Default warmest gloves?

Price really isn't an issue, I'm tired of having cold frozen fingers all the time haha, I need to get some good gloves. Biggest factor is warmth really, also definitely waterproof as well, any suggestions? Thanks, apologies if this questions been asked already.

Mittens will keep your hands warm. I have a $40 pair of Burton mittens and my hands have never been cold wearing them.

I'm looking for something I can mess with my ipod while wearing. I hate taking off my gloves and putting them back on, I guess. So, preferably a brand shout out? Are oakley gloves good, I saw them at the mall, or what about dakine?

No idea about Oakley, Dakine is pretty run of the mill.

Look at Hestra, Black Diamond, and Marmot. Hestra is primarily a ski glove company but they make some heavy duty warm gloves. Well made too.


Black Diamond and Marmot are mountaineering companies. Their warm gloves are going to be as warm as you find them. The Black Diamond Guide glove is about as warm as they get. So you could give that one a try. They are not going to be cheap, but if cold hands are a problem, it's your best bet. Otherwise you are going to have to go with mitts.

I have some Dakine appollo gloves and they are real warm, pretty close to my mittens but they are expensive. Remember you get what you pay for.

I bought Burton Oven mitt's last year and they are almost too warm.

They come with a inner glove that you can put on inside of the mitt if you want, but I've found that the mitts are almost too warm even without the inner-glove and with the zipper open.

Definitely warm and they never get wet.


I know people around here don't like Burton... but I also saw in Transworld mag, that Burton has a liner glove (to wear inside another) that allows you to still use your mp3 player. Might want to check it out and I think it was about $20.

Yeah I would think you may want to look into a liner because pretty much any glove or mitten is going to make it very difficult to operate your mp3/ipod.

That warmest gloves are the ones you've put a hand warmer in.
