,,,,,,, lol you do have a point there.

I suppose it depends how much are you willling to pay and what look are you going for.

I have a pair of A-star red gloves. The color was right and the price was great.

Check these out. Perfect period styling on the back of the glove.

weird question i know, but i figured the laptop forum would be best to ask on account of the fact that the macbooks probably get used in more places and weather conditions than any other apple computer.

so my issue is this:
the maclab at my school has terrible temperature regulation. it's in the basement of an open floor plan building, and during the winter it gets so bad in there that my fingers go numb.

...obviously these are not ideal conditions when you are trying to work with a keyboard, a mouse and a wacom for hours on end.

so i'm wondering, does anybody own or know of a pair of gloves that happen to be thin enough to allow for typing yet still keep your hands warm?

i tried googling for a bit but all i could find were gloves with the fingertips cut off. those won't help me. i think i must have poor circulation in my hands or something because my fingers and toes seem to stay cold most of the winter regardless of how warm my body is. and working on a computer in a cold room just makes it exponentially worse of course.

any suggestions?

Ever seen what the tips of your fingers look like with the bones poking out?
I do and that's for just starters. Many weeks with someone wiping your bum, feeding and washing you plus other fun activities.
So for me, FULL gloves ie. no fingerless but I guess that's your prerogative.
I have winter and summer gloves but buy what fits, is comfortable and allows full use of the instruments. Brand, whatever the track blokes are using as they have the stuff that works.
