Who Has a Good Selection of Gloves in Gaithersburg or Herndon Areas? - November 12, 2011, 01:58 PM

I have a set of sz 9 (Lg) Held Air Stream gloves and once its in the 40's I'm getting cold fingers. Love these gloves best fitting gloves I've ever had.

Went to Battleys last night, looked at some Held Steve II's and some Spidi's. All were either too loose or too tight. If I can't find anything better I might go back and get those Spidi's.

I live in Gaithersburg, work in Herndon, who in those areas have a decent selection of in-stock gloves?

My budget is probably topped out on the $160 Held's.

I'm looking for gloves that have some protection, not overly road warrior-ish & flashy, $160-ish tops. Not looking for super cold wether gloves, just non-venilated gloves I can ride with in late Fall & earlier Spring cooler temps. The bike gets pretty much parked Dec-March.

Who has the better in-stock selection in/around Gaithersburg & Herndon areas?

Called RAM, they said they had little...

Gerbing's. I tried winter gloves, I tried heated grips, then I got a set of $120 Gerbing heated gloves... then a heated vest, I am in love, worth ever single penny every time I ride.

if wind resistant liners fit, they make a world of difference.

^ latex/ nitrile gloves are a cheap effective windproof liner. And they fit under anything.

DO not use latex gloves. Over a ride your fingers will sweat and then freeze. Get heated grips! Best 40 bucks you will ever spend. I also use Held Freezer gloves. Had them 2 years now! BTW I am a Held whore. 6 Pairs right now.

Have never had that happen... wear tight fitting ones. Yeah your hands might get a little bit clammy because they don't breathe but whatevs it's cheap and effective.

Agree with Dodge 100%
Plastic non-breathing liners are a big "no no."

I use a silk glove liner and alpinestar all weather textile glove.
Works great!

Gota breath and not sweat. Thats the secret.
Side note: There was a spot I used to hunt when I was about 19. I would hike in about a mile. No matter how many layers of socks I would freeze my toes off, and I was wearing -40 Sorel boots. By the time I was 21, I finally learned. I would hike in, then take off my boots, remove my socks (a sinlge cotton pair), and replace my socks with a fresh dry wool pair. BAM! Toasty down to -15 for hours in that stand.

Sweat is bad.

All I wanna know is who in the vicinity of Herndon or Gaithersburg stocks a good selection of Spring, Summer, & Fall gloves.

Not interested in winter riding gloves or various strategies for liners, wool, & winter riding. But that would make an excellent topic for you guys to discuss in another completely separate thread.

I can't think of anyone in Herndon that could help you. I have no idea about Gaithersburg.

Looked on the map, RnR is nearby in Sterling. Any decent shop for gear in Sterling? And didn't there used to be a shop off of Willard Rd in Centreville?

Ok well in Herndon not much. RNR does not have much but can order just about anything. If you want we do have a couple winter heated gloves and non heated to try one but only a couple. I wear my held winter gloves till it gets real cold then switch to heated.
