I have been looking for a good waterproof work glove that can be used in wet snow doing firewood or outdoor building during the winter in the North-East. The online reviews of waterproof gloves do not leave one feeling very confidant.

I love these: http://www.ytgloves.com/products.asp?categoryId=40 Waterproof Winter Gloves were awesome for me. They eventually broke down after I used them for three seasons, which is probably a long time. Running shoes break down after six months, so if gloves last you two years it's probably equivalent. I used to recommend Duluth Trading gear, but it tends to be overpriced and they soak you on S&H. You can find Youngstown Gloves on Amazon as well (http://www.amazon.com/Youngstown-Glove-03-3450-80-L-Waterproof-Performance/dp/B0000UJGYG/ref=sr_1_1?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1321540088&sr=1-1)

Duluth sells what they call 'snowblower gloves' which have a textured PVC coating on the outside, and a fleece-type lining on the inside. What I like about them especially is that they run a bit longer up my wrist then normal gloves. I used them for everyday outside chores during upstate NY winters (including snowblowing)....they may not have enough articulation for all types of construction tasks, but still worth considering in my opinion.

I would recommend trying neoprene for something as non-dexterous as firewood. While ice-core drilling in Greenland we would use insulated leather work gloves and change them out as they got too wet to be comfortable.

The Atlas 460 is a pretty good waterproof winter glove. As a commercial fisherman in Alaska that's what we use. Get them a little big and wear a liner underneath. Amazon and others have these gloves.

I certainly recommend my Leather Waterproof Insulated Work Gloves. I was a truck driver for 17 years and these were the best I could find. Unfortunately they weren't sold in any truck stop or hardware, so I was forced to become a distributor for them. You can see them at www.tomstruckshop.com. We sell them for $15.95 plus $6 S & H.
