Red face Glove recommendation

It's starting to get a bit chilly down here and I'm in need of some warmer riding gloves. Could definitely use some recommendations - I have big mitts and I'm looking for something that will keep me warm when temps get to the 40s on some of these mornings...but maybe be not to warm/thick for the 70's? Anyone have any suggestions? As always, I heart you wristtwisters

I guess your use to the warmer temps so 40's could be like winter for you? I'd just use regular ole riding gloves at that temp.

...a little of both, actually. I'm really accustomed to being warm, so yeah, low 70's with wind chill equals me a bit nippy.

Edit:

So where are the tips from the Northeners?!?!?! Surely there is some brand loyalty I can emulate!

I just bought some Held Narvik Winter Gloves. They are plenty warm into the 40's.

Here's a pretty good review of some winter riding gloves, including the Held.

I know someone who uses these here in Denver, CO where it can get pretty frigid. They swear by them, not sure about the protection tho.

Here is a review

And here is where they sell them, $180 is a little steep for me.

I just use my veloce gloves until it get's down to freezing. you guys crack me up in the warm climates, there is no better sleeping weather then about 40 degrees and the windows wide open in the house, or better yet, a tent. But I complain about the heat when it starts hitting above 70...

If your not going to ride much in the rain I'd recommend the $45 JoeRocket Rush Gloves. Buy one size larger. THe waterproof inner liner is not the way to go for rain.

The Lee Parks gloves are my favorite. It's amazing that gloves with such thin insulation can keep you so warm. And they do work great with heated grips.

Everyone south of the Mason-Dixon line: your advice on cold weather gloves is laughable.

It was a balmy 7 deg C this morning (45 Fahrenheit) in Kamloops, BC, so I took the 919 to work. I wore my KTM Supermoto gloves.

70 F & up: Icon Hooligan gloves (perf leather shorties)
40 - 70 F: Any leather glove with a gauntlet (I have some nice KTM Supermoto gloves that I wore today)
20 - 40 F: Leather snowmobile gloves (FXR brand)
Under 20 F (not recommended): 'Lobster' style snowboard glove - only has 3 digits - thumb, index + middle together, ring & pinkie together. If you get a clear, cold day in mid-January after they have thoroughly salted the roads, this is the only way to go. (Same style as the Aerostich Triple Digit raincovers).

Depending on the size glove that you wear and if you've bought any yet, I have a pair of Joe Rocket Nitrogen gloves that are really nice gloves that I've only worn 2-3 times. I ended up realizing that I bought a size too small and they just won't work for me. I really actually hate that because I like the gloves a lot, they just don't fit me. They are size MED and are all black and pretty warm.

I could probably let them go for 40 plus shipping.

Here is a link to them. http://www.newenough.com/gloves/insu...le_gloves.html

2003 Honda 919 - flapper mod, Clear Alternatives Smoke Tailight w/ integral turn signals, Stebel Nautilus air horn, DIY fender eliminator, LED license plate bolts, LED front turn signals, no resistor or new flasher so I blink like crazy.

Darn JoeRocket and his one size small gloves! Same problem I had with mine. But, they were so warm for the price I bought the next size up right away and just waited for someone to grab the extra set outa the classifieds. Cant beat em for the price
