    Can someone recommend me a tough winter glove that also supports touch capability? Basically I want something that I can shovel snow with in the winter, and don't have to take off to use my phone.

    Carhartt makes some gloves that offer touch capability. I found a pair at Bass Pro not long ago.

    I got a pair of nylon/polyester gloves that are quite thin since it doesn't really get cold where I live, then I got some artic silver thermal paste, for better conductivity and then I applied it to the thumbs and index fingers for both hands, wiped the excess off and let it dry up, much better conductivity that the ones which cost a lot with limited touch.

    Buy some thermal paste, preferably arctic silvrr, then flip your gloves inside out and apply it and do the same on the outside and wipe excess off and let dry.

    (tried the whole "reply" button thing to quote, but didn't work for me...?)Anyway

    I have a pair of the CLC Subcontractor gloves and love them. I would rather use them over the Mechanix gloves myself. I have a pair that I've been using for a few years now, and am just now in need of replacements. The Subcontractors run about $20. I bought these ones locally at either Lowes or Home Depot, but now can only find them online. I'll be ordering two pair. The Boxer glove they have looks promising as well.

    Pair on the left is my favorite. They got their wear primarily from building my cj. About shot now. Right are the replacements. Were on sale rack at tsc from $8 or so.

    Been using these for around a year, and as comfy as they are they will be retired as they are starting to fall apart. :(

    +1 for Mechanix, I have been them up and they are relatively cheap for how long they last.

    I'm usually swapping between a set of Mechanix and my Fox riding gloves, pending what I'm doing. Most work stuff I'm using the Mechanix Originals, and anything for fab/grinding/prep for projects I swap out to a set of Mechanix Impacts (old style) one size over so I can get them off fast if I need to. Driving, biking, riding, and misc. stuff I usually end up getting out an old set of Fox Dirtpaws. Lighter, better dexterity, and more comfortable IMO than Mechanix gloves. I really digging the new set of Fox AirLines I got the other day. Slip-on, very breathable, and super comfy.

    midwest gloves and gear american bison leather gloves - i use these for heavier duty yard work (using the chainsaw/hand saw, carrying large limbs/debris, etc.)

    i have abused the heck out of these things and they show no signs of slowing down. they were very soft and pliable right out of the box and required NO break-in time.

    Used to use mechanix insulated gloves but the velcro closure on the cuff has just driven me mad. Other gloves i have the velcro is still going strong. Have just got a pair of 5.11 praetorian 2 gloves for winter ! So will see how they go. I know their fairly bulky but with what i do its not a major issue.
