Warmest working glove?

So I've been in search of a pair of really warm gloves for this winter, but there are so many options on Dover I'm stumped. So what gloves do you guys recommend?
I work 8 hours at the barn through even the worst snow storms, so I need WARM and waterproof gloves, but they also can't be too expensive, and the less bulky the better. So any recommendations?

I'm with you, and will be watching the responses! My poor little fingers freeze instantly, no matter what glove I use.

Now keep in mind that my winters are usually milder than other folk, but I have these and love them. They are waterproof (I actually use them a lot for picking the chunks of ice out of the tanks after chopping it up) and warm. They are a little bulky but not nearly as bad as many other winter gloves. I don't have any problem doing relatively delicate movements with my hands. I finally got 2 new pair the other day because the one pair that I had been wearing for about 3 winters finally wore completely out LOL.

We do have the occasional cold snap where the wind chill is down a fair amount below zero and these still kept me toasty warm. Even just a few days ago it was rainy and wet and cold and windy, the rest of my body was completely frozen but my fingers were still moderately warm...and that was in my old broken down pair that had holes in the leather in half the fingers LOL.

Also, because my hands are long and thin with really long fingers, I've always had trouble finding gloves that fit. All of them are either too wide and floppy or the fingers were too short and the place where the pinky and ring fingers come together on the gloves were up by the middle joint of my pinky. These fit my hands perfectly.

LOL, hey easy now .

FWIW, when it's really cold out or I know I'm going to be out in it for hours at a time, I'll also put a pair of those Hot Hands hand warmers inside the back of the glove where all the bloodflow is on the back of your hand.

Wool. I wear wool mitts, the kind hunters wear where the finger part will pull away. They are lined with flannel and are the warmest hand covers I've found yet. The palms have a protective leather like material. This is my 3rd winter and they are holding up well.

Your in Maine? You have worse winters than we do here in WY and SD. Bone chilling cold. Y'all are tougher than us.

I recommend Cabela's Pinnacle gloves. I can pull ice out of tanks in subzero weather and not get wet or cold. I am also able to ride in them. The gloves are bulky, but if you're going to be out for a while, they are very nice. I've never gotten frostbite while wearing them.

Way too cold up here for gloves, lol. Anything less than mitts gets you ice-cubed! Manitoba Cannada.

Any Carhartt has is amazing! I wear one of their jackets to the barn, and under it I just wear a t-shirt. I don't even get cold, its amazingly insulated!
