I suffer from cold hands running in the winter, or more precisely cold fingers.

Tried loads of gloves of various materials and thicknesses, but would really like a simple pair of windproof mittens, but I can't find any.

There are :-
a) windproof gloves, with a nylon covering that goes over the individual fleece fingers to look like a mitten ( but the fingers can't get heat from each other )
b) sort of half gloves that have "fingers" up to the knuckles, then a single fold over big flap that goes over all the finger ends ( these look a bit better )
c) proper mittens but in really thick padded material like ski mittens.

What I want is a simple windproof fleece material ( eg Gore Windstopper ) mitt, where I can touch all the fingers together inside to get heat from each other.

Anyone know of such a thing - been looking at lots of on-line running shops and outdoor shops, but can't see anything exactly like I want.

Not the same things, but my ski gloves are a glove with separate fingers inside, and a mitten outside. They are incredibly warm.

Take a look at cycling gloves perhaps, they do windproof/waterproof. I notice there are some on SportPursuit this week.

kjt - wearing a long sleeve t-shirt when it's -10 might help you ;-)

Meglet - yeah looking for something a bit lighter, and less bulky than padded ski type gloves/mitts, but that's the sort of thing I use at the moment, then I can't work my watch, or get a gel out of a pocket, etc

I checked out loads of reviews on how to deal with cold hands and finally settled on a pair of Buffalo Mitts. They've been absolutely great for me. You can always wear a pair of thin thermal gloves underneath if you wish so that when you have to take one Mitt off midrace your hands aren't exposed to the cold. I have never felt the need to use the thermal gloves as well though. Buffalo Mitts are just great on their own.
