    Gloves without closures

    I've used a One Vapor the past 2 summers, but they're too thin for use below ~60F. What else is out there, and how well do you like it for 45-60 degrees fahrenheit?

    I've seen One Zero, SixsixOne Raji, and Fox Attack. I saw people complaining about the small sizing on the Raji... I wear XL in most gloves and probably would get XXL in that one, I guess.

    You don't want the Raji as a winter glove. I've got a pair and they are about as thin as it gets.

    The Specialized Deflect glove is pretty nice. I have an older pair and they work pretty well. They keep out the wind.

    Thanks. I have a mid-weight set of gloves that works down to 45, but the closure annoys me. Thus, this thread.

    They have a cuff...no velcro closure. Nothing to bind up on the sleeve.

    Check out the Giro Blaze, perfect for those temps, cuts the wind very well. Sizing pretty spot on. Excellent dexterity, not thick.

    For inexpensive pull ons, I like Giro DNDs.
    You can find them for $12-$20 without much hassle.
    Durability is hit or miss. Some last a month of daily riding and others have lasted for a full summer season.
    Been riding in 40-65 temps for months this "winter".
    Fine for me at lower temps as long as I don't wipe sweat right before long DH sections.

    I ordered a set of Giro Blaze 2 in XL and they don't fit. The whole glove is too small - fingers too short, and I can't make a fist.

    XL gloves that do fit me:
    Specialized
    Pearl Izumi
    One Industries

    I do like the construction of them, with a thin leather palm and the insulated material is only on the back of the glove and fingers. I think that's exactly what I'm looking for, but now I'm nervous about trying the XXL...

    Giro is hands down making the best fitting/looking/quality gloves on the market IMO. Too bad they don't fit. I wear the xxl in the blaze and they fit perfectly.

    Fox motocross gloves always seem a bit baggy on me, maybe check out a motocross shop if you can.

    Did you already see this: Giro Blaze Gloves - Winter | Backcountry.com

    I might just order another pair. . .

    And maybe a pair of these while I'm at it:Giro Ambient Gloves - Winter | Backcountry.com


    Just an FYI: I have long, somewhat skinny fingers compared to most people that wear an xxl glove, I typically find motocross gloves like TLD and Fox baggy in XXL, but the XXL Giro gloves are nice and snug, with perfect length fingers. The Fox mountain bike specific gloves tend to fit tighter on me than the Fox MX gloves.

    Backcountry, aha. I hadn't looked there yet.

    Completely agreed on Fox gloves. I do ride MX also - well, not as much these days because of MTBing.

    Got the Giro Blaze 2 in XXL last night from Backcountry. It fits almost perfectly. The fingers are very slightly long, maybe 2 mm. It fits very much like the gloves I wear when it's really cold - Fox Antifreeze XL. (I live with the closure on that one because it's an awesome glove. )

    Thanks for all the tips!

    I'm using a pair of Giro Rivet 2's in rotation with a pair of Thor Void's.
    We don't get as cold here though.
