    Try these gloves
    http://www.harborfreight.com/cold-resistant-pvc-gloves-in-orange-large-99691.html

    They are usually sold as a different brand for snow blowing. They work extremely well. They keep you dry even in the snow. If your hands sweat i recommend 2 pairs as they will take a day to dry out on the inside. They are also longer then most ski gloves so they go a little past your wrists.

    They do get dirty and need to be washed every once in a while, especially after doing tree work. they take a while to air dry. i have not put them in a dryer as they are plastic on the outside. Not good for precis work with nuts and bolts, as they are thick gloves.

    You could try sealskinz. My wife loves hers. I just use fleece lined leather work gloves with thinsulate, but it rarely gets very cold here.

    I wear the gray Atlas gloves too. Cheap and they last. I still have to pull my fingers in sometimes when using the backpack. I try to pulse my hand to keep the blood flowing.

    Two pairs of brown 99 cents gas station gloves, and a straw for sucking it up works for me.

    I use the ironclad cold condition gloves. They work pretty well. Wish they were waterproof. Other than that, they keep my hands pretty warm.
