Looking for gloves for the cold weather - November 8, 2007, 08:40 AM

I am looking for gloves to wear when riding to work in the morning. Anyone got any ideas as to who makes a good cold weather glove?

I just ordered a set of these after trying on a pair that my friend has. Plenty warm, but not too thick so you still have a good feel for the controls. $61 + shipping.

Those were exactly the gloves Tony suggested to me, Tom! I may get me a pair as well for early spring/late fall riding. Last weekend, 'Chelle and I rode in Erie, PA, and needed gloves. I bought a pair of winter gloves from a Harley store. They are VERY warm, but my hands get a little tired because they are so thick and don't provide as much control/feel as a thinner glove. Since my riding in the winter constists mostly of commuting, I am fine with losing some control in exchange for warmth. The Harley gloves were about $90, but kept me warm this morning.

Kenneth, I have some that I think are warmer than those (at least they look like it). I'll text you what I have tonight, because I can't remember the brand. They're toasty though. I bought two pairs last year (one for JayBoom) and they're in the $60 range. A little bulky, but control is still decent.

I've used these gloves for a year now. They're as waterproof as most gloves get. For me, they're comfortable down to around 30 degrees for an hour. After that, your hands will start going slighly numb in a few minutes. They feel pretty thin for cold gloves, but take a bit getting used to when switching from normal weather gloves. They advertise gel in the palms, but mine went 'flat' too quick to make a difference. I'm very happy with them and am not looking for a replacement.

I've got a pair of Held Ice Breaker gloves. They're reasonably warm but definitely bulky. Haven't tried them in the rain yet.

Yeah...I was checking them out that day too Kenneth. That's why I ordered a pair for myself. I've got a very similar pair of Joe Rocket cold weather gloves now that are very warm, but they're a little too "thick" for my taste (I'm giving those to John who's not a wuss like me and rides in the REALLY cold weather). I don't ride in weather below 45 - 50 degrees, so the Nitrogen gloves should be plenty warm for me.

Tell you what, I was thinking about your old gloves all the way into work today. It has definitely cooled off, and I felt wussy.
