/ Value Hot Mitts for Cold Hands???
Also, another question regarding wearing gloves. do you pull the gauntlet of the glove over the top of your jacket cuff or pull the cuff over the glove gauntlet and adjust the jacket cuff to minimise any gaps to stop snow getting in?
A pair of skytec argons (budget stash ice climber's gloves) work damned well I find?
Dachsteins or pertex and pile for value
Buffalo mitts are great walking mitts, but I'm not sure I'd want to do fiddly belaying in them?
Not ideal perhaps but perfectly workable.
Check out the ski section of your local TKmaxx. I got a pretty solid and thick pair of mitts just the other day for £20. The brand is Gordini, never heard of them before but they seem well made. They also had a pair of very thick pile mitts by the same brand, but they didn't have my size unfortunately.
Outdoor Designs Summit Inferno are awesome belay gloves, highly recommended.
Always have my gloves over my jacket cuff.
I've not got a recommendation for cheap mitts, but something that I have found to make a huge difference to having warm hands is a pair of cheap liner gloves. http://www.cotswoldoutdoor.com/blue-mountain-thermal-inner-glove-1c310263?id_colour=104 I've been using these for years and they are great. They also have the advantage that you can put damp hands in gloves without that annoying 'sticking to the lining' thing happening.
