Do you wear fingerless gloves, and if so, for what?

  1. A hearty and resounding "Yes!" I started using Millar Mitts for winter climbing back in the 1970s. I now have a pair of ragg fingerless gloves with a half mitten attached on the back that flips over to warm the fingertips. However, for the warmest fingers, not much rivals a true mitten. Insulated gloves like you wear for winter cycling come close.

  2. Yes, now and then (if it isn't too cold) I wear a pair of brown Bison Fingerless Gloves by the Buffalo Wool Company for various activities (Fly Fishing, etc.).

    They're 90% bison wool, exceptionally warm, and Made in the USA.

  3. Yes...at work! I’m a teacher and the heat doesn’t always work in our building. I have a navy cashmere pair that I wear in the classroom on those days.

  4. There are moments when fingerless gloves are useful; when it's cold enough to where you need most of your hands covered but regular gloves are too clunky, such as when handling certain objects with a bit of finesse, like food, potted plants, etc. I used to own a pair of Brora Fair Isle fingerless gloves for that reason, before having lost them in London's Covent Garden Market a few years back. They're not a fashion statement at all; I see them as a sometime necessity.

  5. I have one pair of "fingerless" gloves in my array. "Fingerless" is in quotation marks becaue they are a pair of knit running gloves with the index finger tips cut off for touch screen use. Otherwise all my many pairs of gloves are full-fingered, some with e-tips for touch screen use.

  6. A staple to be sure! I have Barbour fingerless gloves. In just about every coat I own, plus spare pairs in the parcel shelf of the Land Rover, the MG, and the glove boxes of the Jeeps! Not to mention pairs in my hunting, and fishing bags. Just can't go wrong with them! Thanks so very much!

  7. Yes. We are thrifty and keep the heat around 60-62° so working from home i wear them. My hands/fingers are warm for using the keyboard.
