Over Gloves

edited October 2019 in Road buying advice
I have lost my over gloves so I am looking for recommendations for replacements. They were very old anyway.
Note that these are not to be winter gloves but windproof to go over mitts when it is chilly in the morning at this time of year and to be removed when it warms up.
Anything in particular to look at?

I am not sure. You have no chance.

    I thought you were looking for something for the kitchen.

    windproof to go over mitts when it is chilly
    Is there any glove that would go over mitts? Don’t mitts usually go over gloves? Can’t see how fingered gloves could be put on over mitts.

    Gloves over track mitts? Not something I do myself but that's all I can think it means.

    Exactly. Had a pair of wind proof and waterproof unpadded Nikes from circa 2009. Fitted over mitts.

    Rapha did the lobster claw ones and Assos do one (this is thinner) which more versatile. It's thinner material but does keep the wind rain off - NB it's not waterproof! there is a fancier one than this

    Might worth a bid if your size

    I have some of these, and they are windproof and a single layer so will fit over track mitts quite well (I do this as well, as I often use them on the way to work, then come back with just the mitts on - in fact I'll be doing that today).

    I have also had two pairs of Extremities windproof gloves over the years - not cycling specific but I have found their versatility second to none - will see me through temperatures from around 7-8c up to mid teens, plus they take a while to soak through in the rain. Just tried to find them on the web but cannot find the specific ones I have had. They were a gauntlet style glove with windproof material...actually, just found a link:

    Thanks for that. The Tiso ones look closest so far.
    Reminded me though that I have a pair of walking ones in a drawer that were deemed to be too cold for deep winter walking. :oops:
