Anyone have winter gloves that are really happy with? - December 21, 2013, 03:09 PM

I've checked out a lot of gloves online and none have really convinced me that they'll meet my needs.

I'm looking for something that is non-heated, mostly leather, well-insulated but not bulky, good protection, ideally good water resistance and no more than $100. Got to be comfortable for 20-30 minutes at 35-40 degrees or better.

The only pair of winter gloves that I've been happy with...

RS Taichi RST 580 Gore-Tex Grand Winter Gloves





Gore-Tex, leather fingertips and palm, plastic knuckle guard, high gauntlet...

and the biggest plus the liners in the fingers are sewn in!!! So, when you take your hand out, you don't have to spend a half an hour trying to restuff the gloves (F-U Fieldsheer winter gloves)!

I went through several different sets of cold weather gloves when I lived in CO. I tried snowboard gloves, snowmobiling gloves, glove liners and one other set of motorcycle gloves. They all work crap compared to the Taichis.

The MSRP is $120...I found mine on sale, I'm sure if you hunt around, you can find them around a bill.

I wear kincos in the winter. They are a little bulky, but my hands get cold easily, so I don't have much choice there.

Something like $20, and warmer than any other gloves I've ever had. All leather. Crashed in them before, and they held up fine sliding on the palms at ~40 mph.

I have the Astars Vega Drystar gloves. They are warm enough for 30 minutes in the mid 30s. I am not happy with the "dry" part of things though.

I have an older model so they may have improved.

I wear the Held Twin Goretex 2 in 1. A little pricey, but worth it imo. They're on sale right now too.

+1, great gloves for short, lower temp rides. The index finger wiper blade is also amazing.

BMG thermosport gloves. Bought them at the Motorcycle Show last year. Great gloves, not to bulky for my Sportbike. http://www.britishmotorcyclegear.com...ort-gloves.asp

Definitely a contender. I have the BMG Discovery jacket.

The Tourmaster Winter Elites are really tough to beat, and I've seen them mentioned already. The only criticism I have of them is that they have no armor on the knuckles or wrists. That's where the FirstGear Carbon heated gloves kick ass, besides being freaking heated, of course.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

Gerbings heated winter gloves...but

They are expensive
To get your money's worth you have to have the 12v controller installed in your bike (easy to do...for the most part)
The Gerbings jacket comes pre-wired for use with gloves/pants so...instead of fishing wire thru the sleeves of your jacket it may be much easier to get the jacket and gloves from Gerbings...which is as I said....expensive.

Very well made...but expensive.

Seconded... And when it rains, there is a liner that you can pull out of the zippered pocket at the base. I feel like a TNMT when it rains!
