    I usually have mechanix brand m-pacts light weight and durable with a little bit of extra protection if you're working on something. In the winter months I carry CLC brand handyman winter 40gram insulation they don't take up alot of room and keep your hands decently warm.

    look into http://www.officerstore.com/store/category.cfm/cid_88_gloves/ or any other uniform supply house. you can get nice thin search gloves from $15 to an average of $30 in many different materials from leather to Neoprene to goat skin

    Most of the us at the Sheriff Dept use and like the Hatch brand of gloves the best

    Agree with Shelby on the CountyComm gloves. O0 Like 'em.

    But my favorite gloves are neoprene- got 'em at a fishing shop.

    Fairly warm,don't creep,decent trigger feel.

    But rigging rope/rappelling rope eats neoprene.

    +1 on the nitrile/Lycra gloves.

    I have a pair of baseball batting gloves and they're perfect for chopping wood, working around the garage, wiring, etc. Much closer fit than standard work gloves.

    Check out Menards, Home Depot and Lowes. They all carry various types of handymans gloves suited to different job and conditions. A while back Menards had their Ironclad gloves on sale and I bought a pair of their winter neoprene gloves to go with my general contractors gloves I already love. The winter gloves give you good dexterity while keeping those fingers warm. The only downside is that my hands get sweaty in warmer weather and they still get cold in sub zero temps. I'de say that are probably good for 50F to 20F.

    be sure to follow the directions for sizing. they have to fit SNUG! for them to work properly.

    they're lightweight, stuffable, they have silicone grip on the palm/finger area so you can pick up something as small as a coin off of the floor. and the price is right. they're available at most sports apparel stores, including cabelas

    Try the Hatch Cool-Tac MT250 fit like a second skin, leather so they grip weapons nicely. No thick seams and extra material at the end of the fingers.

    I carry a pair of issue flight gloves in my pack or in my jacket. I would say they are nearly perfect for what you are looking for.

    I usually have a pair of 5.11 Tac-A gloves or a Pair of Mechanix gloves on me when I am at work or out-n-about.

    I would like to try a pair of Mechanix "Tactical The Original® Covert Glove" but cannot find them around where I live.

    I like to try things on before I buy them (Boots, hats, gloves etc...) I like them to fit just right...

    Does anyone have gloves that you can wear and still type with? How thin can I get while still keeping warmth functionality?

    Dakine makes some really nice gloves. I think they're "For Mountain Biking" but I've got two pairs of their 'small' sized gloves and they're great. Older models. I'm sure they've got some crazy stuff out now, I've seen a pair or two with stuff called DV - IIRC. Supposed to be micro thin and flexible until impact then it stiffens up. I don't know if that's of any interest to you but I digress.

    I wore them snowboarding last weekend in NC. They aren't water proof, so they were wet (to say the least) but they still kept my hands nice and warm (somehow). I could absolutely type on a keyboard with them (think thick surgical glove), and with some practice can say that typing on an Iphone probably would not be impossible. I can't say from experience though, so don't take me very seriously.

    There's my $0.02

    I just got a pair of REI glove liners to use as light-weight gloves I can carry with me most of the time.
    I don't know how useful they'll really be, but they do fold up pretty small.

    Try North Face E-Tip. Very slim fitting and have a special material and the tip of the thumb and index finger that lets you use the scroll wheel on ipods, ipod touch screens etc whilst wearing the gloves.

    I wore mine when out shovelling snow from the path yesterday and they are warm enough and very close fitting.
