Gloves!

This morning was rather Chili and it is time to find some heavier gloves.
I have been looking at New Enough dot com, but not sure what gloves I would want. Some are $40 and others $120. I do not see a difference on paper. So I am open to suggestions.

My requirements, warn and waterproof without being too bulky.

This link provded for reference purposes only because it was the 1st one I found. Available at many BMW dealerships or elsewhere online.

These are my cold weather gloves. They're far better than I need for winter, capable of more brutal winter than we get.

I love my Held 'Steve' gloves. Not exactly a winter glove, add a set of heated grips and your hands should be toasty warm.

Hey Hondaguy:
Did you buy any winter gloves yet? I came here and was going to ask the same question you did - and had looked at the same stuff on the net. I'm leaning toward the Tourmaster Carbon winter gloves. Anyone out there have these? Good or bad?

i use some dumbass olympias..they're warm enough but don't offer chit in the way of safety features

either that or layer up w/ thin gloves underneath but i don't think that will work for really cold stuff

I got some Tourmaster Winter gloves a few days ago. They are on NewEnough for like $80 but I got them from a guy for $50.

They are more bulky than a summer glove but they arn't so bulky that you can't hit your signals or use your leavers. The important part is that they are very warm. They come with a finger squeegy and a little rain coat for each glove.

For those interested, I went with the Tourmaster Elite winter glove that Mr Sneaky referenced above. First impression and ride were very positive. 36 degrees this morning for my 20 minute ride into work and hands did not get cold. Gloves seem to offer good cold protection without too much bulk making it quite easy to use all/any of the bar controls. Two thumbs up.

$ 45.00 + shipping depending on color & size as they are on CLOSEOUT.



Unless you can tell me the model & brand you are looking for, I won't be that much of a help (Living in Miami, Florida) on cold weather apparel

LOL fair enough

I'll dig in deep on Monday and see what I can come up with.

Can you at least give me the size and color? This would make it easy when looking for closeouts.

I am between a large and extra large dpending on who makes it.
Since they are winter glove, an XL will probably be fine.
My bike is blue - so black, silver, or blue is fine.

OK, take a look at this gloves, they are NOT the best but those are the cheapest I have seen and they don't look half bad as others.

I can do those for $ 39.95 (Shipping Included to the Continebtal US) or, if you can wait, I'll take them for the Shin-dig at JetBlast and you save on the shipping.

XX, couldn't find the Pink ones you wanted so... you're on your own

I have always liked the Alpinestar line of leather and apparel but because I went to a Teknic Seminar yesterday and I saw the gloves, touched them and tried them on, I am going to tell you that they seemed like very good gloves as well and for the price, you can't go wrong.

Also, read about the componentes used on that glove compared to others... Remember, I sell all of them so I don't really care nor I'm bias towards a brand.



The FREEWAYS were also cool but were not INSULATED so i can't say whether they will hold in a cold day or not.

By the way, just for information purposes, the A/Stars SR-3 Drystar gloves are also $59.95

RC90 - The thunders might be the ticket! Have you tried them on? How is the inner liner. it is frustraign when they move when you pull your hand out of them. I hate having to align every finger as I put a pair of gloves one. Big complaint with my current gloves.

Nope, no problems at all pulling your fingers out. as the matter of fact, one of the first thing he mentioned was the fact that the liner would never pull out (it was impossible were his words to which then he said... unless you try very hard.)

I haven't ridden (sp?) a bike in such a long time that all the gloves felt funny when I tried them on but I have to tell you that one particular thing I liked about this Winter gloves (I literally try them both because of this thread, otherwise, I wouldn't give 2 craps about it living in Miami ) was that it felt like a regular glove (being a leather glove is not bad as well as it keeps the glove thin), I don't remember having an issue with the liner in or out.

Their top of the line boot was bad-ass as well as their top of the line 1pc suit... made me wanna buy a bike just to go pose at the next bike night... Hell, I just may buy them and wear them while driving my truck

I wouldn't worry about it to much 4manhilt, those gloves were on closeout and no longer available... They were ICONs though.

thanks. i probably wouldn't buy icon anyway. i bought some alpine stars (sr-1 i think) the other day, but have not worn them yet. i am considering returning them because they have no Armour protection. basically just a cold weather glove. i live in Texas and the cold weather season is so short that i hate to spend a lot on a winter glove.
