Yes, makes sense! My budget is microscopic, but of course intact hands after a crash has no price tag!

My other main concerns aside from temperature comfort is mobility, and i don't want to feel like i'm holding on to a wider grip, or too much OR thick padding, because i need to feel what the front wheel is doing, especially in wet and snowy conditions, braking etc, and i need to be easily able to reach for that brake lever without worrying bout glove hindering me. Another thing along the lines of comfort, is i dont want sweat building up regardless of ambient temp, because sweaty hands in gloves can slide all over weirdly, and feel nasty. Last thing I want is hot, soggy hands!

Any specific recommendation on brand/type etc?
