so you are saying that the Steve glove will keep your hand warm down to what temps with no heated grips? The liners will add a bit more warmth which is a must.

I basically want a warmer pair of gloves for the fall, down to say 50 Degrees and also if I stay out when the sun goes down I can put on instead of my Air gloves. I have been caught in a couple of showers and I also would like my backup gloves to be waterproof.
So the Steve glove will not cover all those bases.
Maybe the Held Rain storm glove would be better?

I have a pair of ventalated gloves, that like yours, are good to 50 degrees, maybe a little less. I recently purchased a pair of Schammpa liners that fit perferctly under my summer gloves. And they are small enough to be easily folded and stuffed in the pocket of my leather jacket, should the temperature change on a late afternoon ride. I would think you would be very lucky to find a pair of waterproof gloves that don't make you hands sweat profusely in warmer weather!

If a certain amount of waterproofness is necessary for you, go with the Warm n Dry glove--you can always stop to pull them off and cool down if you become too hot. I own a pair of Warm n Dry, but do not use them any longer as I like Gerbings Heated T5 gloves--the extra option of even electric heat is great, especially in the finger tips.

Held Warm gloves have a thin palm area as they are designed to be used with heated grips. The Gerbings are bulkier (with a much longer gauntlet cuff), but, again, heat in the fingertips is key for me!

To answer your question about temps around fifty; I use Steve gloves & liner if the trip is short and in sun. If a longer ride, or the chance of being caught after sundown, the Gerbings every time. Of all three gloves I mention in my posts, the Gerbings were the one that offered more cold temperature riding options than any other.

I have recently put on a pair of alpine star drystar arctics. Freaking awesome. Been riding in Vancouver in some damn cold and my hands are warm for my entire 1hr ride home in 2 degree Celsius weather. Amazing in the rain as well for that time period.
My favorite thing is that they have great and real protection, hard knuckles and scaphoid padding but without a lot of bulk compared to every other glove I tried on. It seems most of the time there is a toss up between protection and thick or thin but little protection.
