A good thin, warm liner to wear under some other gloves are polypropylene gloves. They sell them at MEC for $5. Thinner than those dollar store gloves but 5x as warm.

I don't know how warm leather gloves are (I assume most are form over function tho) or how cold it's even going to get but I would wear these under those.

Thanks jacked! I usually don't wear gloves but I was in an accident a while back which left my right hand only at 70%. Slower blood flow means colder hand in the winter! Need some more suggestion guys!!

Yeah... I too am looking for winter gloves.
All the ones I have seen are kinda of cheapy and garbagy.

I'm coming from Held Phantoms, so I'd prefer something with a high level of protection too...

i got some white pair at the dollar store. I think dollar giant?
they're nice and thick and a steal for a buck.
the ones I got were a thick fabric material with a brown tip.
they lasted me a winter and are super warm

If price is no issue, get snowboarding gloves from any snow shop in W 4th Ave. or any Sportchek or Sportmart.

They're made for snow, so you know they work. They carry nice leather Dakine or Burton gloves there, but expect either one to run you upwards of $50 - $100. You pay for the Goretex waterproofing and mostly the brand name. Some Burtons even have inner liners that act as separate gloves.

My current snowboarding gloves are leather, called the Pow Tanto. They work up in Cypress, so I'm 110% sure they work down here. I wouldn't use them for shovelling snow though, cause they cost a pretty penny.

For classier leather gloves, I'd hit up the Bay or some other department store. They all have bargain bin gloves. Buy it now, cause they sell out once the snow hits.

I only wear thin gloves. I'm actually looking at these at the moment.

The North Face$Men's$Accessories$Gloves/Mitts$ETIP GLOVE

for the average person, having bulky glove with a healthy lack of dexterity isn't really helpful when you have to take them off constantly to do daily activities.

The tighter the glove on your hands, the warmer your hands will be, and the dryer they turn out because the warmth will help rid moisture

Heck, unless it's -10 with wind or if it's really damp [on the mountain that is] I always wear the thinnest tightest gloves I can find. I like knowing I can pull zipper leads, reach into my pockets, light a lighter, smoke a cigarette, take a picture and perform various tasks without having to take off my gloves.

The beauty part of these gloves are the fact that you can layer them underneath a waterproof shell that you can find at MEC as well.

I tried googling for warmest gloves and it came up with finding "Thinsulate Insulation" gloves will keep your hands the warmest, is that true?
I wonder if MEC carries them?... I'll be walking a lot when the snow really hits this week so I would prefer some nice super warm gloves rather then the 1 dollar cotton gloves ... but I don't want to wear some super thick skiing gloves where I can barely hold a coffee mug...

Advice plz!

I think I saw gloves at H&M with a Thinsulate tag on it.
