Uh... in winter.

Although my BMW Winter Gloves are mangled. Melted them holding onto the engine block for warmth, and don't want to not use them as that's $200 wasted. They have a hole in them that lets in seemingly pure baltic wind.

For me it has to do with temps and not seasons,
John Baker gloves come out about 75F and above
Dragon Slayer gloves are for 60 to 74F
H-D heated gloves are for 40 to 59F
Cabella's Snowmobile gloves are for 19 to 39F

Rain cover gloves - rain except the Cabellas are waterproof already.
That's a fair collection of gloves that.

Personally I have a pair of RST short gloves that I have worn in all weather, throughout the year in Scotland I might add and neveer had any issues possibly due to heated grips and having spent a lot of my life working or being outside in all weather.

That being said I have just got a pair of Held dual something gauntlets which are now my favourite. Will try find the correct name for them.

I think I've concluded that 12C or below for lower speed rides is winter glove weather for me, my hands get cold easily!

I rode through the winter and anything below 50 degrees F required my heavier winter gloves. Anything below 35 degrees required my liners + heavier winter gloves to be tolerable. I never pulled the trigger on gloves with built-in warmers or grips w/ warmers, so no clue there. My hands were always the first to get cold during winter rides.

As for summer, I have two types of gloves with the first being great 50-75 and the second being my best option for 75+. I almost always gear up for the weather of the day since Colorado is so variant. The trickier one is when to take my jacket liner out -- seems anything above 60 is fine there.
