First year back into riding and I need some gloves. Got my old stand-by Mechanix gloves for the warmer weather riding, and a set of waterproof nylon shell motorcycle gloves with fleece liners; but thinking about getting a really good set of snowmobiling gloves that breath well and keep your hands nice and dry.

Looking at Arctiva's, Castles, Klims, etc - but there are so many different models out there. What do you like the best?

I don't mind spending a little more to get better quality - Goretex jacket $$$, Goretex bibs $$$, Goretex boots $$$, good Gloves - ??$'s; Keeping my hands warm and dry on an 8 hour ride.... priceless!

I just bought Klim Togwotee's earlier this year. Very warm glove and they have removable liners. I was riding on Friday in 29* (-3 celcius) weather without the liners and my handwarmers "off". Today I went for a walk in -20* (-29 celcius) weather and I was too hot with the liners in. Took them out halfway through the walk. I would highly recommend these as they do not feel bulky, especially with the liner removed.

ive heard nothing but bad things about klim gloves over on the snowest forum. mostly that they only last a season. maybe guys are harder on gloves in the mountains? anyway, im in the market for new gloves too and i think im gonna give the ruoutside brand a try.
