Non breathable rubber type gloves really do not work for me. Silk liner gloves are good and for very cold weather a blend of silk and merino wool works very well. That said I tend not to ride if the temperature is below 2 C.

I am not certain what your bike is but, both my bikes have grips like these...

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/373224971086

Yes they are cheap but they work and the control is placed on handlebars. Easy to adjust and no ugly control box's. They are 5 and 3 years old, the only problem I had was when Triumph did not plug them in properly :?

Edit to add: they do not get as hot as Oxford grips, when I first got them I thought this would be problem. Conversely my hands never got hot enough to sweat, so stayed warmer..

I added these over the top for comfort as I like a bigger grip.

If your commuting you could consider hassle bar muffs to keep the warmth in. I have never found a need for these but one bike has handle bar guards.

I have found without heated grips no glove is good enough, you keep hands dry but not warm.

For dry hands I have found Gortex is best. I also like and inner and outer cuffs. Other wise water goes up sleave or rind into glove when stopped.. although they are a PITA To put on.

I put a pair of cheap bar muffs on my commuter in winter (£20) just like the ones in the link. They have been cut to go around the mirrors but work well keeping the cold off, but I do have heated grips too.

The wife bought these as a Christmas present for me last year, I rode the bike through the winter on the daily commute, admittedly its only a 34 mile round trip, but can happily say, with confidence, that they did keep my hands dry in the rain, I had heated grips on the bike, the only part of my hands that suffered was the tips of my fingers, I also wore glove liners. The gloves felt a little stiff and awkward at first, presumably due to the armour, once I'd worn them a few times they were great. Winters on its way back again and these will be my glove of choice for the forthcoming bad weather.

Yup, having some inner gloves really do make a difference, it's getting cold at nights now, the past few weekends when I've been riding home at night, I have started to feel the chills from the temperature dropping at night.
Ride safe everyone, hope to see you all out there!

I've been using the Dainese Tempest D-Dry gloves for the last couple of weeks. Early mornings and late nights riding to work and home meant that the gloves I have wasn't up to the colder temps and the rain.

So I got myself a pair of these and the feel like a pair of ski gloves in the padding around the fingers, but still with plenty of bend in them.

Kept the rain off my hands, even though they are a shorter glove the elasticated securing strap works well.

Thanks. I will bare those in mind for the future. I still wonder how good battery heated gloves are. Not the ones from maplin though. I think we established that these should be off the market!

The other bonus with silk under gloves is they stop the problem of putting your gloves on damp / sweaty hands :thumb:

Yep, just make sure you don't get them caught on any velcro on your gloves :crybaby:
