Glove recommendations

Getting back into riding after a few years. I picked up a new to me 2007 R1200GS. Im using some gloves I use for skiing and can use some ideas for winter and summer gloves that offer protection for my hands in case I go down. Thanks everyone.

The (expensive) Lee Parks DeerSport PCi are possibly the most comfortable gloves I've owned. I haven't crashed with them, yet, so I can't quite agree with Rick92040 that they are the best only because of lack of experience

I use Sedici outer gloves and an inner glove liner if needed.

Have a look at the ski bum Coupons gloves.
I also have them and using them for more than a year.
They are too warm and comfortable and can use in both summers and winters.

I use those yellow deerskin garden gloves you pick up at hardware stores for 10-15$ for daily driving. Lots of air and comfort. Your hands can get yellow in the rain.

If I know it’s going to rain or be cold or both I use BMW 2 in 1 Enduroguard that are a gortex dual purpose glove. They have 2 slots for your hands. If cold slip hands into a double glove for warmth and if warm slip your hands into the outer layer which gives more tactile sense for your fingers. $$ and some love 'em / some don't.

I have a pair of simple gortex gloves (BMW brand) for rain warm days. I picked them up about 25 years ago and they still work.

For the very cold, say below freezing long rides, I hook a pairs of warm and safe glove liners up to the rest of my warm and safe long underwear and all are powered by my bike. Toasty.

BMW Motorrad Gloves

Took a while to run these down, they are Kangaroo skin or have Kangaroo skin in them...not allowed to be sold in CA now. So while in AZ I bought a pair. About $100 and I'm happy with them.
Tag just says BMW Motorrad and they are made in Germany. They have a hard plastic piece across the knuckles for protection. Like mentioned above I can't attest to the protection in a crash as I have not experienced that.
I've heard nothing but good about Lee Parks Gloves and suspect I will try a pair soon.

I'm using gloves from fox creek leather. Solid gloves.

I've used the BMW ones with dual entries (below someone has url), they are very comfortable gloves. Said that, the leather is cheap and very thin and after 1 year of using them, holes around thumb where the thin leather has failed.

Lots of good gloves out there. Problem is finding the fit on the internet. Better to go to a shop and try gloves on until you find a pair that suits you. Too much material will bunch up in your palm and be a real nuisance, as will fingers that are too long or too short. Labeling as to size is not uniform. Gloves that are too tight are a real pain to get off when sweaty.
