There's a winter glove thread each cold season, but I think this is one of the best and the most varied that I've seen.

Just wondered how warm these are?

I think the description on the website if funny enough to order them

"Trying to operate a camera while wearing bulky gloves is like trying to shave a kitten with a lawnmower. Pow designed the Pho-Tog Glove with convertible fingers to help you get the shot without freezing your phalanges."

Re: small hands, although I plan to look at those North Face etips, I have used a pair of Mountain Hardware fleece liners for several years. They are a little heavier than p-pro or silk and are windproof. Thin enough for good dexterity. Plenty warm enough for Montana 90% of the time. The cold thing is all relative though, we were just in Florida and when it got to 65F we actually saw people in down coats!!!!

I got these (external link) from MEC (external link). Given the lightness of them they're surprisingly windproof, they do live up to the name Windstopper. I've had no problem getting around my 7D wearing them in temperatures as low as -10°C so far.

I use the mittens that can convert into fingerless gloves. They work really well in regards to turning dials and such and do a decent job at keeping your hand warm, but they leave your fingers cold. I've used other gloves before, and I've chose these because I have full control with my dials, which is important to me.

QUOTED IMAGE

I ran into a situation the other night where I went on a shoot at 12am without gloves in -22 C weather. I stopped shooting after 15 minutes.

I also have some with the thumb also being able to be exposed - called 'windshield' in the uk.
Went out early at -6C though windchill made it much colder. After about 10mins I couldn't move my fingers & they were white & very painful.

I am thinking of getting liners now also.

Make sure they're lined! Otherwise, they're quite useless in wind. I used mine in -20C (temp! not windchill) here in Iowa the other night. My fingers were raw after 20 minutes.

Well good luck to you for having such good resistance to cold. Where we live it usually doesn't get that cold, but when it does, these gloves are the difference between staying inside or going out shooting. I prefer the second option.

It's not a resistance to cold, it's understanding how to dress in the cold. If you keep your core properly warm, your appendages stay warm. For example, if you feet are getting cold it's often because you don't have proper insulation on your legs. Same goes for your hands and arms. In other words, it makes no sense to put on major gloves and then have improper insulation on your core and appendages. You hands will still get cold. But, if you are properly insulated, you can easily keep your hands and feet warm with reasonable gloves (or no gloves in light cold).

Also, having a proper hat (throwing fashion to the winds) is essential for keeping your hands and feet warm.

For example, this weekend when I was skiing in -29F weather, I had about 7 layers on including two that were down and thinsulate. I had serious head protection too. When I put on my mittens, I added those little heater packs. That created a different problem - my hands were actually too warm and I had to remove my gloves for the chairlift ride up each time to prevent sweating. I had bare hands at -29F and I was just fine for periods of 5-10 minutes. The reason for that is my core was nice and warm - warm meaning that if I was inside for 5 minutes with that much on and sealed up, I would start to sweat and be very uncomfortable. That is probably more insulation that most people would believe they need in those conditions. Dressed like this, I could easily stay out for 2-3 hours comfortably and longer without a problem.

The good news is that the clothing out now is so good that you don't need to feel like the Michelin man when you go out in it. It's all about proper laying. Most people, even those who think they know how to do it, don't do it properly - and they get cold hands and feet because their core is not warm enough.

J.

Just bought a pair of the Aquatech Sensory Gloves. THEY ARE AWESOME. I don't know how I've shot without these for so long. Great design of just being able to slip your fingers through the hole to shoot and then back in during downtime.

I bought the Aquatech glove last Sunday at B&H. I've yet to use them. But I was surprised that they are so lightweight. They look like winter gloves, yet weigh mere ounces.
