For patrolling - Same issues, carrying boo, toad stabbers and dragging sleds. Can fry a pair of gloves in a weekend. I've used a $12 pair of quallofill lined leather work gloves with thin wool liners. It's been a surprisingly good setup. The wool liners are $4 specials from the running store, they do a decent job of keeping the snow out of the cuffs. I got about 50 days out my last pair.
