Cold weather gloves

I was wondering what the best cold weather gloves are. I was riding last saterday. It got down to about 35. I had on leathers and really didnt get cold, but I had to pull over every little bit cause my finger would go numb. I had on thick non-insulated gloves with a thin jersey gloves inside. Besides my hands getting cold the gloves were bulky and hard to use. What are the best cold weather gloves that dont restrict hand movement. Thanks

I have some teknic rain gloves that I go to when it gets in the 40's here at night.

They are double layered and waterproof so they keep the wind away real well and being double layered have some insulation to them.

Like these http://www.ridegear.com/rg/item/F-42...of_Gloves.html

but these look better than mine- http://www.ridegear.com/rg/item/F-42...of_Gloves.html

Try our sponsors, links for reference.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

not sure how they would work but maybe an actual cold weather glove liner thats available from REI or local sporting goods store and then a good quality glove for cold, wet etc.

I havent found a glove yet that will keep your hands warm in very cold temps......except for my widder heated gloves. They are not much more than a regular pair of gloves. Heated is the only way to go.

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

I have a set of Joe Rocket Ballistic 5.0 Gloves I bought for about $50. THey work pretty well down in to the 20's for short trips but if the ride is longer than 25 minutes or so the cold will still get to my fingers.

on the heated gloves though. I have heard this from other experienced(older) riders it is the only way to go.

Thread resurrection. Anybody have experience with a good, thin glove liner that does the job on the track. Last trackday sucked until mid morning because my hands were so numb (about 40 degrees, then warmed up to 60). I go back to Jennings in 1 week and I dread the hand numbness. I just don't want to wear my super bulky winter gloves on the track.

Ride like you pay a mortgage...
