Cold weather/dry gloves?

I am not a hard core rider into temps below 50 degrees so I am looking for a waterproof glove that will also keep me warm in those temps.

I am thinking of the Held Warm and Dry. I have a pair of Agadir summer gloves by Held that I like. I know they make pricey gloves but you get what you pay for.
How about the Revit brand, Orion?

Any glove I've ever tried, wet weather, inevitably becomes water logged. Good luck. I like my Scorpion XDR cold weather gloves but once the rain keeps going they become sponges. Great for the cold but not extended wet.

I am basically a fair weather rider but with my Speedy I have been riding it more than any other bike I have owned.
I got caught about 60 miles away at a nice location I like to go to.. great roads and the place is a big time biker and car hangout.. On the way home I got caught in some serious rain and my hands froze with my ventalated summer gloves.
So its not that I am going to do much touring but its nice to carry a warmer pair of gloves when the sun goes down and a rain shower comes by..
Goretex has to help somewhat.

I've got some Triumph Explorer gloves I've had for a few years.



But I don't think they make them anymore. I could only find a place online in England that has them for sale. These are the best waterproof and cold weather riding gloves I've ever owned.

Been liking BMG Thermosports. Warmer than other cold weather gloves I've tried this side of electric gloves, but below 40 they could still benefit from liners after an hour or so. They claim to be 100% waterproof, but so far have never put them to the test. $79 is hard to beat. In my experience, you want these gloves to run a little larger than summer gloves, although you end up losing some sensitivity to the controls. I have short fingers, so have a hard time thumbing the shift switch sometimes.

However, I also use heated grips and hand guards in the winter. So that helps keeps my hands from freezing.

Held Warm N Dry are great gloves for the cold, but your hands will profusely sweat at temps around fifty degrees. I would recommend a pair of Held Steve gloves with a silk liner underneath. The silk glove is very thin, but very warm and easily taken on and off as needed. Held are the only gloves I use!

I liked the look of the Steve gloves but there is no Goretex or lining, so to me they not cover all the bases.

Warm and Dry above 50 degrees will make you sweat?
Not sure on that one, however I dont think I will be doing much riding below 50 degrees.

I originally missed the waterproof aspect needed, yes the Steve glove is unlined so no moisture protection. The warm n dry glove is very bulky and will be too much in fifty degrees. This comes from someone with poor circulation and frequent cold digits. I still recommend the silk undergloves--they are thin enough to slip under any glove and are quite warm...
