    I've had my best luck with surplus wool gloves, and they cost a lot less than that. I add trigger finger mittens for subzero temps.

    I'd suggest getting something with some wind protection, i.e. something with a nylon shell covering.

    There's, also a mitten version. Get them oversized and use a wool liner to soak up sweat as they take a while to dry w/o using a hair dryer. They're windproof and waterproof. The best for the money in my experience.

    Those Gordini gloves look really good.

    I was going second anything that is a wind/water resistant shell. I wear that over my regular cycling gloves until the temp gets below 30. Then I add some cheap fleece gloves in the middle for insulation.

    I use the Trek Strip Overmitt.... $20-25.
