Gloves - Which type are best?

I find magic gloves the best as they are tight fitting or snug fitting and I can leave them on when getting money out and doing shopping. They're easy for chucking in pockets and when it's cold I wear 2 pairs. Also magic gloves with the pads on are okay for driving in.
Otherwise I have a pair of sheepskin mittens but doing stuff in gloves is a pain when walking the dog or driving so I find magic gloves are best with the grippers or with a heat pad in.
I have a battery heated gloves they are bulky and have to come off every time you do something .

I've found very lightweight fleece gloves to be quite good; or the magic gloves that Christine has recommended and again wearing two pairs under a thick pair of gloves can also help. It does make gripping things a bit difficult, though!
I've found that they don't actually prevent a Raynaud's attack but they do help to keep my hands a little warmer.

walking boots. I like doing jobs like cleaning out chickens and walking dogs.

Have a look at our Raynaud's rewarming techniques. I remember someone saying that once they had a Raynaud's attack putting on gloves etc just prolonged the attack, they had to rewarm then glove up.

Gloves are can be hit and miss.
I like leather gloves with a lining of some sort and they’re good to drive in. Ski gloves in the snow are great but don't like the bulk!
You can get heated gloves attached to a power pack but again the bulk!
Try any suggestions and see what works for you.

I also should share that my husband bought me a pair of glove liners from a motorbike shop. I find them better than the silk ones that you buy from ski shops. I've not tried the silver ones or magic gloves so I'll get onto that. I had a pair of shirling wool gloves which I found pretty good but I lost 1 last year so I'm looking for a good outer glove.

I also find silver gloves really help and wear them throughout the summer but you have to have warm hands to start with otherwise I 'hug a mug' of something hot with the gloves on and that is heavenly. I have tried heated gloves in the winter but paid over £100 for them and then found them to be too heavy with the battery pack with very little heat!
Good luck in your search.
I have been trying to find a heated steering wheel cover without success - anyone got any good ideas for that?

The next time I go shopping for a car I'll only be buying it for the heated steering wheel.
I wonder if nice and sporty, automatic, something not too low so you can get out of it, tinted windows, has to have style, soft top, easy to park, heated front and rear windscreen (great in the frost and snow) a heated steering wheel not forgetting the heated seat all go together.

I wish we all had the money to go for 'Night Owl's' suggestion!

My remedy is a pair of soft kid leather dress gloves that stay on the heater and a pair of soft fine fleece gloves that I pop over the top; it works for me.
I have the ski type battery ones too but as the other girls say it's the bulk; not the most practical.
The cold hand business is a real pain and I can fully understand your frustrations! It's a 24/7 job.

I wear silk gloves and socks and they work well. I do wear another pair of gloves over the top when it's really cold.
Hope this helps,
