I have carried a pair of latex gloves (ones that are used for working etc, come in boxes of 100). Quite handy to have tucked away in the bottom of a sack for emergencies. Weigh virtually nothing, and provide windproof & waterprooof cover ... helps a lot if caught out by bad weather.

Could also try a large pair with thin insulation gloves underneath. I'm too tight to buy anything better!! Matt.

sealskin do waterproof gloves in the same vein as their waterproof socks. Havn't tried them. I use a pair of silk gloves as liners for my plain one size fits all gloves when it's cold, but like Geoff i get too hot

Mittens, though less practical, are always warmer than gloves and Buffalo claim that theirs are even warm when wet. I have a pair but I've not tested this claim! The trouble is I usually have to take them off after a couple of miles, even in winter, because my hands are too hot!
