Warm riding gloves
« on: January 11, 2016, 11:00:33 AM »
Since the cold weather my fingers seem to be re-acting to the cold more than usual so I think i'm finally gonna get some proper winter gloves.  I've always avoided them because of the lack of feel you get compared to standard riding gloves but if I can't feel my fingers I guess that points moot.

Anyone got any recommendations for warm, preferably waterproof, riding gloves that feel ok to ride in?

I can't tell if you're trying to rub it in that you had some good gloves but not telling me what they are so I can't get a set, or if you're suggesting that I should follow your Strava route from Sunday to get myself a free pair!

Wind / Wayerproof gloves do tend to be bulky with padding though as you said.
I've not found a good pair yet that leaves you feeling the handle bars

There are wet suit type gloves out there but not tried them

Planning on living forever .... So far so good !!

Keep an eye out for Aldi/Lidl gloves. Normally under 10 for the winter gloves I was wearing last week. They were too warm. No idea how good they are apart from that but they seem ok.

You're getting old! ;D :P  ;)

:D :D You'd just need to scour the roadside from Afan. They'd not have stayed on the roof very far!  :-[
I couldn't remember what they were called but a quick Google now  tells me they were Endura  Windex. They weren't waterproof but still stayed reasonably warm when wet. They did I got them for about 22 but I think they're running at closer to 30 in most shops at the moment.

Cheers Andy. I guess I'll be scouring the roadside for a while then! Will look into them, I think Mike mentioned he had some Enduras I'll borrow to try out.

Aren't they just a colourful version of what vets use to stick their arms up cows backsides?
