    I need to invest in some good, warm, truly waterproof gloves for my shovelers and ATV and snowblower operators- regular ski gloves get wet too fast and my trucks end up full of wet gloves…. what brand have you guys found is best for shovelers? They need to be warm, winter gloves, of course.

    My old Kinco insulated gloves are pretty warm but not waterproof, so for this season, I tried a pair of the Youngstown gloves that Mr. Markus mentioned. They're not the most heavily insulated gloves in my collection, but they do seem to be waterproof. Got mine from AW Direct in CT. <http://www.awdirect.com/waterproof-reflective-winter-work-gloves-medium/gloves>

    For times when my hands are wrapped around the handle of a shovel, or on the unheated grips of the snowblower for 30 minutes or more, I might go for something with a lining. I'll check out some of the ones linked above.

    Ive had a couple pairs of Hotfingers. They are ski gloves but my hands have never been wet or cold with these, if anything they sweat. Plus these have a little blow hole,lol that you puff a breath into the gloves and they stay warmer for a long time after. I got them at a local sporting store, they were like 60 bucks but on sale for half.

    Atlas gloves are the only industrial commercial gloves i have seen hold up. They are super warm and do not get wet
