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 baseballgloves. 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 Good Gloves

I just received these, so I haven't had a chance to test them in really cold weather yet, but they seem like they would do well. They have good insulation, but it is not super thick (the next warmer model of Northface gloves costs $120, and I just did not want to pay that much). I think they will do very well in wind and rain because the outer layer seems very durable and windproof. I am using warm glove liners to add insulation for really cold weather, and because I like to have glove liners on my hands, so they are not exposed when I take my mittens off to do something.

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.
