Looking for a set of gloves that are warm and waterproof...Northwest region...cold and wet.

Responded on

Any thing with a Goretex fabric. Try looking into Gore's offerings. Check out their website. The ALP-X, specifically the ALP-X "cold-wet" line up they have; you'll see the whole available and suggested outfit, from the base layers, to jacket, & of course, gloves; I have most of this line up (for women, of course) and can tell you it's pretty good, even up here in the Great Lakes area, in all but the coldest (30's or below) days; at that point, you'll really have to beef it up, gear-wise. Their ALP-X over pants are great, too, worn over thermal Windstopper tights. Note: the ALP-X jacket is NOT insulated, it's just a great water proof/windproof shell...wear it over a warmer jacket on nasty, cold & wet rides.
For even more close up pics, look at Competitivecyclist.com (affiliated wt. B.C.).
Look into *Gore's site: www.goreapparel.com. You can research there, and still purchase here!
Hope this helps for your up-coming winter rides!
