Best gloves for cold hands...

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I suffer fron really bad circulation, and my hands stop working even after an hour in a snowdome... I usually wear mitts with liners, but even they don't do the job when its really cold.

Can any of you reccomend gloves which will keep my fingers nice and toasty?
Cheers!

OK I give everyone permission to use one of my new gloves to slap me round the face for not searching properly....

george_1,

If you have to wear mitts with liners..... Shocked
mitts are much warmer than gloves and way too warm for me

I am not sure a simple warm glove will do the trick Puzzled

george_1, I'll repeat Foxy's usual sound advice on this subject re wearing a hat or helmet (if you don't already) as a lot of heat is lost through your head - which I think wouldn't help your hands. Do your feet also get cold?

If you're not cold generally & it's just your hands that's the problem then I'd seek a medical opinion as Xscape isn't really cold at all at -1/-2C.

george_1, echo spyderjon, wear a hat . . . it makes a big difference

Are you very slim or do you have a clinical circulation condition? There are a couple of manufacturers that make gloves with pockets for the 'snap' type saline warming packs or the chemical type warmers. But firstly, don't buy too close or tight fitting gloves. You need a 'little' bit of loose space for the air to warm up and be able to stay in the glove and not just transfer heat out to the glove surface. tight clothing will expel warm air through seams and joints while you move . . . and then you have to re-heat the air that's drawn in by the bellows effect of movement . . . it is a significant factor . . . as I learnt on my old A65L crossing the Pennines and back to college in Winter.

I dont get cold feet as much as I get cold hands, its just really uncomfortable, I will go see the doctor and see if he can suggest anything to help my circulation.

I get it alot, riding my bike in the winter too even when the temp is above 0C I get cold hands and they go numb and take ages to get the feeling back.

I suppose I shall await the outcome of a chat with a doctor until I decide on what gloves to get...

Taking a garlic capsule everyday might be beneficial, as it is supposed to increase circulation. See what your doc says, then go out and buy the best Hestra gloves you can find, make sure they are a little on the large side, it will be warmer. Agree with the suggestions above about hat's and helmet's.
