female GF needs new gloves - suggestions?

She is constantly cold so the warmer the better. She would prefer to not have mittens, and I would prefer to not spend a lot of money buying them

Any suggestions, and places to buy cheaply would be helpful.

My girlfriends 686 gloves couldn't keep her fingers warm so I just picked up the Celtek Hello Operator gloves. Its a compromise between gloves and mitts so I'm not sure how your girl will feel about that, but just wearing one of each glove on her hands around the house, the Celtek was ALOT warmer. Good luck on your search

Hello Operator

I use Mitts on cold days gloves on warm... havent really found a pair of gloves that do the trick on days when your face feels like falling off.. my pow mitts actually make my hands sweat theyre so warm sometimes. Got them on clearence for $35... Northface gloves run super warm too.. but are expensive if they arent on sale.

Just gunna have to keep looking up sales on the internet and reading reviews. Thats what I did. Its hard to find gloves at a decent price these days that actually work well.

Yeah I know what you mean. Luckily I got a great pair of dakines for myself for $30. I should have bought two pair. I guess I'll just buy her a pair of mitts, or those 3 finger gloves for the cold days and she can use the shitty ones from REI for the warmer days.

I'm basically just trying to get warm enough gear for her for the east coast meet. It doesn't really get that cold here in PA central.

I got these for X-Mas...work well so far. They have a pocket on top for a hand warmer. I've got enough room in them to wear a liner underneath if need be.

I got a pair of Head gloves from Costco that work really well for 19.99. Like others have said, in really cold conditions she will need mitts if staying warm is the #1 priority.

I wish it was just cold conditions she was cold in. She wears a thermal, long sleeve shirt, UA cold gear fleese, jacket liner and then the jacket and is cold in 20 degree weather. It's bad.

Get some Level fly gloves or superpipe gloves. They are super warm and have wrist guards built in. My son wears them, My wife has spyder gloves which are warm too. I have dakine gloves, they are warm also, I sweat in them for sure, my son sweats in his. My wife is warm in hers all day without problems. We ride in temps down to -20 without problems so far. I will be getting my wife and I both the level brand gloves soon for the extra protection of wrist guards.

Also, my wife is cold when the house is below 70. She wears about 6 layers on the average day of snowboarding in 10-25 F temps....
