Warm weather gloves?

I'm shopping around for warm weather gloves that will:

1. Give me some protection but not get my hands to hot.
2. Allow me some feel so I can operate stuff like the GPS etc.

All opinions appreciated.

I use Tourmaster Airflow gloves when it's warm out.

Best gloves I ever owned were golf gloves.

Went to the local golf course, entered the pro shop and asked for a left and right one.

Guy looked at me like I had 6 eyes and tentacles.


They're light and really comfortable. Not so good if you're sliding on asphalt on your hands, but ya' can't have everything, eh?

I've always used motocross gloves for warm weather.

I have been using Olympia Ventor gloves for hmmmm close to 3 years now... and they still look awesome:

Also consider the Digital Protector version (whith knuckle stuff) but otherwise - same difference. They flow all kinds of air.

Alpinestars GP plus are fairly well perforated and offer decent protection. Try before you buy, though, 'cause the sizing is a bit odd.

I use those orange-yellow work gloves. They come in all kinds of thicknessess and leathers. I've got elk leather.
I had some goat skin leather gloves. They are usually found in white. They were the best ever, but Sportsmans Warehouse closed where I got them from.

I found a pair of good mesh mountain biking gloves when it gets really warm. The protection is minimal, but at least there's extra padding around the knuckles and palm. The airflow through the mesh is quite refreshing, enough so that I'm not tempted to remove the handguards in the summertime.

Heretic Alert:

There's a Harley imprint set of gloves I really like. Lightly perforated leather, wonderful fit. Try them at Harley outlets.
