Cold Weather Gloves Deal!

For anyone looking for decent cold weather, waterproof gloves, Iron Pony (www.ironpony.com on the web or local if you're near Columbus, OH) has a blowout on the Teknic Thunder cold weather leather gloves. They're selling for $19.99. Not sure what retail is, but some other internet sites are selling them for $59.99.

I bought a pair and they seem really nice. They have nice padding, are totally wind and waterproof and have lengthy gauntlets that keep the wind from traveling up your arms.

Anyway, just a heads up if anyone else is interested.

Cheers!

w00t!! Thanks for posting this! I just got back from the Tour de Pisgah ride, and I completely froze my ASS off mainly in part that all I have our warmer weather riding gloves. I ended up having to buy a $5 pair of construction gloves at the local gas station just so I could make the ride back to johnson city without losing my fingers. $19 looks to be a great deal, think I am going to order a pair tonight. Here is a short review I found for them, compared to other models, listed about a third of the way down.

Do they look like these?


If so they are okay down to about 45 degrees. I wore them while riding the V-max around southern Ohio a week ago. I froze my hands off till around 11 am when it warmed up a little. :mrgreen:

Nope Buildit... I believe you have the Chicane model... These are the Thunders...



Seriously insulated, waterproof, windproof...

You wouldn't have been cold in these at 25 degrees much less 45 degrees. Don't want to wear them at anything above 50 degrees though. Way to warm... winter only I would say.

Ah, I see the truth of it. :mrgreen:
One of these day I need to get heated hand grips on the V-max like the KLR. With the bark busters on the KLR wind isn't too bad, but in triple digits on the V-max your extremities get cold quick! :lol: I actually had a snow mobile glove over the top of the teknic glove on my right hand.

*Are those wipers between the index finger and thumb or fabric?

Thanks for the heads-up! I needed a pair of winter gloves for my wife. They have only small and XL left. Fortunately, she has 'lady hands,' and the smalls will work just right.
Thanks again!

Bummer!

I just got a call from Iron Pony to let me know they had an inventory problem, and their gloves that were inventoried as XL were actually 2XL, so they had to cancel my order.

I am disappointed, because they looked like the perfect winter riding glove, but kudos to Iron Pony for actually calling me to let me know.
