Snow Belt guys: found any really warm gloves?
Posted by: Mr Downtown
Date: February 13, 2020 10:58AM
Chicago's had a mild winter this year, but I still find my hands get cold just walking a few blocks to the supermarket. I've tried a variety of advertised-as-warm gloves, but none are really warm enough for me once it drops below 20ºF. I don't remember this being such an issue when I was younger.

I've thought about mittens, but have never found any that weren't either merely sock weight or clumsy two-layer ski mittens. I'd like to at least be able to get my wallet out of my back pocket and wave it across the subway turnstile without having to unglove one hand.

Recommendations?

I like these as long as my hands are mostly in my pockets - [defeet.com]

But I think this is largely a personal choice. Mittens will be warmer but you might not like them. Maybe put the card inside the mitten so you can tap the mitten.

I like convertible mittens, where the mitten hood can be flipped up to reveal fingerless gloves. I've had several varieties over the years. Thumbs, if they aren't fingerless and often are not in these gloves, tend to wear out, though. Try a store that outfits hunters for more options.

Here's some examples:

You could simply put your transit card into an ID card holder, and wear it around your neck.

I would do one of the ones that goes across your arm. Some jackets have pockets there already for holding IDs.

I would look for quality gloves at places like these:

Duluth Trading

LL Bean

Also look at hunting outfitters. Hunters gloves tend to be very warm has they often sit in a tree stand which can get extremely cold.

You'll probably have to spend around $100 to get a nice pair of really warm gloves or mittens. Don't buy fleece, they just aren't as warm as the other styles.

I found these gloves [www.llbean.com] keep my hands warm enough down to about 5-10 F. Though since it is coming up on the end of the sales season for Winter clothing some sizes are no longer available.

The best thing you can do, if you still require some dexterity, is to use a glove liner. I prefer silk, but if you can't find that, pretty much any fabric will do. Top that with a decent gore-tex insulated glove and you should be fine.

I only buy gloves with Thinsulate or equivalent.

Make sure they physically fit well too.

It's a thermodynamic issue - keep the heat in!

I had a pair of mechanic's gloves for snowblowing that were Thinsulate insulated. For outdoor activities in sub zero temperatures I've got Dad's deerskin leather gauntlet mittens that go over thick wool gloves. Then again I have good circulation so my hands generally stay warm.

You need gloves when it drops below 20F? That’s springtime weather.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

If you think about it, anytime your hands get really cold while wearing gloves, what do you do? You pull your fingers out of the individual sleeves to gather the warmth in one area. So if this is really a problem for you you probably want ski mittens.

Mittens feel weird to me, but a few years ago, I was going skiing for several days in subzero temps, I spent way too much on some Black Diamond ski mittens. I rarely wear them, but I take care of them, and I'll probably have them fo 20 years.

You might not have any that are conveniently located, but I would just go to a sporting goods store like Dick's or Dunham's and try out a variety. You can get a good idea of how warm they are by trying them on.
