After having come close to frostbite of the hands on several occasions (yeah, sometimes I'm a slow learner, or more likely just plain stubborn), I've been struggling to find really warm gloves. You'd think that, in Alaska, it would be easy to find warm gloves.
Not so much.
I can find all sorts of gloves, in different finishes, rated warm, warmer, or warmest, but none that have actually kept my fingers from getting cold. Until now.
One of our shopping stops this morning was at Lowe's, and there were several large bins of gloves next to the Christmas tree display. Because of the difficulty I mentioned, I always try every glove as it appears.
I finally found a pair that is not only the right size (extra large is often too snug), but was uncomfortably warm within seconds - and the heat was increasing until I pulled them off again. They're the waterproof Cold Weather gloves from Westchester Protective Gear, which I never heard of before today, with something called "Positherm"insulation ... whatever that is.
All I know is, they're really warm.
I look forward to finding out how well they work this winter, especially if/when we get our typical -20° or colder in January.
