    Need inexpensive cold-weather gloves?

    Try these: Firm Grip "Ski" gloves, available at Home Depot for $6.

    Had my hands get very cold the other morning on an early ride, so I stopped in at Home Depot to see what they had. They had these FG gloves that seemed pretty toasty, and were priced really well. Tried them this morning, and they are WARM.

    They are Firm Grip, with the logo FG printed on the glove. Apparently, the initials for Firm-Ass Grip didn't go over too well with Marketing.

    Drawbacks:

    Bulky. If your levers are close to your bars, it's tricky getting the fingers in and out of that space. They're a bit stiff, but maybe that will ease over time?

    No snot strip to wipe your nose.

    Untested for durability.

    Benefits:

    Palm and fingertips are covered with what seems to be a tougher, wind-resistant covering.

    My hands were not one bit cold this morning.

    There's a sort of stretchy band on the back of the wrist to keep them cinched up, but since it's stretchy, you can still get the gloves on/off without undoing it.

    Free bonus clip included to keep gloves together!

    Machine washable, apparently.

    Did I mention they are CHEAP???
