when it gets cold I use swix cross country ski gloves and when it gets freezing out I use ice-armor ice fishing gloves...both gloves are super toasty and comfy.

Hey, i'm in the hunt for some decant winter gloves, for the cold days-down to minus 10c, but it seems like must of the winter good are only good down to the freezing temp? what about the offerings from Gore? They have a lot of options and its hard to know which would suite the best?

Hestra Bike Czone!

Last winter this glove made my winter! They are pretty waterproof, youre not getting to wet inside the glove because of sweat, they keep you warm, atleast to -10-13celcius.

I tried sealskinz and gripgrap.

stormp, which specific winter cycling glove models were you using prior to these, and what difference did you find in temperature effectiveness range?

Every time I get new winter gloves, I am always hopeful they will be better than my others. Then inevitably, I find my finger tips get cold at about the same temperature as for all my previous gloves, at about -1 or -2 C. I have been thinking that heated gloves might be the only solution to that. But maybe these are the ones?

Yes I have tried sealskinz and gripgrap. Cant really remember the model, but it should be their winter models.

I havent had any problems with freezing fingertips.. Thats usually the biggest issue.

I have the sealskins and wouldn't recommend. They are ok for about 2 hrs but causing hands to sweat and the inevitable cold sets in.
I have learned the best way (for me atleast) is to bring 2-3 pairs of gloves for longer rides in cold and wet conditions. Change gloves every 2 hrs. Sometimes I use a wind proof shell made by Answer, and bring multiple pairs of liners. That works well also.
I think my hands sweat more than others tho, because my hands get colder than others I ride with.

Lobster mittens with latex or nitrile gloves underneath to keep sweat from soaking them.

I might as well ask again about the availability of lobster liners, to use in lobster gloves.

Lobster Glove Liners thread from November 2009

I have the p I non lobster gloves. They are extremely warm but also bulky and hard to shift.
