Well it doesn't stay too cold for too long down here but, I tend to ride year round and have tried every kind of glove/liner combo I can think of. Goretex ski gloves with thinsulate liners, REI waterproof windproof liner inside of summer and winter riding gloves and a new pair of scorpion XDR winter gloves with thinsulate liner, (even tried the REI liner inside the scorpions) and below 35 degrees my hands go numb in about half an hour. Christmas rolled around this year and I was suprised with a pair of firstgear heated gloves and the heat troller/thermostat. I rode to work this morning and it was 19 degrees when I left. I have a 45 minute commute and my hands stayed as warm as I needed them to. The gear is a little pricey but considering your dexterity in your hands is a must on a motorcycle I would say they are absoulutely worth the bang for the buck. If I add up all of the other glove liner combo's I have tried in the past 2 years I could have bought two pairs of the firstgear heated gloves. Bottom line with gloves and the rest of Motorcylce gear is you get what you pay for.
