    Default Gloves

    I'm looking for a pair of riding gloves that don't have a long gauntlet -- just a short cuff. Someone recommended Klim Powerxross gloves but they don't appear to be very warm. Anyone had experience with them? Could you use them as a shell and wear liners inside them? Other suggestions?

    Take a look at the Dakine short Scout glove, i've got the regular version of the Scout glove and they are very warm. I am also looking for a short glove for spring riding and am considering the Arctiva Comp RR 4 glove. http://www.google.com/products?q=dak...ed=0CBoQrQQwAA

    Default warm glove

    You want a warm, windproof, waterproof...bombproof glove, try the Pearl Izumi "Amfib". They have gone thru several versions and I've had them all. I don't ride in the winter (cold riding) without them. They are also my spring "get back to the truck after a long day of wet riding" gloves after my lightweight gloves have gotten soaked. Kinda pricey ($60-75) but well worth it. They usually last 2-3 seasons/pair and I definately put then through their paces.

    Default lightweight

    If I'm in the mood to spend dough, I like the dakine or MSR (the MSRs are waterproof). I've got an old pair of both. They have served me well. Otherwise I just use mechanics gloves. Not waterproof typically, that's why I have my back-up Pearl's.

    I have been using a pair of mechanics type glove that are slightly thicker, but not waterproof. I mainly don't like a typical loose or multilayer type glove, but wouldn't mind something more water and windproof without breaking the bank.

    Default I like the Klim gloves

    I use a pair of the Klim gloves and I like them. Mine have an inner glove, and an outer shell. They are light yet warm.

    I use these gloves. When its 10 above or warmer out. Great low-profile glove that is water poof and has great dexterity. Similar to mechanix gloves, just a warmer and is actually waterproof.

    Plus they come in camo, safety orange or lime, or even get him kevlar lined for cut resistant. Add a set of gaunlets to your handle bars these gloves are good to -20 or better if you have handlebar warmers.

    However I always have a pair of large waterproof windproof mitten in my pack in case temps really drop or have to spend an unexpected night out.
