    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.

    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.

    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.

    Icon Patrol if you want a glove that allows you to feel the controls yet keep you warm. I can't stand the over padded gloves that are cumbersome at best most likely dangerous.
    At $75 shipped free at R Zilla you can't beat them.
    Add some bark busters to your bike to block the wind and you are set. Btw they are goat, breathable and waterproof and have a blade to clear your visor.

    The Scarab gloves works great for me, but I would agree with BHW lower than 40 deg that is a different story.

    I use Icon Patrol gloves. I have a 24 mile commute of mostly rural roads. This morning it was 32F and I used them with some cheap north face glove liners. They work decently, about halfway to work the tips of my fingers start getting cold. Once I reach work they are basically numbish at that point. I'm considering picking up a pair of the Competition Accessories Winter Cold Pro gloves because a lot of the reviews have said it's quite warm.

    The Scarabs are good down to at least 40 with a thin glove liner on my 20 mile morning commute.

    Webbike World reviewed these from Competition Accessories and rated them pretty highly. http://www.compacc.com/p/Sliders-Cold-Pro-Kevlar-Armored-Gloves

    They have been out of stock for at least a month but CompAcc replied to my email query saying November. Pretty much the end of the riding season for me.

    Those "Sliders" gloves look exactly like the AGV Sport Telluride gloves I have. Probably made by Olympia, and re-branded for several retailers.

    I don't agree with the thoughts from WebBikeWorld about them pulling off too easily with no wrist strap.
