In this article I’m going to give you the warmest women’s cyling gloves. And with warmest, I truly mean cycling gloves that will ensure you stay comfortable while riding in sub-zero freezing temperatures.
That means the gloves on this list feature the most innovative insulation, the most durable and grippy leather or synthetic palms, and are obviously both water- and windproof (the POC Thermal gloves being the exception to that rule).
It also means multiple layered gloves with taped seams and waterproof liners and fabric. In short, the ultimate protection when the weather circumstances demand it.
Enough talk, here’s my list of the warmest women’s cycling gloves in the market today.
Giro Proof Gloves
When you like to ride in sub-zero conditions and still want to be dry and warm the Giro Proof gloves help you step up your game.
These are true winter gloves with Polartec Power Dry insulation to keep out the cold and form a protective barrier between your hands and the rain, sleet and snow. The upper construction adds another waterproof DDS (Direct Dry Solution) membrane. You can never have enough protection to keep your hands dry.
The gloves also feature an very durable and waterproof AX Suede Echo Diamond palm, which makes the glove sturdy without losing grip and control on the handlebars.
As with all Giro winter gloves, these ones also have touchscreen technology integrated in the fingertips.
The Giro Proof gloves are the warmest waterproof cycling gloves in Giro’s lineup.
Giro 100 Proof Gloves
The Giro 100 Proof gloves have all the features of the Giro Proof gloves using a split finger design.
Unlike traditional lobster gloves the 100 Proof gloves combine three fingers, leaving the index finger as the only loose one besides the thumb. The reasoning besides this is that you maintain dexterity while adding extra warm in a larger area where the three fingers are located.
Gore Wear C5 GORE-TEX Thermo Gloves
The Gore Wear C5 GORE-TEX Thermo gloves are minimalistic all-weather gloves for cold and wet conditions.
The GORE-TEX waterproof fabric keeps your hands dry, while the silicone located in the palm let’s you maintain your grip on the handlebars.
A thick fleece liner ensures the warmth produced by your body is kept in place, and a foam padding in the palm means that you stay comfortable and cold from your handlebars is kept at bay as well.
An excellent glove for people who don’t want the bulk of a sub-zero deep winter glove, but still want to be sufficiently protected when the weather takes a turn for the worst.
POC Thermal Gloves
The POC thermal gloves are high-tech gloves for winter riding. The thin leather palm ensures maximum grip on your handlebars, while the entirety of the glove’s palm has a PrimaLoft Gold liner.
The back has a PrimaLoft Aerogel liner, which offers the ultimate in insulation versus weight ratio. This liner is covered with an water resistant and windproof stretch fabric. Just as the Hirzl Gripp Thermo 2.0, these gloves are made for above freezing cold temperatures and prioritize grip above insulation.
The gloves features a touchscreen strip on both the thumb and index finger.
Sealskinz Waterproof Cold Weather Gloves with Fusion Control
For deep winter rides the Sealskinz Waterproof Cold Weather Gloves with Fusion Control offer a 100 percent waterproof product.
By combining goatskin leather with a waterproof but highly breathable inner membrane and Merino wool liner, the glove combines the aspects of warmth, with moisture-wicking features and water resistance.
Whereas the entire palm is made up of leather the back combines leather and softshell to aid in the gloves flexibility. Besides the fact that goatskin is already extremely durable, you can further increase the gloves lifespan by maintaining the leather.
If you expect to ride not only in the cold but also in wet conditions, you can’t go wrong with a pair of these gloves.
Sealskinz Waterproof Heated Gloves
Should you want to be able to ride no matter what extreme conditions could deter you, the Sealskinz Waterproof Heated gloves combine an already solid product with three different power modes to actively warm your hands for an additional 5 to 6 hours.
A goatskin leather palm is lined with a PrimaLoft Gold insulation. Atop the back of the hand sits a heating element that can be controlled with a single button. Three led lights indicate the level of heat that’s being disseminated into the silver dotted liner that reflects heat back into the glove.
A combination of polyester and elestane ensures the glove can be flexed easily, while an added layer of polyurethane adds even more insulation to the already impressive glove.
Naturally the glove is 100 percent water- and windproof, making this the ultimate leather glove to confront the harshest of road cycling conditions head on.
Sealskinz Waterproof Extreme Cold Weather Cycle Split Finger Gloves
The Sealskinz Waterproof Extreme Cold Weather Cycle gloves are what the name suggest, gloves to weather the most extreme temperatures that are still deemed rideable.
The split-finger design adds warmth, besides American-made Climashield insulation to minimize loss of build up heat in the glove.
Added reflectiveness makes you visible for other road-users in low-light conditions
Sealskinz Waterproof Cold Weather Reflective Gloves
The Sealskinz Waterproof Cold Weather Reflective Gloves feature PrimaLoft Gold insulation, one of the warmest synthetic insulation on the market.
This sub-zero gloves adds a reflective material on the upper construction for heightened visibility, making it a solid touring and communiting companion for extreme conditions.
