Winter work gloves

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:

Kinco gloves are great unless you are golfing.

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.
