Actually, I think those are the ones that I had last winter. And I do agree, that model of boot was a piece of crapola. The lining came out and then I couldn't get my foot out because it kept getting stuck!! haha. Frostbiters were great, Icebergs are great. Not those though.

here are the Ariat Icebergs that I have now that are absolutely amazing. They have a zip up the back and are very easy to ride in : http://www.equestriancollections.com.../AT00414-a.jpg

here are the mountain horse ones I had that were so crappy. They are called Rimfrosts: http://www.fourwinds.net/engcloth/bimg/mw861818.jpg

I've been riding in Mountain Horse boots for two years now in the winter and won't ever look back! My feet are cozy and toasty, and they zip up over all my winter pants just fine. on occasion the zipper gets stuck at the ankle, but a good tug helps.
try lining whatever winter gloves you pick with some of the simple cottony stretch gloves. it's an extra thin layer that might help.
keep warm!

For winter gloves I would suggest getting the UnderArmor winter gloves. They are absolutely amazing, and keep my hands so warm. They are not too thick either so I can still tack up/ride in them easily. Also, the ones I got have little grippies on them for some extra hold on the reins.

These are the ones I got (although for a much cheaper price)...
Under Armour | UA Fleece Glove | 1006611 | $29.99

They also make liners that you could wear with a pair of thin waterproof gloves...
Under Armour | ColdGear Liner Glove | 1006610 | $24.99

As for boots, I have never owned a pair of winter boots. I just wear my normal paddock boots and many pairs of wool socks. They keep me so warm.

I have those exact under armour gloves...love the grippies! but my fingers do still get a little cold after a while...they are nice bc you can actually function in them rather then having a thick glove that you have to pull off every five minutes to be able to move your hands.

I have to stand up for the Mountain horse boots too... I've had mine for at least four years, and use them for horses and riding, and skiing/being outside. I live in Jersey and ski in Vermont, so these boots get put through hell, and they are AWESOME.

We too just got 25 inches of snow, and I walked around in them all day--they're the ones that go up to the knee. Awesome shoe, awesomely made. You can get a 'dud' shoe from any brand... sometimes they slip through the cracks.
