I was thinking about getting a pair of arctiva comp rr gloves to match my jacket. I was wondering if you have any opinions on these or any other gloves I should consider?

I wore Polaris leather gloves last season and they worked really well. Only had one day where my hand was cold, and it turned out that my handwarmer isn't working on the throttle side. Any glove that has a high weight nylon and a good liner will be good for riding.

Unfortunately, I lost those gloves, so I picked up a pair of Arctiva Comp 5 gloves from DK. Seem to be real warm, but run pretty small. They are XL and are as snug as my L Polaris gloves were.

Any glove that has a high weight nylon and a good liner will be good for riding.

if you got a hundred bucks the klim gloves are really nice.

something a little less spendy but still an amazing product are the polaris e-vent line from motorfist.

they are waterproof and will keep your hands warm. only glove ill ever wear now.

I've gone through a pair of gloves almost every season, last couple years I've used a heavy weight leather Katahdin brand. They've worked well, but I'll be upgrading to some HMKs this season.

In the past, I've used Castle-X gloves. Hated every minute with them. My hands have never been colder.

The last few years I used Gore-Tex Grandoe gloves. They seem to be similar to some of the Klim gloves, but at a cheaper price. I believe I paid $40 for mine on sale years ago. My hands have always been warm and dry in them. If the interior of the gloves are wet at the end of the day, it's from my hands sweating if anything.

For this year, I'll hopefully be trying out some Motorfist Valkyrie gloves. They look hopeful...

I have some Burton snow board gloves that are going strong for like five years now. They aren't overly thick and choking like some gloves and my hands could be cold as ice and I put them on and am good to go. I got some new Castle something gloves last year and they are junk...brand new and will sit in the closet.

my favorite sledding glove are super old and kinda worn out. but they just feel great and i haven't found anything even close to compare.. they are made by Dead Cow (i don't think they are around anymore). but i think i found a new pair the other day at eddie bauer. they have this new line of winter stuff. the gloves are soft leather outside and 3m insulation inside with a neoprene layer around the wrist. they would be my next glove if i were shopping for a new pair

I plan on trying motorfist this year. A local shop has a pair that are $85 and have a leather outer lining and they swear by them for cold backcountry riding. They're waterproof, and good for -40 plus wind chill ( wind resistant ). They seemed to be pretty good quality as well.
