/ Waterproofing Skytech Argon Gloves
I have put nikwax on the back and this works well. However, any moisture buildup (and there is) comes from sweat.
p.s. i have yet to wear a pair of there out in two years (lots of climbing and ropework done in that time)
Based on a tip from a mate I've used thin liner gloves and marigold rubber gloves over the top for digging snow holes. As you rightly point out, it's a highly aerobic and wet. This is perfect for handling a shovel and warm enough given the activity level (and light to carry too).
Might have to get hold of a pair though for evaluation.
.... and you're spot on about it being aerobic and wet. I never work so hard or sweat so much as when I'm making my home for the night and it's blowing a bitch of a hooley outside.

I evaluated a pair a couple of weeks ago and had to pee sitting down for two days
