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:

You're noot going to find quality gloves for much less than $100. Check out the Alpinestars SP1

Ignore Jeff's post.

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.
