Maybe Cold Enough

Pearl Izumi Softshell Gloves
Last summer, when most at the Hotter 'n Hell were shopping for summer cycling stuff, I was stocking up on leftover winter items. This weekend, I actually got to wear the gloves for the first time. They work well, though I fear they will require a supplemental covering when the temperatures drop below 20F, and their comfortable upper temperature is about 50F.

What is this 20F of which you speak?

@Steve,
Yesterday was cold. I used only El Cheapo Walgreen's $1 gloves and I wasn't too happy about my choice. I should have used a wind-proof pair of gloves. I may have a pair of what you have pictured.
Peace :)

Hmm, I have some Specialized gloves that look to be a similar weight. I've been amazed at the temperature range I can use them in. I don't even wear full-fingered gloves above 50 degrees, but below that I wear these, all the way down into the teens. Maybe you'll be pleasantly surprised with these.

Was well below freezing on my training ride this morning- the tips of my fingers were sooooo coooold.
I really do need a new pair of decent gloves- some nice Pearl Izumi ones like yours would be a good start...!
Regards
Trevor
