Ski gloves or mittens – what’s better?
Which of the two keep your hands warmer? And which are the smarter choice for skiing?
The main difference between ski gloves and ski mittens is quite obvious: While gloves have individual pockets for every finger, mittens only have one chamber for your thumb and one for the rest of them. This makes them differ in two key aspects: dexterity and warmth.
Which are warmer: gloves or mittens?
This point clearly goes to mittens. As all fingers (except for your thumb) are in the same chamber, more warmth can be stored inside the mitten. In comparison, the separate finger pockets of gloves can only store the warmth of each individual finger.
