Third I would buy a good had of some sort. Most of your heat is lost through your head.
Agree on all fronts here... I bought the new fingerless Simms gloves, then exchanged for the mittens. If I were in really cold climate consistently, I might have kept the fingerless glove-onlys, they have a pocket for a hand warmer built into the palm. Bet you could fit one inside the glove/mitten too however
