Hey! I resemble that remark SL!

My comment was in reference to a phrase that HCH has used for himself when he makes typos, especially on coordinates. I was referring to the amount of material on one's hands if wearing those gloves/mitts, and how it would interfere with accurate typing and coord entering, not the size of anyone's hands.


See, that's where your wrong, again.
A- I don't use my choppers when I type.
B- I don't have to enter coords into my GPS. I know how to download them.
C- My gps has buttons, so it all thumbs when navigating on my gps.
D- I use the choppers when - A deer hunting, B-Ice Fishing, C- Plowing Snow.
E- I usually use gloves and or fingerless gloves when geocaching or using my gps in the winter.

And that's where you're wrong... again. Rolling Eyes

I was not referring to you and your practices at all, Cheezehead. I used your name ONLY in reference to the comment you like to use. The rest of my statement addressed the dilemma others have been discussing here about needing bulk for warmth but fine hand coordination for using their receivers and for logging. I did not want Splash thinking I was commenting on the size of his or anyone else's hands, so I explained what I meant by "fat fingers", which one would be experiencing if wearing all those layers on their hands.

When WiHI, RunNSearch and I were out in Waukesha yesterday we laughed about the"Friendly Miswesterners" HP had talked about.

I hadn't folded down my glittens and everyone was waving.

I have one of the $10 pair from geocaching.com. They are thin like these but it is surprising how much heat loss even these thin gloves prevent vs bare skin. They aren't enough on their own for really cold days of course.

For these really cold days, I've taken the advice in this thread and picked up a pair of chopper mitts to wear over the gloves. I like the little rubber nubs along the palms of the $10 pair that help grip devices, but that also makes them a little more difficult to jam into the choppers. So one of $5 pair I just ordered were for me for these frigid days.

for those of you who did not jump on the bandwagon last week at $5 a pair here are your touchscreen gloves at $2.99 with free shipping. we order quite a bit of stuff from daily deals they ship fast too. and if you want to save a bit more, use promo code: JAN5OFF and save a extra 5%.
