glove suggestions

I was at Revzilla.com and watched their winter glove guide video. Too many choices.... and you really never know until you try.

I'm hoping for some anecdotal evidence on a few that people have tried.

Thanks in advance....

if you ride in cold weather my suggestion would be:

go ahead, bite the bullet and buy heated gloves and a heated jacket liner (either HD or Gerbings). Go ahead and spring for the dual thermostat control too. (one control for the jacket, one for the gloves).

It's not a cheap investment but believe me, if you ride in cold weather you'll be glad you spent the cash!

PS: I believe Gerbings makes the HD stuff so I say go with which ever you can get a better deal on.

For cold weather riding, I like the Maverick GT Gauntlet Thinsulate Lined glove. Warm, comfortable and not too bulky.

Churchill gloves

For wet weather, I am using the Held Warm N Dry Gloves. These are somewhat bulky, but have performed flawlessly in a heavy rain storm.

I spent $120 on the Harley FXRG gloves. So take it from me. If it is truly cold outside. 10min with the gloves on and your hands still get numb. Im buying the heated gloves and liners like mentioned above so save yourself money and buy it right the first time.

PS. i have a pair of HD FXRG gloves size 2XL for sale. Cost was $120 will sell em for $75?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Agree 100%

Sometimes when I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work. I think, "It is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

It has been in the 30's every morning this week and the only thing that gets cold are my fingers. After 30+ years of riding, I think I have spent hundreds of dollars on gloves, $20 to $30 at a time. I just have a hard time bringing myself to plunk down $100+ for a single pair. Maybe this year.

BTW, I have tried dozens and once the temp goes below 40, the fingers hurt after about 10 miles. I have a 24 mile commute.

Everything Roy said, except I ride 57 miles, and it's always a LITTLE colder up where I start...

I have four pair of gloves I wear for different reasons.
Fingerless for any weather that is warm enough. Harley.
Full summer gloves for any weather. Harley
Thicker winter gloves that come to the wrist. Thinsulate
And a pair of winter gloves that are really wram. Don't need heated with these. They are long and cover the jacket sleeves. Olymbia.
