced you ride hard enough you can warm up a sandwich in there.

    Apparently I do. There are very few things I care about form wise, hell I've been going bald since my teen years, pogies are just something that turn me off. The funny thing is, it's 100% me, I will rarely see other people when I ride and my wife quite often laughs at my purely function chosen outfits as I leave the house, so I'm not winning any fashion contests regardless.

    The one practical reason I have is for heat management. I am always trying to not sweat and being able to cool down my hands helps lower my body temperature. I also don't want my hands to sweat, I've found that eventually you stop sweating and start freezing.

    The real solution is probably pogies and better (more specific) clothing. I do have a pair of seal skin gloves that will keep my hands warm as cold as it gets, but they're not practical unless it's below -20 due to the sweating issue.

    I ordered the pogies. I used to paddle whitewater quite a bit - even in the winter in Montana when rivers would run. Pogies were awesome even in ridiculously cold conditions. I can't imagine it too difficult to dial in the liner gloves for different temp ranges...

    On the opposite end of the winter glove spectrum what works well for 35-45 and raining? Semi warm and really waterproof in a bright color for my commute with good durability. Was looking at the showers pass knit waterproof but they have poor reviews for durability. Same with the enduras. What is decent in this space?

    When itís truly cold, wet and miserable, these are the answer for climbing and skiing, so I expect theyíd also be great for riding:

    Link is broken for me...

    I've enjoyed neoprene fishing gloves (Glacier Glove and others) for wet riding. They are cheap, flexible, grippy, and warm.

    The Showa polyurethane are probably worth trying but might be super sweaty. Are the neoprene fishing gloves too hot for a 40 degree day?

    Would also like to hear recommendations for something similar, but for MTB (needs to be super thin and grippy, but stay dry). I've got Fox Water gloves that do OK while pedaling but as soon as I start descending, the spray wets them through starting at the fingertips and working back. Specialized Neoshell gloves don't have a grippy brake fingertip, and for some reason there's no Neoshell over the entire palm. So the backs of your hands stay dry but the palms soak through immediately.

    If you're not going hard 40F would be ok, I'd say. They are not at all breathable, though, so going harder or in warmer temps you'll get clammy quickly. I haven't found a great solution for rain in 45+F, other than just having somewhat cold hands without gloves.

    The Showas are breathable. Other than that they look sort of stupid, theyíre a legit high performance glove, and theyíre cheap.

    Right, breathable like Gore Tex is... breathable? Anyway, I still think they're the best option.

    Free the powder has been really good for me and mine. Mittens are warm and the gloves have held up well. Recently was given a pair of Truck. Not a fan of those. I always have two pairs of kinko in the back of each car so I donít lose my shit when we get to the resort and one of the kids left theirs at the house.

    I bought the showas but havenít tested them yet because I have a stupid head cold so didnít want to ride in 40 and raining. I think they will be great for my use case and the price point is also nice.

    What FTP glove are you riding in?
    Iím kinda bummed they stopped selling bike gloves. And Iím not convinced their snow gloves have that ďdexterous as fuckĒ quality that allows me to ride winter bike park with my Hestra VCFs.
