    We have a young lady shooter in our youth program which suffers from cold hands. It is due to exposure the last several years working outside around horse barns in the winter. She does not want a bulky glove, but needs some warmth. We are located in central Virginia so the winters are not brutally cold, but can be cold and damp. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    Cabelas electric hand muff. Operates on 4 AA batteries or rechargables. It has heated grips inside.

    Gun Gloves, in my opinion are not very warm. I have some uninsulated Windstopper gloves that are pretty warm, I have never gotten cold hands in the Windstopper gloves. Also, ColdGear gloves are pretty nice.

    There are a lot of "windstopper" gloves out there. Which brand is it that you recommend?

    Thanks,

    I use Gripswell here in Alaska.

    If it's really cold (below 0 or colder),I put some hand warmers in them.

    Trap, I picked up a pair of Ryno gloves at Dicks for winter shooting. They are black leather, 40 gram Thinsulate and all for a whopping $15. Sometimes, you just find a bargain.

    WinterSof gloves from Footjoy. Golf shops have lots of them this time of year.

    Winter golf gloves are pretty good but I can tell you from experience that gloves are NOT the way to keep hands warm if you are sensitive to cold... mittens are. And thin tight gloves are way worse for warmth than loose bulky ones.

    If she's going to wear gloves she needs to consider an additional heat source like a Jon-E warmer or heat pack in each pocket to keep her hands in between shots.

    Specialized websites that sell to law enforcement have the best selection. Last year we explred this in detail, maybe someone has a link or 2.

    I have used ssg winter gloves for years. They are horse gloves with thinsulate on the back and thinner palms. I use the all weather glove the rest of the time . Get them from Dover saddlery $25 .

    The Gripswell gloves have holes in them. BUT, they still keep my hands warm while shooting. Between squads I put big, orange shooting mittens over the gloves -or I go inside and sit by the fire. The second option is preferred in almost every situation.

    Save a whole bunch of money.. go to the local golf store and buy "winter" golf gloves. If it gets really cold.. use one of the shake up hand warmers in the back of each glove.. the blood runs close to the surface and will keep the fingers warm.

    These are what I have used the last year and a half. So far I think they are the best shooting glove I have owned.

    I appreciate all the suggestions. Everyone has been so helpful-as usual!

    I will explore the options with her. We have a local "tactical" store (5.11) so will check it out also. Good time to remind her of the obvious-thermal underwear top and stocking hat go a long way to preserving warmth without drastically affecting gun fit. I like the handwarmers placed in the glove on the back of the hands. Thanks again for all the help!!

    This thread has reminded me of something I've been meaning to ask folks.

    I do not like cold and I do not shooting in a coat...and I do not like gloves. So, I pretty much quit shooting in the winter. Then, about ten years ago, someone told me that if I kept my "trunk" warm, the rest of me would be OK. So, one day, I layered up: T-shirt under a thermal undershirt under a turtleneck under a sweater. I could still wear my regular vest, so I went out and tried it in 30-degree weather...and it worked. Even without gloves my hands were fine for the 45 minutes it took to shoot 50 targets.

    Has anyone else found this to be the case?
