Block the chill.
Packability is essential for commuters and late season cyclists alike. The Pearl Izumi's Select Softshell Lite Glove offers the protection to ride through crisp weather, and it's light enough to easily stuff in a rear jersey pocket or pannier.
Constructed from lightweight, wind-blocking Select Softshell Lite, this cool weather glove confidently defends against both wind and water penetration. It is also the recipient of Thermal Lite to add warmth retention, and to wick perspiration. This combination will prevent cold frontal winds and damp conditions from cutting rides short.
The synthetic palm is treated with grippy silicone print for an excellent connection to wet grips, hoods, or bar tape. The wrist closure is longer then traditional gloves to add warmth and help lock out the elements. Pearl Izumi also gives the Select Softshell Lite Glove reflective elements for low light safety. It's available in sizes X-Small to XX-Large

Cold Weather Commuter

I commute year round and have a variety of gloves for the purpose. When the temps are in the 40s you need more than just coverage, you need windproof - and these fit the bill. Nice fit, good enough dexterity and feel for brakes, shifters and wiping your nose. Cuff is soft and fits snugly under jacket wrists. Probably not enough for the coldest (sub-freezing) but PI makes some other stuff for those days!
