What gloves do you wear to keep your fingers warm in the winter but allow decent dexterity with the camera controls?

Shot a football game that was pretty cold this season. Wished I had gloves as my hands were becoming slow on the controls due to cold. The best thing I can think of are FootJoy golf gloves for each hand. Very soft with a somewhat spongey feel/grip (for the thickness of the leather) with excellent finger fit.

I suggested golf gloves to my wife who delivers mail out of a truck to keep her hand from freezing in the winter. She loves them and wouldn't deliver without them. They fit so well that she can sort and flip though mail easily because of the clean fit on the fingers.

These two. The first is Lowepro, they look flat but comform to your fingers like a second skin. Rubber nubs grip the camera and allow small button operation easily.

The other is Aquatech for colder days, which have a hole in the neoprene of the thumb and forefinger so you can poke out the tips of those fingers. Actually very cool.

The Lowepro is from Amazon, the Aquatech at B&H.

Just saying. As most would easy about simple question, Google it or search first instead of repeating history. It's not like it's an irrelevant to bring back that thread either like some thread 2yrs old where someone revives it to answer a question.

Yeesh, wouldn't it be easier to search? :rolleyes:

Then post here with all the other given suggestions so old gloves aren't forgotten. ;)

Well, the Aquatechs above are new this year at B&H, and if it hadn't been for this thread, I wouldn't have thought to post it.

I have an older pair of I believe these Marmot Evolution gloves. Fit tightly to my hands, pretty much waterproof, still retain dexterity, enough that I can type at my normal speed on a laptop wearing them. Fantastic gloves (actually, everything marmot makes is fantastic)

I like mittens that peel back to expose the fingers!

If it's REALLY cold put the Lowepro gloves under the mittens.

_aravena....with a join date of 2007 and almost 11,000 posts, you might want to get back to the basics. I will post a link to some valuable reading information.

A good idea is to wear a pair of liner, close fitting gloves under your primary ones, so that "delicate" or technical tasks can be managed easier by removing the outer warmer glove with out exposing your skin to the cold.

I've tried on the Lowepro gloves, their nearly perfect for feeling and dexterity, but a bit expensive for me so I didn’t buy them.
