Thread: Gloves

    Question Gloves

    Looking for recommendations for gloves - in 40* continuous (days) slow rain my hands get so wet and cold!
    What have you found to keep your hands dry and warm in above freezing rain?

    dont know whether they would work for you or not but i used marmot soft shell gloves w/ microfleece lining. my hands still got wet but they dried quickly, kept me warmer overall than my insulated gloves which i ended up sending home.

    I use these. Not very fashionable, but very light. Dick's Sporting Goods sell them and WalMart has a knock off version.

    Correction: they are these ones:

    Wool liner gloves with an OR rain shell.

    Versatile, light, and wool is warm when damp.

    Yeah, 40 and raining sucks, no doubt. The eVent overmitts from Mountain Laurel Designs, or the cuben ones from Zpacks will work. The Zpacks are lighter and don't need seam sealing. These keep my hands dry in cool rain, and with a light wool or fleece glove underneath they work in very cold weather too.

    My go to set up is fleece conversion mittens with poly glove liners and bread bags/or news paper bags with tiny rubber bands...has kept me toasty.

    I like the PossumDown gloves with the eVent or cuben overmitts recommended by BigCranky above. Light and versatile.
