Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
What brand gloves do you use, and why do you like them?
what gloves do you not like, and why?
I have 2 pair Pearl white lines, they're ok
0ne pair Louis Garneau full finger gloves nice fit comfortable.
0ne pair Louis Garneau Ergo Air glove which I hate, the seam
on the fingers is very uncomfortable.
The most comfortable glove I ever had were old
cotton mesh with full leather palms.

Specialized Pro - They're okay, fit is good but the padding seems to be minimal or placed funny for me. I do like them not having the velcro strap (thus no exposed area for the suntan spot on back of hand)
Kucharik - picked 'em up at HHH and like them better than the above. Leather palm has more padding than the Specialized
Best ones I ever had were Spenco Gel Gloves, but wore them out a long time ago and I don't think they're available anymore.

I have a pair of Louis Garneau Rex's that are decent. One of the seams was bothering me so I restitched it and it works fine.

I have 3 pairs of Pearl Izumi's. 1 pair are the full finger cold weather gloves they fit big but work fine for cold weather. The other 2 are the regular cycling gloves. No problems with them they fit great and I love them. Got my last pair at the outlet for $8.99!

The only gloves I wear are P.I. White Line (no full finger). They fit the best and are the most comfortable IMO.

One pair of Trek Moby-Gels for summer and one pair of Specialized winter gloves.
The Moby-Gels fit my hand perfectly and have the padding in just the right spot. They are so comfortable, its like I don't have them one.
The Specialized winter gloves are warm, even to below freezing. I could not ride in the cold without them.

Lake glove for freezing cold
Swobo wool full finger for chilly days
None for warm days

Performance fleece glove for the winter.
Cannondale leather fingerless for the summer.
Whatever I wear, I don't like too much padding but always like to have a glove of some sort on.

when i was riding a flat bar....i used louis garneau gel gloves. having injured the ligaments in both thumbs i would get quite a bit of pain when riding...those gloves helped a lot.
however...they fall apart quickly
now an oversized carbon bar and cinelli gel bar tape helps a ton
for summer i ride with nalini "pro" gloves. leather palm and spandex on the dorsum. very comfortable and has good "feel"
for the winter i use louis garneau windproof shells and they come with a fleece liner that is reinforced over the palm. they work fine but are a bit bulky and get pretty hot
i saw some campagnolo full fingered gloves one time that felt great.
they would make a good intermediate glove. they were more expensive than other brands...but not as much as the typical campy product..
When it's warm I use a pair of black fingerless Campagnolo's, for cooler weathe I use these: http://www.specialized.com/OA_MEDIA/2004/equip/2001TeamDownhillGloves_d.jpg
and for trail rides, I've got a couple year old pair of Fox Sidewinders
