I don't know if they are the warmest, but I've been using Pearl Amfib lobster gloves with good luck in 40 degree rain. And I think Pearl has ones that are even warmer.

I agree I have been using the Pearl Izumi Amfib lobster gloves. I have used them all through last winter in the snow and cold down to probably 8 F. They have worked well for me.

A pair of Outdoor Research (OR) ski mountaineering gloves. They have a stretch cordura/goretex outer with a pile (fleece) liner. They are a tad bulky, but super toasty in ALL conditions. Check out a local climbing/outdoor gear shop. They cost around $100.00 bucks tho'. Very worth it when it's only 17 degrees outside.

Personally, I thing Pearl's Amfib material sucks compaired to windstopper or G-tex. A buddy has the Amfibs and his fingy's are always cold...

45-60: full-finger light spring/fall gloves

35-50: old specialized lobster gloves

35 & under: PI amfib (fingers, not lobsters)

just what works for me, so far.

Agreed. With liners or regular, full-finger gloves worn underneath.
