Here's my current selection:

Cold weather: Tourmaster Winter Elite II (waterproof), second pair.

Cool weather: Cortech Scarab 2.0 Winter (waterproof)

In between weather: Harley-Davidson brand waterproof bought on sale when visiting H-D with son, and really comfortable and really waterproof

Summer weather: Cortech Injector


YMMV

I've got Aerostich Elkskin gauntlet gloves for warm weather and Warm and Safe heated gloves for cold.

Heated grips too!

I went through many pairs of warm weather gloves the type with mixed leather and fabric construction. Typically a seam would rip or the fabric would wear through from contact with a lever.

The Aerostich gloves don't wear out. Usually I replace them every 2-3 years because the leather has gotten dried to the point that even conditioning them doesn't get them soft as new, still serviceable though. I get the tan ones and they are fine when it's hot.

I don't plug in the heated gloves until temps are into the mid 40s. They are warm enough without power to transition from the Aerostich.

I'm down to three pairs now:

Cold: Lee Parks DeerSports PCi. With muffs and heated grips, I've had no issues down to the 20s.

Warm: I alternate between Aerostich Elkskin competition ropers and Lee Parks DeerTours.

When my warm weather gloves wear out, I'll probably stick with just the Aerostich as a replacement. The DeerTours are beautiful and comfortable, but they're also 40% more expensive than the Aerostich ropers. (The Aerostich gloves are also very comfortable.)

When my cold weather gloves wear out, I'd be 50/50 between either replacing them with another set of DeerSports and trying the Aerostich insulated gauntlets.

Another fan of the Aerostitch Elkskin Roper for winter, or lined buckskin, unlined buckskin for summer.
I'm fortunate to live in a relatively mild climate, I don't need anything warmer.
(heated grips help)

I've got a pair of the Aerostich insulated gauntlets. They aren't very warm. I had a pair of PCI gloves, can't remember the manufacturer but they were way warmer. They wore out pretty quick though so I bought the Aerostich, they weren't as warm and they were more expensive too.

That's when I bought my first pair of heated gloves ( followed shortly after by an electric jacket liner). Heated gear is a revelation one of those things like "sheesh why didn't I do this long ago?". Makes riding in the cold so much nicer.

I'm looking for a warm weather glove recommendation. Any good value gloves out there that really hit it out of the park? Is there a hive mind consensus on this? Thanks.

I like the Held Steves gloves. Got em at motorcyclegear.com. For cold weather I had Warm and Safe heated gloves but I don't seem to use them anymore.

Only have 1 pair of gloves, Klim Dakar Pro, wear them all year round.
Use Rain Off over gloves if it looks like there will be a lot of rain otherwise don't bother.
Use Venture Heat glove liners for cold weather.

I wear aerostich deerskin. 3 pairs, non gauntlet for hot, gauntlet for cool, I have insulated gauntlet for cold though I haven't used/tried those yet. Also I keep heated warm/safe for those rare occasions I get caught out when the sun goes down on a winters night. In the desert the wide temperature from day to night can easily be 50 F. A nice winter 70 F day in Death Valley can get to 20 F overnight.

no rain stuff as we don't get much of that. do enjoy watching it when/if it happens.

14 tooth for me
