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 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!
