100% Berserker glove is good. Awesome feel. The new Chromag winter glove has terrible bar feel
Do you mean the Brisker glove? I have a couple of pairs. They last amazing, fit great and are perfect down to around zero if you have warm hands and 5 or 6 if you have cold hands. They have a non-insulated palm, which gives summer glove bar feel. They are not waterproof.
I also have the 100% hydromatic brisker glove, which is supposed to be water proof. They are not water proof in a downpour (not sure if it was because the water was pouring in the top? In any case, pretty good fit. More insulation than the plain brisker but the insulated palm gives a little less bar feel, but still decent. If you have cold hands, these would be good for most of BC coast winter. I have warm hands so use the plain brisker most of the time and pull out the hydromatic when the temperature drops.
+1 for the 100% Hydromatic Brisker. They’re my go to if it is colder than 5 degrees and wet. They are the most waterproof and warmest gloves I’ve found that offer enough dexterity to actually “feel” my bike (grips, brake levers, shifter). I used them today for a 2.5 hour ride that was mostly wet and around 1 degree. They stayed dry enough and my hands stayed reasonably warm. But I can actually ride with them. I also have the Fox Ranger Water glove (uninsulated) for warmer wet days. Not sure there is a truly waterproof glove out there that offers enough dexterity to ride hairy terrain. I’ve heard of people using latex gloves as a liner glove on nasty days. Maybe that’s something to think about.
