Cold weather glove without "gauntlet"?

Does anyone know of a good cold weather glove without a gauntlet? The last place I need more insulation is on my wrists. My forearms and wrists are the first areas I start to overheat.

Unfortunately, the coldest place on my body is only inches away from the warmest. My fingers get cold easily. While I won't wear any long sleeves under my shell unless its colder than 32F, I wear full fingered gloves under 60F.

Anyone know of a good insulating glove that is also very short? I'm in Portland, so it needs to be waterproof also. Anyone make a short lobster claw?

The PI Cyclone isn't waterproof, but it's warm. I wear a pair up here in Seattle all winter. If it gets too cold, then throw a light wool liner underneath.

p.s. Using a water repellent spray has worked good for me.

Thanks for the suggestions so far.

The cuff design on the Cyclone is even worse than a gauntlet for me. I was hoping for more of something like the Pittard glove with insulation. Anything tight around the wrist makes the overheating problem much worse for me.

@dogbitteneear, I use work gloves now, and am looking for a possible better solution. I have two that I wear - the Custom Leathercraft "Tradesman" and the "Thunder" when the weather gets colder. The Thunder isn't quite warm enough to keep my fingers warm, and even with the cuffs open, my wrists still roast.

Has anybody tried these pogies from REI on a bike? I have a flat-bar road bike.

I just use Thinsulate regular winter gloves, but then, wet is rarely a problem when it gets cold enough for these to come out. Wore them this morning, as it was 29F when I left the house.

Best thing I ever had for the worst of weather was in the military -- woolly glove liners inside the heavy rubber chemical gloves. Kept fingers cozy during a February field exercise in Germany!

I've always liked the looks of the Gore Bikewear Countdown Gloves, but have never been able to find them in stock anywhere:

Certainly not going to have the insulation of a lobster claw glove, though...

Seems to me a sewing shop or even a shoe repair place is what you need to make alterations. Although I've had gloves I thought were too short at the wrist, I've never come across anything really warm that didn't have at least some coverage there.

Find a pair you like and have the gauntlet shortened or removed. I wouldn't think it would be all that expensive to have done.

These should work for you. Very warm, and stop right at the wrist. The picture doesn't show how short the coverage is, I wore a pair of these last winter and had to make sure the sleeves of my jacket were pulled down long enough to keep my wrist from getting cold. My hands and arms were nice and warm, and the gap between them would get cold in a way that's familiar to all us taller guys.
