Over the last year the Moto Gloves from Aether have been my go-to for fair-weather riding. They are not vented, they are not waterproof, they are not thermally insulated. They are a simple-looking, incredibly comfortable, well-built, and well-thought-out pair of gloves. There is a thin layer of padding over the knuckles that will keep them protected from impact, as well as a double layer of leather over the palm. There is a single Velcro closure with a large surface area, making it easy to clasp shut and stay shut, and a small elastic section in the wrist helps keep it tight while staying comfortable. I was surprised at how well my phone responded to my gloved hand as well; I could easily navigate music or maps with my iPhone mounted on the handlebars once the gloves warmed up a bit.
