Contemplating putting my hippo hands on for the winter I realized I have a plethora of riding gloves, something for about every 10 degree increment in weather for 0 to 80F. Actually some are leftovers from snow skiing (the mittens are 30 years old and still the warmest of the bunch) and for winter bicycling (the 7V Gerbings) One of the best deals I found lately was the Cevapro, $30 snow skiing gloves off Amazon but warmer than the high buck Tourmaster winter gloves. With the hippo hands I can use lighter weight gloves down to 10F or so, bring on the snow!

A guy I worked with could not pass up an LED light, that is quite a collection.

I am going with my old Harley D gloves, thinking about grip heater.

All our snow got rained off and blew away the last few days so we are back to nothing again, sigh.

I was looking at these gauntlet style that I matched because of the red accents. I had similar Cabela's snowmobile gloves that the fabric has finally given up and couldn't find a cost effective replacement till now...

Makes me sad I couldn't get my hands on a pair. They used to make them right down the road from me (in Central Illinois) and I know some people that used to work in his shop. So I ride with cheap knockoffs...

not quite, the ones I got are listed under Yobenki for some reason https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07WNLRRKQ?ps ... asin_image
waterproof and touchscreen enabled as bonuses. And the Hippo hands come up pretty regularly on ebay, usually in the $50-$90 range

I just ordered two different pairs of gloves from the CycleGear yesterday. Old Icon gloves are done with their service.

Roland Sands Rourke Gloves - Black
1. https://www.cyclegear.com/gear/roland-s ... s-closeout

Bilt Interstate Gloves:
2. https://www.cyclegear.com/gear/bilt-interstate-gloves

Will see how they fit and how comfortable they are.

Electrically heated Gerbing gloves. Heated grips don't heat the whole hand just the part that touches. Insulated-only gloves need your body to create the heat at a higher rate than the cold weather zaps it away. Good luck. Hippos Hands keep the snow, ice, rain, and wind off of the hands. Use heated gloves with Hippo Hands and you have a winning combination. But, make sure to support the Hippo Hands so at speed they don't ride the clutch and brake levers. Use a dirt bike hand guard protector to give that support.

What you're looking for is both GoreTex and WindTex fabric liners. Conserves body heat AND keeps the cold out. Still running Olympia leather winter gauntlets here - good feel for the controls, and pretty much bulletproof. Only maintenance is rubbing mink oil into the seams to seal them as needed.

PS ... the shield scrapers on the thumbs is a nice touch!

Commercial fishing gloves.

At $15, they're cheap, durable, 100% wind and waterproof, warm. Room for silk liners when really cold.

I got a pair of these at cycle gear and cant say enough good about them for the price:

https://www.cyclegear.com/gear/sedici-a ... lsrc=aw.ds

Been in 35 degree temps with POURING rain
Hands stayed toasty warm and Dry without hand guards or heated grips
Even at 70-80 mph on the freeway commute to work

Word of caution: I usually take a Xlg in mens gloves
I had to buy these in 4X and those felt tight in the fingers until they broke in

after a week or 2 they fit perfect
Way too warm in temps over 60 to 70 degrees
They are armored and offer almost track/racing glove style scapular protection

Gloves. I have a few.

Aerostitch elkskin. Easily the most comfortable gloves I own. Recurring treatment with a pricey leather balm restores their appearance and durability.
Shown without gauntlet, and with. Unlined, but versions with insulation are available.
Silk glove liners. Adds a bit of warmth when the seasons are changing.
Image


Joe Rocket Burner textile heated gloves. Uses recharegable lithium-ion batteries to provide 3 heat levels. Decent enough, but their comparatively modest construction reminds me why I tend to seek out other brands first.
Masley Cold Weather Flyers. Genuine mil-issue. Nomex and Gore-Tex lining. Robust construction. Fairly priced for what you get.
Rubber dishwashing gloves. A snug but not uncomfortable fit over the aforementioned elkskins. When a frogchoker is unavoidable.
Image


Milwaukee demolition gloves. Fabric construction, not as robust as the name implies, comfortable for the warmest days.
Wells Lamont Grips leather chore gloves. Purchased in a 3-pack at Costco. Requires a sweaty day to set the mold to your hands, but when that occurs, they're like a second skin.
Image


Free bonus:
NOS Belstaff insulated leather winter gloves.
