Good pipe gloves
 
Im looking to get some gloves for the warmer days, something waterproof enough so that if i have to put my hands down its not going to be a problem. I just want them for warmer days like 20-50 degrees because i already have a pair of warm mittens for the cold days and for pow, so having a thinner cooler pair would be nice.
any recommendations would be awesome :D

Get something Gortex or leather. Do you need gauntlets or short cuffs? I'm guessing short cuff if its for warm weather. I have a couple pairs of Level gloves specifically for spring riding, though I can wear them year round with liners. They are pretty good, but they aren't waterproof. If you are putting your hands down a lot, you're going to soak through no matter what and you will tear up your gloves even if you have some super burly gloves like from Mountain Hardware.

Pow actually makes a line of gloves that's meant for warm weather/pipe riding, you might want to check em out:

Pow Light Style

They're really solid gloves and they hold up really well.

I second POW gloves. I have the POW high five gloves and they are awesome!

Hmm, i found my POWs to be squishmittens to be honest. i bought them for spring riding and they would get wet from only touching the corn ice on my bindings.

I use Dakine Broncos and have found them to be almost light enough for spring/summer riding, but warm enough if it turns cold. They are gortex lines and ive never had troubles with moisture getting in.

What do you guys think about these? Celtek Misty Glove - Men's from Dogfunk.com
The reviews seem good, anyone have experience with them?

i have celtek spring gloves and the waterproofing blows. it gets wet very easily but it looks tight though and i like the grippy palm on it. those gloves you are looking at look like they'll soak up like a sponge.

I dont know much about celtek (i havent really seen them down here), but those look like snow sponges with rubber grips on the palm.

Weird about the pow gloves getting wet, did you use the waterproofing that comes with it?

The upper end pow gloves have goretex and come with nikwax waterproofing as well.
