Looking for Winter Gloves

Postby clemk » Sat Jan 06, 2018 2:09 pm

Does anybody here have a favorite warm winter glove? While I'm working and doing something I get by okay. I need something that will keep fingertips warm while I'm shoveling or running the snowblower or driving. I had what I thought was a good insulated pair this morning. After half an hour my fingers were throbbing enough to drive me inside once I had done everything that would get me by just for today.

Got a pair of insulated carhartt gloves for Christmas. So far so good. Worn them hunting a couple times and been wearing them to work outside a little. Temps between 9F and 30F.

I have a couple pairs of mittens I like for cold weather, one of them leaves the ends of finger in the open, and an insultaed portion that lays back out of the way and folds over the fingers to cover them like a mitten when you want, and another pair that is a solid mitten with an index finger you can slide your finger out of and into the mitten when it is needed. Great hunting mitten. Another thing I do is wear a pair of leather gloves that are just big enough I can slide my hands in them with a pair of the brown Jersey gloves on. the 2 layers together really help.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

I don't have a ready answer to your question, however...

I have a pair of Gortex, Thinsulate lined gloves that come close, except when using the snowblower. I think the combination of vibration, pressure on the fingertips and the raised position of the arms fight against them working well in that application. They work well on the deer stand when I can withdraw the fingers into the palm area once in a while. I have been tempted to buy a pair of the heated gloves, but the reviews have kept me from doing it. I may try a pair of Gortex, Thinsulate lined mittens to see if that is any improvement. Maybe some of the UPers can chime in with comments.

Thanks everybody. I used to do like John, and brown jersey liners in work gloves did the trick. It doesn't seem to do it anymore. I try to tough it out, but I have to admit today beat me. My fingers got downright painful. Like everyplace else, it's cold. I'll look around for your suggestions . Thanks again!

I just bought a set of 'Berne' insulated winter gloves at Family Farm and Home for 'clean' activities (driving, snowplowing, shoveling, sledding with the kids). They have a heavy nylon exterior and are fleece lined inside plus a rubberized palm. They worked great during this cold snap we've had (-15 to 0 degrees for a week and a half). They appear to be well-made and cost me less than $20.

Thinsulate or Primaloft are probably the best insulation out there right now. Gloves or mittens with at least 150 grams should keep you warm of course more is better. Some samples below...

These look like a great deal on sale.
