warm gloves?

im gonna buy some new gloves, the gloves i have now dont keep my hands warm at all. my hands get really cold really easily. my friends can have the same gloves as me and their hands are warm, but my hands are so cold i have to go inside. could anyone tell me a really warm glove. price isnt really an issue i just dont want to pay like 200 bones for a glove. 150 would be my limit. thanks in advance.

I paid $40 for my Dick's brand gloves and they keep me warm in near 0 temps. If you're having that big a problem, you might get some glove liners with aluminum weave in them. My wife likes hers and they cost about $12. For $150 dollars you could just buy some heated gloves or something. That's an insane glove budget.

I don't know anything about Dick's but I can tell you my new Rome gloves are pretty damn warm considering how lightweight they are. I got a proform deal on them too so I am very satisfied. My Burton gloves were good too until they got holes in the fingers and now they're a little brezzy. Those aluminum weave liners do work good too.

Never used Rome apparel, but their boards and bindings are the only ones I use. If their outerwear is as high quality as their boards, they would probably be a safe bet.

I have a pair of yet-to-be-installed Targas that I am pretty psyched on. I was really close to grabbing a Rome deck (anthem, agent, or postermania) until i started riding the never summer evo-R. What Rome do you ride?

I have an old '04 Anthem that I use for crud and an '07 Design that I ride in the west powder. I also have Rome Arsenals that I love. Like I said, I love their quality and their style and I'm sure their gloves are great. If they made orange, I'd give them a shot, hehe.

It's cool to see a VT company reaching you Westerners. I guess Burton kinda did that though too...and then some. I would totally grab a Rome, but damn NS'ers camber and rocker technology is some cutting edge stuff. I'm not sure I can go back to anything lesser.

this may sound funny, but i went out to k-mart and bought some random nameless brand gloves for 6 bucks and they worked perfectly for me in 6F. So price != quality

I don't think I've ever owned a pair of mittens that wasn't warm. So if nothing's working for ya, you can always take the style hit and go mittens
