Hey,
I'm looking for some "tried and tested" advice on cold weather gloves.

*They need t be gloves, not mits.
*Be reasonably warm around '0 degrees.

Preferably
*They can not be to bulky to operate a vehicle (farm, street or snow thrower).
*Rugged enough to handle outdoor use.

Hopefully
*(Well) Under $100!

I'm really looking for people that can recommend from first hand knowledge, not website reviews.

So what say you, ATS?
Any recommendations?
Thanks in advance!

Maybe not what you are looking for but I use two pairs of normal woolen gloves but I put a pair of latex gloves over the first pair and then put the other pair over them so They are water proof.
Cheap and cheerful but I never get cold hands with these.

Get a pair of snowmobile gloves, that is what I use.
They will cover up to your elbows, and thinsilated for warmth.

I am a caretaker for a large apartment complex and I have to snowblow, shovel and salt a huge area of sidewalks and entryways, and so far, that is the only type of glove I have found that works in up to -20f.

At 0, they should be plenty fine although if you are using a shovel, the seams will rip, mine did, but the gloves still keep me warm. Without them, last year I would of probably lost my fingers with it being as cold as it was, and now this year we are going through another super cold snap of -20's and -50 windchills, but the gloves, even torn, keep me warmer than the several other pairs of gloves I have tried.

My wife got them at Walmart for $20.

Go to a truck stop, hardware store, or auto supply shop. They sell gloves for cold weather that you can still move in that also have a rubber grip. They are designed for working and run anywhere from 8 to 15 bucks. Unless you get fancy and buy some from carhartt.

Thank you,
I'm really looking for a solution, not a specific product.
What do you mean by latex gloves?

Can't go wrong with something gortex on the inside and wool on the outside.
Wool holds its heat 80% even when wet.
Gortex is waterproof and breathable,they are a tad pricey though for the good ones.
So 2 pairs really that you can modify as needed weatherwise.


For real real cold weather I have arctic gloves....might need them Thursday,its gonna be 30 below before windchill.

Look into ssg 10 below line. I have a pair that works good, but I haven't test at below zero. I'm in north Georgia and we do good to get to 20f above.

Or can be like my dad a pair of leather work gloves over a Pair of wool mil-surp glove.

That's what I'm talking about!
Snow blow, shovel, salt and drive some equipment.
I'm dwelling in N. Wisconsin, and have yet to find something that works for me.

Thank you!

No problem.
It took me a few years of trying out gloves before I found these.

I'm in Northern Minnesota, so I can relate...lol

I might have to try those myself.
The gloves I got are only going to last for this winter, and then I am pretty sure they will be dead.

Even after a year of wear they are still like brand new.. I just donate them to Goodwill so another, less fortunate, can enjoy them as well as I do..

I'm a fan of Carhartt for outer gear, bibs and such, however even Carhartt has failed me as far as hands.
I have several pair, maybe I bought the wrong pair.

Well in zero degrees I can work outside all day without them being Alaskan breed.

If your looking for something to no stick to metal and rip your skin of try leather work gloves with a cotton lining.

If your looking for something cheap go to the local hardware store.

If you want great outdoors gloves of any sort. You will have to pay more than an$100, sorry. That's the way it is


When I work in the oil fields of Alaskan north, I use green apes

I'm probably not one to take glove advice from. Any pair of gloves I use in the woods usually do not last more than a month. my snowmachine and boarding gloves are $300+ but Ive had them for 4 years and good to -60 degrees

Throw away gloves made for cooking or cleaning etc...thinner than rubber gloves.
Made mostly with vinyl due to people being allergic to latex.

Ive been using a pair of snow mobile gloves with a pair of army issued wool inserts for last 5 or 6 years with no issues.

Gloves are coldwave snow mobile gloves and inserts are 2-3 bucks at army surplus
