Cold weather gloves

What are the best cold weather riding gloves?

While we are at it; how do you keep your feet dry?

I just got a new set of the Fox Polar Paws and I love them. In terms of my feet I always wear 2 pairs of normal socks and ski socks on top and have never had an issue.

Todays Temp here was 14*F. The best thing to keep those fingers warm (though not to everyone's liking) is a set of ATV handlebar mits.

We used to wear silk socks, but then then came out with polypropylene. These days all that under-armor body-dri moisture-wicking stuff is pretty much the same stuff.

Polypropylene socks, with cotton tube-socks over that and then a wool sock. All the moisture wicks out of the inner sock keeping your feet very dry. And very warm.

I remember skiing in Vermont in -25F weather and the only thing warm was my feet.

For MX or trail? For trail I assume you'd want something much warmer as you don't take breaks to warm up like when MXing. I have some Shift Chill gloves, and they are slightly warmer than regular MX gloves. A rubber glove under a regular MX is what I've been using the past few weeks. I have a hard time getting used to hitting jumps with the bulkier Shift gloves on. This has been working in the 35 or so temps of the past two weekends.

For trail riding.

KLIM Inversion gloves :thumbsup:

Nitrile gloves under your existing gloves if you're on a budget

Thor has some good cold weather gloves. I use a pair of ski gloves for cold riding. Also consider grip heaters, they only draw like 35 watts. Eephant Ear covers keep the wind off your hands.

I use a pair of beater ski gloves....Works for me.

cross-country ski gloves for your hands.

Sealskin waterproof socks for your feet.

your welcome.

I have the polar paws as well and they're great to about -2C, any colder and you'll want something warmer...

Plus 1 on the crorr country ski gloves with a thin liner under them.

Thanks for the replies!

ARC Back Country - pretty cheap, little thicker compared to normal MX gloves but they work well. Have worn them with temps around 40 and my hands felt fine, as others have stated layer in a set of rubber gloves to cut down on the wind.

I'm an MSR Cold Pro guy. They are a little thick when new. But they wear in to provide a great balance between warmth and feel.
