Which cold weather Gloves I can purchase please?

Hey guys, I am looking around for a pair gloves for when shoveling snow around the house. I need one which will be waterproof and warm but since I have severe Psoriatic Arthritis in my hands with swollen joints I can't use those Ski gloves which are very thick since I already have issues closing in my fingers to grip the shovel.

I also don't have a large budget for this so just something which won't let my hands get wet or too cold and one which will not restrict my fingers too much from closing into a fist, any recommendations please?

Try ski mittens instead. No thin glove will keep your hands warm like a ski glove will.

You know, I never ever thought of that thanks!

My son uses mittens and I always used to poke fun at him for it. sighhhhhhh

Yes, that would solve the sizing issues which I already have fitting my fingers in the gloves and should also eliminate the restrictions when closing in my fingers. Is will look for one that is a little insulated and water proof.

You can also more easily use those little handwarmer packs.

glove liners can work well also at helping to keep hands warm when just the gloves may not be enough.

I have Raynaud's Syndrome which makes my fingers really cold sensitive. I switched from gloves to mittens. They are so much better at keeping your hands warm. When shoveling I usually stuff a couple of single use hand warmer inside the mittens.

Thanks guys, can you link me to the mittens you use and also the hand warmers please as my searches are showing a lot of different products and don't want to order something which doesn't work then I have to return and so on.

You might consider those mitten/gloves. The type where you insert you fingers into individual slots but then a flap covers the whole hand like a mitten. this gives you the option to use you fingers if needed and then put them back into mitten mode.
