    Default mid season gloves

    I believe that's what the term is.

    Got some cash for crimbo so thinking of getting some new gloves. I have some summer gloves which I'm very happy with (Furygan James) but in Spring/Autumn when it's say 4/5C in the mornings they are a bit too cold for my liking. They are also not waterproof which isn't a big problem as I don't ride in the rain if I can help it but currently on say a weekend away I take my old summer gloves on the basis they can get soaked and I'll have my good ones for dry, but that's a bit bobbins.

    So I want waterproof gloves which will deal with some colder weather but as I don't ride in winter I don't need full on winter gloves, plus I don't like the lack of feel with full on winter gloves. Since switching to the Furygan's I do find I prefer shorter cuff cloves as well, although appreciate to short will mean water will go down the wrist.

    Want to spend ideally 50/60 maybe a bit more for the right glove. Any recommendations?

    Oh and yes I'd prefer heated grips but after reading about Weeksy having to dremel his throttle tube on the 690 I'm not sure I fancy that.

    I'd recommend not riding when it's cold.

    I got some gloves that are two in one! You can put your hands either side of an inner cover thing so your hands are either insulated or not. Good idea really. Cant remember what make they are though, possibly Held?

    How about Spidi Bora gloves? They're (almost) within your price range, waterproof and have a short cuff. The Spidi Bora is Level 1 CE-certified too, and it's not a full-on winter glove.

    I've not noticed any difference between Spidi's H2Out waterproofing and Gore-Tex in my clobber. Both are good, but I'd still apply Nikwax Glove Proof to any pair of gloves to stop the outer from wetting out.

    Take a look at Racer gloves. The only thing they make is gloves, I highly recommend them.

    Bit spendy I think although I've heard they are the nuts as they heat all of your hand not just the palms

    I prefer heated grips and summer gloves all year round in all honesty as i get the feel fo a thinner glove but warmth as well. When they get soaked at least its warm

    Summer gloves in winter? I assume you're using bar muffs as well. Unless you're has hard as nails, don't feel the cold or enjoy frostbite.

    No bar muffs fitted this year. When i did have them fitted i never used the heated grips as my hands were warm enough.

    I currently use 2 pairs of Alpinestars SP8, a black pair i have had for a couple of years and a new red and white pair i bought off the local facebook page for 20 quid that had never been used .... they are not vented like a couple of other pairs i have but also not lined or thermal and the only bit that sometimes gets a bit cold is the fingertips or under the thumb

    I@ve got a pair of Furygan Opale Gloves which I wear all seasons bar summer. My Triumph has heated grips and hand guards so I don't need a full winter glove. However, I've been using them since beginning of December on my Monster which doesn't have heated grips or guards and they are fine. They are light weight and have an easy feel. Combination of goat skin and polyester with armour on knuckles and fingers.
    If I lost them I'd go and buy same again so recommended
