I have some gloves for really cold weather. I need a Fall and late Spring set. My bike gloves are getting too cold. I wear them for uv and foil wing protection. I am XL or XXL

Need warm'ish, and durable enough to prevent stitches when the foil hits the hands. Mtb gloves are great, until the air temp drops below 60 deg.

Thanks,
Eric

I'm happy with my Rip Curl e-bomb 2mm gloves. After that I head south. They don't restrict hand/finger mobility. Reasonably warm

Glacier Gloves from 2nd Wind! I wear them right through the Winter and my hands stay warm. I am a cold water phobic person too so that's a huge endorsement.

Just tried out the 3/2mm Rip Curl gloves at Stevenson.

Amazing!

Love them.

Dragging up am old thread.... How is the grip on these? I am looking for some gloves that are tacky for winging. I just bought some Ion 3/2 Claws and they are warm, but man the grip sucks with webbing loops on my wings. My hands were sliding all around until I put a death grip on the handles, which of course led to arm pump.

Tried hand warmers in my gloves today. OMG!!!!! What a game changer!! For the first time ever in cold weather I had great hand flexibility combined with toasty warm hands!!!

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004CV2YXE/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I used the orange round ones. Just before I went out I popped the cap and stuffed them in my Mystic 3mm gloves on top of my hands. Seriously, OMG!!!! My hands were toasty warm for about 45 minutes, and then started cooling off. By one hour it was time to come in for cool hands. My hands have ALWAYS been what drove me in early. But before, my winter sessions lasted 30 minutes with pain. Today, one hour and my hands were just starting to get cool. Click the clicker, stuff the warmers on top of your hand as close to your fingers as you can get them.

These will ALWAYS be in my cold weather kit until something better comes along.
