/ Recommend me some Winter Cycling Gloves
- Warm - down to 0C
- Reasonably non-bulky
- Hard wearing
Thanks for any suggestions. Cheers, Si
If Aldi still have any left they are the best £5.00 I have ever spent on gloves
Bought them 2 years ago and was so impressed I bought another pair, the 2nd pair are still unused with the tags on (no not for sale)
Too warm for anything but really cold, strangley I wear a pair of £20.00 gloves for anything a bit warmer
The Skytech ones from the gloves for scottish winter thread will probably be great. It's what I'll be using.
sealskinz lobster mitts. Best winter bike gloves Ive ever used.
I've got various ones, but I had some windproof material ones that have been good - a bit knackered now so need to replace, but planet X is doing something that looks very similar. http://www.planet-x-bikes.co.uk/i/q/CLPXWINGL/planet_x_wind_block_gloves I might go for them.
For really gnarly weather, -10 or lower I wear Marmot XTs http://marmot.com/products/xt_glove?p=216,204 Quite a lot more in price but I used mine for ice climbing too.
I did a CX race today and it's been below freezing all day. Was completely fine with some cheap decathlon winter gloves, I think these are the closest: http://www.decathlon.co.uk/warm-gloves-5-black-white-id_8217865.html but mine cost quite a lot less.
So overall windproof a reasonably loose. Good luck.
Now keeping you feet warm in cold temps whilst cycling, that a whole different story! :) http://lightfromthenorth.blogspot.fi/2012/10/trail-riding-and-avoiding-cold-toes.html
Gloges = gloves if I put the light on and can see the keyboard.
Thanks for all advice - took a punt on the following - may work... if not cheap enough to use around garden etc:
I went out earlyish in the snow on Sat am, and had chilly toes (as usual) and toasty hands with my normal cheapy decathlon MTB gloves and a pair of Mammut windstoppers on top. Worked perfectly!
Only one type of glove that I use on the road bike now. Never had cold hands in them and although not waterproof/lightweight you'll be the envy of everyone around you...
The name - Dachteins Mitts....
Coo?! maybe not but you can also use them walking, belaying and winter climbing. Had the same pair for 3 or 4 years now.

This is one of the few times I wished UKC had smileys
Insert wide eyed astonished WTF smiley here
FWIW - just got my gloves (below) - tried them - seem to work in cold, drizzle.... . The inner glove is 'sticky' but keeps hand warm. The outer has fleecy inside which slips on the sticky inner easily and is toasty warm. Time will tell I guess
