    Can you reccomend a good COLD weather glove?

    My old Giordana ski gloves aren't cutting it on sub 25 deg descents
    some gloves I have in mind:

    Pearl Izumi
    Craft

    Or is the best way go with some kind of 2 piece system?

    thanks!

    I like XC skiing gloves. prolly not as warm as say lobster claws, but they suit me just fine in Maine.

    Are you working up a sweat prior to the mentioned descents? I wear a pair of black diamond jetstream gloves and I LOVE them. Wind-proof fleece that does not get cold from sweat and breath pretty well. I don't really keep track but I'd say they've been comfortable down to the 20's. Good for XC where you are working it though, don't know about downhill plus...everyone's tolerance thresholds are different. That's what has worked for me.

    Some things I know:

    My 3 year old Salomon ski gloves work great here in Maine down to 10 degrees.
    Just like cold weather shoes they should loose enough to allow some finger clearance
    Soft lining with a thin layer of insulation and wind barrier outer shell.

    Pretty generic advice but this can be a subjective choice.

    Pogie Luv

    I think pogies are the only way to go. Stiff, not saggy, with a light weight glove inside. Of course, as with cold weather shoe combos, YMMV.

    Mittens

    I use a snow machine mitten that came with a thick polypro glove insert. I think I got them at Army and Navy. I've had them for about 10 years now. I bought them slightly large so that I can wear a super lightweight polypro liner too. It was between 20 and 25 degrees today and my hands were plenty warm without the lightweight liners. I've used these at temps below zero and they work fine for me.

    I have the Pearl Izumi lobster claw style. These have worked very well done to single digit temps.One good feature is that they are roomy enough to add a glove liner for increased protection.I am however beginning to eyeball the Pogies.
