I don't think you will find gloves that are ideal for all seasons. Most all-season
riders will end up with several pairs.

Well ventilated, non waterproof leather gloves for warm summer days.
Held Troy gloves work well for me at this time of year.


For the cold winter months, I haven't seen anything better than the
Richa Cold Protect Gore-tex gloves.

no such thing as an all weather glove, despite what manufacturers might claim.


But think of that as a good thing. Nothing worse than fiddling for switches with big thick clumsy winter gloves.
Also if you have heated grips with thick gloves you really arent getting any benefit when it really cold and wet


My approach is slightly different.

I bought a quality pair of leather summer gloves. Goatskin where it needs to be flexible and they fit perfectly. Are they totally waterproof no, but they will handle an hour or so in the P!ssing rain. Come the winter season I fit a pair of bar muffs which will be better than any glove you can find no matter what the cost.

So I get the full benefit of my heated grips, nice comfortable and flexible gloves and I really dont care what the weather is like in the winter, the muffs prevent the gloves from getting wet.

Three pairs.....
One insulated waterproof pair, for cold winter. Use rain over gloves in extreme cold for wind protection good for 3 hour run in cold.
One medium, light insulation, waterproof, leather, protection panels for shorter runs in winter.
One light summer gloves, leather and protection panels.
Bike used all year and I don't do heated grips.
No way will one pair do all year. Winter ones in summer are much too hot.

+1

Muffs and heated grips are a great job during the winter!

Held do gloves with 2 chambers called air and dry. You put your hand outside in the summer and inside in the winter and don't even have to sing the hokey-Cokey though being German they come with the words! I've had 2 pairs of Held, not this model, and there the best I've ever had. Those will be next

What he says, and what he says. I have RST short gloves for the summer, RevIt GTX for colder/rainy days and above Cold Protects for winter. I have heated grips on my bike. Never tried muffs but I suspect they offer a great wind protection.

I got a pair of these, haven't got to test them as my bike is still out of action but they are very comfy, and should do ok in our climate since winters aren't the coldest

Right on, thanks man.

I'm sure we both appreciate your clarification, should ask admin to make it a sticky.
