what kind of gloves do you use?
 
In very cold weather, what's a good a pair of gloves? I work in construction.

One of these types by CLC: http://www.clcflexgrip.com/

These gloves are great. They keep your hands warm and they are extremely flexible and sensitive to the touch. You can easily hold a screw in place, swing a hammer and really feel the handle, shoot a nail gun and actually feel the trigger thru the glove. I highly recommend them.

HD carries some: http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/...atalogId=10053

FWIW: About early fall every year, HD has a bonus pack of the CLC gloves. I picked up a bunch of them for our workers this past fall. They had the snow/winter versions (wrist cover): 2 pairs for $19.99 :thumbsup:

The Iron Clad Sub Zeros aren't bad either, but I'd call them "sub 50*s"
By no means are they close to the DTCo winter work gloves below about 40*

are you talking 40 above 0? heck, that ain't cold enough to even wear gloves. I'm looking for something that is good in the 0 to 5 above range but need a very thin front of the fingertips. (electrician and 6-32 screws and such) . any particular brand model that stands out for you guys?
