Speaking of gloves....

For you guys that don't have hand warmers for an option, what are using to keep the hands warm? The last couple pair I've bought haven't been good enough. I tried a pair of mittens and while they did work my hands sweat to much, so once you take them off there's no putting them back on.

I don't mind spending a little if they're quality.

a good pair of snowmobile type mitts with thin cheapo gloves inside works well for me.

My hands get cold very easily. I wore giant snowmobile mittens and on really cold days I used to put light finger gloves inside the mittens. I got tired of that and installed warmers. Now I just wear light leather finger gloves and have to turn the warmers off after a few minutes, then back on as needed.

Alpaca gloves unless it's really cold and then I break out the motorcycle gloves with heated fingers.
The battery lasts approx 4 hours and I rarely blow snow when it's that cold.

The alpaca gloves, hat, and socks keep my extremities nice and warm.

I believe I asked this same question here, last year.Brother,when you find the right gloves,let me know.I'm just barely into my fifties and already having circulation issues-so my hands get cold very easily.I'll wear mittens when I have to,but they suck for shoveling,IMO.

I use these gloves, and have been pleased with them. Not too warm, but warm enough for me. YMMV.

I get mine from harbor freight they're the blue insulated ones. They used to be called something else, but now they're called Handy I think.

Thanks guys, I think some light cotton gloves inside the mittens is the answer. I have some of the black jersey gloves but they are to bulky. I'll have to find something that fits tight and thin but still soak up the sweat. I need to work the key pad on my garage which is hard to do with any glove on!
