I have been riding around in the 10 degree gloves by SSG and I love them. I actually like that they are a bit thick and "dampen" the feel, mainly because it encourages me to ride with my back and elbows holistically instead of fiddling about with the fingers and wrists.
Also, not being completely frozen doesn't hurt.
I use these for trail riding on cold days, or arena riding on REALLY cold days. They are grippy, but do dampen the feel a bit.
For regular colder-weather riding, I use SSG Windstoppers. They are NOT waterproof, though. (I have some sort of waterproof gloves, or wear open-finger wool gloves over them when it's wet.)
Summer, I use crochet gloves in various colors.

My favorite are the SSG All Weather gloves. I have the silk inserts that go with them for winter. They've got good grip and aren't too bulky, although in very cold weather (below 30) my fingers sometimes get cold.
I like the SSG All Weather. They are relatively cheap ($20) so for someone like me that loses things they work well enough and I don't stress over them. I am looking for a glove to use in colder weather though and thought about trying their winter version.
Right now, I am living in a combination of the new Back on Track ceramic glove liners and the SSG 10 Below gloves. It's amazing - I suffer from Reynaud's and used to have to stop my lesson after about 20 minutes to use my hand warmers, but after getting those glove liners my hands actually sweat rather than lose circulation.
You're going to laugh. My FAVORITE gloves are leather palm gardening gloves that cost $7.99 at my local grocery store. I buy a pair every spring. The back of the gloves are canvass so they breath in the summer heat. They have a velcro tab at the wrist. They quickly mold to my hand shape and fit, well, like a glove. I'd show in them too but they don't come in white - just nice shades of blue, green, and lavender. Once I've got a summer season of wear on them, they move on to be my actual gardening gloves.
