Finally found gloves that work when it's cold

I finally have purchased a pair of gloves that works when it's cold outside. The weather dipped into the 30's this week and for the first time, I have a pair of gloves that keeps my hands from being numb by the end of my ride.

These are the ones I wear. Got them on a sale for $25. They're actually fishing gloves. I wear another pair of cheap wool gloves inside.

I’d say go large and put on winter gloves + liners. And, when possible of course, try to warm your hands / gloves before you ride. Haven’t tried hand warmers yet but I’m getting more interested about that solution. Because sometimes your hands can feel colder than usual (e.g. when your not too well) and gloves cannot always cope with that no matter which ones.

Craft also makes Siberian four finger gloves and a two piece thermal glove with waterproof mitten cover.

I own several pieces of Craft gear including summer base layers, winter wind block base layers, a featherweight gilet and VentAir Xwind arm warmers. The arm warmers especially are amazingly light yet warm.

Not sure why people don't give Craft any respect. Most of their gear is top of the line and I'm not surprised that the OP finds that their gloves work very well.

Love the craft winter line of apparel and accessories. Have these exact gloves bought for $20 in the summer and they keep my hands toasty without liner gloves. Iím not a huge fan of the lobster glove style though, still canít get used to it.

I always associated Craft with XC skiing, seeing their gear in ski shops and all... so, cold weather gear. I was debating these lobster gloves vs. Altura waterproof gloves and went with the latter. Not bad but not very warm (OK for just below freezing). Maybe I'll give the Crafts a chance a few years from now.
