    Ariat® Insulated Tek Grip Gloves is rated 4.5309 out of 5 by 81.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for 30 degree riding Even after using the Ariat sizing guide, sized up to 7.5 so it was not TOO snug. Windproof backing and soft-suede like palm/fingers. Hands were warm in 30 degree with wind and the feel was great with the reins.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winter gloves you can WORK in. I work for a cutting horse trainer, he gives me a hard time because I were gloves everyday, all year. These gloves are Very Durable. This is the second winter for this pair. I feed, clean stalls, drag hoses, groom, saddle, lope horses, EVERYTHING! I start wearing them at about 45 degrees, so they get used a LOT. These gloves have actually lasted longer than some of my leather ones. I like that they come in numbered and half sizes. ( S M L, like most winter glove sizes, doesn't give a close enough fit.) I will continue to buy these gloves as long as they continue to be made.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Non-Bulky Gloves These gloves fit great and really keep your hands warm. I was looking for gloves that were not bulky and these are perfect for most chores and riding. They are constructed very well and I expect them to hold up for quite some time.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice Gloves - until the seams give out I was happy with these gloves at first - comfortable and warm but still thin enough that you can ride in them. I was even thinking about getting another pair just in case they went off the market, since it's hard to find that combination of qualities in winter gloves, BUT then after 2 months of use, the seams at the fingertips on the left glove gave out and now I have holes on the tips of two fingers. Sigh. Going to give the Rockle polarfleece gloves a try now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Warm I love these gloves! The winters in Wisconsin vary from 40 to -15 in a week so these gloves keep my hands warm in any temperature without fail.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No better riding gloves anywhere I buy these every winter and give as gifts. There are no warmer gloves that you can actually ride in that are this thin. I've tried them all. They wash up beautifully.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good winter gloves These gloves are great. They fit well and feel very warm. Havent had them a whole winter yet so I cannot vouch for their durability yet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from comfortable gloves I bought these gloves for winter riding. I bought my usual size. At first I thought that they would be too small because putting them on was like putting on a pair of breeches - but once on, they are very flexible. I can actually unbuckle blankets and tighten my billets and put on my bridle with them on. Are they really warm?? Well, they ARE gloves, so not as warm as mittens, but way more useful.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fingers not too warm After my first ride I was disappointed with these gloves. My fingers were very cold. I usually wear a womans 8 in other Ariat gloves, but in this glove the fingers were too snug to keep my fingers warm. Length of fingers was too long, and I have to remove gloves to buckle/adjust tack, etc. Maybe they will work for winter showing if I put them on last minute. Had SSG Winter Training Gloves last year, and even though they are bulky I wish I had gotten another pair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite gloves My favorite gloves! They work well for more than just riding. I wear them for all my outdoor chorse. They wash well also. I think they run a touch large so order .5 smaller than you think you'll need.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gloves! I've been looking for real winter gloves since the last gloves I bought that claimed to be "winter" gloves were really not at all.I opened these out of the box and wore them outside in the snow immediately. They held up very well in the cold but lately I've found they keep my hands warmer if I put them on while I'm inside then wait about 2 minutes before going out because once or twice my fingers have gotten cold wearing them but I suppose not everything's perfect!It's very nice Ariat quality and the fit is very good I have long fingers and these fit very well with a little bit of room at the tips of my fingers

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite winter glove I would recommend ordering a half a size smaller than your current glove size. They run a little bigger than most gloves.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100% Worth it! i love these! im in West Virginia, and it gets really cold but riding in these gloves are perfect! They fit amazingly, and i can still ride with out feeling like i have massive gloves on my hands. i have recommended they to many people and they like them just as much.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best winter gloves ever This is my second pair as I love them so much. They are the only winter gloves I like and although I am currently living in Texas, I had my first pair while living in Scotland. Most are too thick to feel the reins effectively or not warm enough but these are fantastic on both counts. My first pair wore through at the end of one finger but I do have rather long nails, at least by horsey standards!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Warm! These gloves have kept my hands nice and warm. They are bulkier that my leather riding gloves, so that took a couple of rides to get used to them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Winter Gloves for Riding! LOVE these gloves! I am an all time critic when it comes to being warm when I ride in the winter, which I do alot. I live in upper michigan so the winters can be brutal. These gloves always keep me warm and are very easy to grip maneuver my reins. I tell everyone about them. I wish I wouldn't keep losing them, because I have had to buy a few pair now. I have tried others...and none have warmth and refined style like these for riding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Wonderful The Ariat Insulated Tek Grip Gloves are very warm on cold, chilly days! They have a wonderful fit and are easy and comfortable when holding the reins without any compromise in feel. They are also great for working around the barn...very durable! I highly reccomend them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm gloves These gloves seem to fit bigger than the non-insulated gloves. I would recommend ordering half a size smaller than other Ariat gloves.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Size is True, Grips Well I have ridden twice with these gloves. I have a light hand when riding but I felt no problems in gripping the reins. They were very warm and I was glad to have bought a pair. They are good material that suggests I will be able to use these for many winters. My toes and fingers always go cold. My fingers were still a little cold but I don't think man kind makes a glove to keep my hands 100% warm.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Machine Washable! The best feature of these loves is that they wash up well. I have found that they wear more than others but have the best weight/mobility ratio. I had to size up one size from my Roeckls or SSGs.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so good Althought the quality seems good, and the size was correct, they were uncomfortable and I couldn't move my fingers well enough to want to use them for riding, so returned them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice winter riding glove I do like these gloves for winter riding as they provide excellent grip and flexibility, while being warmer than most. For me, though, they just aren't warm enough for barn chores when temps drop below 20 degrees or so. Am still looking for that perfect winter glove to do it all, I guess.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Warm but not effective The Ariat insulated gloves are very warm in the cold air. However, I do not have any feel with the reins when riding. The gloves just do not allow me to feel horse in my hands. I will keep the gloves as they are great to wear for around the farm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as Described! These gloved are prefect and are exactly what I was looking for - great grip, warm, and yet still slim and does not get in the way of your riding.I recommend this to anybody in cold winter climates!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great riding gloves I bought my first pair of these gloves several years ago. I wear them riding/at the barn 6 months out of the year and they are still in great condition. I ordered a second pair as back-up when I thought I had lost one of my original gloves. My only suggested improvement would be to have them a little longer in the wrist. Size runs a little small.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish They Came in Size 6 I have the Ariat Tek Grip (non-insulated) gloves and love them. They are comfy, have a "barely there" feel with the reins, and hold up well. I ordered the insulated gloves for the winter, and was pleased to see that they are the same quality and toasty warm without the bulk of other winter riding gloves. My only complaint is that SmartPak does not carry these gloves in size 6 (and perhaps Ariat does not make the insulated gloves in this size). The 6.5 gloves are a tad big, but I am keeping them anyway. My warm fingers are sure to thank me!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful!!! I've had a pair of Ariat Insulated Tek Grip Gloves for 3 years now, and they're wonderful! They've started to wear down where they come in continuous contact with the reins, and I can see how someone who rides more than 4 horses a day might not get more than 1 winter's use out of them, but I think they're great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Answer to the finger part... I really like these gloves. Living in Massachusetts, winter riding can be a real bummer when you can't feel your fingers or toes. These gloves are definitely the answer to the finger part. AND, they are not so thick that you lose your feel. I was on the fence when looking at them as to if the thickness would bother me, but no, they really are perfect!

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
