Hand warmers

I am off to Donna Nook with the UKPSG to photograph the seals in December and it will probably be very cold. Anyone recommend a type of hand warmer for inside gloves, or even which type of glove to keep my pinkies warm?

Re: Hand warmers

Quite often the coldness in the UK is down to wind chill. Therefore, you could try using some windproof cycling gloves. Cycle shops usually have a good selection and some makes can provide a great deal of dexterity. Woolly half-finger mitts over the top will keep you ultra toasty and maintain dexterity.

Sealskinz (brand name) also make some good ones that are synthetic everything proof. I think they are more expensive, though ~30.

Hope this helps,

Get a pair of 'Buffalo' mitts. They're not expensive and are warm even when wet.

Re: Hand warmers

I use fingerless gloves when it's really cold. You can get them with attached bits that pull over the ends of your fingers too, turning them into temporary mittens.

Mine came from our excellent weekly market, but I think you can get them from most outdoor / army supply / camping shops, probably fishing equipment shops too.
