Looking for water-resistant/proof, wind resistant, and warm mittens or gloves. Versatile enough to be able to drive with, but warm enough for extended walks outside and waterproof enough for snow shoveling, etc. Giant ski mittens are awesome, but somewhat limiting in dexterity.
So this winter has sucked so far (it was still -11 °F at noon! yay!) and my current mittens are no longer cutting it. (I knit but I feel like natural fibers or even felted mittens are not going to cut it in this instance? Especially on the waterproof part?)
My dream mitten/glove:
-I prefer mittens, but am willing to look at gloves. I am also a fan of the "lobster gloves"
bikers often wear.
-Warm enough so I don't have to curl up my fingers and drive with my fists.
-Maintain some dexterity for driving, maybe a grippy leather/pleather palm.
-I am a lady, so cuteness is ok, but not overly cute (somewhere in between giant black snowmobiling mittens and cute pink ski bunny mittens)
-Willing to spend up to $40-50, so hopefully that is good enough for the things I request. I want good mittens/gloves, but they don't have to be Mt. Everest good.
Suggestions? Thanks, and stay warm!
