What are the best gloves available for under $30 online for riding in as low as 0F?

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.

gordini gore-tex peak summit II 29.99US http://www.campmor.com

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.
