    I use Petzl Cordex lightweight gloves. The are rock climbing / rappelling gloves, so they have plenty of padding and leather reinforcement in the palms and fingertips. They aren't the cheapest, but they last me nearly a year before finally giving up the ghost and needing to be replaced. In the winter I line them with these guys that I found at Costco to give a bit of insulation.
    Most likely I've 'over engineered' things, but it's hard to find a perfect pair of gloves for all seasons, so this is what I've come up with.

    I use powerchair, been years since manual chair. But have poor circulation and hand stay cold year round. Found some Under Armour gloves that has good grip even though they are made mostly out of spandex that can be used as glove liners in winter. Picked up at local Ross Store for like $12 a pair.
    They really do work for winter as glove liners, too. No problem pulling on winter gloves over them. Folks using fingerless gloves might find they help keep cold off fingers in cool weather as well.
    "Good Luck!"

    I use Metolius Climbing Gloves. They are a bit pricey ($35/pr), but they go on sale sometimes; I found them for $15/pr a few years ago, and bought three pair. I like them snug, so had a cobbler sew on finger pulls. I also have a pair of oversize deerskin mittens to slip over my gloved hands when it's real cold outside.

    I use these as well (without the modifications). They are the best gloves I have used and I have tried a lot of different gloves.

    Checked the link. Have to admit- those are nice looking gloves.

    Bike gloves. I don't like my gloves super heavy.

    The hatch gloves are excellent in that they provide very good carpal tunnel protection. Most other gloves do not give satisfactory protection to the wrist area.

    Cold/Wet but not super cold (<15 degrees)...

    When it is colder I use these.

    Both give me pretty good dexterity while providing excellent grip.

    The NS430 is my favorite as well. I use mostly fingers and thumb, when contacting my short-tab push rings, rarely palm, so the nice fingerless climbing gloves do me no good. I especially appreciate the reinforced finger tips on the NS430, since that's what I grip with.
