Warmest lining for gloves - Page 2

speaking from my gut feel on material resistivity (i.e., insulative ability independant of thickness), synthetic material like thinsulate wins.

I have 2 pairs of gloves with thin linings, one has cashmere lining and one is thinsulate. Both are thin for maximum dexterity, but thinsulate feels the warmest to me. That said, I prefer cashmere lining because it feels nicer on my hands.

This is pretty much my gut instinct too. For dressy gloves, cashmere-lining for the balance between feel, warmth and looks. If you really need the warmth, a synthetic will probably work better.

I already have cashmere lined Dents, and they are not very warm, but they are thin.

Shearling or goose down if you can find it.

I have a pair of cashmere lined gloves but I'm in Texas, and can tell that anything below freezing would require more substantial lining.

If you were looking for a glove that was akin to an alpine ski glove but still look appropriate for city use, I would look no farther than Hestra (hestragloves.com). They do some nice peccary gloves lined in cashmere and fleece on the lighter side all the way up to full on all leather back-country guide gloves that are really ski gloves but are thin enough and so well made that they wouldn’t look out of place with a wool overcoat on a cold day. Much much warmer than any regular leather glove (lined with Gore-Tex and insulated with thinsulate).

They are the only glove (actually I wear their three fingered lobster mitt) I ever use when skiing and looking at them, I might get a pair of their peccary gloves for normal daytime use and save my Sermoneta gloves for nicer times.

After doing some research I ordered leather lined with rabbit fur* and am hoping they will work much better than the others. From what I read when researching these, the longer rabbit fur is the warmest which is what I ordered. I can follow up once I have them.


Leather gloves with cashmere lining, knit cashmere gloves and Uggs shearling lined suede gloves which I've tried over the past three years since moving to Minnesota from So CA didn't work well when it got really cold. I will not try any of these again. I've also had the cashmere lining get moth holes in it so it meant reinvesting in gloves the next season. 



*Just for what it's worth, in past years I've had two rabbit jackets. When the first wore out, I got another. THEY were warm and maybe topped only by a good heavy melton weight coat.

It's the same with me. Most of the time my cashmere lined leather gloves work great but those few times I'm out in subzero weather I reach for my Lands End gloves that keep my hands super warm.

Have "System" gloves, Hard shell outer with heavy pile liners. These aren't really practical, gauntlet style and a lot of glove.


Have been a fan of "Hestra" last few yrs, both knits/leather & leather with fleece lining, good time to pick up on sale
