We seem to be heading into winter with our chin on the tank – excluding heated options for those of you not fancying being wired up. In no particular order, here’s our round up of the best cold weather riding gloves…your finger tips will thank us later!

1) Richa Mountain Gore-Tex Mixed Gloves:

The Mountain Gore-Tex from Richa are a great opener for us, consisting of a mixed leather and textile construction, D30 knuckle protection along with a Primaloft thermal liner to keep the heat in on those frosty mornings. These gloves have a great wrist seal which can be attached to your jacket. The “visor wipe” feature on the index finger is a welcome addition on rainy rides.

Sizes 6 – 3XL

Dainese Tempest Warm Motorcycle Gloves
2) Dainese Tempest D-Dry Long Gloves

Tempest D-Dry from Dainese is up there with the best of the cold weather riding gloves. Incredibly comfortable, warm and waterproof. The gloves boast a visor wipe feature on the thumb and the material on the index finger can be used on touchscreen devices. Constructed from elasticated fabric and “digital suede”, Comfortech knuckle protection, abrasion resistant reinforced suede palm and lined with thermal quilted padding. 

Sizes XS – 2XL

3) Rukka R-Star Gore-Tex Gloves

Rukka have pulled out all the stops on their R-Star Gore-Tex gloves. Fully waterproof, windproof and breathable, crafted from full grain leather. The gloves feature carbon knuckle protection and are fleece lined with a clever “two chamber” system allowing you to choose if the insulation is doubled up on top of your hands (if using heated grips) or spread evenly across the back of your hand and palm. The gloves also have the visor wipe feature we have come to expect on this type of glove, however we found it not quite as effective as some other brands.

Sizes XS – 2XL

Apart from having a cool name, these gloves from Spada are an excellent choice for those looking for a quality pair of cold weather riding gloves at a competitive price. The 100% waterproof and breathable membrane keeps any moisture where it’s supposed to be whilst the Thinsulate thermal lining keeps the heat in. The gloves also feature carbon knuckle sections, leather reinforcements and a visor wipe on the left thumb.

Internally lined with polyester and a thermal quilted padding with a waterproof and breathable membrane, the Rallye from RST are a very warm motorcycle glove at a budget price. Constructed from goatskin and mixed micro-fibre with carbon knuckle protection.
