    Winter riding glove suggestions?

    I'm looking for some glove suggestions from riders in the cold part of the country.

    For years I've been riding in cheap azz ski type gloves found at home centers and such and I'm thinking of getting myself a GOOD pair of gloves to ride in. My only real problem with the cheapie gloves is that the inside lining takes forever to dry and they smell BAD after only a few rides and have to be machine washed/and dried.

    Looking for something that's good for 35F down to about 10F that the inside is of a material that will dry overnight and is machine washable.

    I'm thinking of these ones at Jenson, any experience with these?

    Manzella Evolution W2 Windproof Gloves, not bulky, have the "warmer" W2 from Manzella. They are toasty warm, wind proof, have a sweat/nose wipe. Works for me.

    This thread; which, coincidentally, happens to be in the appropriate sub-forum.

    My hands get cold easily. I use higher end ski gloves (gore-tex etc.). They are a bit bulky, but toasty warm (I use rapid fire and they work well enough). Use a small fan to dry them (not a heat vent).

    I usually wash my regular gloves after each ride. The ski gloves I might wait 2-3 rides (and use a small fan to dry).

    Unfortunately, the top of your hands will still get cold from the wind / temperature. I know because heated grips on my Harley were not nearly as warm as actual heated gloves.

    Most cycling gloves I've used didn't work out that well. Something about the curve of your hand on the hard cold bar and the blood just never circulated right. I'm going with more insulation from now on.
