    Winte gloves with padding?
    Can anyone recommend a good cold weather glove that has palm padding similar to what you'd find in a summer glove? Looking for decent insulation and wind-proofness, comfortable down to freezing or even a bit below. (if it gets that cold, I usually use pogies)

    i find any heavy cross-county ski gloves work well. for more padding look at snow/ski "park gloves or terrain park gloves"

    I like my Pearl Izumi Softshell Gel gloves. If it gets below freezing, I add a thin liner.

    I agree with this, I have a pair of Yoko Thermo gloves that work very well in the cold, but they are not padded. I have also used some cheaper work gloves from Home depot that had padding. I tend to like non padded, form fitted, pre-curled gloves. Ice climbing gloves work well for instance. I think there are a bunch of options though, from Pearl Izumi lobster mitts to Gore bike wear windstopper gloves to leather Ski patrol gloves (bunch of options there too). There are a few options for Pearlu Izumi gloves that have padding and windstopper material, I there was one called the Cyclone that had padding. I just got some One industries gloves from Chain Reaction that I hope will be good for the windy Fall and Spring seasons in MN.

    The 45N Sturmfists are great for cold Wx.

    Bontrager RXL gloves are quite good as well.

    Thanks for the suggestions so far. Craft seems to offer a few interesting options-anyone tried them?

    Got some Specialized winter riding gloves a couple of years ago from my LBS. They are
    Wind proof, warm and have some good palm padding. The back has a little padding/insulation too. I use them below 40 deg. F., to mid 20s. My hands sweat in them on long rides, but they're the best cold riding gloves I've used. Below those temps I use my big motorcycle gloves.

    Camel back cold weather gloves. Fantastic.
