Gauntlet Style Gloves

so I'm in the market for a pair of decent gloves. Right now I've got some little cheap Joe Rocket Atomics that did the trick in the summer, but it's just too damn cold for that crap now. Can anyone recommend a nice (and warm) pair of gauntlet style gloves for me? There's just soo many I've seen I don't know where to begin. Preferably under $85 or so. Maybe they'll be a Christmas present if they're cheap enough...

and just for the record, I'm interested in something protective too, not just for warmth, so nothing heated or stuff like that. Just good all-around gloves with a bit of toastiness to them

Both have lots of great gloves under your price range.

When its really cold and I have to go ridding I usually wear regular protective ridding gloves without perforations and put on a pair of thin glove liners underneath. That way you don't give up any protection. I usually go up 1 size in the gloves in order to get the same felling.....not to tight.

if you want performance riding gloves they typically won't be warm. There are a couple discussions on gloves in some of the cold weather threads from a few months back. my a* gloves aren't good for much less than 50F. I have a summer glove set and a winter glove set. Just a thought.

silk glove liners are popular to keep the hands warm, that and having hand warmers installed on your bike are supposed to go a long way.

Alpinestars, DryStar series.

They have one model in the lineup that has good protection. I have not tried them (I have the model below) but I have no doubts in them.

i actually hate to say it, but harley had a kick ass pair of gauntlets that are great fitting and had a shitload of protection on them...if you want to stay local and find a good pair to try on and then search online for the pair, go to a dealer...i really liked mine until they got trashed a few years ago when i was out snow-mobiling and other shit...

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!
