Are you after -20 capability or just normal British winter type stuff?

Lots neglect their core in favour of high qual gloves, etc.

Layer your core and your body will take care of those pinkies.

Adopting a more relaxed riding style in extreme weather helps too, and you can wear lighter gloves but alternate tucking a hand in a muff.

My wife swears by it.

hi
ihave a pair of the seal skin winter gloves the only thing is they can get a little warm as they are waterproof , so they dont breathe to well. but great last winter when it was snowing
i also have an old pair of qranc (i think thats how its spelt )great gloves not too bulky but not waterproof. mine are now very old and looka bit past it but i still wear them from time to time.
hope this helps
regards
tony

I've often used paintball gloves that have insulated neoprene outers with suede/faux suede palms and inner fingers, reasonably cheap

just make sure you don't get the ones with hard plastic on the back of the hand unless you do a lot of of riding amongst brush/trees

these are just an example

i use 2mm wetsuit gloves which are the slightly shaped, waterproof, windproof and you don't loose too much dexterity, if you are worried about wearing out the palms just slip over a pair of mitts
