After 3 snows already this year my gloves weren't doing it anymore.

My hands were never really the problem, my fingers were.

The worst weather conditions I’m usually ever in is 5 and wind blowing

I looked all over this forum and on the net and came to the conclusion that I might be happier with mittens.

Thinking mittens will help with my fingers being as cold as they got.

After some research and reading I decided on Burton as the brand.

I got some Burton Gore-tex mittens.

Hope these are good and do the job. About wear and tear, I've never had an issue with palms on
on my gloves wearing out.

I guess I'll see. I went with a local store with a good return policy in case they don't work out.

Yea, I went with Dicks to buy because they matched a lower price I found at Burton.com and I was able to use a $10 reward coupon I got for signing up for emails, so the price was very reasonable. Also they are the only place close to me that sells these.

i have been pretty happy with some plain lined work gloves that i usually pick up on sale for about $5/set. keep my hands warm as long as they are on and i do way more snow blowing every winter than i should.

Have always used mittens when the temperature is below -18C (0F).

When I used to ride a motorcycle in colder months, mittens worked better for me than gloves.

It should have clicked earlier when using my snowblower with colder fingers, that’s part of the reason I finally got mittens.

I have a pair of shearling lined leather ski mitts that have individual finger slots inside them that are the warmest I've ever owned. Have had them over 50 years! Sometimes when it gets below 0F my thumbs would get cold, though, so I'd back them out and tuck them in my palms to warm up with the rest of the gang...

Those sound awesome! To have them that long is astonishing. That says a lot about the quality of things made back then

Burton makes good stuff. Hope they work well for you! I use these Kombi mittens. All leather and down filled. My Dad bought them for me in 1976 for $30. Best mittens I’ve ever owned.

This post reminded me I wanted to replace my gloves with mittens this year, going to try a set of Carhartts, tired of the cold fingers.
