Comfort range on Pearl Amfib 5-finger gloves(10 posts)

Comfort range on Pearl Amfib 5-finger glovesBergMann

Does anyone ride the 5-finger Pearl Izumi Amfib gloves?
What is the comfort range on those?

I am looking for a glove with a comfort range in between my Specialized neoprenes (good down to about 50 deg.) and my ski gloves (30 deg or lower).

Other posts on this board suggested that the Amfib lobsters are best at temps below 30 degrees, so I'm leaning towards the 5 finger model for slightly warmer days.
Pearl Amfib 5-finger gloves work OK for me to the upper 30s...PdxMark

but not for multiple hours at that temp. They are better above 40. For multi-hour rides in the 30's, I prefer mid-weight ski gloves.
sounds about rightJS Haiku Shop

mine are ok high 20s to mid 40s.

this is somewhat subjective, though.

none of mine are any good in 35-45 degree rain (i'll pull out the plastic grocery bags).

what brand and model ski glove do you find effective <30*F?

I've got a set of Mountain Hardwear Chugach gloves (a lot like their current Recon model). Not a cheap solution ($100 plus if you're paying retail), but very toasty.

25 to 40 -- but no more than 2hrsms

I am comfortable with the 5 finger AmFibs when it is between 25 and 40 (I have not done any rides below 25). However, one caveat: when the temperatures are below 35 or so, I rarely ride more than two hours.

I'm fine with mine from around 25-35... above that and frankly my hands sweat too much! And temps in San Antonio seldom get below 25 so they're untested below.

haven't done any long rides in below freezing temperatures though--mostly just commuting

Maybe it's me, but my finger tips get very cold in these gloves below 35, while the rest of my hand is fine. It's better when I add a polypro glove liner, which works down to about 25. I think these are pricy at retail, but a good deal if you can get them cheap. I have some old Performance Gore-tex gloves that work just as well that were about $20.
