When choosing motorcycle gloves, take into account the climate of the area in which you live and ride, to get the features that match your riding conditions:
Also important is how long your preferred riding season is, and if you will be traveling to another type of weather pattern (for example a vacation trip from Florida to the Smoky Mountains).
These are some key features by season:
- Cold weather/winter motorcycle gloves: Insulation to keep your hands warm, plus special features like windproof and waterproof. Ideal for riding in severe cold and wind, from about the low 20s to about 45 degrees Fahrenheit.
- All weather motorcycle gloves: All around protection from the elements, from about 35 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Designed to keep you comfortable across a wide range of temperatures, without bulk.
- Summer motorcycle gloves: Specially vented and constructed to keep you cool and protected on summer rides, above 65 degrees Fahrenheit.
