Glove fit - insulation compression
I am in the market for some new cold weather gloves. I've got a couple options scoped out that feature wind blocking and a light amount of insulation.
In terms of sizing - is it desirable to size up on gloves like these, to avoid compressing the insulation? I am thinking that some extra space at the finger tips, especially, is important, so no insulation compression happens there.
The roadie in me questions that I should buy something a little bigger than usual. But I also know that insulation compression = cold hands.
Any experiences/insights here? Go big? Or go "form fit"?
