Question Winter Gloves

Howdy folks,

What are folks using for winter gloves around here? I've had an old pair of first gears that are now falling apart; however they did a mediocre job at best on my sub half hour commute.

Considered the churchill waterproof gauntlets, but am a bit dubious they'd do the job any better than what I'm replacing.

Any input or thoughts are appreciated. I'm pretty open in terms of materials etc. I do not have heated grips.

I have a pair of TOUR MASTER winter gauntlet gloves that don't fit. They are XL, but really maybe L. Waterproof/breathable, yadayada. They have about 35 miles on them (like new). $30.00. I'm in Beaverton.

I have 3 pairs of winter gloves in progressive "weather-ability". All three are fairly good at staying dry even after riding in the rain for a few hours.

For cool/wet weather:

Held Gortex (don't remember which model)

Heated grips are cheap and easy to install. Then you don't have to deal with bulky gloves and always have toasty hands. It's great when you pull up next to your buds and they're shaking their hands to get warm and yours are steaming!(literally!) Get the elements that glue onto your bars so you can use whatever grips you like.

I tried all sorts of winter gloves and didn't like any of them including gerbings heated ones. I ponied up for a set of the goretex hippo hands best rest sells. The are the bees knees when paired with heated grips. I know ride in my thin held gloves year round and stay warm and dry. Once the temps drop below 35 I add thin gloved liners, but I have cold sensitive hands.

Would give 'em a try, but I'm up north of Seattle (actually kinda near BestRest) a tetch.

The hippo hands from BestRest do look tempting, but they're kinda spendy even vs. heated grips.
Just checked his site & didn't see 'em anymore. He's out for the weekend I gather so may have to catch him next week.
