What gloves do y’all use when chaining up? Any that keep your hands dry and warm and still have the flexibility to work putting on your chains?

During the winter of 2016 / 2017, I chained up 7 times. I had no specific gloves for chaining and just used my fuel gloves. Didn't chain up again until February and March of this year. I had a pair of heavy Lamont gloves and my brown fueling gloves. I had cold hands each time and they would get I would pull them off, lay them by the door, put my hands in my armpits for a little bit and grab another pair. The third time I chained, it only took me 40 minutes to throw on 6 chains. That was on Cabbage and I was headed to the house, so they just stayed by my door till I got home and threw them in the wash.

I do it the easy way, I don't use chains. Dont even carry them on my truck. Where I run they're not legally required and if its bad enough to need chains I'm parked anyways. Not helpful I know.

These are the gloves I use if I decide to wear gloves:


These are rubber on the outside with a cotton interior. I put these over a pair of the brown jersey gloves. I got these at the foot of Cabbage Hill in Pendleton, OR at the Arrowhead Truck Stop.

I’ll look for a pair of those. Thanks PackRat. Weekly runs through Colorado and by the end of the winter last year I was hating the snow.
