Here where I live it doesn't get near as cold as other parts of the country, but my hands still get cold, so what kind of gloves you use to keep your hands from freezing that are thin enough for mowing tree pruning etc....

Real men don't wear gloves!

unless I'm out side actually working in the snow shovelling or something, I usually use the "machanics" gloves. Obviously every area has different temperatures and we all have different tollerances levels. As far as the best gloves go I think we would all agree the best type of gloves are the ones where one glove doesn't mysteriously disapear

I wear these, not bad for $10 bucks. I love fleece! I also have several other more bulky Redhead insulated gloves.

Bought a pair of these recently:


I wear this glove more than any other glove out there. The rubber coating is great when griping a chainsaw or anything, etc. Use to buy this type glove at Walmart but they increased their price to nearly twice the amount Harbor wants. I just bought (5) pair of these today:

I really like these. Durable and not overly thick. I find that if gloves are too thick, for me, they're worthless. Unless I plan on sticking my hands in my pocket and stand around and do nothing. If I actually plan on WORKING, I like gloves like these.

For real winter work, I mean the brutel, cold, wet -10+ windchill temps, the Atlas "snowblower" waterproof gloves are hard to beat. They simply do not get wet and they keep your hands warm and dry. Expensive though.

Lowes has some dura worx lined gloves for a great price (seasonal) couldnt find them online but I think they were in the 12 - 14 $ range. Walmart has stanley gloves that I use in summer and the price cant be beat, velcro closure and leather palms for like 9$.

I just got a pair of these for X-mas,,, I do like them,, not to bulky and keep the working hands pretty warm. It is a good compromise in warmth, and workability!

My favorite winter gloves are the cheap thin white knit gloves. I buy a dozen for $1.99. Means I can use them as oil rags stick them in mud anything just throw them away. When it gets real cold I put the cheap farmer gloves over then.

These are my favorite winter gloves. They keep your hands warm and dry. Plus I dont have to worry about messing them up with salt. I just picked up another pair for $15 locally. I dont consider that very expensive. I have gloves that are 2 or 3 times the price and dont work as well.

I got a pair of firmgrips for 2 bucks at the Hd i use them in the spring/fall and winter they are made for winter but work well for me..they are like a cotton jeresy,work very well and they are warm..work good when emptying out the grass catcher full of leaves.

that's the hardest thing to find...gloves that offer dexterity yet keep your hands warm at the same time...most of them that offer dexterity don't keep your hands warm enough and the reallty thick ones keep your hands warm but take away dexterity...fleece gloves are never a good choice to work in...cuz they will get frayed and such....i have columbia snow skiing gloves for when it's really really cold...went skiing in canada and it was -30F and my fingers didn't get cold....other than that i have regular work gloves you get at walmart or academy or whereever....i do have some fleece gloves that keep your hands warm but i would never work in them...just wear them around or while driving.

I work in the "waste collection" industry for my day job so being out in the elements for 10+ hours a day I learned about a glove that is awesome for winter work.


Freakin welding glove and with a waterproof liner!

I also wear the Under Armour cold gear liner gloves underneath.


Adds a whole extra level of not only warmth but I have kinda small hands so it helps fill up the big fingers in those types of gloves that are made for big ol sausage fingers.

The UA's are expensive but since they don't take a beating I'm going on year 3 with the pair I have now.

Enless its snowing i don't wear gloves for mowing. If i get cold while mowing i put my hands in front of the muffler and rub them til i get warm. Works pretty good.
