I have two in one gloves, winter and summer all in one and haven't yet had a problem.

In the winter I use ski gloves from Tresspass or Mountainwarehouse. Current ones have lasted 4 years, again they go in the washing machine.

Works for me. :028:

Good idea. As a skier I already have the goods, only concern is that the ski gloves lack any impact protection. In winter I use those split mitten gloves which Hein Gericke used to sell,  currently missing from there web site. But I'll try they anyway as warm hands will always be better for control than cold hands

The protection v comfort and usability is always taken into consideration. The Oakley ones have knuckle protection and the ski gloves zero. I used the Oakley's 36 degree heat and the vents did the trick. Most other riders in the area were out in shorts and t-shirts! :028:
