No winter kit is complete without warm fingers.
You've got your winter kit dialed with the warmest bibs, thermal jersey, and element-blocking jacket that money can buy, but don't leave your digits as an afterthought. Wrap them up with the Gore Bike Wear Power Gore Windstopper Glove for wind-splitting warmth that keeps your digits dexterous when the temperatures dip.
The gloves begin with a soft and fleecy lining that traps heat and wicks away sweat, for the perfect warm foundation to build on. A durable polyester shell protects the back of your hand, along with a polyester-elastane palm that offers stretch where you need it, so you have flexibility to shift and maneuver on the bike. The palm also gets decked out with foam padding at the heel and forehand to absorb vibrations from rough roads. Between layers you'll find lofty polyester wadding that adds a boost to thermal insulation, so you can retain warmth, while breathing and wicking away sweat, so you don't end up with clammy hands. Because cold weather riding often happens during the months with short days and little sunlight the Power Gore WindStopper gloves have a reflective band along the fingers, so motorists can be made more aware of your presence, and your next move when they see you flash in their headlights.

Almost My Winter Slop MTB Glove
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Sick of having frozen digits when I returned home after rides in late fall/winter/early spring, I picked these up among a few other pairs of windproof / winter gloves to ride my mountain bike when the weather gets nasty. These were my close second choice of glove. I typically wear mediums (I bought mediums) and have a 7 3/4" length from finger tip to wrist length and 9" circumference at the widest part of the palm.
They're relatively warm, without being overly insulated or bulky. This was a big factor for me - I like my MTB gloves pretty tight so I can get a decent grip on the bars. These are pretty good about it, with the exception of the pinky being too long.
The Gore Windstopper I would expect to have done wonders. I have other ski touring gloves that have Windstopper that are fantastic and breath well in high aerobic activity and would have expected this to have been no exception. I also liked the build of the palm and the elastic bits on the fingertips.
If you're in need of a new pair of gloves for cold weather commuting, cyclocross, or mountain biking (road too I suppose), these are a fantastic option. Feel free to reach me at my direct line 801.204.4547 or my email firstname.lastname@example.org
