Best Gloves for colder weather riding

I'm in the market to buy some good gloves for colder weather riding. I've tried astars winter gloves and columbia ski gloves. with and with out liners, rubber gloves under the glove (what a joke) it doesn't seem to matter my finger tips are numb and my hands are hurting in a bad way when i arrive at the office.

I'm open to electrical gloves that connect to the battery and anything else.

I've heard of people claim super thick wool gloves work good, my question is how the do you get a hold of the clutch or twist the throttle

any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I had some thick winter riding gloves that I never got to use.
Think I lost them in the move though.
If I find them before winter's over, you can have them.

thanks,

doing some searching and these look pretty cool. rechargable too.

these are cheap enough that if they suck i wont be too upset.
heated liners that heat both the inside and outside of the hand, comes with connections to run to the battery. only thing I'd want to add to it is the controller incase it isn't warm enough OR too warm

Try heated grips and if still not enough use the Hippo Hand type wind blockers. Easy to remove when not needed.

Bulky gloves suck, not safe IMO and heated gloves are such a PIA to wire up and put on each time you stop.

edit: battery operated gloves in the link you posted look promising. Should be enough for any work commute but not a solution for long rides though.

Move to Houston where you don't need them. That said, I have a pair of Fieldsheer $40 winter gloves and a pair of $30 waterproof, leather Motoboss gloves. I got them from CG on sale and wore them in Soctland. They worked great in the cold and rain there.

I have a pair of super thick leather gloves that are great at keeping my hands warm, but they are very awkward to ride in. I have been longing for the electric heated gloves.

I have a pair of lined deerskin leather gauntlets from Renegade, and they're excellent. The leather is soft and pliant enough to not be cumbersome for lever work, but the leather completely blocks wind and the liner is nice and comfy. I'd highly recommend them. My wife also uses them, and she's cold intolerant. She wears them with an extra thin knit glove on when it's super cold.

renegade the biker store? or is that a brand? and how much did they run?

also what is a longer distance ride that your wife has gone on a ride with you wearing those gloves? The reason I ask is that my commute is about twenty six miles. While it wasn't a problem riding ten miles to work in any riding condition the twenty six beats me up if it's cold

and indy rc shhhhh! my body is used to Houston and the heat. this "COLD" sucks!

The biker store. They run $30. Our morning commute is roughly the same as yours, but we've ridden farther than that with this gear.

Leather is teh shizt; it just blocks wind better IMO. I don't do nylon gear at all. I'm kind of a polar bear though, so YMMV. I don't really start putting on cold weather gear until it gets pretty danged cold.

I've tried a lot of winter gloves, and the cold seeps in anyway. I have some A* that are good protection but don't stay that warm that I use when it's chilly. I have some Widder that are by far the warmest (down to 32F) even when not plugged in. They are super thick, but very flexible filling and fabric... I don't see how they would offer much protection in an accident though.
