    Easily 'Sealskinz'.

    I can leave my hand in a bucket of water wearing them and not feel a thing. Excellent gloves.

    I've tried heaps of gloves, not sealskinz though, and while some have been ok for most of a cold day, i havent found any that will keep my hands warm during the 1st hour or so of working. I plan to buy a pair of joka polar, which, while much too bulky for trad, should be ok for wfp.

    I've been wearing my snow boarding gloves. Great for wfp, little bulky for trad but better than cold, numb fingers. Think I paid £15 from outdoor shop couple years ago[hr]

    I wouldnt be without my sealskinz gloves. As well as keeping your hands warm and dry, they fit quite tightly which is great for trad work.

    A good selection of Sealskinz on Amazon. Quite cheap as well. Also try Ebay

    Joka Polar gloves. Brilliant. Only for pole work tho, too big for trad work.

    Each to their own but I think sealskins are rubbish - they fall apart. I only use them as a liner glove inside a pair of Joka Polars which are by far the best gloves IMO. also bought a pair of ski gloves from TK MAXX in sale reduced from £30 to £8. They are also pretty good.

    I haven't heard very good things about Joke Polars but you guys love them? Can any of you get a link here of your pair?

    They have a removable thermal lining which you can take out to clean. They are chunky, but a life saver on very cold mornings. Warmest I've ever used.
