I usually purchase only motorcycle specific gear because it just works. However, while in Home Depot I spied some work gloves on the shelf called Premium Defense and looked closer...leather palms, finger and knuckle protection, gauntlet type to go over jacket sleeves to keep out the wind, black & hi-viz with reflective panel on the top of the hand, looked to be well made so what the heck, if they don't work for riding I can always use them for cutting firewood or something. $14 and change. So far, I can say GREAT! Warm enough down to about 50* F, flexible enough with good dexterity to operate switches and controls. Too early to say about durability, but we will see.
Also bought a Klim balaclava. Thin enough to be comfortable under the helmet and keeps the wind off my neck. $30
