Windproof glove with removalbe liner?

Anyone know of a good windproof glove with a removable liner? I have a pair of Pearl Izumi Cyclone gloves which I love in the cold but they don't dry and when you wash them you can't get your hands in them. I got sick of it today and actually tore the liner out only to discover some weird plastic liner below it and some insulation stuff and now the old liner is no good.

Marmot Shell Gloves. They're waterproof too. I don't think Marmot makes these anymore, unfortunately.

Alpineer.com still has some.

I wear a generic pair of stretchy, woven fabric, gardening gloves (recycled soda bottles, I think) (insulating layer) under a pair of leather work gloves (wind proof layer). Very inexpensive and works fine for me down to temps in the high twenties.

I bought some polypro glove liners ($4 at mec) and wear them under my Specialized Deflect gloves when the temp drops below freezing. They are fairly thin so they slid into the glove easy, wicks away moisture, can be removed to be washed and they keep my digits warm.

doesn't answer your question but here goes...

i use neoprene ice fishing gloves. wind/water proof. i take them off inside-out so they dry. every week or so i soak them in the sink with an anti-bacterial dish washing soap.

Ditto. I bought some to use for winter sailing, and use them often in the wet.

Another option is Army surplus glove liners and shells. The shells are leather and come in a number of sizes. You can treat them with any number of waterproofing compunds. The shells are green wool. About $10.

I've also used BMW [motorcycle] wet weather gloves, which have long gauntlets and are orange.

I use these gloves in really cold weather, and they seem like what you're looking for. they're a little pricey though.

I really like the Specialized Sub-Zero, although I've never worn them with the liner in. I'm just thrilled to find something that fits my long fingers. The XXL without the liners is just a tad loose, which is perfect for a winter glove. Also in my pile of gloves is the Specialized Radiant, and it's a little tight in the XXL (without removeable liner).

I have some Burton ski mitts that also have a liner with them. At 20F without the liner and with the knuckle zips open I'm still roasting. Great for skiing, but overkill for the commute here.
