    Cold weather gloves

    I have been looking for a pair of gloves all winter that were warm yet still allowed me to quickly draw my gun if needed. I have found the perfect glove albeit from an unlikely source and thought I would share. They are Taylor Made brand cold weather golf gloves http://www.amazon.com/TaylorMade-Str.../dp/B009T7VBHQ . They kept my hands fairly toasty today while I was outside for about 30 minutes in 0 degree weather getting firewood. Top of glove is a fleece with the palm and all of the trigger finger being a stretchy material like a cross between neoprene and suede if that makes any sense. Trigger finger even has some rubberized gripping. Its almost as if these were made for shooting as I don't know why a golfer would need the trigger finger like that. 10 times better than any cold weather shooting glove I have ever worn and half the cost. Drawing while wearing these gloves is just as fast as with a bare hand after 20-30 practice draws.

    I've been using the Mechanix gloves for the dexterity and durability. If its really cold like -7 F tomorrow I will wear silk glove liners underneath them. I will be wearing them in the AM to get firewood to feed the monster. I like that the Mechanix gloves are washable. I used to wear the leather & nomex flight gloves which were great but have gotten to be very pricey!

    Great tip. Have been doing this for years, when it gets really nippy.

    Lately, I've been using a simple woolen mitten, but they're not quite warm enough to handle sub-zero stuff by themselves. With a decent liner, they do just fine.

    I've also had good luck with a thicker-wool glove of this sort -- Manzella ragg wool, full-finger gloves. Love the stickier dimples all over the gripping surface. Can make a big difference.

    Of course, the Mechanix gloves do much the same thing, with more-contemporary materials.

    Another vote for liners - amazing what even a very thin extra layer will do.
