Ultra thin gloves?

Postby FM-USA » Wed Jan 06, 2016 5:07 pm



Has anyone tried those silky smooth gloves inside there regular riding gloves?
What I'm looking for is info on how well near nothing gloves retain warmth.

I've seen the glove liners, but like you, couldn't imagine wearing them under other gloves.
I guess I don't ride in cold enough temps to worry about it too much.

I have been caught wearing light gloves instead of my heavy ones and just put on a pair of the nitrile gloves I keep in the tool kit as well.
I think that it was because they wouldn't let air through that made it warmer.

That's some info but I did try the nitrile gloves at the store then there mechanic gloves over, could not get past the gummy grab.
I do want SOME grab through the layers of gloves and I know silk doesn't offer much, it's slippery.
I've dabbled with clear silicone in the palm and fingers area for grip, works great as long as it's worked in otherwise in time it peals off.

I use the HF 9 mil nitrile gloves at home for mechanical or times when I know that I'm going to get real dirty.
Quite often, I take dish soap and rub it into my hands and let it dry a little.
It gets down in the pores and not only keeps most of the dirt off, but all you have to do is get your hands wet and they are already soapy.

I use that Johnson & Johnson "water repellent" hand softener. Works like a charm also unless it's rubbed off while your working.
I tell my girl to hold off doing the dishes, I'll wash when I'm done working. Works like a charm, no scrubbing. ;)

I use the military wool glove liners under leather gloves. But if you are going to ride in cold weather, nothing beats a set of heated grips. They are inexpensive, easy to install and work like a charm.

I build up my resistance to the cold every year and so far have not used my elec. heat equipment.
The non elec. heat clothing I have I'm good to around -11*F and the winter of 2013-14 it dropped to -17*F. I did make extra stops to warm up the finger tips.

I made trigger finger waterproof glove covers to go over all my gloves, VERY versatile.
I just picked up a pair of 100 gram Thinsulate ski gloves. They're rather snug in the glove covers and seem to slow my circulation a little. So onto making a little larger glove covers in the next day or two... hitting +40 here tomorrow.

EH, 'do-wha-ya-got'a-do'. 8-)

I bought a pair of glove liners years ago but never wore then cause I got electric gloves shortly after that, I think the glove liners are in the trunk of the 1500 wing

I read the reviews, always great stuff reading real life experiences!

"NO SILK FOR ME!"

Next up, nylon, rayon or similar material glove liners.
BTW... NO WOOL! I want comfy, not itch.

Ask any woman how they like wearing nylons in the summer. I'm told that silk has the same heat retaining properties as nylon so I bought a pair of silk glove liners and silk socks. I can definitely tell the difference when I don't wear them. My glove liners are pretty messed up from snagging on the Velcro parts on my jacket, so I just bought a pair of insulated glove liners, Freeze Out by Bilt, but haven't had a chance to try them out.

Let me know how they feel and work, HIGHLY interested.
Being insulated should make them thicker than silk. Big concern for me.

Tried them today. First under a pair of insulated leather motorcycle gloves.......not too good. Then under a pair of cloth Snow Sport gloves.....EXCELLENT!! I always buy gloves in a size that fits loose, both for comfort and because loose gloves are warmer on me. Anyone ever try wearing mittens while they ride?
I gave my silk gloves to one of my riding buddies when I changed from the leather gloves about half way through the ride, and he's pretty sure his hands were warmer on the second half of the ride. Of course, the air was a little warmer then, too.

BTW...I bought the insulated BILT gloves while they were on a super special sale at Cycle Gear. Normally about $35, I got them for $9 on a "with any purchase" deal. I think that sale ended on the 5th.

I can verify that tight fitting gloves feel colder, it slows your circulation.

I tried the 100gm gloves last night without the glove covers. Much warmer tho I could feel a smidgen of air getting through the seams.
I'm used to 40gm gloves and wasn't all that happy with the thickness of the 100's.
Always trade-offs.
