    Best full fingered glove for cool (but not freezing) temps

    I'm in the market for a full fingered glove for temps on cool but not freezing days.

    Your recco's appreciated.


    If this thread has already been done this Fall, please point me.

    Before cxwrench does it in a more gruff way, I'd point out there is an apparel/clothing sub-forum that actually gets traffic this post should go in (and suggest mods move the thread):

    That said, have been happy with Giro Ambient gloves here.

    Clothing - 3 or 4 replies per week does not a Forum make.

    Lounge would be a better move for information.

    Thanks for Giro input. Wondering about gel as that's not my favorite glove padding.

    I don't think they feel over-padded with the gel, don't feel like the palms are too thick or anything. BTW I have the original Ambients... looks like newer version (2.0) exists now.

    Specialized has a wide selection of full-fingered gloves, from liners to lobsterclaws. I've had pretty good experiences with them.

    For cool (but not freezing) days, I like to go with a full finger polypro liner glove under my regular short finger gloves. On colder days, I use the liners under uninsulated windstopper full finger gloves. I typically ride from late morning to early afternoon, so it's nice to be able to shed the liner as the day warms up and as the liner gets wet with sweat.
    Insert something clever here:

    Same here. I have a pair of XXXL fingerless gloves (I usually wear XXL) I wear over silver thread laced Ag​loves brand glove liners that allow me to use my phone while gloved.

    Thanks.
    I purchased some Manzella gloves on closeout at the REI Garage online.

    FYI to anyone reading this downstream. Costco sells a HEAD running glove for around $12, they are tremendous.
    I have ridden them from 50 degrees all the way down to 35 or so with superb results. Far better than my Castelli or Craft gloves of like weight and at a 1/4 the price how can you go wrong.

    Even if not for cycling specifically, +1 on the Head gloves from Costco.

    Highly recommend Giro's DnD full fingered gloves... you can get them from Giro, direct with free shipping at any dollar amount. Retail is only $25.
