While not designed for cycling in particular I use this style of mitt for March cycling when it is cold at the start and warms up during our 2-3 hour cycling ride. Suitable for light training rides only, I would not recommend them for anything else.
The Fox River Four Layer Glomit features premium heavy weight ragg wool which keeps your hands warm with a layered soft fleece interior and 3M Thinsulate insulation. There is even a deer leather palm for durability and grip, so important while cycling. The mitt hood slips back over fingers when the situation calls for added warmth and protection.
All Fox River-manufactured products are knit in the U.S.A. while some of the items have finishing work done at Fox River’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Fox River Caribe, in Haiti.
The anatomical fingerless glove converts to a mitten; two-way action split thumb. 85% wool, 15% nylon outer shell. 100% Thinsulate insulation in finger cap of mitten.

Fox River Four Layer Glomitt Reviews
While not really a cycling glove my friends and I love them particularly in the spring and fall but even on summer mornings. It can be a little cool when you start riding but as the day warms you just fold back the Velcro top. Actually most users find the Fox River Glomit quite cozy.
This reviewer remarked he bought these in preparation for the next cold blast that I’m sure is just around the corner. I like convertible mittens because it allows me the extra warmth but ability to free my fingers when necessary. I loved the rustic look of these and the leather patches certainly add a nice touch as well as durability. However, the gloves do run a bit big.
The picture doesn’t show it but there is a black square of Velcro on the back of the wrists to hold the top piece of mitten in place when not in use. While the Fox River Four Layer Glomit will not be for everybody do consider it for a light training or bicycle touring ride.
