    Gloves for 25 F and above

    What would be the best and least bulky gloves I could for mountain biking if the lowest temp I plan to ride is 25F?

    Gloves for 25 F and above

    Guys at the Adventure Cycling Association were recently talking about the Craft Hybrid Weather glove as being a good option. Looks like some versions of it come as a glove/mitten combo for around $35.

    I've used XC ski gloves for years. Nowadays there are some bike-specific brands like Mavic, Giro, Enduro etc that make cold weather gloves too.

    I've been using a neoprene version of Castelli gloves -- $13 from Chainlove. Not at all waterproof but very warm, regardless of how wet your hands get.

    I have a pair of thin black gloves made by Hind that I picked up about 10 years ago or more and don't know what I would do if i misplaced them. They are thin, articulate well for xc skiing or mtb and work great down to low 20s F. They say " windjammer" on the cuff and block out ALL wind and cold. Any colder and I put a thin glove liner in and that gets me down to single digits. Better than any xc ski glove I've owned. I don't know if Hind still makes them but maybe the Gore windstopper products compare.

    Have the Gore Windstopper gloves and overall I like them for weather down to maybe 30. Lower than that and my hands get cold so I put on the lobsters by Pearl. I had really hoped the Gores would have been better at lower temps but for me they just are not.

    Got a few gloves that keep me warm to maybe 35 but none I rave about. It's nice to have more than one pair so you're always warm and dry. Below 35-40 I like Planet Bikes Borealis. Semi-lobster, separate removable fleece liners. I wear the outer gloves with fingerless bike gloves inside down to mid 20s. Below that I use their fleece liners. You can use the fleece alone in warmer temps too. Good product.

    At that temperature, I'm still okay layering glove liners under the full-fingered gloves I wear all year. At 25, it's a bit marginal. But okay. Certainly fine in the low 30s above freezing.
