hands are freezing in the morning. name a good WINDPROOF glomaurizio

It's getting to be just above freezing here in AZ in the am with the wind. I have pretty sensitive fingers it seems.
Do any of you have a good recommendation for a windproof glove whereby the seams won't spread open when stretched.
I'm more concerned with windproof rather than insulation.
Thin is better in my book.

Don't know the exact name of them, Iso- something or other I think. I've used these for a few years with high success. They are thin and very windproof. On really cold days I use polypro liners with them and everything's OK.

Only gripe - there's no "snot patch" on them - terrycloth to swipe across your nose. Maybe the new ones have it.

Second the Assos Isotex gloves . . .HMS

You're right about the "snot patch." But, I just use the back of the glove, if necessary. The back is fairly soft and absorbent. Because of how I use the back of the glove, I wash them frequently (i.e., whenever I use them to wipe my nose). They have survived well notwithstanding more washings than I can count.

Put a little Vaseline on your hands also....great protection.. have you tried Warm Skin Weather Guard.....a great insulator and skin great!

I have performance windstopper glooves that work well until it gets very cold then I change to something thicker

I have a pair that foils the cold Wyoming wind. Like you, I don't really care about waterproof, but the wind gets to me. These really are windproof. In addition, if it gets below 45 or so, I just put a light liner under them and it is good to very cold.

anyone know the difference between the Performance Neoprene and the performance windstopper, they are both priced about the same

I have a pr of Santini Wind Stopper gloves. I bought them a couple of years ago from Schwab Cycles and they've held up well. They're thin, with just a little loft, and a cuff long enough my wrists aren't exposed. I've used them in the low 30's with a thin glove liner and they work just fine, except they don't have a "snot patch" either.

I've been riding with a standard fleece glove with wind-stopper. They're an Rei house brand and work well down to around 32 degrees.

This weekend the temperature is going to be around 9 degrees for the start of my local group ride on Saturday and I'm breaking out some new PI Infernos.

No insulation or padding, but work really well with a Thinsulate glove liner down into the 30's. I live in Texas and have never felt the need for anything heavier. Here's a link to them at Performance:

No snot wiper on these either :-) Gotta learn how to do the rocket.
