Glove suggestions?

Just double wrapped my bars and don't need my padded gloves any more. You guys have any suggestions on some gloves (non padded) to look in to? Fingerless or full, leather, synthetic, whatever. Just lookin for some input on something that holds up nicely and stays grippy, was considering the Charge Oven glove. I ride 20+ miles every morning, plus commute to work everyday. Any input is much appreciated. Thanks.

I usually only wear gloves when I'm racing and then I prefer nonpadded. I have some PI gloves that I like a lot. I just looked on the PI website and found these. Not the same as mine but similar.

Best riding gloves I've found are Harbinger leather weightlifting gloves. Nice and sturdy - I hate wimpy lightweight gloves.

If no padding is not an issue the best cycling gloves I've ever worn were purchased at one of those supply shops that cater to industrial/construction workers. The palm size of the gloves are a thin but tacky rubber and the backside is some sort of soft synthetic. They feel great and the whole back side of the gloves holds snot like a champ - it doesn't just push snot around your face like synthetics can. The best part about the gloves are the grip. When it rains, they get so tacky they actually make a noise when you pull them apart. Phenomenal grip. Cost was something like $12 for a 3 pack. When the back of the gloves get too disgusting I just wash them up in the sink with a little dish soap and hang to dry. You can also put them in a towel and pad dry. It's rubber and synthetic after all. Great stuff. Really couldn't recommend an accessory more.

I like my Fox Reflex full finger gloves. They are padded, but why get rid of the padding?

I use Mechanix gloves. They are durable and they fit my wide palm well.

I double taped my bullhorns, so now they're pretty thick and padding just makes it a bit much. I have some Trek Club gloves I scooped from work and they're just too much padding when combined with the new wrap.

Fox Racing Incline Glove. Usually they are pretty cheap or on sale somewhere and are great lightweight no padding gloves. I use them as spring/fall gloves when you want full finger gloves but don't need insulation.

Nike Football gloves with the tacky palm. Even works well in the rain.
