Winter Bike Gloves & Mittens I've tried

rollover the gloves for additional comments about each pair.


This is a selection of gloves and mittens I've tried to keep my hands warm while bicycling in the winter.


On their own, none of them worked particularly well for riding fast in freezing temperatures.


The best solution I've found is layered: Use a wool mitten for core insulation, and then add a loose fitting overmitt for an extra layer of trapped air, plus the key feature of blocking the wind.


The difference on cold days is between enduring the experience and enjoying it.
