Whats your winter gloves?

I ride deep Into the Chicago winter months every year. Never w/ proper winter gloves. Last year til Dec 8th. I've been using the A* GpPro gloves w/ Cabelas base layer silk liners underneath the gloves. I commute to work, and get to ride back home at nights when temps are in the low teens and w/ the windchill at almost 0 degrees and when riding the air gets even colder. I had to pump my hands and constantly wiggling fingers and thumbs in long straights or when not shifting/braking/clutching to keep hands warm...

Those were some interesting experiences and i had to tough it out in alot of nights. At home fingers burning and swollen for hours

This year i want to get proper winter gloves.

WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND?? WHAT DO YOU USE??

Been looking at the following gloves

Rev'it! ALASKA GTX
Held WARM N DRY
Dainese JERICO

Do you guys have any experience w/ this gloves? sizing? on the Alpinestars GpPro im size LARGE

Whats Alpinestars best winter glove? do they have one??

Look into the possibility of heated grips too. I ride through the year too and I live in northern Indiana. I dont have heated grips but I have heard they are awesome. I have a pair of technics that are leather with a water/windproof. they work well down to about 2-25 f.

Heated grips are well worth it. The feeling of hanging on to something so warm helps my entire body when the wind is chilly.

I've been using Widder electric gloves for years and have commuted year round in Boston, including riding in the 10s and 20s many times. They are bulky and might not offer the very best crash protection, but that was a tradeoff I was willing to make to avoid frostbite. I love the gloves, but the company went out of business a couple years ago. They can occasionally be found on eBay.
