Glove Liners

Hey, It's starting to get a little chilly at night round here enough that i want a little more warmth in my hands.

I was thinking of using glove liners to wear under my pigsfeet, I tried using some cheap ones i got @ a sporting goods store, but they're too thick, makes the grip feel off.

Does anyone do this?

Its just a comfort thing, i like wearing my leather gloves witch provide very little warmth, but some accident protection, and at night it gets cold, mostly only the hands.

I guess some really thin like silk liners are what im looking for. Ive got a helmet one

Yes, I've tried silk liners with great success in winter - can't abide those chubby "winter-weight" gloves that rob all your feel.

I found them locally here: Silk Socks & Glove Liners - New Zealand Nature

Geeze. It may not get cold in L.A., but 90 miles north it's getting cold. I rode home late tonight through mountain fog and sub-freezing temperatures - yeah, in California. I had Alpinestars Sp-2 gloves on, which normally would result in totally frozen fingers. However, I was wearing thin, nitrile rubber gloves under the Alpinestars to block the wind. This helps a LOT, but I still lust after a pair of Gerbing's T5 heated gloves.

Just bought these from cycle gear for $9.99 and will be wearing them tomorrow as the temps drop below freezing here in north Texas.

I've had plenty of nights in topanga that get to the 30s.

How often do you ride your motorcycle? Out of curiosity?

Rubber huh. Interesting. Might be something to try, but seems like it would be uncomfortable, sticky.

Often i tote my backpack to teach, but if i can go without it on the daily i prefer to, its nice to be able to stuff a neckwarmer and liners behind my flyscreen, and be comfy without alot of clothing on during the day and the don them for my commute home.

I went to the store found a pair of liners then walked around and found a good looking pair of gloves that the liners on my hands would fit in. Now this works good for temps from the mid 50s to mid 40s, anything below that look at a light weight or full weight winter gloves.

In the summer more than in the winter, naturally. I'd estimate that I ride to work about four days a week in the summer, and about one day a week in the winter. It's a 38 mile ride that starts at home in the mountains and ends out in the desert.

The rubber gloves are not so great, just better than getting frostbite. I've tried a couple of winter gloves so far and hated them, but I'll be trying again this winter.

They are not rubber, they are wind proof thermal breathable glove liners. The picture makes them look kinda like scuba gloves though.

Edit: I see you were not talking about mine but actually rubber gloves. Oops

Yeah I know, who wears disposable rubber gloves as glove liners, right? I learned this trick from a fellow employee a couple of years ago. We were both totally cash-strapped, so we were taking our used (but clean) gloves from work to keep our hands from freezing when they got wet during a commute.

I work at XCOR Aerospace as a rocket propulsion engineer, doing a variety of things, but specializing in the design, manufacture, testing, and integration of propellant pumps and other aspects of the engine thermodynamic cycle.

We went through very lean times a few years ago, but I stuck around because rockets are awesome.

I will be breaking them out tonight for the ride home for the first time. They are going under my alpinestars "Drystar" winter gloves. I will report back with results.

I recently bought these (Arctiva Thermolite Glove Liners - RevZilla) to wear under my Sedici Torino gloves. They are comfortable enough, but I've only tried them once so far and my pinky and ring fingers still got mighty cold on a night ride from Santa Monica to Los Feliz. Who knows how much colder they'd have been without though. Thinking about trying my ski gloves out of curiosity.

They're pretty thin; fit under my riding gloves just fine.

Well after a 20 min ride home at about 38 degrees F I can say that I am happy with the liners. My hands were still warm after taking my gloves off. I hope these work in freezing and below freezing temps as well as they did last night. I will be exchanging them for the next size up tho. I thought the tighter the better but they were a bit too tight and started squeezing my finger tips too much. I give em two toasty thumps up especially for the $10

Heate gloves are the way to go. If you use the heated jacket 50 and above, you can still wear your summer gloves because the jacket will heat your core and the warm blood will heat your hands. Below 50, you will need thicker gloves/heated gloves

Ok so I went to exchange the freeze out liners for a bigger size and have been riding for a good 35-40 mins and its 36F weather app says feels like 27F and these things are crap. Finger tips are not only numb but the liners squeeze the tips making for a very uncomfortable ride. Guess I will have to ask santa for heated gloves for X-mas.

I find the glove liners work well, but you must also do something to keep the wind off your hands if you ride below about 40F with them on.

Something like these:

Which is what I have fitted to mine right now.

Well, I've been wearing these Arctiva glove liners, and i gotta say, they are pretty nice.

Last night it had to have been about 47-50f, (minus wind-chill)one of the coldest nights here this winter, and the liners made a big difference. Grip with my pigsfeet over them is only slightly awkward, and after a bit of riding, it became almost like a second mode of riding.

Also, they are great to wear without any gloves on really, thin enough that i still have good tactile sense in pockets, i basically just keep them on now at night, unless I'm indoors!

Thanks for the recommendation bacis!

One more thing to note. This combo of liners and gloves for relatively mild climates is great, but if it's raining, it's completely worthless

I just got home after riding in the rain for about 30-45 mins from Universal Studios to Venice, and my hands, thighs and toes were completely numb. Thank god i have a bathtub. 30 min soak and I'm back to normal.

I need to remember that the weather changes, and plan better, or just buy a decent pair of winter riding gloves lol
