How about fingerless? Maybe not go as far as bicycle gloves, but
if you have an old warm pair that you could cut off just a bit on
the first finger and thumb......just enough to give you feel, but
still keep the hands pretty much warm.

I too have tried different gloves and do not like the 'non-feel' to
the controls.

I had an old set of those mechanics gloves that have a stretchy back and very thin leather face. I cut the fingers off and they worked great. I think they are only ten bucks at the auto parts store.

What I did and what works great is take a regular pair of fleece gloves and make a little slit in the thumb and index finger. I can hold the sticks through these slits without losing feel.

Hope above is clear, otherwise I'll post a pic...

Honestly,being a construction worker,I've had dozens and dozens of different types of gloves for work and I've tried all the fancy and expensive gloves with my radio and the BEST gloves for me,as far as feeling the radio and sticks,are the simple $2 cotton Jersey gloves from the gas station.I literally never use the word literally right.

+1 KISS Principle. Sometimes the simplest things are best. I cannot feel the sticks through a glove so the thumb tips gotta go.

Honestly the only thing that works if you use the "pinch" method to hold your sticks is something like this. Mine is 25 years old made of cotton shell with fleece lining called Radio Glove. This looks very similar.

Living in Sweden at about the same latitude as Anchorage I have had plenty of opportunities to try out different kind of gloves for flying under cold-weather conditions. Since a couple of years I have been using the Hestra Taifun Windstopper gloves the allow me to fly in relative comfort at temperatures down to approx. 0°F whithout loosing "stick feel" even though I pinch the sticks.

I've tried everything in the house except oven mitts lol

Racket ball and golf gloves work best for me in near zero weather. Still not too warm, but I can manage. Cutting holes in thicker gloves works sorta, loss of fine motor as the thumbs can't be extended.

However, whatever you try, try them on a SIM first to see if they work and to get the FEEL of using them.

Hope this helps,

Ken

Mechanic gloves are great!.. Tight fit like Isotoner gloves except this has a non slip thin rubber-like material on the palm and fingers!... All you have to do if you're a thumber, is to cut the tip of the thumb... If you're a pincher, cut the tip of the Forefinger and Thumb... Me I use it as is cause it's non-slip and I can still feel the controls!... To each his own!Demon in ME... Kosmik = Kostme

I just bought one of these and I stand right next to it when I fly. There is also a model that has two heaters. I too don't like the feeling of gloves..

TX mitt.. Keeps your hands out of the wind and cold allowing for complete control.. Could even toss in battery operated heating element for warmth.

I just try to deal with the cold with no gloves at all. No matter what ive tried, I just cant seem to get a natural feeling with gloves on. I fly electrics so the flight time isnt too bad or long. The weird thing is, I can be outside at home with no gloves on at all doing things around the house and my fingers dont get cold, but once I am at the flying site, my fingers seem too get cold instantly. Might just be a physiologically thing I guess.
