    Value Gloves

    I'm looking for a pair of full length mountain biking gloves.

    I'd like for them to have a reasonable (large) amount of padding.

    I ride in Texas so need cool enough gloves. If possible I'd prefer ones with soft fabric to better wipe your brow.

    Price and padding are most important.

    Much appreciated in advance!

    I have some Endura gloves, the sweat wipe isn't just the thumb, it's the whole forefinger too. And plenty of padding.

    You go to an off-road motorcycle shop.

    Buy gloves.

    Done.

    Free the Powder makes excellent ski gloves but I haven't tried their MTB gloves. However, they are on sale so I just ordered a pair. I don't know about the brow wiping adequacy, but you might be interested in the MXP with padding: https://www.freethepowder.com/collec...in-bike-gloves

    The ski glove construction is top notch and I suspect the bike gloves will be the same.

    I used to think that good padding was important. Not anymore. I'm really really liking minimal gloves with no padding these days, and Handup gloves are my faves.

    I put the padding in my grips, but a bike that actually fits is key to the equation. IME, extra padding makes the gloves hotter, and that kinda takes away from one of your criteria.

    Same here, when I started riding, I liked my gloves to be nicely padded. If it was possible, I would have ridden with boxing gloves back then. But over time I transitioned to buying good grips and therefore slowly transitioned to no padding or very minimal padding i.e an extra layer of material. I find now that I get far less callouses plus I can "feel" the bike better especially what the front wheel is doing.

    Agreed. Check out Giro DND gloves, which have been my staple for the last few years. MSRP is about $25, but you can usually find them for about $10-$12 at Jenson or Amazon.

    My leather work gloves are less than $10 a pair, but get soaked with sweat in the summer. The upside is that they protect the hands very well.
    Don't post, ride.

    I usually order 4 pair at a time, from Aliexpress... $15/each, or $55 each from the LBS.

    Specialized BG gel long finger gloves. Right out the back door...

    I'm with Jayem on this one I order all of my Gloves for Cycling off of Revzilla.com The Moto Shops make all the best ones and Revzilla even makes full finger out of breathable leather with more leather around the palm and Gauntlet gloves that cover your wrists to protect in the event of a crash

    Heres their buying guide video that describes the ones for different season

    Cheers
