Handwear refers to articles of apparel designed to cover the hand and wrist. The most common handwear articles are gloves, muffs, and mittens. Gloves are made from a wide variety of materials and are used generally to provide protection from the cold, skin protection from friction and/or enhance dexterity and grip such as the case of golf and baseball gloves. Muffs and mittens are tube-like handwear made of warm and insulating materials which can be both open or closed at one end.
The North Face Montana Mitt Extreme warmth

I received these for a Christmas gift from my husband as I have frost bite on both of my hands and it's been hard to find any mitts that are waterproof and super warm as my finger get cold so fast. Well after 5 years of trying many different brands and hundreds of dollars on gloves, these sweet mittens are the ticket. I use them daily out in the barn in 5 degree temps and my hands stay dry and warm. I would recommend these mitts hands down for any outdoor winter sport.
