Cold Weather Gloves

I love the heated grips on my K12S - yes it gets cold even down here in northeast FL. I have a nice pair of mesh gloves for riding in the summer and a heavy set of leather gauntlet-style gloves for winter. These heavy gloves are lined and bulky and I dislike using them because I don't feel as though I am "in touch" with the throttle when I wear them. The lining seems to move between my palm and the leather.

With the heated grips, I really don't need (or want) that lining between my hands and the grips. Does anyone make a winter glove for heated grips that has no interior lining on the palms but something on the back of the hand for warmth against the wind?

If the answer to that is no, what gloves do you wear in cold weather and why do you like them?

Unfortunatly Hot Grips no longer carries the lightweight insulated gloves.
Try www.thunder-wear.com click on store, then click on motorsport gloves. You might something thats light weight.

Another alternative I would recommend is the First Gear Voyager glove. Comfortable, waterproof, nice grip and lever feel for a winter glove, not drafty at the wrist, and good heat transfer to the palms.

Bruce,
Thanks for the link, which of these gloves would you recommend? I saw several cool weather gloves, touring and racing types too.

Jerry,
Thanks for the info on the Voyager glove. I take it from your description that you don't feel any "movement" between the liner/leather.?

I see by Mike's post that Hot Grips still has the insulated gloves( I was wrong). I have them and they are very good. They are made in Pakistan and are insulated on the back and plain soft leather on the palm. The combo makes for a warm glove with good "feel" on the bars( heated grips only). They are very good for a mild winter climate.
I have a pair of Tour Master insulated leather gloves and find them too bulky for anything but the freeway useage.
I was also going to buy a pair of the Thunderwear insulated fabric gloves. Hell, for $20.00 you gotta try them.

ps The Hot Grip gloves run a little small in size.

No I do not, the liner in the palm area does not feel independent of the outer leather.
