I had an old pair of Fox Sidewinders from 02-03....that model, those were great. Lasted me 2 years of hard riding.....now I have raceface. Comfier, but the RF ones arent lasting nearly as long.....and are WAY hotter.

Theres plenty.
Fox has their XC gloves, Giant bicyles. I personally like the TLD(troy lee desgins) XC glove, and my newest gloves are the new Pearl Izumi Gel lites, pricey but very light!
Usually, the gloves with not much padding nor much in the way of decorations or 'protection' are going to be the best for ventilation....
I'd say look into the PI gloves, if they cost to much then go with the Fox xc gloves(not sure what they are called).

PI Gel Lite or Troy Lee Designs XC gloves.
I have a pair of each that I alternate.
Nice and cool on my hands in sunny, hot Queensland Australia.

Fox Incline are also good gloves. No rubber pieces sewn onto them so they're well ventilated.

I ride the Specialized Ridge Long. They are pretty basic with mesh back and Clarino palms. It's about as good as it's going to get. They are about $20 at your local Special Ed dealer.

garneau

louis garneau ergo air gloves are the best i have used. i have had them for 3 years of hard use (both road and mt the last year) and it took a hard road crash to rip one of the palms open. my wife sowed them and now they are running strong again. performance carries them and if mine ever die, i will buy another pair :D

Even though the LG gloves have been very comfortable and cool, I haven't had any luck with durability.

My first pair lasted about 1 year. Not that good if you consider that I have quite a few pairs of gloves and wore the LG's about once per week.

I recently bought another pair. The palm seperated from the wrist after 2 rides. That's pretty crummy for $40 gloves.

Troy Lee Designs XC gloves. I swear by them and have converted all of my friends. They are light, offer good protection (believe me, I've used it!), cool, excellent bar/lever feel, etc. These are the best gloves I've come across. You can get them at JensonUSA for usually under $20. Give'em a try!

Any full fingered glove is going to be hot, but the benefits outweight the negatives. I use them whatever the temp, up to and past 100°

Motorcross gloves are pretty much identical to most "mountain bike" gloves and can be had quite cheaper, and many times they last better.

motorcycle stuff. For gloves I like shift and thor, they all offer 3 different price points so you have to pick a price but I think they both make great gloves that cost less than 20.00 .

I got tired of paying $20-30 for long fingered bike gloves at a bike shop. You can get equivalent gloves for a lot less at a motorcycle shop, at least around here. I don't know the model names of the gloves I've been wearing, but MSR, Thor, Answer and O'Neal all make great lightweight gloves, as well as heavier ones for colder weather.

Look in BMX shops, too.

Fox Incline is very light but too thin the padding, as I have laid my palms on cactus one time, I trust Troy Lee Design XC the best for the adequate padding and good ventilation, when I go to rougher trail, I use 661 MTX which is a beefier but amazingly breathable gloves. I think all depends on your comfort level of protection and padding thickness.
