Default Do pipe gloves keep you very warm?

I think pipe gloves look sweet but they really don't look warm/dont seem like theyd keep snow out.

Are there any real benefits to these over regular gloves/mittens?

I'm thinking about grabbing a pair for the heck of it, but should i just save my money?

I mostly use them in the spring. They don't have insulation and will freeze your fingers in a few hours. Although, on days when it's between 20-30 I'll slip on the liner from my goretex Burton gloves underneath the pipe gloves and my fingers stay toasty.

If its below freezing then it will probably be too cold to wear them. I use them all of the time in the late spring and summer.

Biggest thing I hate about normal gloves is how they turn your hands into fisting lumps. I hate wearing gloves doing anything, so not having any dexterity drives me nuts - which is something the pipe gloves obviously have.

Of course I ride above freezing temperatures like 2-3 days a year though, so I'm stuck with the lumpy fisters.

Pipe gloves are good for jogging! That's about it in my experience. They are usually just neoprene and make your hand sweaty.

I use them and I ride east coast where the average temp is 10-25 degrees. If its too chilly i put on liners or if im way up north i put on normal gloves.

Have you tried something like the Dakine Bronco, which is still quite low profile while still fairly warm. You can wear them with liners too for the really cold stuff.

Dang, if I run into some extra money I'm grabbing a pair of those. Sweet design, materials, and low price.

I definitely recommend them. They are low profile, tuck under your jacket cuffs easy, plenty warm and fairly stylish with different colourways to suit all the family haha. I have been wearing them in different models for, well ...since I started, due to them having goretex (i was so fucken unco and falling all the time and my regular gloves would be soaked in 1/2 an hour).

If you do manage to score some, make sure that when you get them that they are on the firm side of loose, or 'tight but still enough room to put a thin liner in). My second set that I purchased, I rather stupidly decided to go for mediums instead of larges but I think my hands might have been a touch to large for them (the dexterity was freakin awesome though) and the seams between the thumb and first finger blew out with in a season. The last set that I got have lasted me 3 seasons (roughly 60 days) and the wear on them is minimal.

I use them for mid winter riding (and use some POW pipe water sponges in spring) which probably averages +23 - +32 Deg F, but used them in -16F earlier this year no problems. If you prone to very cold hands, maybe look at Cobra, as a slightly warmer low profile alternative.

Not sure what you want to pay for em, and because I'm a G.C., heres some quickly sourced prices:

They got them on Evo for 60 at the moment Snowboard Gloves | evo

or 5c cheaper at Dogfunk DAKINE Bronco Glove - Men's from Dogfunk.com

and 5c cheaper for the 2012, or $4.95 more for the 2009 (whats up with that shit?...call them and make them an offer) at Milosport DAKINE SNOWBOARD GLOVES
