Thats why I wear gloves with the fingers cut off :wink:
It's a great satisfaction knowing that for a brief point in time you made a difference.

but even that way after awhile the tips get cold too. But that is what I used to do when flying the rc helicopters in the winter.

Actually, that's an interesting topic... My fingertips get very cold during the 1st 1/2 hour I am out... At that point, I stick them in my pocket and get them warm, after that, they seem to stay warm for the duration...

I also keep come chem hot packs in my trunk just in case I get too frozen...

My feet are the worst though. When Chris and I were out in the snow flying, they got extremely cold and took for ever to warm up when I got home...

Babbman they have toe warmers too, and they work GREAT!! I have used them in the past. They have a little adhesive strip on them to keep in place while putting on shoes. :wink:

i wear black Sport gloves from Walmart that work very nicely. They are made for golfers and such. It takes a second to strip them off and put them on... and they have very good finger dexterity while being worn!

i'll have to purchase new ones soon. i've worn mine quite a while and have worn them out considerably; but they sure held up well... and lasted a long time!

They look professional and "sporty"... which is another nice bonus! :mrblue:
