I use mittens so my fingers are together and not separated, never really have a problem! The mittens I use are the kind where you can fold the finger part back so you can use your fingers freely if needed! If it gets really cold I slip the hand warmers in the finger section! Works like a charm! I wouldn't use the hand warmer unless it really cold or your hands will sweat then you hating life!

What I do which may or may not work for you is the following:
Polyproplene (thin blue gloves - Helly Hansen)
Wool/thinsulate fingerless gloves with the flip over Mitt portion
Hot hands in the mitt portion ( It seems the length of use varies now greatly with the Hot Handsso I make sure I have enough to change every couple hours JIC)

If sitting in a blind the hand muff that attach around your waste(like you see football players wearing)also add extra warmth.

If extremely cold I break out the Trapper Mitts (some call them skidoo mitts - but the ones with the snot pad on the back). I wear the polyproplene under to prevent an skin contact on metal for obvious reasons at such temps.

If I am bow or gun hunting in extreme cold weather, I use fairly light weight gloves, and wear my hand muff with about 5 hand warmers shoved inside of it. Nice and toasty!!!

I use a very thin set of comfortable thinsulate gloves all year. When it is cold I'll put a warmer, oversized pair of wool mittens over them that fold over to expose fingers. A hand warmer pouch helps too.

Also, if you hands and feet are cold it could be a associated with not properly dressing the rest of your body. If your core temp drops, your body will start limiting blood flow to your arms and legs. Get a good hat, cover-all's, warm socks and boots. Another thing I do is bring empty carbs like M&M's. It's like throwing a log on the fire!

Good luck,
KP

I'm with moosehunter3o. I use the same thing when it is real cold -30. I usually hate wearing any type of gloves or mits at all but have been accustomed to using a thinsulate hand muff for the last couple of years. Putting in a warmer makes the muff real warm.
