Hi,

Has anybody tried any of these gloves? I'm looking for some winter gloves, last year i made do with a pair of thin fleece gloves underneath my summer gloves so i really need to get something a bit better, though I'm not particularly flush so don't wan't to pay a massive amount.

    I've spent a small fortune over the years trying to find a good pair of winter gloves. I've realised that like everything in life, you generally get what you pay for. For the last few years I've used Specialized 'Lobster' winter gloves. My forefinger and thumb still get cold after an hour in -6C but I can still manage a 2-3 hour ride fairly comfortably.

    As the previous poster said, you do get what you pay for. I bought the top pair of SealSkinz thermal gloves last year and I was happy with the results. I don't intend to upgrade/change to another pair this year as they served me well last winter.

    Suffered for years. Pearl Izumi lobster changed all that

    Facebook? No. Just say no.

    Everyone says you can't use gears with them, but I rode for 4 winter months riding these gloves, never had a problem using the gears and always had toasty hands, never got cold fingers..... Oh, and they're cheap; don't look very pro though!!!
