Barrier Deep Winter Gloves

(32 customer reviews)


The Barrier are a highly insulated, cycling specific, winter glove. Keeping cyclist’s hands warm in 35 countries.


Next to the skin is a soft, thin fleece lining offers loads of warmth; Around the outside of that there’s a polyurethane membrane that provides the weatherproofing and stops ALL wind from stripping finger heat. The bulk of the insulation comes courtesy of 100g HyTex internal glove, while the  final outer layer is a combination of 5 specific, hard-wearing synthetic fabrics; each chosen for durability, malleability or reflective qualities.

The seams are on the outside of the liner rather than pressed up against your fingers so there’s no irritation there. The lowers are synthetic leather with silicon printing on both the palms and the fingers that gives you a decent amount of grip to prevent hands slipping on wet bar tape or levers.

Upgraded visibility and inner lining for breathability for 2020

    Bought with the Ardennes gloves, and really impressed with both of them, especially the materials and cuff length for jacket overlap. I measured my hand at just shy of 22cm so was wary of sizing, but the XL’s fit perfectly. Definitely size up, I usually wear a large in other brands. Will be back for more

    Superb. Just buy them. This is a purchase you will thank yourself for making.

    The quality is first rate, the detail- stitch work, leatherette grip, gel pads, the nose wipe, the wrist closure are the best I’ve ever seen in a single glove.
    I’ve got a drawer full of winter gloves from Castelli, 45north ,Bontrager, pearl Izumi that are now retired.

    superb quality as usual from galiber.

  4. Malcolm Carson (verified owner)

    Worn today for the first time in temperatures of 2 degrees up to a mighty 5. Fabulous. I am prone to get terrible aches in cold hands, and hitherto no glove has resolved the problem. Brilliant value and usual Galibier quality.

    my go to winter gloves

  6. Dave Reed (verified owner)

    Very rarely do reviews but had to give excellent feedback for these. Arrived yesterday and tried them out immediately. Apart from some extememely bulky ski gloves these are the warmest gloves i’ve owned and i do suffer badly with cold fingers. They seem very well made and look like they’ll last a good few years. Oh, and despite what reviewer says i found these worked fine on garmin touchscreen. Totally recommended!

  7. Stephen Waldron (verified owner)

    Wow, these gloves are amazing.Used them on a 80km Spin with the temp at 2c and not once did I feel the cold. Gear change was easy and hassle free.

  8. Nicola Olive (verified owner)

    Look the business,fab fit, super comfy, just waiting for the cold weather to arrive to put these bad boys to the test properly!

    Not being funny but these are the best winter gloves I have come across & I have tried & tested many pairs! Northern Ireland winters are cold, not North European cold where you have sub zero but dry, we get wet icy cold winds & loads of wet, these gloves keep the water out longer than any Castelli / Assos / Campy gloves i own & a better wind proofing than any as well.
    So good i bought the latest version even though my other pair are still working perfectly well, I carry the other pair on any winter ride so I can change at the coffee break & have warm toasty hands again.

    These gloves are excellent performers in dry cold conditions but a word of warning if your expecting these to be waterproof. Simply put they are not and on a recent cold weather ride with sleet and snow they failed within 30 minutes causing me to abort the ride. Galibier don’t specifically mention water-proofness but it’s something I’d expect for a product described as ‘Deep Winter’. 5 Star dry performer, 1 Star wet weather protection.

    I’ve had these for six weeks now and wear them to commute in winter. They’re quite structured, stuff almost to start with, and with the thick gel on the palms feel more like a gauntlet, but they are amazingly warm. Really impressive, so far totally waterproof, not hot and sweaty but just nice and warm. I’ve been suffering from Reynauds so these have been a boon this winter. Had no problems with shifting/braking although the overall feel is quite bulky, they allow all the movement you need. One caution: get a size larger than the chart says, the L were too small and I ended up needing the XL.

    Outstanding. Worn yesterday for 2.5 hours with average temp 1C & a fresh northerly windchill of at least another -5 degrees. Throw in a couple of rain and hail showers and my fingers were still toasty warm and dry. The gloves look and feel quality and the padding and leather sections offer great functionality for grip and comfort. My hand measures 21cm across the knuckles and the medium size fit like a glove

  13. Mark Barrow (verified owner)

    Excellent gloves -2 this week hands were toasty
    Great value for money as is all Galibier stuff

  14. Ian Houghton (verified owner)

    These are my goto gloves in winter, my other Castelli / Assos gloves now sit in the drawer unused.

  15. Thomas Lewington

    Brilliant gloves, my pair have done 4 winters and are still keeping me warm but looking a bit worn now and I need a new pair. Definitely buy the same again.

