John – Minnesotan and Arctic explorer Will Steger would tell you to "ditch the gloves" – for driving, etc they may be fine. I would agree. For time outdoors, wear mittens with wool, shearling or fleece lining (absorbs and sweat while you are moving to keep hands dry) and windproof exterior. Having the fingers together without cold air circulating around them keeps them warmer. All the old ice-fishermen wore "choppers" for exactly that reason – heavy wool liners inside leather or canvas mittens.
My favorites come from REI – I was even able to make slush balls with the boys, and while my hands got a little cold, they were nice and dry.
