    Good cool weather gloves

    I'm looking for good gloves for when the temp is in the high 30's to 40's. Ideally I'd like to find something that have a similar to regular mountain biking gloves but offer a bit more wind protection. I don't need anything too thick or super warm.

    Any suggestions on a good pair?

    If you wanna save mucho dinero, these Sears Craftsman are fine. I bought two pair, for $5 each!

    No complaints so far.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I didn't see those for sale on sears.com but maybe they're available in the store.

    That's a great price but they don't have my size. I might check and see if they're at Performance.

    I use whatever mechanics gloves I can find on sale. Once, I started a ride with ski gloves but changed quickly. Nothing worse than sweating in cold temps.

    I picked these up today http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_1...u=00947553000P . They feel similar to mtb gloves but the tops are thicker so the extra warmth should be perfect for winter riding. Thanks for the rec!

    For cool weather I use the Pearl Izumi Cyclone glove.

    For colder weather I use the Pearl Izumi Barrier glove.

    I bought a pair of Descentes off of chainlove.com for $15. Not sure the exact name but they are very nice gloves.
    If you ever see a turtle on a telephone pole, remember he had help getting there. Is there anything beer can't do?

    Second on the Pearl Izumi Cyclone !! Has a nice padded palm, great wind protection. I think I paid around $40 for mine.

    I wear normal mtb gloves with a little extra room and just put a thin fleece liner glove under them. Works great down to below freezing and when I get too warm I take out the liners.

    I bought something very similar at menards, but for 8.99, they work great!

    Kinco Warm Grip.

    Thermal knit with a latex coating. Not wind proof but they are dense enough to cut the wind well. And only $5-8.

    LOL...I love the idea of riding with big "CRAFTSMAN" logos on your hands. (I want one for my bike too, LOL)

    I find temps have got to be below freezing for me to be able to wear gloves with any real insulation—otherwise my hands sweat like crazy once I've started riding.

    I noticed a pile of nice-looking workman gloves at Home Depot the other day...you could always check there too (or Lowe's).

    Home depot has "mechanic type" gloves that are labeled winter gloves for $10.

    I tried out my Craftsman mechanic gloves out today and they worked great. They have a similar feel as my regular mountain bike gloves just a bit more padding on the tops. It was a bit warm (in the low 50's) for them, but when the temp is in the 30's and 40's they'll be perfect.

    Thanks again dirt farmer

    I have normal fox gloves for anything above 45F, and below that I wear some Mountain Hardwear shell-type gloves. They work really well for cycling, are windproof, waterproof, and warm in colder weather. They are a bit bulky, but don't interfere with shifting. If you have a long commute or ride they may be TOO warm especially on the upper side of your temp range.

    Ummm... If I'm not mistaken, I think the OP has already made a satisfied purchase.

    MotoCross Gloves

    I will strongly prefer you to buy Motocross Gloves from shamim leather, because they are made up of leather and also have very nice grip.

    I've discovered the perfect cool-weather riding gloves for me, and they're dirt-cheap, $15/pair:
    The Champion C9 Running Gloves at Target—they're made from Powerstretch wicking material and have a light, vaguely sticky/rubbery coating on the palms so the grip is fine.

    http://www.target.com/C9-Champion-Po.../dp/B0042U8E2K

    These gloves keep my hands/fingers warm down into the 30s...and I like them because they aren't TOO warm (no sweaty hands). They're a bit cold at first, but once you're warmed-up they're perfect.
