I bought some Hestra gloves a year or two ago to replace my original
pair, and they've been warm enough up to now. However, they couldn't
cope with Tignes last week, -17C at resort level so goodness knows
what it was at the top in the wind.

I reckon I should be looking at some top-of-the-range mitts. What do
people suggest? Ideally tryable-on in the UK, but I'd settle for mail
order XLs.

I used Columbia for years. Very good.

I shall have a look, ta.

Or you could just use thermal
undergloves as well?

I've already got silk undergloves, but they don't seem to make a lot
of difference.

I bought some under armor liners made of neoprene or some such stretchy
material and they proved really good in Canada last year. They are a fair
bit thicker than silk gloves and also have grips on the palms so can be used
a standalone gloves when it's a bit warmer.
