I ride everyday as far as is NOT raining. My commute yesterday was 10 miles one way and today is going to be a longer commute after work all the way to Tomball and then from Tomball to Katy.

I am using the Firstgear Explorer gloves with Freeze-out inner glove liners from Cyclegear and I still can feel the tips of my fingers getting cold! Good thing this is just temporary and will not last for weeks.

Where did you hit ice? I didn't see anything on the roads around 7, but I'm going from SW side into downtown.

Those Freeze Out liners from Cycle Gear are the biggest waste, IMO. Not to mention I can't tell a bit of difference in temp or insulation, they just fell apart at the seam along the back of my hand.

I'm using the Bilt water/wind-proof winter gloves along with grip warmers. They're fine into the mid-30's, but I think I'm going to have to go with a heated liner or glove at some point, if I actually find myself riding in sub-freezing weather regularly.

They work well above 32F too. Besides, since there isn't a whole lot I can do when it gets brutally hot in the Summer, I don't mind spending a bit to make me comfy on the cold months.

I don't usually turn on my grip warmers until it gets below 40F, but I wear my winter gloves just about anytime it's below 55F or so. If the warmers were built into the gloves, I could (and would) still wear the gloves about 3 months out of the year, whether the heater was on or not. $150 for a pair of gloves that I'd only wear 25% of the season still isn't bad, considering I spend a lot more than that on gear I wear a lot less.
