|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.

|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 protectant....works 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.
