    Hi, so i really suffer from cold hands, especially at this time of the year! I've tried loads of different gloves but never found any that constantly keep my hands warm. So i was wondering what people recommended? Can either be a glove or mitten and preferably not too expensive and suitable for the British climate!

    Do you need fingers / dexterity? If not, consider getting a pair of mittens rather than gloves since they're warmer. The Montane Extreme and Resolute mitts are both very warm!

    And if you wear mittens, you can always wear a pair of thin or liner gloves in them in case you do need a finger and thumb to do something!

    The ME Randonee gloves are pretty warm - like a super deluxe glove version of a Buffalo Mitt... on steroids!

    Just purchased some BD ascent Soloists from TK Max for £35 with removable liner glove supposed to be rated to -9C. If you need gloves/mittens for colder than that then probably better with mittens, unless as Kate mentions dexterity is important.



    Also you say you have not found a pair that keep your hands warm constantly !Whyconstantly what changes ? do they get wet is it a change in activity level etc?

    I have the same problem and find a combination of Buffalo mitts and a pair of these work really well.http://www.amazon.co.uk/product-revi...owViewpoints=1

    You would think that full finger liners would be warmer but they are not - at least for me. Worth a try for £9.99.

    Definitely mitts - they've got less surface area to lose heat through and are a more efficient way of trapping heat. I veered between Dachsteins and Buffalo Mitt's and ended up with the Dachsteins as they're supposedly a bit warmer (whereas the Buffalo's perform better when wet - but I use a carry a waterproof outer mitt anyway.) Thin liner glove like the Ussen Flight Glove underneath (nice long cuff) for dexterity when needed and they've done the job nicely in the closest we've had to cold so far.

    I gather this is your own shop on Aliexpress.

    I'm currently experimenting with Blazewear heated liner gloves underneath Buffalo mitts. So far I'm pleased, but yet to be out in really cold conditions to give them a thorough workout. I think the ability to turn on real heat in my fingers when on top of a fell in midwinter will be wonderful. Keeping warm hands uphill is generally doable with exercise, but it's those moments when you stop or start going downhill when there's less cardiovascular work going on, and less heat to the fingers.
