    Default I need REALLY warm gloves, and fast

    I'm going on a trip next Tuesday, and I need some really warm gloves. And when I say warm, I mean gloves that can keep my hands warm in 32 degrees F, or 0 degrees C, with 70 mph winds.

    So really, really warm. And they have to be available in Western Washington ( can order things, but not from out of country).

    Ideally, they wouldn't cost over $50, but I'm definitely willing to pay for gloves that meet my requirements.

    Thanks a lot,

    I think I saw on the discovery channel that they where two or three layers of gloves when they are out in the cold like that.

    I'd suggest visiting a Northface Store if you have one near you. Trendy and Overpriced? Sure, but the gloves will most likely get the job done.

    Pockets are not an option; the short story is that I'm going to be riding a motorcycle.

    And there's an REI near me.

    A large pair of rubber gloves over a slightly smaller pair of fluffy gloves?

    I'd go Check Out REI or Sportsman's Warehouse (thats assuming you're close to Spokane).

    I bought a pair of Ironclad Tundra Gloves, excellent for Outdoors work in the Winter. My problem with Ski Gloves is that they get moisture in them too easily, and aren't designed for when you have to be down on your hands and knees for extended periods of time. They run about 45.00$, but you might have to take em' off for a bit in 32 Degree Weather, since they're designed for temperatures as cold as -90F.

    Just don't go. I'm from South Texas, 50F is too cold for me, I would die in 32 I'm sure.

    You may be stronger than me, and if so, hit up most stores with outdoor equipment like for hiking and rock climbing. They usually have good quality stuff.

    Motorcycle gloves, made of leather, my dad gave me his when I went skiing, yes, at less than 0°C, touching the snow etc. and they worked quite fine. Might make a difference when you're holding your hands still but they weren't the warmest motorcycle gloves available either I think.

    You're too sensitive. I'm not even wearing gloves yet, and I'm in Canada.

    Isn't it snowing in Saskatchewan right now?

    Ski gloves will keep you warm no matter what, but they're a bit bulky and hard to grip with. I'd say you wear some fluffy ones and leather riding gloves above those. And seal up those sleaves.

    Cool store, bro! I want some ham.
    No ham, pepsi.
    They make deli slices of frozen pepsi now? Awesome!
    You also need to purchase a small freezer for storage of your pepsi.
    It runs on batteries. You'll need a few.
    Uhh, I guess I won't have pepsi then. Do you have change for a twenty?

    go to a snowboard shop and get some board gloves. GORETEX, with undergloves. Things will probably be too warm

    Oh, excuse me, are you going to be on a bike going 70 mph over a mountain pass?

    Right now I'm thinking of getting these. I already have thin liners and chemical hand warmers.

    My friend, who went to Bavaria to pick up his Beemer Bike, in the winter two years ago, recommends these^^^.

    Should be able to order & receive them pretty quickly. Ninety bucks though. :(

    I rode my Kawasaki 1000LTD through the '85-86 winter when stationed at Fort Lewis, back when Christ was a Corporal. Drove daily from Roy to the back gate to the MP Station (about 15 miles total) and back daily. In those primitive days I wore army gloves with plastic bags over them to deflect wind. In mid-January, I admit it always took 15-20 minutes to warm up after those o-dark-thirty rides. Fingertips and knees got awful cold.

    Fortunately nowadays they have better materials, and actually think about, if not actually cater to winter riders. Ha! I say. "Victory!", to my 80's naysayers/co-workers, who thought (coorectly) I wuz nutz.

    Good luck. Where ya goin, with whom, for what, and stuff?

    I'm going across state, to sort out a couple things back near my old University. It isn't a necessary trip, but it's close. Going by myself on my bike. I did the same thing last year, and I want to avoid the cold if at all possible.

    I'm set up to keep my legs warm (sweat pants under jeans under ski pants under a rain proof shell, with hand warmers, and I might use my custom rigged rubber fairings that go over my leg and deflect the wind), so right now the cold points are my ankles/the spot between my pants and shoes and my hands. I'm looking at 6-7 hours, unfortunately, assuming no snow in the pass on I-90.

    Thanks for the link, Kukri, I'll take a look at those.

    Cool. Whatcha' riding? As you know, snow ain't a huge problem... it's the ice underneath: suddenly exposed by cars and trucks with chains on; or worse: so-called 'black-ice', the stuff that freezes in shadowy corners and disguises itself as dry asphalt.

    Saint Christopher be with ya', pal.

    Ducati Monster, '03.

    Yeah, I spent last year on the east side, aka the cold side of Washington. Had to go through almost a mile of deep, packed snow on the road once in December. This time of year black ice isn't a huge danger, and we're I'm heading the temps look to be highs of 50, lows in the mid 30s while I'm there. The pass, Snoqualmie pass on the I-90, is in danger of getting snow, but mostly of the slushy kind this time of year.

    I'm looking to head out shortly after first light, to make sure I arrive before dark. I didn't last year, and that just made the traveling more difficult and colder.

    Ahh.. the V2 4-stroke. Italy's answer to Harley, with their thumper history. Nice ride my man. Heck, you could climb 50-degree hills with that machine. On the road, though (as you know): medium juice does the trick. May the Sun God bless Snoqualmie with sunshine, dry roads, and easy passage for our friend. Both ways.

    Warm clothing is never the answer to cold weather. Layers of warm clothing is the answer.

    As for your situation, I would recommend wind and waterproof gloves with a little stuffing, with a pair of very thin wool(or similar) gloves underneath.
