I got a pair of wool mittens from woolrich, the kind where the top folds back to expose the fingers. They are real warm and yet allow good finger use in about a second. I take along those air activiated heater packs, they fit right in the mitten top and do wonders at warming up my hands. Haven't tried them yet with extreme cold but down to about zero it has worked good for me.

You have gotten some pretty good suggestions, I have tested then for my self and can atest to the reliability.

I have also place latex glove on before putting on my regular gloves, it helps with the exteame wind and keeping water out.

Good luck.

I have found the chemical hand warmers work best for me.

Rusty: I've been in the ski business for about 20 years, and have a bit of experience with cold. The guys have made some great suggestions. Let me make a couple that are a bit different. If you have a problem with clammy (damp) hands or feet. A wee dusting with plain old corn starch will help dry out your appendages, and as we all know: Drier is warmer. Silk or polypropylene glove or sock liners will help wick moisture away from the skin producing the same effect. If you are not in a scent sensitive situation, using a cream like Icy Hot, Bengay, etc. will dialate the blood vessels and improve warm blood flow to these areas. Just make sure that the cream is well absorbed before putting on gloves or socks. ( and if you have to pee, FOR GOD'S SAKE: LEAVE YOUR GLOVES ON!

In the same boat. The mitts that fold back for the fingers are the way to go. Definitely will gry beans' suggestions tho.

In good ol Mississippi I guess it doesn't get to what most of you call extreme cold. Extreme for here is teens. very extreme is single digits. That only happens once every 10 years. However, I have those fold back fleece mittens and like them. Most of the time I use a pair of football receivers gloves that are tacky and one of the hand muff around my waist.
