Try living somewhere cold -these temps are quite mild when you regularly get -35 as I do in Canada.I am on a visit to UK at present and would consider the weather to be very pleasant. Try holding a tripod when it's below -20. You certainly don't want to have wet hands when you do!!

Very spring-like at the moment. Only -9. Last week we had -20 and I had to put a long-sleeved shirt on to take some fresh air on the terrase.Tongue This winter's been very mild so far.Smile

Quote: I find it best to wear 2 pairs of gloves. The inner gloves are made from fine silk and are close-fitting so you can operate youir cameras without removing them. Then wear a heavier pair between shots.

I do a similar, but much cheaper thing. Poundland fingerless (Steptoe & Son) woolly gloves under oversized ski gloves which have elastic wristbands to keep them handy when removed. The ski gloves were only a tenner from Decathlon.

I got some sealskinz riding gloves for Christmas Smile and they are excellent - totally waterproof, been dipping my hands in frozen water buckets to remove chunks of ice and fingers stayed warm and dry. Can use my camera while wearing them, took a bit of getting used to but no problem after a couple of days. They also make shooting gloves which have a foldback trigger finger which would probably be idea for photographers. They are quite pricey but definitely worth the money. It's been down to -10 here for several days and I still have warm hands!

If you look for riding or fishing gloves they should be thin enough to enable you to operate most camera controls without having to take your gloves off.
