Warm gloves - before my fingers fall off!

My circulation is a bit crap - not full raynauds but getting there.

I need warm gloves, my fingers were white and painful after a walk today.

What do you recommend?

Have you tried the hand warmers you can slip into gloves? I use them a lot (buy loads when they are reduced in spring!) the chemical ones last 8 hours or so or you can get the reusable ones which last an hour or so

Only leather gloves, or ski gauntlets are warm enough for me! No Reynaud's, but I'm always freezing.
Micro- can you get warmers that don't need to be boiled to reset?

Good question about the hand warmers - re boiling them is too much of a faff!

I have a range - thin glove in bigger thinsulate ski glove thing -so 2 sets of gloves. But my hands are not at all dexterous with these on.

SealSkinz (not real seal!) for if I might get wet, or be in the wind.

Silk glove liner underneath cashmere thick glove for if I need to look smartish.

Mittens are warmer than gloves too. But I don't have any mittens. And sheepskin is meant to be v warm - but I don't wear (real) skin.

I bought lambskin gloves in the John Lewis summer sale - they are super-cosy, but very expensive at full price.

Leather lined gloves by Hestra. Cost an arm and a leg but worth it.

Ski mittens from Aldi.

I also have hand warmers disposable for v cold days.

I got some amazing Sealskins in Millets sale 2 days ago. At £40 they were too pricey, but reduced to £28 and with my birthday on the horizon it was doable. And now my hands are toasty and dry - just in time judging by the weather forecast!

These are great I work outside a lot and they stay warm for hours, you just take them out of the packet and shake them to activate. Not a cheap option though so I only use them on really cold days. I also wear sheepskin mittens, much warmer than gloves.

I've got ski mittens from Decathlon.

Yes, I use disposable ones (called hot hands) when I have arthritis in my hands. They're a £1 a pair on amazon at the moment. They last so much longer than the reusable ones and are much warmer too.

sheepskin mittens - you can get some good ones on ebay

You need leather or proper wool. Seasalt do some nice wool ones, or, if you have less than tiny hands, some of the men's ones from fatface are wool and definitely not big man sized - the ones I bought in the sale for DS1 last year (and he has since grown out of) are only slightly big on me.

Obviously, ski gloves are very warm, but they have to come off when you even want to rummage in your pocket for yet another tissue, which sort of defeats the object. Synthetic gloves also give me horrific dermatitis, which rules them out for me!

When it gets really cold I wear regular wool gloves with mittens on top. I've tried leather, sheepskin, wool, possum and ski gloves and nothing works as well as wearing 2 pairs.
