    The warmest, warmest gloves under $50

    Does anyone know of any extremely warm gloves for frigid temperatures? I live in the mountains in Tennessee and it isn't cold at all yet, but it's only a matter of time.

    I'm looking for something that would keep warm down to at least 0F, and waterproof. Any suggestions?

    I saw this ad in outside magazine for the Seirus Xtreme All Weather Glove, and it sounds like just what you're looking for. The ad says it's 100% waterproof, windproof, breathable, basically like a ski glove but without the bulk. Not cycling specific, but still worth a look

    I had a look at those gloves and they look just about perfect. I'm glad they have an Xtra large because I have a hard time fitting into anything smaller. Thanks for the help.

    Hit your local sporting good / big box store and get yourself a monster pair of mittens. Add to that a nice pair of wool gloves and you'll be warm and toastie.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    Come to Canada, go to an army surplus store and get a set of (used) white mittens like these:



    You won't be cold.

    go to REI.com and look for a pair of these:



    They have a fleece-lined shell with a removeable synthetic inner glove, synthetic rubber palm and a cool little goggle wiper built onto the index filter, this is my second season on these so they have held up pretty well. I'm comfortable in them down to about -5F although I've used them for short rides in colder temps. I bought them for about 40 bucks.

    Those don't look bad at all. What are they called?

    Mittens of flip mittens are your best bet. Search the forums for many threads on this.

    They consistently have the lowest prices on high quality gloves and mitts.

    They aren't gloves, but you might have a look at some "Moose Mitts" :

    http://www.trails-edge.com/retail/te_shirts/amfbikemits.htm

    The idea is that you can wear a pair thin gloves (or no gloves) underneath and still operate your controls without being encumbered by a thick glove.

    I can't remember, something typically REI like "sedonas" or "chinooks", asian in origin, ski/boarding gear.

    I did the big search a few minutes ago and obviously they don't make this glove combo anymore, this year the closest is the Vertigo, mine are basically Vertigo shells with a polypro inner but they came as one glove and the shell outer has velcro locators to keep things from wandering around inside.

    Whoa, prices are way up, gotta love that plummeting dollar, glad I got mine when I did.

    Motorcycle gloves work very well. Almost everyone has a line of them now. Go to the Coolmax site, REI, etc. all have these. Usually come with a liner, so they are versatile.
    I have enough words to get me into trouble, but not enough to get me out of trouble.

    +1 on Campmor

    I got my OR gloves from them.

    He could also try to find some cheap downhill ski gloves. I used those
    for a couple years, warm, but a pain shifting brifters with them.

    If you have a TJ Maxx near you, check them out. I just picked up a pair of 180"s Exhales for $19.00. They have a removable liner glove, and you can breathe into the glove for extra warmth if needed. They go for $30-40 normally. They also had Marmot and Columbia stuff that was less than half price.

    I just got some hunter's gloves at Wal-Mart for $19. They have a mitten covering over the fingers, but individual glove fingers inside the mitten covering. I was out riding for an hour and twenty minutes at 24 degrees F. My fingers stayed warm and the inside of the gloves were moist with perspiration. I am expecting they will keep my fingers warm down to near zero degrees F.

    I have not experience with these. But all their other clothing is high quality and the price is right. Another forum member turned me on to their bibs which are a great value.

    I think they're a "good value" because you're a billboard in motion when you wear their products. It's like having a sponsor without a sponsorship, I guess.

    The Pearl Izumi Lobster gloves/mittens hybrids are very warm and very comfortable. If it gets too cold for them alone, I throw on an additional pair of fleece mittens.....but I like the dexterity of the lobster style.

    Way back when, I got a pair of Zero-brand mittens that are the warmest I've owned. They're also waterproof. They're also water vapor proof. That means they make my hands sweat. And after doing a fair bit of hiking and snowshoeing in Colorado, I really only used them a very few times. I had some regular wool mittens that worked better for general snowshoeing. Bicycling introduces more wind and would make those somewhat less useful. I definitely would vote for mittens, though, which are underappreciated.

    I remember seeing mukluks in a surplus store. Careful with some of that stuff. If it gets cold enough, snow falling on you, or being walked through, doesn't melt, and you don't really need waterproof stuff. So stuff that might work great in Antarctica isn't necessarily the right thing in a cold wet climate.

    Are they water/windproof? If so that would be some bargain!

    I am not absolutely certain, but I believe they are. You would want to keep the mitten covering pulled over the fingers. I think they would do well in a cold rain, but not if you dipped them directly into a bucket of water. I am away from home right now, but will try to give them a test and get back to you.

    This evening I was out riding in 14 mph wind at 34 deg. F. I could not feel the wind through the gloves. Water dribbling from a faucet seems to run off of them, but the fabric feels moist afterward.

    I picked up some inexpensive polypro glove liners at REI last winter for about $10. It was a very good investment. They will fit under my Pearl Izumi Pittards and Gel-Lite long-finger gloves, extending their comfort range by at least 10 degress. So far they have kept my hands warm down the upper 20s with no problems, but not sure if I will need something heavier when morning lows get down into the teens.
