Default full-fingered gloves, anyone?

This morning's commute was just cold enough to make me wish I had a pair of gloves... but not cold enough to make me don the irritatingly thick and clumsy full-on-midwestern-winter type.

Can someone recommend a comfy, relatively thin full fingered glove for riding / commuting around Portland?

I use some full-finger Pearl Izumi gloves: http://www.pearlizumi.com/product.ph...duct_id=793170

It's basically summer thickness front and back, but just full fingered.

My hands were a little cold this morning, but once I warmed up, so did they. Which I guess is the best one can hope for and sufficient for a recommendation.

I will say, 5+ degrees colder and I expect I'd be thinking about a different glove.

I'm loving the Gore Wind Tex long fingered gloves I purchased at the Bike Gallery. In winter temps I wear Pearl Izumi Inferno's ( I think that's the name they are 1/2 lobster claw and 1/2 fingered for easy shifting of a road bike. )

I have a pair of Novara brand full-fingered cycling gloves I got at REI last year for less that $20.00.

They're perfect for those days that are too chilly for the regular gloves, but not cold enough for the serious cold-weather golves.

those are the same gloves i wear during the in-between temperatures of cold and colder (ie 35-45f). They work quite well.
