    Cold here in Vermont and I need some new gloves. I need something to wear on the walks I take with my wife every evening. Roads are slippery, so I need to have my arms free for balance, etc. I do NOT need to use my hands for anything, so flexibility and movement are NOT issues. Warmth is what I need. I tried a pair of battery-powered gloves and they were almost useless. No heat in the fingers. Mittens came close, but still not enough. Anyone know of any thermos bottles for hands?

    Mittens with chemicaly generated heat packs, we use them goose hunting below 0 and they work very well.

    Thanks, Force Break! I did exactly what you suggested. Problem solved! Just got back from a long walk, fingers still work...

    Choppers with liners are great. You have all your fingers together keeping the heat in one place insted of isolating them like gloves.

    We used them for downhill skiing, because they were tough enough to withstand the friction of the rope tows.

    I think in extreme cases a small heat pack can go in them too.
