The Best Gloves

I am wanting to buy nice, new gloves. They need to be reasonably warm and very flexible. I can spend no more than about 60. I have Grenade's that are completely destroyed but I really liked them...but is there any other god companies? I need pretty warm, flexible and amazingly comfortable gloves..

I have the 686 Active Pipe gloves. 10k/10k waterproof, they're very flexible and grippy. The only downside with them is that they're not wind resistant at all, which kind of sucks when sitting on lifts on windy/cold days. Other than that...they're awesome.

I just picked up some celtek viking mule gloves for about $50. They're 20k water resistant and entirely leather on the outside, which is why I picked them up. I haven't worn them outside yet, but they're comfy. I would recommend getting at least a size large, as the mediums fit kind of small. If you're lucky enough to have a bigger hand and need XL, here ya go:

I'm a big fan of rocking liners in gloves. Makes a hell of a difference, same deal as layering your clothing. I was using just pipe gloves with liners in, and only really felt the cold when it got to about -25C. Meant I was pretty mobile in them aswell as they were pretty thin overall. Then again you can kinda get used to the cold when your out in it every single day, so if you stick them in a thicker pair of gloves you'll be cooking.

I recommend Oakley gloves, I've had mine for 2 years now and they're just starting to tear a little bit. They're not heavyweight gloves but they're meduim weight and really damn warm. I do suggest you get gloves with liners, those will keep you super warm and happy as a bug! I got next year's Rome gloves for free so I'll have to ride with them this winter and tell you how they treat me!
