Don't let cold weather keep you from riding your classic motorcycle. In this installment of Gear Driven motorcycle gear reviews, the editors tested eight pairs of cold weather motorcycle riding gloves:
1. Alpinestars Storm Rider Gore-Tex gloves feature leather construction, an insulated liner, excellent knuckle armor, and padded inserts along the palm, fingers, top of the hand and wrist for added impact protection. This is serious sport-touring gear, and while the knuckle protectors look a little goofy, they also provide peace of mind. For being a sportier cut they’re quite warm, and one of several great choices here if you’re combining an insulated glove with heated grips. Price: $179.95.
2. Cortech Scarab Winter gloves feature cowhide leather construction, goatskin palms, a waterproof and breathable HiPora fabric barrier, Thinsulate insulation, titanium/carbon knuckle, finger and wrist protection panels, a gauntlet cuff with a leather closure flap, and a soft fleece interior lining. We found these gloves to have a nice, secure, sporty fit. Though these aren’t the warmest gloves here, their relative lack of bulk provides more dexterity than some of the thicker, warmer gloves we’ve tried, and we like their armor. Price: $84.99.
3. Aerostich Luxury Cowhide Winter gloves are top-quality, made in Japan with a beautifully understated, vintage style that we just love. Soft and extremely comfortable, they’re not bulky, but they also don’t have a sport glove cut like the above-mentioned Alpinestars and Cortech gloves. The shell is constructed of 1.2mm waterproofed cowhide leather, with a waterproof and breathable layer below, and the wrist and cuff are adjustable with hook-and-loop closures. They also feature reinforced palms and a neat diamond-pattern quilting across the top of the hands. We’ve found them to be quite warm, and they’re probably the most comfortable glove here on first wear, though they do lack the armor of some of the sportier gloves. Price: $149.
