    Could not agree more - so many runners complain of cold hands despite gloves, but they have minimal or no cover from ankle to groin despite rain/snow/wind. They are just asking for chilblains.

    For the record I usually wear Arcteryx Venta gloves, with glove liners underneath if it is very cold. In extremis - perhaps 5 times a year - I wear Marmot mitts.

    Yes.

    On my bike whilst I sometimes wear woollen gloves inside some that are more water resistant in the depths of winter I wear a thick dpd glove. It is so thick subtle breakng is difficult but at least I can feel my fingers and don't fear frost bite.
