    I like the SSG Winter Ranchers, my pair bit the dust early as a puppy decided to chew a few of the fingers off. I've heard the SSG 10 below are great, too. I have Reynauds so was thinking of trying a pair of battery operated heated gloves this year. Has anyone tried them?

    The Ariat's JB posted look good. I might have to get a pair. The cuff looks like it would keep hay out of the fingers which is my pet peeve.

    Good thread! I was thinking about the same question.

    NEOPRENE, lined with fleece. Totally waterproof and REALLY warm.

    I didn't have these ones exactly, but they look about the same.

    A bit bulky to ride in, though.

    The cuff is awesome - keeps debris and cold air out, and jacket sleeves fit over it and stay over it very nicely

    The ariats do look quite toasty.

    Beware of neoprene gloves that do not have taped seams. If they do not, they WILL leak water at some point or another.

    Well, neoprene DOES "leak" water, it's porous

    Are these supple or stiff. I have been using the SSG winter training gloves., and they are warm, and supple.
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    The neoprene gloves that I had were closed cell. They did not leak at all.

    They did split a seam by the end of winter, but they weren't expensive and I would have been happy to purchase another pair for the next winter if I'd still been working at the barn. There is NOTHING better if you have to do any sort of work with water.

    I have Raynauds, and the neoprene kept me warm and comfortable

    Carhartt's breathable waterproof gloves. I don't go anywhere without them. They're tough, comfortable, and I've worn them from 20 below to 50 degrees. I've even grabbed ice out of the water troughs without getting wet.
