    Same here... I get cheapo fleecy ones from Primarni who actually last surprisingly well, under any gloves that are water tight.

    If it gets really, really cold, I'd re-use an old fluffy pyjamas to sow gloves to wear underneath, again, often found in Primarni. That stuff can keep a penguin at the south pole warm

    Because I have Raynaud's I don't find any gloves really do the job.

    We bought these:

    Figured if they're good for a scaffolder they'll be good enough for us. They're quite a nice fit so have the feel necessary and are quite warm (and cheap to boot!).

    I find my hands keep warmer for longer if the rest of me is toasty too. If it’s really clod I like to slip a hot water bottle between my first and second jumper on cold days - tuck both pullovers into belted trousers to keep HWB in place. Not a flattering look, but cosy ;-)

    That's why I use them! I have small hands and I hate gloves with huge fingers!!

    I would suggest you try mitts as your hands will be warmer if your fingers are in contact with one another
