Question recommend cool weather gloves?

All,

I went out riding early Saturday. About a half an hour out, riding at moderate speeds of 50-60 mph, I noticed my hands cramping. I normally wear light leather gloves with gel palms. Usually I get a bit of hand fatigue, but this was abnormal. Does anyone have a recommendation for gloves? I might try and find just some light silk glove liners. I did zip in my mesh jacket liner a few minutes ago. The cooler weather is not going to stop me. I did notice that buttoning down my full face Shoei is nice and comfy, shield up resulted in tears from my eyes, even with dark glasses.

fabric water resistance gloves block wind and keep the heat pretty well.

this. If you are really cheap some surgical gloves under your normal gloves helps a little.

With those and a wool balacava and a few layers and a liner under my jacket I'm good to about 35 degrees for rides up to an hour.

Peel it all off when I get to work and bam there I am in slacks and a dress shirt.

buy the ski pants a size large or try them on with your regular cloths under them.

How is the fit on these? Was it comparable to other gloves that you wear? Also what is the longest you've ever ridden with them for (and what was the temp? Did they hold up as far as temp was concerned? Thanks.
