My old winter gloves are getting long in the tooth... they ain't what they used to be. (I've got a newer pair... well, I've got a newer glove. One of the two gloves has gone into seclusion somewhere - I'll probably find it in June. I've got a couple other pairs of heavy winter gloves, but I hesitate to use 'em when bicycling because thinner gloves give me better tactile feel on the controls, turning my headlight on, etc.)
I did some casual shopping at bike stores... but heck, the gloves I liked were all $30, $40, $50! Ouch!
Today I picked up a pair of gloves for 8 bucks! If you have a Harbor Freight in your area, they are the "Cold Weather Work Gloves," regularly $14.99, on sale for $7.99 thru the end of January. They've got grippy palms, Thinsulate, velcro wrist closures. They're supposedly waterproof... I'd say water-resistant is more accurate. (L-SKU#96606, XL-SKU#96612)
