    That's GENIUS. I go on a ski trip every year, but I'm from the South, so I don't have waterproofed warm gloves, and my hands freeze everysingle year. Thank you for my fingers.

    i like the idea but with 1 downfall..those medical gloves rip so easily >.<..my suggestion is get the thick rubber kitchen gloves and trip the sleeve part off them..much more durable =)

    I've used this trick a few times. Figured it out when I forgot my good gloves one day while teaching an Ice Rescue class. Use blue or purple Nitrile medical gloves - they're tougher, fit closer and usually have longer cuffs, which increases the waterproof area of protection.
