I need gloves. That’s the conclusion I’ve come to. But not just any gloves, because I have plenty of those – I need gloves that keep my hands WARM. And I need recommendations, because all the gloves I currently own just don’t measure up.
My feeling is that I need some sort of NASA-grade material, but read on and post your suggestions, please.
Here’s my problem. In the winter, even when it’s mildly cold such as now (below 0, really), my hands freeze within about a minute. Seriously – I’m not exaggerating. And I don’t wear dollar-store polyester gloves, either – these are quite nice lined leather gloves.
The other conclusion is that this is the main reason I don’t take many outside pictures in the winter. And that’s what bothers me, thus the search for adequate gloves. I see plenty of things I would love to take pictures of, but I just can’t stand the thought of pulling my hands out of the relative safety of the moderately warm (but too bulky) gloves to operate the camera. Or maybe I need an old-person camera (like the old-person phones with have gigantic buttons).
- keeps hands warm
- has enough flexibility that my hands retain enough dexterity to take pictures (so, no puffy gloves that are 1/2″ thick)
- is moderately stylish (at least a 4 on a 10 point scale)
- doesn’t cost $400
So, anybody think they know about just the thing for me?
