Elkskin ropers. I've wanted a pair of those for awhile. I had a cheap pair of icon gloves which had neat rubberized bits on the fingertips and mean looking venting on the knuckles- but I've finally worn through them after two seasons.

I'll second the ropers. Not the most fashionable gloves out there (although you can get them in black) but the most unbelievably comfortable gloves I've ever owned, AND durable--I had over 60,000 miles on my first pair until I lost one. I'll wear them in temps down to almost freezing, at which point I switch to a more gauntletted glove.
Just my 2 cents.

I got the Joe Rocket "Highside" gloves before the Duluth Run, and they worked out really well. They provide reasonable protection from the cold and lots of protection in case I do their namesake. And for $50, they're not too expensive...
Still, wearing gloves called "highside" does rather seem to be tempting fate a little much...
