What gloves do you ride with? Just thought I would see what popular opinion is about lighter weight riding gloves. I need a pair and want to know how they stack up.

Any decent "snocross" style gloves are great lightweight riding gloves, until it gets real cold out. I have a pair of Joe Rocket snocross gloves (no idea if they make'em anymore) and they are great on the warmer days. For the cold days I wear Doo X-Team winter gloves.

I bought these this year and love them so far. I have ridden in single digit temps and have not had cold hands yet. I am very impressed with these gloves. I've got caught riding in some rain and although the back of the glove was wet, the inside was still dry. The only thing that I don't like is that the suede on the palms seems to be "balling" up and a few of the black triangular pieces have come off, but non of that has affected the performance of them. I plan on buying a couple more pairs this fall to have when my current ones wear out. This is the only glove I've liked so sar in the several that I've tried.

I had a real bad problem of cold hands and frost bite on my finger tips.

Bought 4 differents kinds of gloves and mitts....nothing worked.

Finally Papa bought me the Xteam Skidoo leather gloves and they ROCK!!!

I love them.....when it hits 30 below I have to turn down the hand warmers as my hands get way too hot!!

Lightweight and fit my wrist mirror perfectly!!

I have a pair of the leather skidoo x gloves for cold weather riding. I just need to find a lighter pair for that 20's to 30's temp that is just too warm for my current glove. Nothing more annoying than sweaty hands and not being able to get comfortable especially when the trail is getting rough. I have looked at the skidoo gore tex for around fifty bucks but am wondering if there is others out their that have found that glove that works perfect for 20/30's weather.

What about Coldwave? Fox? and others?

I have been on the search for the "perfect gloves", too. Tried just about all of them. The ones I like so far are the nylon Doo X-Team gloves (regular price is about $70, I paid $35 at a pre-season show). My only complaint is that they are almost too insulated. My handwarmers have to be scorching hot for my hands to feel the warmth. Otherwise, these are the first gloves I have ever owned that my hands don't hurt after riding for a full day.

I found the "Perfect Glove" this year,

I have worn the Klim thin gloves all year, they are amazing to say the very least.
Keep a spare pair in the pack when the other pair gets wet

What model are they? I have looked at them and they have two thin pair. One is a velcro strap and the other is slip on.

for temps 15F and above i wear only motocross motor cycle gloves. 20-30 bux last typically about a season. i wear one pair and carry several others. as they get saturated i swap them for dry pair. when they get wet they are lighter and easier to dry out incase of need for more pairs then you have with you. thors phaze glove is nice. for the rides home after a hard day of playing in the powder, i like the kenai glove from RU otside. seem like they wont keep you warm but they are awesome. ski

The Vortex 3-in-one glove. Before this I always had to wear 3 finger mitts. Never found a glove to keep my fingers warm. I'm really happy with these. Been wearing them about 4 years now.

On sale now for $49.95
