It’s windy today. I keep warm and dry with three layers of gloves. Grabbing my items like a crab 🦀. It’s challenging to do all things without taking them off though. I would say that mittens are the best for wamth but if you take them of every other minute to be able to do things, it’s not really the right solution. As a layer two, I have a pair of home-made felted mittens (Thanks to @emelievw). My layer one is a thin five finger glove (assembly gloves or wool liner) that I use while taking photos or operating the stove. By wearing these gloves, I minimize naked skin against metal and other cold gear. If I get too warm I usually take of my second layer (home-made).
