    Winter Riding Gloves
    Looking for recommendations on cold-weather gloves. I've got PI Cyclone and Gavia gloves and they're useless if it's below 40f (or wet). Plus, the fit/padding isn't the most comfortable.

    PI Amfib gloves have worked well for me down into the teens if I'm generating some heat. I haven't tried too many others. My even-colder-weather option is some lobster mitts.

    I wear Amfib gloves thru the coldest of winter night rides and my hands are generally toasty.

    I have been using these for years, riding regularly in the teens & 20's, they always keep my hands warm & they are cheap! They last about a year with regular use. I grew tired of spending loads of cash trying cycling specific gloves only to have them dissappoint. Then my contractor friend turned me on to these, as he has to work outside, year round, no matter what the temp, & he swears by them. Best thing about these is the dextarity, they are very close to running standard gloves. For the record, I have whimpy hands that get cold easily. :rolleyes:

    Damn, those cost 25% of what the AmFibs go for. I'm going to try some.

    I like the lifetime warranty that PI offers. I'm going on season 3 on this pair. My last pair lasted me 11 years.

    I like the Amfib's too. We've also been selling a good bit of the Gore gloves. excellent quality and very warm. Good in the wet of course too. not cheap, about $10 more than the equivalent PI glove, but you get the waterproofness of gore.

    Those look great!
    Do they sell them anywhere around Denver, or do you mail order them?

    I would imagine a good lumber store may have them? Have never seen them in Home Depot or Lowes though. I mail ordered mine though. Just make sure they are this model. There is another model that does not have the waterproof lining, just as warm, but not waterproof.

    Agreed, I've got a super old pair of PI amphibs - maybe 8 years old? I even wear them snowboarding sometimes! They are just about shot now, but I just can't let them go. Good product. Now I just need to find another pair w/o the gauntlet cuff.

    I would buy them again.

    I picked up a pair of PI Amfibs (which feel mighty toasty), but I'm tempted to give these a try:

    PI has a lifetime warranty on warm gloves that never wear out? That sucks.

    I still have to use the lobsters when it's really bitter cold though....may be obsolete with global warming though.

    PI vs. PalmFlex
    I am giving up on PI gloves, they fall apart too soon. I am checking out the PalmFlex Winter gloves, the price is right!

    I found something really similar to these. They are called Western Safety Cold weather waterproof work gloves. I bought a pair for $15 at the Harbor freight in Aurora today. They have a grippy palm, fleecy warm liner, thinsulate 40 g insulation, and they are thin enough to get a good grip.
    I haven't ridden with them yet, but they seem to be just the type of glove I was looking for.
    I don't like the "western safety" lettering on the back, but I don't really care. Here they are:

    +1, I bought some cold weather PI gloves last year and they pretty much instantly started coming apart at the seams after one very mellow ride. :nono:

    One of my riding buddies bought two pairs of the Bald Eagle gloves recommended here- those look like a great way to go.
