Sigh....I've got a problem: when the temperature drops to around -10C, I can't keep my finger tips warm. The rest of my fingers and hands are warm, it's just the tips that freeze into total numbness.
I've tried various gloves and mitts (Descente, Reusch, Swany, etc. including leather and with internal liners) to no avail. I even put my hands under my armpits while going up the lift, but it's not enough. Actually pulling my fingers out of the glove fingers and balling up my hands inside the glove does help, but when I put the fingers back in to ski, they freeze again. Arrrrghhh!
Someone told me merino wool glove liners are the way to go, but unfortunately I'm really allergic to wool, even merino (which apparently some people allergic to regular wool can tolerate). I tried Swany polyester glove liners, but they don't help much. Chemical hot packs don't help since their heat doesn't reach the finger tips.
Any ideas? Does anyone use electrically heated gloves/mitts? Do they keep fingertips warm?
