What do you guys recommend in terms of gloves for wet and cold weather?

I'm looking for something that takes a beating yet allows me to work with my hands...

I am in Vancouver, BC...so cold is around -5 degrees Celsius (20 degrees F).

Thanks for the tip! :thumbup:

Start with latex gloves or nitrile gloves, then put just about anything over them and it'll keep you warm and dry.
+1 on the nitrile. They work great in the semi-cool weather since the conform enough to your fingers that you can actually work with them. Then in the extreme cold I use them as the base layer and put something over them, that way when you need to do something that requires more precision from your fingers you can pop off the outer glove and still have protected hands.

Yup, every year I try to teach the new guys that trick, most are amazed when they try it that they've never heard of it before.
