    Recommended gloves for winter driving?

    Does anyone have any gloves they could recommend for winter driving? I was looking for something that keeps your hands from freezing while still providing decent grip and feel of the steering wheel. What brand and model do some of you guys use? Any internet links to gloves you recommend would be appreciated as well!

    Thanks!

    I went to a motorcycle store and tried on a bunch as fit is very important. We have an independent that just carry's a lot of different gloves

    I've found that motorcycle or hunting gloves incorporating Neoprene are as warm as a I need and very comfortable. There are a lot of options.

    I'd agree on a motorcycle glove. They have a pair with wiper blades fit to the thumb so you can clean off water off your visor when driving. Very handy. Best to go to a cycle store and try some one. They make a lot of versions that are armored in case of crashes. these are not so great for the Atom

    Agreed. The armored ones are too bulky. I really love the way the gloves with the neoprene exterior grip the steering wheel on an Atom.

    snow mobile gloves are what I use. They have a gauntlet on them so you can seal them up better to keep the wind out.

    A patient got me "Handcuff" sweatshirt for Christmas. Though kind of redneck, I think its pretty cool having partial gloves built into the sleeves. would be a good cool weather driving gear