  16. matt.coxy (verified owner)

    Fantastic gloves! Keeping me really warm in this cold snap. Knocking off a star purely because the index figure gets slightly ripped every time you undo the velcro – I imagine eventually it will wear off. I’m now having to be really careful when I undo the gloves.

  17. Mike

    The best winter gloves I’ve ever owned, and I be tried quite a few including big brands and even neoprene.i use mostly for commuting and in the recent sub zero temps there was some chill on the fingertips but it was bearable for a 45 min ride. Just one thing the reflective panel material has started to have fine splits across the knuckles, but this hasn’t affected performance.

  18. Rob Smith

    Have to agree with what others have said regards then being a great pair of gloves, toasty warm without the bulk. Have to dock a star due to the fact that there is a flaw in the design – when you do the velcro up you can end up with a gap at the base of the thumb. Really could do with an inner gusset to alleviate this problem.

    I’m ‘careful’ when it comes to spending money. More fool me though as I look upon a pile of £20-£30 winter gloves of various makes, all promising warm toasty hands at temperatures close to freezing, but none delivering. I told myself that it was a false economy and I’d better start looking at gloves north of fifty notes. But wait, maybe I’ll just give another pair around the £25 mark a chance (I never learn). The gloves arrived, and off I set in a temperature of -3°. Expecting the usual freezing fingers I was pleasantly surprised to find my hands and more importantly my fingers were in fact warm and toasty. Wow. To say I was impressed would be an understatement. At the price I paid for these gloves it felt like a steal. 75 miles later, temperature climbing to a high of 1° and with a biting wind the gloves were still performing excellently. I couldn’t fault them and I became the smuggest cyclist in our band of five, the rest of which were wearing inferior (and in some cases) more expensive gloves. Top marks – warm, not too bulky and well-made.

    The best Winter gloves I have used to date. Temperatures down to -5 Celsius, and no issue with Cold at all. Brilliant.

  21. Ian Johnston (verified owner)

    I bought these gloves after getting painfully sore and numb fingers on recent winter rides. Wore them today with 1 degree air temperature and -5 degree windchill. Fingers and hands stayed nice and warm. Brilliant winter gloves.

  22. Simon (verified owner)

    These look like really nice gloves, well designed, good quality and look great BUT – the XL size has short fingers (for an XL). Wore them for the first time this morning and ended up with cold finger tips. Shame as I had high hopes after reading other reviews.

  23. Bernard Cunningham

    Great gloves, my hands have never been cold while using them, so much so my wife steals them to go running.

  24. Arno Smit (verified owner)

    I used the gloves first in a 200 km iceskating trip under difficult conditions with temperatures from -7 to +8 and they kept me warm and I felt safe for falling on the ice. I really liked the sensitivity at the fingertips, handy for switching GoPro on and off. After 7 hours of use they became a little damp inside (from sweating) and became a little more difficult to put off and on. Maybe one size bigger was better for me (I have XL).

  25. Matt (verified owner)

    They are good gloves, and they are well made, as anything made by Galibier, but they are not as warm as I was hoping. Obviously this is individual, but I found that in 2-3 celsius I already have to use additional thin gloves as an inner liner. Had I known, I would have bought a size up.

  26. Aidan Berry (verified owner)

    At 4 Celsius tonight these gloves kept me warm on the way to do some hill repeats. During the hill repeats when I was heating up he gloves were excellent and I wasn’t overheating.

    I even felt good about the reflective parts of the gloves when signalling a turn.

    Would happily recommend these gloves

  27. CraigB

    Absoloutely fantastic gloves, super comfy and warm.. probably the best full winter glove you can buy, especially at this price!

  28. Dusty73 (verified owner)

    First ride out with these gloves,temperature was just above freezing,hands kept warm and dry (no sweatyness when I took them off) would definitely recommend,expensive looking gloves at an affordable price.

  29. Stephen Ryan (verified owner)

    Great winter gloves. Have them about a month now and done a few winter rides between 2°C and 5°C. Best winter gloves I’ve had yet. Way better than the well known brands I’ve had before.

  30. Dave P (verified owner)

    Brilliant gloves. Kept my hands toasty warm and dry on a cold night ride.. love the comfort and fit of the gloves and the bonus reflective feature for that bit of added safety without looking like your usual “commuter” gloves

  31. D. Evans

    read the review above; its accurate in every way.
    Neat fitting, without any bulk around gripping bars or levers, left me with a very intuitive feel for the bike whilst warm and dry-not many gloves do this.

  32. Joel Robinson

    These are the Ronseal of gloves!

    First ride wearing these was 5 hours in the saddle at an average temperature of 1°C and a high of 2.5°C, with the odd rain shower thrown in. Finger tips were warm throughout the ride, no damp feeling putting the gloves back on post-cafe stop and extremely comfortable padding.
