Instead of wastefully creating a new thread, I'll just pop in this one for a second:
Any suggestions for very warm socks and gloves?
I'm from ND. Our winters are the same as Canada for the most part, but I have this condition called Raynaud's. It basically constricts circulation to my hands and feet (nose and ears also, but I can just wear a hat for my ears. Nose doesn't bother me). It gets really annoying because even right now, and it's still fairly warm for the middle of November (35 degrees right now), my hands and feet get painfully cold. And instead of just going numb when they get cold, I lose blood flow to different fingers or toes..or from the ball of my foot forward. If I pull my socks or gloves off, they're completely white. It's kind of hard to maintain balance in a saddle if you can't feel the ball of your foot.
Anyway. Any suggestions?
