Hello there,

I would like to suggest Cortech Scarab Winter gloves.
It is made of cowhide, with a goatskin palm, features a breathable/waterproof liner, and have Thinsulate insulation and a fleece inner liner for warmth and comfort.

Hope it helps.

Alpinestars ST-1 Drystar - warm, waterproof and inexpensive - I actually mean cheap since I ride a KLR.

ST-1 Drystar

How long do you want to ride for at a time and how much protection do you want out of your gloves?

Those are not full out winter gloves. They are mold weather gloves.

In order for those to work in the winter you need heated grips AND a fairing or hand guards.

but they are thin, dexterity is great, they are warm for a short commute. I wouldn't wear em for hours on end in cold temps on the highway though. I did on a fully faired concours with heated grips and a heater liner and was freezing.

Heated gloves that will work no matter what your bikes output is.

Get some ski mittens. Most are waterproof too.

Olympia gloves are nice and warm, but they're a little bulky. I have a pair of Olympia 4350's and with handguards, I rode to work in low 30 degree weather with no issues.

I also have a pair of Alpinestars Apex Drystar gloves. Much better tactile feel, but not quite as warm as the Olympias.

These babies are awesome. Anything above 50 and my hands are sweating. Hands down, the warmest gloves i've ever put on, period.

Stayed warm and dry riding 200 miles in a rain storm in the low 40's.

Those Scarab Winters are the ticket as long as you're not riding in bitter cold, like below 40* for very long. Many winter gloves are VERY thick and bulky. You have to find that happy medium between too much insulation, and not enough dexterity.

I tried a pair of leather snowmobile gloves years ago. They kept my hands chill-free. But I couldn't feel the turn signal switch, starter button, etc. It was like wearing boxing gloves. I ended up going through several pairs of gloves before I settled on a pair of AGV Sport winter gloves that allowed me to still feel my controls, and they still kept my hands reasonably warm.


I have the Cortech Scarab, the non-winter version, and it's been a very good glove for several years now. I'll probably end up with the winter version son enough.


I think my AGVs are the Telluride model, like these. hard ot find, but not very expensive usually.
