Thin gloves
I've been wearing a pair of Swany mittens this season, and they are pretty awesome for cold days. On warm days they are making my hands sweat like crazy though.

Can anybody recommend some thinner gloves for spring riding? Looking for something durable that will keep my hands dry.

I've been wearing these North Face TNF Apex for the last 3 years every day. From 40 degree down to -5, they have felt great. They aren't that thick at all and for some reason just work for me.

I read somewhere the suggestion of just buying work gloves from the hardware store.

I also bought a pair of these a while ago and they are pretty good for warm days.

Look for liftie gloves or goat leather work gloves. Apply some sno seal or nikwax to them to increase water repellentcy. Add a thin merino wool or polyester liner for a little warmth

nothing will keep your hands dry in spring

i wear the blue knitted kind from Ace, with the palm side and fingers dipped in grippy rubber, thinking of grabbing a second pair to switch to at lunch, because...

Power stretch gloves are pretty sweet. Warmish for a thin glove, secure and have decent dexterity. Hail to the POWER-STRETCH!

Pretty much nearly all outdoor brands have there own PS gloves (rab, extremities, northface).

if you want to drop some dough get some ice climbing gloves

On the topic of gloves, this is a pretty good article from a UK big wall climber, Andy Kirkpatrick. Gives a detailed insight on different glove/mitt designs and systems.

I found a good looking set of ice climbing gloves, but they are pretty pricey.

I found a red pair on ebay for 80 bux, but i might give cheap work gloves a try before I buy those.

I thought these stretch gloves might be ok too, they say they are water repellent

Thanks for the responses everybody, definitely steered me in the right direction.

Defcon are the best gloves I've ever owned for that application. They've outlasted every other pair I have and the seams and workmanship are great.Transistor and Kraken.
