Handlebar gloves for cycles, ATV'sYou'll like this idea from "down under" - insulated gloves designed in Australia that attach to motorcycle and ATV handlebars so you can slip hands in and out as you drive around.
"Conventional gloves keep you warm but they can make jobs such as gate opening and working livestock more difficult. With our bike gloves your hands are always warm and ready to work when you get off the bike," says A.J. McMaster, inventor, who farms in New South Wales.
McMaster's gloves are vinyl-covered, synthetic wool-lined gloves that simply lace onto the handlebars. They allow normal operation of the bike. He notes that they're big enough so you can wear lightweight gloves inside of them, when it's too cold to go bare handed.
They sell for about $40. The company can sell direct but is looking for a U.S. distributor.
