Default Best Winter Gloves?

What are the best winter gloves? It is getting cold up here. I do fine in it except for my hands that always freeze and make me have to quit early. I would prefer the warmest gloves, but also would like them to have some dexterity and not be 5" thick.

I'm interested in the same thing! Getting some new moto gear for Christmas.. and I definitely don't want to stop riding during cold weather. My hands just get absolutely frozen in 50 degree weather though, and my neck/chin/cheeks/face.... I just toughed it out last year, but I want better gear for this season!

I've seen those little face and neck deals and there like 11 bucks at cyclegear.

I've been using some skiing gloves that I got form Eastern Mountain Sports. I can look at them later for the model information, but they work pretty good and are nice and water proof. They even have a squeegie, except its on the throttle hand so they clearly weren't intended for motorcycles.

I've really been considering picking some of those up.. Sort of like ninja masks, if we're talking about the same thing, right? Like a thermal face protector? [8D]

when your cheeks are so cold they're numb, you're asking to catch a cold.. I don't like being sick. It's important to me to keep my chest, and my face/head warm.

I can tolerate basically everything else, but need some well rounded gear anyway. I have warm weather gear and moderately cool weather gear, but need something for coldddddddd (brrrrrr!) weather.

I've been thinking about the same thing. It's not quite cold here yet, but it's gonna be pretty soon I'm afraid. The leaves are just starting to change at certain places in TN.

My biggest concerns are my hands, neck/face, and knees. The knees aren't usually brought up, but there is no meat to insulate them and they can really start to get cold if you don't have the right kind of pants on. I have some pants with knee pads that kept me pretty warm last weekend. Hopefully they will work this winter, maybe have to combine with long johns.

I'm going to bike up one of those ninja masks too. Besides keeping you warm, you look like a badass.

As far as gloves, I need something warm but not cumbersome. Last winter I would just double up with a pair of thin leather gloves under my vented Alpine star gloves. Still pretty good dexterity and warmer than the one pair by themselves. Probably not as good as a pair of real MC cold weather gloves, though. Any suggestions other than ski gloves (which I think is really bad idea since they won't hold up under a crash).

Face and Neck thing being a Balaclava. Drivers wear them in just about every racing motorsport (except I'm not sure they make the overweight rednecks wear them in Nascar...)

They should stock balaclava's in any decent dealership, and Cycle Gear has them. (except for the one by me, because they suck ass)

As for winter gloves...I highly recommend Dainese Jerico gloves. They have the dexterity of your average summer glove, because they're Dainese. Unfortunately, they also have the price of your average left nut. Because they're Dainese. =)
