Folks,

Despite substantial expenditure, I am still without acceptable winter gloves. By "winter gloves", I mean waterproof gloves suitable for work such as snow shoveling & operating the snow blower. I've tried Glacier Gloves which made my hands colder. Sealskins did the same thing, and they also leaked in between the fingers. I don't mdin paying for quality, but just can't seem to find anything. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.


Just imagine how happy you would be if you lost everything you have in life and then suddenly got it back

Get a good pair of GoreTex thinsulate gloves from Cabelas, BPS, or anywhere else. I've used them snowblowing years back and now use them when plowing on the ATV.

I would recommend warm gloves, that way, you fingers will stay warm. Warm gloves won't keep you hands warm if you fill them with water.

i know you said gloves, but have you tried burton mittens? I use them for snowboarding and for everyday tasks like shoveling and plowing. Super warm and not as limiting as people think.
or try spyder gloves.

Best winter gloves evar.
(Kincos insulated)

There's a reason half the ski patrol population in the world uses them. :)


The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
