    Once we are below about 5 degrees, I switch from my Gorewear “whatevers” to my Klim Windstopper gloves. These are really a lightweight motorcycle glove but are highly breathable and have great grip and dexterity. they survive rain ok for a couple of hours too. About £50 iirc. Best Winter mtb/gravel gloves I ever used!

    I have been really, really surprised by my Madison Isoler merino thermal gloves – they were £1.89 in the sale for ‘cool’ rather than cold weather – plus they do better in the wet than I expected.

    For properly cold days I now have my climbing liner gloves (Powerdry from Montane or cheapo ‘magic’ gloves) and then either a Sealskins waterproof (longer cuff, keep turning inside out, warm though with liners) or Sealskins softshell (easy on and off, warm, zero water resistance and seem to have a limit where you just freezte at around freezing) or Madison Sprint (they are very sweaty, huge seams, with a liner they work in a fashion, but overall don’t bother).

    I was eying up the nice Pearl Izumi gloves in Bikesters sale though….

    I like Defeet Dura gloves. Buy two pairs and if it’s too cold for one pair then put the other ones on over the top. I’m generally ok down to 0°c with one pair but carry the other pair in my pack. Only switch to Sealskinz if it’s minging out.

    For down to freezing £6 fleece gloves from Sports Direct. The XL/large size is actually large enough for big handsNice loose fit and had some rubber gripper dots on the palm.

    Any colder and the fit is loose enough for a pair of silk gloves inside.

    For MTB I cant find anything better than 100% briskers, warm enough for all but the very coldest days but still give enough feel to ride properly. They do have a stupidly short cuff for a winter glove though, I get around it by wearing a very long sleeved base layer and overlapping the gloves.

    Sealskins used to make a windproof glove that was awesome, warm, decent protection, thin enough, long cuff etc but they stopped doing them.

    I have loads of gloves because my hands get very cold very quickly and I am always looking for the perfect pair. The RAB gloves mentioned above are my latest fave. At first I thought they weren’t going to hit the spot because after a few miles my hands felt cool. After twenty miles I realised they had not got any cooler and were perfectly comfortable. I haven’t taken them out in subzero temps yet so we will see. Oh, and they are nowhere near as big as they look on the RAB website.

    Currently got the brisker hydromatic which are comfy but the short cuff is rubbish and they have a hole in the palm of and they aren’t very warm

    I rotate between these planet x gloves and these castelli gloves on my road/gravel bike and the usual brisker gloves on my MTB.

    Available elsewhere and I’ve not paid anything like that… first paid I got in the shop at FOD on sale but since bought another pair as well.. sizing is quite small…

    These replace Briskers when its too cold… (I get horribly cold hands and feet) .. though lost my Briskers last year
    Very waterproof though…. and long cuffs

    Venitex fleece lined leather jobs from ebay. The original version of the expensive Snow Shepherd ski gloves at about 12 quid. Brilliant. Not waterproof for a day long down pour but fine for an hour or two or long damp days. Alternatively any old waterproof walking type glove or even cheap fleece from the Saturday market.
    For flat bars, Pogies.

    My go to winter gloves are my old Seal Skin ones, they’re about 10 years old. They’ve needed the thumb snot wipe stitching a few times but apart from that they’ve been very good. I especially like the cuff, it’s a perfect length and shape to seal over your jersey sleeve.

    Look similar to these:

    Waterproof All Weather Glove

    The lobster type look good too:

    Waterproof Extreme Cold Weather Cycle Split Finger Glove

    They even do a heated glove for the folk with bad circulation:

    Waterproof Heated Cycle Glove

    But they’re very pricey

    100% Briskers with towelling sweat bands. Gets around the need for long cuffs to be part of the actual glove in this case.

    Bought some DHB Extreme last year when cheap and they were more than adequate through the (Southern Scotland) 21/22 winter.

    My DHb ones are warm but the palm disintegrated. Don’t know if they fixed that issue. They are ok otherwise.

    I have loads, very jealous of you people that don’t get cold hands. I don’t suffer the cold in any other way (feet are fine in icy water). I’ve got windproof and thicker waterproof and lobster types. DHB, planet X mostly Silk liners too for a bit of a boost if needed.

    Sealskins are nice, expensive unless on offer. Altura have been good also.

    Another vote for the Galibier gloves, either the Barrier Deep Winter, or the leather gloves for me

    I have complained before about the tininess of Briskers. I couldn’t even get the XXL ones over my palms so I never found out if the fingers fitted

    I’m a fan of briskets having tried all sorts over the years. To get around the small cuff I wear wristbands – any old cheap tennis player style ones to bridge any gap between glove and top – works a treat!

    I have always worn Briskers in mtb. Although I’m currently in Royal Racing Storm gloves instead. They’re not waterproof but my hands seem to broadly stay warm in them.

    Still never found decent fitting gloves for road that keep my hands warm down at 0 or below though. The Planet X lobster gloves are the warmest I’ve got but they’re a bit weird with the paired fingers.
