Warm gloves

As title states, I'm looking to buy a decent warmer gloves for this fall. If they're waterproof that's even better. Unfortunately my budget is pretty limited, ready to spend around $70 to $120. Any suggestion guys? Keep in mind I live in Canada

I have used Sidici Hotwired gloves. Pretty bulky and stiff but built in controller is nice. I think I only needed SAE plug and extension. Y-cable included as I recall. I ride in winter in Michigan and only 1 time had to go to medium. Low is warm enough.

TPG Axiom gloves

Best gloves I have ever had, have also been waterproof for hours on end riding in the rain. They are not bulky at all, and offer very good colder weather protection......and D3 armor.

For winter riding I just use ski gloves. They seem to work fine. I have never had actual heated gloves, and I would guess if I wrecked at speed, the ski gloves might not give good protection against the tarmac. However, so far I have not flozen.

GP Bikes in Whitby tends to have a pretty good selection of gloves.

I know it is pricey and may break your budget but if you are going to do a lot of colder weather riding you really can't go wrong with heated gear. Heated gloves and a heated jacket (with a soft shell over it and your riding jacket over that) make riding down to about -5 or -10°C comfy without bulk . (Below that I add another layer.)

If you are going to get heated gear don't buy anything that you currently can get in the stores in Canada. Go online and get "Warm n Safe" gear. They are a great company that make great gear and back it up.

Had lots of brands over the years and most good.One local seller had his in the Suzuki dealer with warranty not to leak.I got the light unlined long cuff and loved them but after a eight day trip of all most all rain started to leak.They gave me a new pair and he wanted to know how many miles.When told 1500 he told them he would still honer it but most did not ride that much in six months!After lots of miles and not a lot of rain one started a small leak.Gave me another pair. They just feel so good do not really care about water proof.
For below 35 have three pair of winter gloves and one pair of mittens.Only used my elc.one time last winter.If below a 30 mile ride don't fool with them.No coming out of mid Tenn. two years ago in Feb. at 17 degrees had gloves and vest both on high and felt so good.In Kentucky we don't have many 0 or below days.If leather just rub vaseline all over and into the out side and will really help in keeping wet out.
