Cold Weather Gloves

Alright, guys...what gloves do you wear in cold weather. I have a set of Cortech Scarabs that suck after about 15 min. They have a Thinsulate liner, but they let way too much air in. I highly doubt they are rainproof. I spent a good part of today looking for gloves and reading reviews, but really couldn't come up with anything conclusive. Seems like the best cold/wet weather gloves offer almost zero impact protection.

I've contemplated those, but they can get 'spensive. As much as I'm probably going to be on my bike this winter, though, I may have to invest in some. Might even get the gaudy hand deflectors for my bike, too.

yeah, after riding 10+ yrs in the cold, shoulda done this heated gear ALONG time ago.

this warmnsafe co. has a remote-remote, so the heater controls are on my "dash" vs in the suit somewhere, well worth it.

That is true, I have seen only few that have a decent level of protection, at a regular price. I have never tried glove liners, like that:

http://www.cyclegear.com/eng/product...ers/web1008353

Has anybody tried them or sth similar? Cause if they do work it would be a good combination with a pair of normal leather gloves with protection.

Either way, winter is usually not that bad in Texas, I've survived just fine with regular leather gauntlet gloves.

How well do they work? Details, man, details! I've seen a handful of reviews on the Spidi's, and stitching coming undone is a pretty common theme. How have yours held up?

Guess I should have specified my situation to get more practical (to my application) responses. I ride a cruiser with a quick detach windshield that offers no hand protection whatsoever. I know faired bikes will push a little of the wind around your hands, but I don't have that luxury.

Just to give you an idea, it was 44-ish when I left for work this morning, and I have a 32 mile commute. I hadn't even made it halfway before my fingers got cold, so I'm definitely going to need something better. I will go heated if I have to, but as a last resort. If you have details of your experiences with good gloves, please provide them. Coldest temp, faired/naked, distance ridden in coldest temp, etc.

Liners feel weird to me just putting a glove on over them. I can't imagine how strange they would feel actually riding.

Just bite the bullet and go heated. I used to put ski gloves over my leather gloves and that helped but there's nothing like getting some warm finger loving.

A* has some goretex gloves that sell at CG for about 120, extremely warm, but a little bulky.

When it's cold I put on my FT gauntlets because they have a cloth liner, and if it's really cold I stick one of those 99 cent hand warmers in there, works fine for me, and I ride all through winter. Come this january though, I may go heated gloves.
