wtb: Shell Waterproof glove

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a shell (non-insulated or low insulation) glove that is seriously waterproof and more form fitting. I usually wear a large. I ride my bike to work all winter and also backcountry ski a lot so I would like it to breathable, goretex or something like that.

I thought this would be a snap to find but all my searches have come up short so far. I'm looking to buy something from one of you or get suggestions for a good glove to fit my needs that I could buy elsewhere.

I usually wear a large
I measure 9" around the knuckles of my hand where my fingers meet my palm.
I measure 7.75" from the tip of the middle finger to the breaking point in the wrist where it joins the palm.

thanks,

asland

 See my post in a fore sale forum on the DaKine Gore Tex gloves.  With the liner out these are very lightly insulating.  They are not too form-fitting though, as they are designed to have an option of a liner glove.  Hestra Heli glove is a bit more form-fitting choice, but of course they are much more expensive than what I offer.  If you go for a bike-specific winter glove, look at cross-country skiing gloves as well, they are always more form-fitting, but alas, much less waterproof.  An out-of-the-box option is also the Hestra Spring glove which is very waterproof, very form-fitting and NOT very breathable.  Also much more expensive.   Good luck,

Alex
