Check out LeatherUp.com
They have all kinds of gloves at very good prices. Last year I picked up a pair of carbon fiber nuckle gloves for the misses and myself. Couldn't be happier with their products.

Don't get the lightweight "Bilt" gloves on sale at cyclegear.com.  They lasted 3 weeks then started ripping apart on a seam.

Lots of choices, and check the closeout section for some great buys.

You shouldn't need one Cycle Gear is the only seller of Bilt ans Sedici brand wear.  I ask the salesman the same question when I got my Sedici brand summer gloves. They have a lifetime warranty and Built a 5 year warranty.

I don't buy gloves online. I like trying them on. I found Icon gloves fit me very well. That is one thing that is really tough, certain manu's large might be your xtra large.

The best gloves I ever tried on- Dianese, leather velvet. but really pricey.
For the money a good pair of deer skin American made gloves from a decent hardware store did fine for me when I lost a pair! Doh! I still have them, very comfortable and washable - deerskin. Last a long time, not fancy but work.

I learned my lesson. I put a spare pair of gloves under my seat in the little pocket over the fender. I hate riding without gloves.

I wear a set of Wells Lamont work gloves from Wal Mart: $10.  Nice soft thick leather, and the best fitting gloves I've ever had.

I just bought a set of these Fieldsheer for warm riding.  Nice fit too, but I haven't had a chance to wear them... it hasn't warmed up yet.   Hard to beat for $15.  They run small, so the 3XL that's available will likely fit if you normally wear XL.

For the summer, I found a pair of Icon's.... no cuff, perforated leather with knuckle protection at my local Cycle Gear, AND they were on sale. I have to try on gloves before purchase. I think I tried 20+ pairs before I found the Icon's and they are some of the best fitting gloves I've ever bought.

Myself, I like gloves, with gaunlets. I feel if I have a 'get-off', I know my hands are going to try to save me, and I
want to keep the skin on them, hence, gloves. I have 4 pairs, always an extra in the bags. 1-cold weather(Firstgear?),
2-carbon knuckle leather summers (Cortech injector), 1- leather (From local leather shop). None cost me more than around 60 bucks tops, on sale.

Aerostitch Elkskin Gauntlet gloves, most comfortable gloves I've ever worn. I think they are about $77.00 a pair and well worth it.

Cortech Adrenalin.  Pricey but worth it.
