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 winter motorcycle 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.
