Barrier Deep Winter Gloves

(23 customer reviews)

£24.85

The Barrier are a highly insulated, cycling specific, winter glove.

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 2019 .

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    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

  4. 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.

    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.

  6. CraigB

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

    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

    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.

    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).

  10. Bernard Cunningham

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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. John Walker

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

  14. NP

    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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Ian Houghton (verified owner)

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

  20. Mark Barrow (verified owner)

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

  21. Stuart McCaughey (verified owner)

    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

  22. Matthew N5 (verified owner)

    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.

    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.
