Most practical all weather protective gloves?

Hi, i'm new here. I had a few questions about gloves. Recently my soon to be former bike had its hub lock up due to chain jamming and i, the big human up top of course in newtonian fashion kept going. It was a pretty hard impact, and of course i tore up the hand on the side i went into curb (thankfully head in helmet landed in the grass on other side). I was wondering what kind of gloves any of you would recommend to protect from future hand road rash? I am a large guy & big hands, and i ride year round in all weather from below zero to over 100 Fahrenheit, rain, snow, etc. I do have some concerns of heat retention on hot days (my hands are like radiators) and finger protection on the colder days.

Thanks! (hope this is in right place to post this!)
