Crosspoint Waterproof Knit Wool Glove
We're a big fan of wool knit gloves for riding in the milder conditions of the shoulder seasons as the coverage is just right and the dexterity is unmatched. However, the spring and fall can often bring precipitation and traditional knit gloves can become a wet, soggy mess quickly. That is until you get the Crosspoint Waterproof Knit Wool Glove from Showers Pass. Not just for cycling, these gloves are awesome for running, hiking, or any outdoor activity that might involve cooler temps and rain.
Showers Pass claims that the gloves are fully waterproof and it achieves this feat using 3-bonded layers. The exterior is a wear-resistant knit and feels just like the regular knit glove you are used to. Between that and the lining is a waterproof and breathable Artex membrane providing wet weather protection. Finally, a Coolmax moisture wicking and antibacterial knit lining sits softly against your hand. And unlike some other knit gloves, this one features a silicone print on the palm for better grip in the wet conditions you might find yourself in.

Tired of wasting $$$ on cycling gloves?
Tired of bulky gloves getting in the way of timely shifts and/or braking?
Tired of having multiple pairs of gloves for multiple activities?
Well friends, "Marie Kondo" all those other gloves outta your lives and get these.
I've used them down into the 20°F range with a thin liner glove with no complaints both bike commuting (~10 miles) and on dedicated weekend club rides (50+ miles).
They've done double duty shoveling snow off the driveway AND building a sledding track in the back yard for the kids. I've taken them skiing. Considering buying another pair to have as a b/u since "one is none and two is one" is an adage I feel is appropriate for these.
Great Basic Glove

If you do any form of cold weather biking you've probably made the horrible decision to "tough it out" and send it without gloves. I try that move frequently and always regret it when I show up to where I'm going with ice blocks for hands. These gloves are great because they're just like those basic cheap gloves you had as a kid, except with a technical layer sandwiched between the fabric makes them waterproof and blocks a good bit of wind. I like that they look and feel very minimal, don't take up much room when I get where I'm going and stuff them away, and offer enough warmth/protection to keep me biking into the winter. I only used them down to around 20F so far and they were great, but for super cold winter days I think they'll be a bit thin.
