Thanks to those who mentioned the Glacier gloves as I remembered reading a very positive review on them last winter but never got round to buying any. I'd completely forgotten about them but have just bought a pair of these.
Good, waterproof, winter MTB gloves..do they exist?
Glad someone was listening regarding Glacier gloves. So many cycling gloves fail to do their job.
I missed out on the Lidl gloves Looks like its some expensive Glacier Gloves then
What temperature can you use them up to? ie I use finger less gloves to about 10 degrees, then my fingers get a bit cold. I'm guessing Glaciers are too warm above zero?
What cheap full finger glove for autumn ?
I found all the waterproof gloves I bought would get sweaty on a long climb, and that was the end of being warm. I have a large box of expensive gloves that are only good for an hour or so riding in poor conditions.
The best gloves I got were hairy wool gloves from Tesco for £5. Luckily I bought several because I haven't seen them since. They could handle a bit of light drizzle and snow because it would bead on the hairs instead of soaking through. I used to carry a spare pair inside my base layer and if they got damp, I'd swap them over.
They were so good I used them in 3 'Puffers. 3-4 pairs were good for the 24 hours. They're all worn out now and I haven't seen anything else to replace them.
The very best solution is a set of handlebar muffs (Pogies), but in a wet country where so many people won't fit mudguards, I suppose that won't be a popular suggestion. Then any thin breathable glove does the job.
Hey man go for some Gore gloves you won't regret it.
