and did some research as to why.It used not to be as bad but even with insulated glove my fingers get cold very very easily..painfully cold


a technique developed by U.S. Army researchers in Alaska. In a room that's a comfortable temperature, submerge your hands in a container of warm water for three to five minutes. Then go into a freezing room (outside in wintertime unless you have access to a walk-in freezer) and again dip your hands in warm water for 10 minutes. The cold environment would normally make your blood vessels constrict, but the warm water makes them open. Repeatedly training vessels to open despite the cold around them may enable you to counter the restriction reflex even without the warm water.

I have used those but with my type of work mittens dont cut it
Guys I appreciate the advice for hunting purposes . I have a Hoodie with front pockets + I use hand heaters etc and thats helps out a great deal as I dont like shooting with thick gloves.
My issue is just life, My fingers are cold right now inside and get very painfully cold with insulated gloves outside in about 10 minutes. It sucks at work or any outdoor activity.

I see there are even battery operated gloves.. but they are really really thick and about $80

Yea Henry from what I can tell its either Raynaud's Disease or just a bye product of my arthritis. My hands are very arthritic which I'd say is a bye product of years of concrete work.
'm going to try that Warm water trick that the Army has developed just hope I dont wee all over myself in the process.
No Hot tub.. wish I did... Do not smoke
[rquote=1500105&tid=104642&author=rangerdvr]Try wearing rubber gloves under your normal gloves. Its worked for me in the past[/rquote]:thinking:
[rquote=1500106&tid=104642&author=jaytee]Do yoy know anybody who has one? Might see if they'd let you try it out and see if it helps. Might have to rig up your own ******* hottub like the two guys on T.V. did with the old clawfoot tub and bonfire lit under neath it!!:D[/rquote]

Yep the F.I.L has one of them bath tubs with Jets in it..might have to give it a try
