Fall/winter gloves

Does anyone have gloves they recommend for temps under 55*? I have a summer pair now so they wind they allow in is crazy for this time of year. I doubt I'll buy anything now since I plan on storing my bike in the next couple weeks, but I still would like to be ready for the spring since midwest weather is so unpredictable. Need something waterproof as well

I don't ride in winter, but am interested to find reasonably priced winter gloves that keep fingertips from freezing as I'm out several times a day for extended periods playing with my dog. Anyone here who does ride in winter weather that has found inexpensive gloves that solve the frozen fingertips problem?

From my experience, fingertips are going to get cold. I run heated glove liners for any major trips in the winter. They work but are a pain if you don't have a vest to hook them into. I run my wires inside my winter jacket and it's a bit of a mess, but if doing a 2-3 hr ride the trouble is worth it. I will prolly get a jacket liner this year so the gloves will plug into those with a lot less hassle.

I do have a pair of Klim Inversion wind cutter gloves (no protection) and they are good down to 45ish. Amazing as they are so thin. Klim has winter, waterproof, gloves with protection that I'm sure would be great but $$$.

Wireless battery powered gloves are the go now, gets round that problem.

Most of the reviews I have read on the batt gloves are not good. If I'm bothering wearing heated gloves it is because I'm heading out camping in the mountains or similar. About a 3 hr trip. I'm not convinced they would hold a charge that long.

Personally I dont ride if it drops below 55 F. I ride to have fun and its no fun when its blistering cold like that, feels like torture.

Here in Miami it lasts for 2 weeks out of the year when it gets that cold.

When it comes to heat I can tolerate any temperature with full ATGATT however, even 110 F

But cold is a no-no

If it is cold but rideable I have lobster gloves, These are two finger gloves so fingers are together for extra warmth, I also have silk gloves inside which make a big difference. (These are from my RAF helicopter days). Heated grips make the whole ride much more comfortable. If it gets too cold for this lot I don't ride.

Don't worry about old age - it doesn't last that long.

I have gear to ride pretty darn cold but if it's below 40 that's where I draw the line. There's a guy on the CB1100 forum who (joy)rides all year. He lives in OH. He posted a pic last year in front of a bank temp sign that read 23 I think. Nope.

I picked up Fly Aurora gloves (https://www.revzilla.com/snow/fly-aurora-gloves) to try to extend the season a bit, either earlier this spring or last fall, and they are decently insulated but the fingers still got cold at higher speeds in colder temps. I believe they might be improved somewhat with an additional layer underneath (per Gromit's suggestion. Silk you say?). They are not too too bulky but do feel more like winter gloves, less like motorcycle gloves.

Silk is a great insulator. Make sure they are genuine silk, not an artificial fabric. Silk still works when it is wet.
