Cold Hands seeking Inexpensive Mittens
I am a road cyclist...current setup in the cold is polypro glove liners and long-fingered "winter" gloves (both from Performance).
This works well for temps down to approx 25 F. I also have a set of "lobster claw" glove covers (sort of like a windbreaker to wear OVER the gloves) but when temps get to 20F or lower even these don't work well, plus the 3rd layer makes me feel too far removed from shifting/riding the bike.
Anyway I am interested in an inexpensive pair of mittens (maybe ski mittens) for temps between 10F and 25F. I have looked around at WalMart etc but it seems that they only have mittens for kids, or the ones for adults are not windproof.
