Default Gloves

I have the hardest time keeping my hands warm...I mean they get numb and then when they finally start to get feeling back they hurt like hell. I have some Polar Edge gloves that I got at Academy Sports, and fair to say they suck...So what gloves should I get?

Try mits.
I personally am not a fan, but have gotten a pair regardless and love the warmth.

That is the beginning phase of frostbite. You can try mitts, or purchase a decent pair of gore-tex insulated gloves.

These are the ones I have and I love them. Not too pricey and a real value.

DAKINE Titan Gloves from Backcountry.com

They have removable inserts for added warmth on cold days or less insulation on warm days. I don't wear mittens but I know some people who like the added warmth from their fingers being together. I don't have any first hand experience with any brands though, I just don't like the lack of dexterity

It seems Gore-Tex is what I am missing. The ones I have were some crap thinsulate not waterproof stuff. Thanks for the tips!

keep them dry is key... if im riding for the day i take two pairs sometimes, leave one in the car then half way through i'll swap

get good quality mitts/ gloves... and make sure they fit, too big can account for loss of heat

I got some Burton Gore Gloves, with the liner they keep me nice and warm and gore-tex keeps my hands from being soaked. They also got a zipper pocket on top of each hand for warmers, which I really haven't used but I suppose they are useful. Had them for 3 years I think, and after beating the hell out of them on east coast ice (I occasionally do fall =[), I only see 2 small places where stitching is coming apart, and haven't done anything to fix lol.
