My hands get really cold. I currently have a couple of pairs of Army surplus mitts. When it gets really cold, I put on fine woollen gloves underneath the mitts. Secondly, I put on a warmer hat. Regards JCS

Trouble is none will do all the jobs.

If you want to keep your hands warm and dry then a Gotex pair of sking gloves/mitts are the best Only buy gortex, everything else will leak. Mine work at -30c ontop of some mountains in Switzerland.

I have a pair of cammo neoprene gloves with fold back fingers which are good, available in most fishing tackle shops. Wear them when lamping at night particular when using hand held lamp from a moving vechicle.

Couple of years ago I read a review in gun mart for leather waterproof gloves. Purchased a pair for my dad who swears by them. Can't remember the maker/supplier.

Dont like woolen fingerless mitts as seem to attract every bramble/briar in area.

surplus and adventure have some great ex dutch army mitts for £7. perfect to just slip off before taking a shot. I like to wear the fingerless wool barbour gloves in general, and these slip nicely into the mitts too if you require more layering and not to have your hands completely expose once you remove the mitts.

Do you have the neoprene ones or the ones in the link above your post?

Those are the ones my girlfriend got me for my birthday, I really like them and would rate them highly.

Army leather combat gloves (the ones with the buckle) take some beating mind but I don't know where you'd fing them and how much they'd cost. Before I left the services they had changed to a new style gloves and they were pretty pants.

+1 for MacWet. I usually put a pair of leather gardening gloves over the top of mine to protect them. Also find wet cold skin seems toe damage more easily. I take the leather ones off when I am in a sort of position to shoot.
