Wintertime Gloves

#1 Post by pyxie » Fri Sep 28, 2007 10:14 am

Hey chicas! So the weather has turned rotten finally. Rode to work this morning and nearly froze to death! :? SO COLD! My gloves were great for warm and cool weather...but not cold.

Just wanted to see what gloves you guys have tired and liked for winter time riding. Thanks bunches!

I dont have winter gloves, but I use liners with my gloves when it's cold.
My brother has winter gloves, by Tour Master. I forgot which one... I'll find out..

I have a pair that actually make my hands SWEAT in even the coldest weather. But of course they're packed away in storage so I couldn't tell you the brand. Whatever you go with, it makes ALL the difference in the world if the gloves come up over your sleeves as opposed to being tucked under. No matter how warm your gloves are, if the wind can get into the jacket, you'll freeze.

I'll dig those gloves out tomorrow. Mine are too small for me but maybe they'll fit someone else.

For really cold weather, I have a set of Cold Front Carbon gloves. I haven't had to use them since moving to the Bay Area, but they're warm as feck and have a nifty wiper blade built-in.

I also have the carbon cold front gloves [ made by tourmaster]. They are very warm. I even use them for snow skiing/boarding.
