For lobster lovers.
Everybody likes having warm fingers, and most people like lobster, so it stands to reason that
most people will also be fans of the Pearl Izumi P.R.O. AmFib Lobster Cycling
Gloves. Pearl updates this classic style by constructing it from
DWR-coated P.R.O. Softshell, which repels water while maintaining
exceptional breathability, and stuffing it full of low-bulk Primaloft
Gold synthetic insulation. The insulation and soft fleece lining will
stay warm even if they get wet, while the durable Clarino palm is
flexible but abrasion resistant. By using the lobster-claw design, Pearl made this version warmer than the classic AmFib, too. The hook-and-loop cuff closure keeps
heat in and water out, and the soft microfleece thumb panel provides a
perfect surface for nose and goggle wiping.

Outstanding Winter Riding Gloves
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have worn these down into low teen temps and my hands have stayed completely warm. By far the best piece of cold weather gear I own. Highly recommend.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
I bought these gloves last season and since then the amount of winter bike gloves and apparel choices have grown considerably. I think there are better options out there. These fit pretty tight around the wrists so taking them off and putting them back on can be a process. If you haven't ridden lobster claw gloves before there is a learning curve to get comfortable in your position. The main problem I had with these gloves is, there's no padding on the palm and I've never owned a pair of cycling gloves that didn't offer that.
Are the two fingers in each section separated inside? Are the fingers together, without a barrier in between? I'm looking for ones that allow two fingers to touch without anything in between.
The two fingers in each section touch (index and middle) and (ring and pinky). The thumb is obviously separate but stays warm. My gloves are a few years old but I can't imagine Pearl changing the design.
