Mutant Modular Mitts
Otherwise, all you can do is keep trying to find a really warm glove. Or a mitten. Mittens are much warmer than gloves, but of course you lose some dexterity. A compromise product is Outdoor Research's Mutant Modular Mitt ($150; www.orgear.com). These are heavy-duty mittens with a Gore-Tex shell, but complete with separate forefinger openings so they can interact with the thumbs on their own. Along with the extra dexterity they afford, these are warm, warm, warm glove/mittens (mittoves? glittens?).
