It has to be waterproof and warm let me hear what you have?
KLIM Element long gloves
i purchased a set of revit h20 a few months back, and are very impressed with them so far. not too expensive either.
I like my Warm-n-Safe gloves.
REV'IT! Alaska GTX Gloves
Outershell: goatskin with WR finish, suede leather with WR finish
Insulation: Thermolite®, Push-Pull Tri-Fleece Liner
Waterproofing: GORE-TEX® membrane
Breathability: GORE-TEX® membrane
Composition: Outershell: 100% Leather; Lining: 100% Polyester; Membrane: 100% GORE-TEX® membrane (ePTFE)
Protection: leather hard-shell knuckle, PU injected finger knuckles, TPU hard-shell little finger protector, Dual-comp palm slider, EVA foam at thumb and wrist
Visibility: laminated reflection at cuff, reflection at fingers
These things are already broke in, have protection and are very warm especially with heated grips.
Held Warm and Dry, No contest! the only problem is that they cost 200-
uh huh..............and jacket, pants and socks.
- Held Warm and Dry: great fit, but not as warm as Klim PowerXcross
- Klim PowerXcross: - warm, dry, but grip is somewhat loose.
Thinking about trying the Klim Caldera.....
RST Adventure gloves. Great feel for a winter style glove, and for those that venture off road, they have a generous amount of silicon grippy stuff on the palms and fingers for when it gets wet and muddy.

Pricey but Scandinavian climate dictates Rukka. I used the Traffic model years ago and it vvas bulletproof.
Okay so far:
Held warm n dry and warm n safe
REV'IT alaska and h20
As said in the matrix: the problem is choice. ;-)
Thanks guys I will look into pros and cons about these gloves.
Must say that im mostly in to the warm n dry gloves for now, i have 3 pairs of gloves they are useless right now., so i dont mind price any more, only quality
I'm currently using Rukka R-Star gloves. They are not perfect but they are the best so far.
What other gloves have you experince with?
I have had:
-Two different probiker touring gloves. Inexpensive and quite warm if its not raining. They are not waterproof even if they are said to be. Good feel and light.
-Vanucci some kind of "racing" gloves. Very nice feel to handlebars but it must be over +20 C to use them. Thin, lightweight and good protection.
-Dainese Scout Gore-tex. I didn't ride long with these until I returned them to shop. If I remember correctly the lining came out almost every time when I took them off.
-Halvarsson dontrememberthename Touring gloves. Didn't ride long with these either. Seam which holds the thumb caused pain during heavy braking. In the shop they changed them to new ones but they had the same problem.
-MP-Asu Vision. Quite cheap, warm, good feel and grip. But they don't hold water for long.
-Biltema touring glove. Just buy almost any thick winter gloves and they are the same. They are cheap though.
These Rukka R-star gloves have a good feel on the "grip" side of the glove. They are warm and hold water for hours and hours. They are even quite comfortable durin the hottest days of Finnish summer. Unfortunately every pair seem to be unique so I would not recommend to buy them without testing them on. Especially the seams on top of the fingers can vary a lot.
Anything using gore tex xtrafit is adviseable. In Xtrafit gloves the goretex liner is laminated against the outer shell of the glove, giving a nice direct feel and still keeps your hands warm and dry.
Rukka have them but also Hein Gericke, Alpinestars and others.
Held Touring Star GTX are pretty awesome
They are a two section glove, which sounds like a gimmick but is just brilliant. Owned for about a year, and no issues, very good quality.
I have to add that if you're even remotely thinking of heated gear in the near future look at the warm and safe Touring gloves.
Grade A, top grain drum dyed cowhide construction
Reflective piping on top of hand
Carbon fiber protection on molded knuckles
Breathable, "Waterproof" Membrane
Reinforced Protection in Palm
Rubber shield wipe, Thumb-mounted
Double heat in the thumb
No annoying wires in the palm
A layer of Thinsulate
Even unplugged they are really warm but plug them in and add heated grips and WOW!
I got some $30 snowboarding gloves for the winter. Wind/water proof, long sleeves with draw string closures, my hands never get cold. The thick insulation hinders dexterity a bit, but it's not a problem.
I dare say they wouldn't hold up to well in a crash.
