Want some gloves!!

I know there are some old post here but there are so many new gloves out..
Looking to pick up a new pair but I dont know where to begin there are so many.

-I ride all street not track
-charleston weather so pretty much never gets below 40's
-wanting leather they seem to hold up.
-dont really care about brand.
-like to spend under 100$

Anyone know of any deals or awesome gloves??

The old people seem to be worse than the teens texting, I say once your 60: driving test every year.

My three glove choices, for different weather:

for 55 to 75 degrees or if it is warmer and raining, a waterproof motorcycle glove:

Spidi Sport Zodiac H2OUT Textile Gloves Black L Large | eBay


for 40 to 54 degrees, an insulated ski glove:

Spyder Men's Facer Windstop Ski Gloves | eBay



for 76 to 95 degrees, I have less safety but more airflow and more grip with these hardware store gloves, the ones labelled Pro Grip with a bright blue color:

Channellock Products - Channellock® Accessories

-------------------------------



A cut and puncture resistant glove from the oil and gas industry that I would like to try for motorcycle use:

Sport Rider magazine rated these gloves high for summer use:

AGV Sport Laguna Gloves Review - webBikeWorld

Ignore anyone who writes who to ignore.

form an opinion that isn't based in the retarded.

Of course I'm generalizing from a single example here, but everyone does that. At least I do.

This tells me that I should ignore you because you told me to ignore people who tell people to ignore people and if I ignore people who tell people to ignore people then that means that I should ignore you because you told people to ignore people who tell people to ignore people so you are now one of those people who tell people to ignore people and should therefore be ignored. If I tell people to ignore this post should I be ignored?

I've had these for 5-6 years now and they are still holding up wonderfully. Very soft. Good stitching. Fit my hands well. They've been through all sorts of weather and still look and feel great.
They are definitely a thick quality leather, so a little breaking in is required.

Teknic Lightnings. They were my first pair of gloves, and I really enjoyed them. They have the Knox SPS (plastic pucks for the palms of your hand, so you slide if you go down) which I really appreciated, and they really aren't noticeable when you're riding so don't worry about them getting in the way. Not the most protective out there, but for the price, they're pretty damn good I think. (Unfortunately, if you want better protection, it costs more). Get some glove liners to let you ride into lower temperatures to a point.
