Seeking your recommendations, s.v.p. Warmth, reasonable finger dexterity and durable enough for actual outdoor use (and not just for looking sharp while taking transit to and fro), bonus if they're under $50.
Isotoner make fashion gloves. I'm seeking utilitarian.
SDB, do you really find them to be warm enough for temperatures like we've had in the past week? My hands get cold, easily. Ideally, I'd like to find a pair that I can wear in the city, but that also will serve my needs when out camping/hiking, which means staying warm and dry when handling things like wood or tools.
5 finger gloves do not cut it... Having been thru 40+ years of winter my hands always ended up cold... Mitts are the best as your 4 fingers generate warmth and if the thumb gets cold slip it in with the fingers... Sure they are not as stylish and you lose dexterity but keepong warm is the goal...
Those are pretty much the gloves I bought. Rated to minus 25 but if I'm going to out in that cold for extended periods I have a pair of old work gloves with a felt liner and I add in a thin pair of light wool running gloves. Best combination I have found.
I work in minus forty in the oilfield, and luckily my employer gives us gloves for dealing with just about anything. From chemicals to liquid nitrogen and just regular nice warm stylish gloves, Watson's has it.
