I have found a pair of polar fleece gloves that have a mitten flap that goes over the fingers. The finger tips are cut off the gloves. These are great when I have to go out for farm chores and open gates and latches or give shots to animals and such. I can flip the mitten part back to have a better grip and feel yet mostly have the advantage of mittens which I find much warmer than gloves. One for me.
But I still haven't found anyway of keeping my nose warm without fogging up my glasses. Anything over my nose and mouth and I can't see. Any advice?

It could be because it is 13F (and dropping) and snowing like mad, but a hopefully brilliant thought just occured to me.Posted Image

How about a pair of prescription lens ski goggles?? They would take care of the foggy glasses and then you could wrap a fairly breathable scarf over your mouth and nose tip.

Here's to warm noses!

Brrr.....it sounds a bit cold where you are, Jeannie!! ;)

I can only imagine snow like that; in the South of the UK the most snow we normally get is just a small fluttering ( & that's enough to throw the entire transport system into total confusion!! ;) :lol: )
