I need light, thin, everyday wear gloves, before I chew myself to pieces

My dermatillomania has worsened, and I'm biting and picking at my fingers all day and in my sleep, causing a fair amount of damage and pain. I want to find some gloves I can wear at night and perhaps at work to help curb this until I can get it under control. Does anyone have any insight into everyday-wear gloves? [more inside]

In search of the warmest, waterproof-est gloves in existence

My husband works outdoors in all kinds of weather, and he's mostly fine with it, but the one thing he says he still hasn't found is a good pair of gloves that keep his hands warm and dry, but that are thin enough that he can still do things with his hands (use tools etc). In the dead of winter, when it's 33F and raining, the hands get frozen quickly. [more inside]

How can I treat my stuff that gets torn up by rock salt

I gotta wheelchair. Inflatable tires. The rock salt put down for snow in Philly busts my tubes, which is an inconvenience at best, a possible safety hazard (if I get stranded in the Polar Vortex) at most. How can I pre-treat the exposed rubber around the valve so I don't get flats? [more inside]

All you need are gloves, gloves; gloves are all you need

Hi Metafilter! Can you help me find winter-lined leather gloves made in a developed country (the U.S., the UK, the EU, etc.)? I want them in black, in a women's size 7.5. I want to buy them online, but not from Leather Gloves Online.

How does wearing latex gloves keep fingerprints from being destroyed?

In pretty much every detective show I've seen, people at the crime scene wear latex gloves in order to protect any fingerprints that might be around. My question is, how does this keep fingerprints from smearing? Given that the fingerprints are just oil residue left behind, how does wearing a glove keep the oil from being displaced and ultimately destroying the fingerprint

high performance gloves while maintaining dexterity

What's the cutting edge in gloves that allow for high levels of dexterity in extreme conditions (e.g. north pole). A colleague and I have been thinking up creative ways to allow high levels of dexterity while keeping the insulation factor high. Say you're a worker that has to work outdoors in extreme conditions for periods of up to an hour, yet you need to be able to work with hand tools, press buttons, etc. Is there an industry standard for this sort of thing? Anyone have any info on state of the art (or near future) technology in this area?

Looking for gloves that are warm and work with the iphone/ipod.

I'm trying to buy some warm gloves that are designed to work with the iphone. In my internet search there seem to be several different brands that work in different ways but few reviews. These are going to be gifts and I need both a man's and a woman's glove and, since both recipients live in cold climates, I want ones where their fingers can stay covered while they operate their iphone. Can anyone point me to a review of these gloves or have any experience to share?
