I find that the layering keeps my hands warm, which I find critical, but if I need to use my fine motor
skills, I can just tug one work glove off and I don't lose much heat in the process.
In summer, I wear half-fingered bike gloves. In fact, I buy enough "boat stuff" at Mark's Work Wearhouse, Canadian Tire and MEC to give me a bigger budget
for stuff like foulies and tethers, for which I try to shop "best", not "cheapest".
I would probably have a pair of Grundens for high-latitude stuff where the air temperature might keep me from sweating in them, but usually I just alternate cotton and fleece layers.
