Do you have need for dexterity or not? AS in do you do any job that actually requires you to be fully mobile and able to handle smaller tools during your job?

I enjoy the brand POW, they have some phenomenal gloves and are built for snow. They aren't exactly built to allow extreme dexterity but do allow some.

@coolphilip04: I drive alot for my job so I would mainly just need gloves that would allow me to steer easily.

@popham05: You can get leather driving gloves with thinsulate. I have a pair...can't remember the maker offhand (got them at Dillards) but they are very nice and very comfortable and very warm. Why the "no leather" rule?

Isotoner is good. They do make men's gloves in polyester. Fluffy and warm, but a little fat if you're trying to do something small (like typing).

There are several brands out there that allow great mobility and tactile response. If you check a law enforcement or hunting place you will find what you need. Law enforcement can't wear mittens or big gloves because you cannot grab a handgun and use it properly, and you can't conduct searches with a big fat glove. Same things for hunters, in a sense.

I remember another glove, a little less expensive called hotfingers. Their gloves had thinsulate (not sure how many grams) and were fairly tight to the hands, but would still allow you to feel with your fingers.

I would avoid any neoprene gloves during the winter. They make your hand sweat and the cold could freeze. They do feel like a second skin (depending on thickness).

My mittens keep my hands warmer than my gloves, but my gloves work very well.
I have a pair of PrimaLoft gloves from Eastern Mountain Sports, they're on sale as well:

You can also find them on Amazon, Gander Mountain, LL Bean, etc.

I needed waterproof gloves, so I bought a pair of snowboarding gloves from my local sporting goods store. The liners for the gloves work surprisingly well if you don't live somewhere with -10 degree weather.

I needed a good pair of work gloves for the winter. Found these on Amazon, they're great.

I like the Nike ACG Therma Fit gloves. They look like they wouldn't be warm because they're so thin, but my hands rarely get cold in them and they do a good job keeping my hands dry. I use them for everything, even skiing. The only time my hands got really cold use when it was 0-3 degrees out.

I could use a pair of light gloves. It doesn't get very cold where I live(nyc), but my hands get cold sometimes while walking the dog.

Recommendations for something not too warm and that don't restrict dexterity much?

@rprebel: That is mainly because of all the leather gloves ive had in the past havent been that good. I guess it might be because they were really cheap or jsut not meant for driving. Thanks for the heads up about the gloves at Dillards. The store near me is having some pretty good clearance sales so i'll go and see what kind of driving gloves they have
